Vote#5: The big one; and as expected the UK Parliament voted with UK PM Theresa May to delay Brexit day (by 412 to 202).

As Bloomberg’s Rosalind Mathieson explains, now we need to see what the EU might agree to in terms of an extension. That is if May doesn’t get her deal through next week. There are reasons for the EU to tolerate a delay, but also complications around the European parliamentary elections that May needs to be sensitive to.
