In an unprecedented move, British lawmakers temporarily took control of the Brexit process from Prime Minister Theresa May Monday night.

The details: Members of the U.K. Parliament defeated the government in a 329 to 302 vote on a cross-party Brexit amendment, giving MPs control Wednesday to vote on a series of alternative measures to May's withdrawal deal with the European Union, which she has failed to pass through the House of Commons.
