Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May has managed to win the no-confidence vote, warding off a revolt by her own MPs but acknowledging that her time is limited in office.

“May responded to a no-confidence vote with a passion she reserves for when her back is against the wall, defending her Brexit deal and warning that ousting her could derail the whole process,” news agency AFP said in its report. AFP added that May had devoted herself “unsparingly” to delivering the 2016 vote to leave the European Union and was “ready to finish the job”.
