LORDS BLOCK BREXIT: 335 UNELECTED Lords back amendment that will BLOCK key Brexit legislation

UNELECTED Lords in Britains upper house have BLOCKED key Brexit legislation in an embarrassing defeat for Theresa May.

Lords backed an amendment designed to give Parliament the power to set the Government’s future course on Brexit if it ends up rejecting any deal agreed by Theresa May later this year.

This means the Government would be effectively prevented from taking Britain out of the bloc without any deal at all – the so-called “no deal” scenario.

May’s failing Tory Government has already indicated ministers will push back hard against the changes, which would need to approved by the Commons before becoming law.

A total of 335 Lords backed the amendment while 244 voted against it.
