Contempt Of UK Parliament

Theresa May has suffered a serious defeat today in the UK parliament regards not revealing the advice in relation to the Brexit talks!

Minister Andrea Leadsom revealed the Commons voted by 311 votes to 293 to find ministers guilty of ‘contempt of Parliament’ for not revealing the confidential advice given.This is the first time in UK government history a contempt has been called.

The Prime Ministers Big Vote on the Brexit talks is only a week away and today’s results will not bode well for Theresa May.

The opposition parties had initiated this historic government contempt which had led to the government now declaring that they will show the full legal advice after it has been examined by a separate committee.

The PM is going through some testing times as the crucial vote creeps closer.
