    Reports: May Will Step Down After Brexit Deal Is Reached

    British Prime Minister Theresa May told members of her Conservative Party that she will step down ahead of a second phase of talks on how the country will exit the European Union — the troubled process known as Brexit. Conservative Party members of Parliament told Reuters and other media outlets that May said in a private meeting that if she can get an agreement to carry on with a plan for leaving the economic bloc approved she would then step down. “I know there is a desire for a new approach, and new leadership, in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations, and I won’t stand in the way of that,” May told Conservative Party lawmakers, according to excerpts released by Downing Street and reported by the Washington Post.

    No Promises From Theresa May As Parliament Takes Control Of Brexit

    British Prime Minister Theresa May looks to have conceded defeat on her Brexit deal, concluding today that there was not enough support for the deal to return for a third vote, leaving the way open for Parliament to take control of the Brexit process. Following discussions with the Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and the leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), the Government's position was rejected by both leaders.

    Britain Prepares For No-Deal Brexit Even As MPs Vote Against The Move

    Parliament voted by 312 votes to 308 to amend the Government's motion from rejecting a no deal Brexit on 29 March, to rejecting no deal in perpetuity. Following the vote on the amendment, the main motion, as amended (that is that no deal has been rejected by Parliament in perpetuity) was passed by 321 votes to 278, though this vote is not legally binding. Brexit is subject to Article 50, and therefore in law that the UK will leave on 29 March, it will require action from Government to either change the law, repeal Article 50 (thereby remaining in the EU) or to come up with a deal that will pass through Parliament.

    ECB Stimulus Measure Isn’t Instilling Confidence in Europe ETF Investors
