  • #BREXIT British MPs voted against a no-deal Brexit, with 321 MPs rejecting a departure from the European Union without an agreement at any time.
  • #GROUNDED Boeing announced a recommendation to ground the global fleet of its 737 Max aircraft, as the US suspended flight operations involving the plane.

  • #CHURCH ABUSE Disgraced Australian Cardinal George Pell was told he “may not live to be released from prison” at his sentencing for child sex crimes.


British MPs voted against a no-deal Brexit in any circumstances by 321 to 278 votes this evening.

The amendment passed by 43 votes after yet another chaotic day in the House of Commons, ruling out a no-deal Brexit at any time rather than just up until 29 March, as Theresa May had proposed.
