Brexit: Petition to revoke Article 50 hits one million signatures

Share
The EU has agreed to postpone Brexit from next Friday and give UK Prime Minister Theresa May more time to get her withdrawal deal approved in Parliament

Protesters dressed as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May attend an anti-Brexit demonstration in front of European Commission headquarters in Belgium on Thu., March 21, 2019.

That means both the House of Commons and the House of Lords could, if they wanted to, reject the EU's extension - meaning the March 29 deadline would remain and Britain would crash out of the European Union with no deal.

United Kingdom lawmakers have already rejected the deal twice.

If Parliament rejects her proposal once again, "at this point we would either leave with no deal, or put forward an alternative plan", she said, according to the New York Times. Once source said the cabinet was in "panic mode" now.

The 3 million milestone was reached after May bid to secure a delay to Brexit at a summit of European Union leaders in Brussels on Thursday night. "A [second Brexit referendum] may not happen-so vote now". It can only bring closure if we're all involved in making the decision.

She hopes to persuade reluctant pro-Brexit lawmakers that backing her deal is their only hope of leaving soon and in an orderly fashion, and to convince pro-EU legislators that they must choose between her deal and a chaotic no-deal Brexit.

After a lengthy discussion, the council today also agreed, subject to a successful vote next week, that in order to provide time for the UK Parliament to agree and ratify a Brexit deal, the date of our departure will now be extended to 22 May.

Playing along with the blunder, Cook changed his Twitter name to Tim followed by Apple's logo. Cook even changed his name on Twitter to reflect his new presidential nickname.

EU Council president and summit host Donald Tusk said the decision had been unanimous and that he was now presenting it to May.

Corbyn was asked if he would consider revoking Article 50 and he did not rule it out.

The principal aim of their extension offer is thus to give Parliament the opportunity to force through a softer version of Brexit, or "even for the British to have a general election to break the current political impasse".

An online petition started in Britain on Wednesday asking for the government to do this has garnered more than 2.5 million signatures so far. "I think the choice is clear for people".

Despite acknowledging that "the public have had enough", May is set to plough on with her My Way Or The Highway attitude, as a Downing Street spokesperson explains: "the prime minister has always been clear that failing to deliver on the referendum result would be a failure of our democracy and something she couldn't countenance".

The Speaker of the House, John Bercow, however, has said he won't allow it unless her motion is substantially different from the last attempts.
