Pound Sterling (GBP) Investors Await May’s No-Confidence Vote Outcome Published: 16 Jan at 4 PM 2019
Pound Sterling (GBP) The Pound (GBP) remained steady today despite Prime Minister Theresa May’s crushing defeat over her Brexit deal last night, which was rejected by 230 votes – the largest government defeat in modern history. This was followed by the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, immediately tabling a motion of no confidence in Theresa May, which will be put to the vote this evening.
