Britain’s House of Commons voted to reject Theresa May’s deal to withdraw from the European Union for the third time on Friday, throwing the entire Brexit process into doubt. She lost by a resounding 58 votes, which was more than expected. “I think it should be a matter of profound regret,” May said. “The implications are grave.” Friday was the last day on which Britain could trigger an automatic European extension by accepting the compromise deal, meaning the country will crash out of the bloc with no deal in two weeks unless the EU agrees to a further—probably long—extension. That may pave the way for returning to seek a fresh mandate from the British people either in the form of an election or a second referendum. “I fear we are reaching the limits of this process in this House,” May said. An emergency European summit will be held on April 10.
