Petition to revoke Brexit crashes UK Parliament's website

  • Petition to revoke Brexit crashes UK Parliament's website

Alternatively, the communique said, "the European Union commits to agreeing, before March 29, 2019, to an extension until May 22, provided the Withdrawal Agreement is approved by the House of Commons next week".

May's statement blaming lawmakers for the Brexit crisis was received sourly by members of her own party as well as opposition parties, many of whom argue it is their duty to vote against May's deal as it is bad for the country.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday said the ongoing situation can not drag on "indefinitely" and that the "choice of the British people" has to be respected.

May also refused to rule out leaving the European Union with no deal, blaming parliament for blocking her plan but saying she was determined to deliver Brexit.

Asked about May's view on revoking Article 50, her spokeswoman said: "That is not something she is prepared to do".

The petition quickly reached the 100,000-signature threshold to force a debate in Parliament over the proposal after being posted on the government website Wednesday evening. She's meeting with the other heads of state on Thursday, but they are reportedly set to reject her request, offering only an extension until the day before the European Parliament elections take place on May 23-and only if the British Parliament approves her deal.

"If the Commons can not agree, as a last resort we would be prepared to take steps to secure a parliamentary vote on the revocation of Article 50". Brussels insisted on a "flexible and unconditional" approach, pushed by France and Germany, because of leaders' fears that Mrs May will never be able to secure the support of MPs for her deal.

She also accused MPs of doing "everything possible to avoid making a choice" on Brexit.

However, there is a chance the decision might be taken out of May's hands. No side actually "wins" with this deal.

Some social media users claimed this was due to a conspiracy to suppress the call for a Brexit revocation, but the truth seems far more mundane-the volume of people trying to sign or monitor the petition has in effect created what cybersecurity professionals call a "denial of service attack".

The PM had previously indicated she would seek a longer delay after her deal went down to a 149-vote defeat in last week's second "meaningful vote".
