UK tries to avert 'absolute catastrophe' Brexit with 11th hour vote in Parliament

British lawmakers face a new Brexit test Wednesday as they vote on whether the country should leave the European Union without a formal exit deal.

Britain's Parliament rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's withdrawal agreement with the EU for the second time in as many months late Tuesday in a move that dramatically increased political and business uncertainty over what happens next.

A "no deal" Brexit, according to analysts and political scientists could lead to chaos at ports, grounded flights, traffic jams and food shortages. Buckingham Palace has re-purposed a Cold War-era emergency escape plan for Queen Elizabeth II in the event this default EU-divorce position causes social unrest or other disturbances.
