Blow for PM May as MPs back Britain staying in EU customs union

MPs back Britain staying in EU customs union
British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered her biggest Brexit blow so far when MPs Thursday backed a call in the House of Commons for Britain to stay in a European customs union.

A debate, promoted by the main opposition Labor Party, was agreed unanimously after a four hour debate in the House of Commons.

Although the vote is not binding on the government, many politicians believe it will influence May's future thinking on a deal she wants with the European Union after Britain leaves the bloc.

The vote means the House of Commons will formally ask the government to remain in a customs union with the EU.

May has insisted that Britain will leave both the customs union and European single market when it parts company with the EU.
