British MPs rejected UK Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal by a margin of 149 votes Tuesday night.

The House of Commons now prepares to vote again today on whether the UK should leave the European Union without a deal on March 29. If this is rejected, MPs will vote again on Thursday on extending Article 50.

So, how is British media reacting after this historic defeat?
