Voters give their views on May's Brexit deal

If the British parliament agrees May's divorce deal in the next few days, the delay would be until May 22 to give MPs time to ratify the text.

"If it appears that there is not sufficient support to bring the deal back next week, or the House rejects it again, we can ask for another extension before 12 April, but that will involve holding European Parliament elections", May wrote.

The globalist politician said: "The UK government will still have a choice of a deal, no-deal, a long extension or revoking Article 50".

Instead the 27 European Union leaders offered her two dates: a delay until 22 May if MPs approve her withdrawal deal in a vote next week, or a shorter delay until 12 April if they reject it.

European Council President Donald Tusk said that until 12 April, "all options will remain open and the cliff-edge date will be delayed".

A petition calling for the United Kingdom to revoke Article 50, reversing a policy to leave the European Union, has crashed the United Kingdom parliament's petitions website after more than half a million people rushed to sign.

During the leaders' discussion, Tusk shuttled between the EU-27 and May to keep the British prime minister informed and have her consent for the emerging timetable.

Britain would need time to legislate to take part in the May 23 to 26 election, and May has insisted it will not try, preferring in her words "to honour" voters' decision to end London's 46-year-old membership.

He said that last option could lead to a delay of nine months, 12 months or longer.

The MCAS is an automated safety feature on the 737 Max created to prevent the plane from entering into a stall or losing lift. It comes as Ethiopia's transport minister confirmed the black box from the plane is in good condition.

Users were quick to share the petition, with celebrities and MPs tweeting their support for Parliament to revoke the Treaty of Lisbon clause which deals with leaving the EU.

May is hoping that the European Union summit's approval of fresh guarantees about the agreement will overcome the speaker's objections, but even if the deal goes forward rebel MPs may seize control of the process.

This would trigger a Conservative Party leadership contest whose victor would be the new prime minister.

Although until the petition surpasses 17.4 million (the amount of people who voted Leave in 2016), I wouldn't hold your breath.

Under Thursday's deal, May 22 will be the departure date if the British parliament finally approves next week May's withdrawal agreement after twice resoundingly rejecting it.

Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU.

Mrs May is expected to table secondary legislation which needs to go though Parliament by Friday in order to remove the date of 29 March from Brexit legislation.

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.
