British opposition leader submits no-confidence motion in May

London - Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has submitted a motion of no confidence in Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May for refusing to hold an immediate parliamentary vote on the Brexit deal she has greed with the EU.

The motion says the the House of Commons, parliament's main elected house, has no confidence in May due to her failure to allow lawmakers to "vote straight away on the withdrawal agreement and framework for the future relationship between the UK and the EU."
May angered lawmakers on all sides by postponing a vote at the last minute last week, admitting she faced a crushing defeat.
A vote on the motion would be non-binding but could put further pressure on May after she survived a no-confidence vote by Conservative lawmakers last week and battles to save her Brexit deal.
