With Britain set to leave the European Union in two weeks, Parliament on Friday, with a 334 to 286 vote, rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan to exit the bloc for a third time.

Britain was originally to leave the European Union today, March 29.

“The implications of the house’s decision are grave,” the prime minister said following Friday’s vote

With no formal agreement in place, the result could be a so-called “hard” or no-deal Brexit, yet another vote on the prime minister’s deal, or even a second referendum.

A hard Brexit is likely to be chaotic for both sides as it would effectively cut ties between the United Kingdom and the European Union without any agreements in place. The potential economic damage could leave Britain with a shortage of food and medicine, economists have predicted.

The prime minister may also ask European leaders for a long postponement while Britain ponders its next step.
