Theresa May survives but what does that mean for trade?

From Summer Report, 8:35 am on 17 January 2019

the British Prime Minister Theresa May has won a no-confidence vote in her government this morning - 306 votes against her govt, 325 in favour. The victory may come as some solace to Mrs May - after a major blow to her Brexit plans yesterday - with MPs savagely rejecting her proposed deal dictating how the UK's divorce with the European Union would take place. But what does this all mean here in New Zealand? The former trade deal negotiator Charles Finny says the no-confidence vote has ultimately been a bit of a distraction - it's what happens now regarding Brexit that's important.
