    During her address, May claimed that she paid close attention to what the MPs had to say, and reaffirmed her determination to leave the EU on March 29.

    UK Prime Minister Theresa May ended up evoking laughter from the assembled members of parliament as she addressed the House of Commons after cancelling the vote on her Brexit deal.

    "I’ve listened very carefully to what has been said in this chamber and out of it by members from all sides," May said, with those in attendance laughing at nearly every statement she made.

    ​The prime minister also reaffirmed the determination to leave the EU on March 29.

    Some Twitter users were not amused by this development and were quick to voice their opinion of May's actions.

    The House of Commons vote, which is going to determine whether the terms for the UK’s exit from the EU negotiated by May would be approved or rejected, was originally scheduled to take place on December 11.
