'The end of May': UK front pages react to Brexit latest

Prime Minister Theresa May has pledged to step down as PM for the next round of Brexit negotiations.

MPS VOTED AGAINST eight motions in the House of Commons yesterday evening in an attempt to indicate a majority for what type of Brexit they want and break the deadlock. 

Among the suggestions rejected were leaving the EU without a deal, and revoking Article 50 to avoid a no deal.

Speaking after the vote, Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay told the House of Commons that the failure to garner majority support from MPs for any motion strengthened the view that it was “necessary to back the Withdrawal Agreement” struck between the EU and Prime Minister Theresa May. 

Meanwhile, May has pledged to step down as PM for the next round of Brexit negotiations. So, let’s see what spin the UK’s newspapers have put on the latest developments.
