Finally!!! UK Parliament Approves Brexit Deal

Intro

The United Kingdom parliament Thursday  finally approved Brexit, allowing it to become the first country to leave the European Union later this month, after years of arguments that ended two governments.

There was all round cheers in the House of Commons after MPs ratified Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s divorce deal with Brussels by 330 votes to 231.

For much of the time since the 2016 Brexit referendum, lawmakers have been at each others’ throats over how, when or even if Britain should leave its closest trading partners after nearly 50 years.
