    UK: No "No-deal" vote lost...

    Saw a twitter thread where dozens of brits were claiming to be depressed by the turn of the days events...

    Not about the picnic in HK if you were wondering.

    Conservative leadership candidates including Boris Johnson hoping to force a “deal or no deal” Brexit in October have been handed a boost after MPs defeated a Labour-led attempt to tie the next prime minister’s hands.
    Tory MPs cheered as the motion was defeated by a majority of 11 on Wednesday night, after which Jeremy Corbyn was heard to say: “You won’t be cheering in September.”

    not too sure if it was party line.

    It was defeated by 11 votes after eight Labour MPs voted with the government and 13 abstained, cancelling out 10 Conservative rebels who voted with Labour.
