(Worthy News) - British lawmakers voted Thursday to seek a three-month delay in Britain's scheduled March 29 split from the 28-nation European Union after overwhelmingly voting against holding a new Brexit referendum.
The House of Commons voted 412-202 to seek the delay after being unable in several votes this week to muster a majority for an exit plan.
The vote to delay calls on Prime Minister Theresa May to seek an extension from the EU until June 30. The lawmakers have already twice rejected her plans for Brexit, but by law, Britain will leave the EU on March 29 with or without a deal, unless it cancels Brexit or secures the delay.
