UK Prime Minister Theresa May Faces Brexit Disaster and No-Confidence Vote

Worldview will give you a peak into democracy--British style. Today, we bring you some of the hits from this morning’s “Prime Minister’s Questions.” Theresa May was handed her worst political defeat Tuesday night, as the U.K. House of Commons overwhelmingly voted down her plan for the U.K. to officially leave the European Union (Brexit) on March 29. She now faces a no-confidence vote at 1pm CT. We’ll also play clips from Parliamentary debate ahead of the vote that could topple the Tory government. Then for analysis, we turn to the BBC’s  Washington correspondent, Gary O’Donoghue. He was the BBC’s Westminster correspondent for years.
