The Latest: UK speaker deals new blow to govt Brexit planThe speaker of Britain’s House of Commons has turned down the government’s bid for a new vote on its Brexit divorce deal, in a blow to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s plan to take the country out of the European Union at the end of the month. Speaker John Bercow says the vote the government wants is “in substance the same” as one held on Saturday and so breaches Parliament’s rules. Johnson struck a deal with the 27 other EU countries last week.
