The house unanimously agreed to maintain its membership of the European Union. Earlier in the week, the British Prime Minister, Theresa May ruled out a second referendum or a general election on the terms of Britain’s exit from the European Union.
However, upon careful consideration of the ramifications of leaving the Union by Parliament decided to not to invoke Article 50, the protocol for a member state leaving the EU. The referendum cost the former Prime Minister David Cameron his position.
“Upon a very critical look at the numerous disadvantages and the preceding catastrophe, we have decided maintain our membership of the European Union with no further delay” Rt. Hon Boris Johnson said.
