May set for Lords defeat on Europeans' post-Brexit rights

May set for Lords defeat on Europeans' post-Brexit rightsThe House of Lords looks set Wednesday to defy Prime Minister Theresa May by demanding guarantees for EU nationals living in Britain, delaying a bill she needs to start Brexit negotiations. The opposition Labour party is hopeful it can push through an amendment to legislation empowering May to trigger Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty, which begins two years of divorce talks. Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon also this week warned she may be forced to call for a new independence referendum to defend Scotland’s rights.
