A day after her Brexit plan suffered the worst parliamentary defeat in modern British political history, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has survived a motion of no-confidence brought by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn by a vote of 325-306.

Still, May is no closer to delivering on Brexit with 10 weeks left until the U.K. is scheduled to leave the European Union.
