    May's abrupt move less than 30 hours before parliament was to vote opens up a range of possibilities from a Brexit without a deal, a last-minute agreement or another EU referendum. Admitting she faced defeat on Britain's potentially biggest political and economic shift since World War Two, May was laughed at by some lawmakers when she said there was broad support for key aspects of her deal reached with the EU last month. With her position in jeopardy, May said she would now go back to the EU and seek reassurances over the so-called Irish "backstop", an insurance policy to ensure no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland.
