Theresa May’s Brexit withdrawal agreement was rejected for a second time last night – and the pound strengthened as hopes of an extension to Brexit – or even a revocation – rose. First, there is a vote today on the House rejecting the possibility of leaving without a deal, which looks relatively likely to pass. If it does, then the second vote, on Thursday, will be on an extension to Article 50.
