British Prime Minister Theresa May faces the prospect of defeat in a historic parliamentary vote on her Brexit deal, which is due to take place on January 15.

May urged lawmakers on Monday to take a second look at her deal but parliament appears set to reject the agreement at the upcoming voting session.
