The UK Parliament votes to trigger Brexit.

In a victory for Prime Minister Theresa May, the UK Parliament’s House of Commons voted overwhelmingly to trigger Britain’s exit from the European Union, defeating attempts by pro-EU lawmakers to attach extra conditions to her plan to start divorce talks by March 31. 494 to 122 lawmakers voted in favor of a law giving EU nationals the automatic right to remain in the UK as the first piece of legislation to authorise Brexit made its way through the Commons, ending days of intense debate which have tested May’s slim parliamentary majority.
