How Britain will exit the European remained unclear Wednesday as Parliament voted to reject a no-deal Brexit.

Members of Parliament voted 321 in favour to 278 against on a government motion that they do not want to leave without a deal - a move that has been dubbed a "cliff-edge" departure.

Before that, they voted 312 to 308 on an amendment to reject leaving the bloc without an agreement under any circumstances.

It was one of a series of votes on Brexit and means lawmakers can now get a vote (planned for Thursday) on extending the process, meaning the March 29 date touted for the past two years is no more.

In addition, MPs voted 374 in favor to 164 against to reject a plan to delay the exit until May 22, so there could be a "managed no deal"
