UK PM May spars with opposition leader Corbyn in parliament over Brexit

2019-01-16 16:29
British Prime Minister Theresa May and opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn clashed over Brexit in parliament on Wednesday (January 16) in a fiery Prime Minister's Question session. A day after May's parliamentary loss by the worst margin for a British government in modern times, Corbyn called for a general election. May stressed that had no intention to revoke Article 50 and in turn, accused Corbyn of not having a clear Brexit plan. With the clock ticking down to March 29, the date set in law for Brexit, the United Kingdom is now in the deepest political crisis in half a century as it grapples with how, or even whether, to exit the European project it joined in 1973.
