May says she will not revoke Article 50 despite viral petition

Revoke Article 50 petition gains 600000 signatures as Remainers ask MPs to abandon Brexit

While it's up for debate whether the British government is completely broken, Parliament's website most definitely is.

"I've signed. And it looks like every sane person in the country is signing too", he posted on Twitter. "A [second Brexit referendum] may not happen-so vote now". "We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now for remaining in the European Union".

A House of Commons spokesman said the technical difficulties on parliament's e-petition website were caused by "a large and sustained load on the system".

Parliament will consider any petition that collects more than 100,000 signatures for a debate, meaning the movement could cause another Brexit argument in the House of Commons after months of scraps over how and whether the United Kingdom leaves the EU.

As EU Leaders discuss the Brexit impasse in Brussels, one of the ways to end the issue is for the United Kingdom to revoke Article 50, thus abandoning Brexit altogether.

The petition was set up on the parliament site shortly after Theresa May addressed the British public in TV appearance on Wednesday evening in which she blamed MPs for the Brexit chaos.

On Thursday morning, in the space of minutes, thousands of people clamoured to access the website to show their support for revoking Article 50, the formal process for leaving the EU.

At time of writing, it had garnered over 900,000 signatures.

Almost 1,900 people from Rushcliffe and 700 people from Sherwood have signed the petition.

She said: "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".

A spokesman for the Prime Minister said: "The PM has always been clear but that failing to deliver on the referendum result would be a failure of democracy and a failure she wouldn't countenance".

"We know that the Petitions site is experiencing problems due to the number of people using the site". Article 50 can be unilaterally revoked at any time until withdrawal, which means that no Brexit remains an option, from a legal perspective, academic Oliver Patel wrote in an article for HuffPost UK.

Meanwhile, May has asked the other EU countries for a three-month extension to Brexit, until just before the newly-elected European Parliament starts work at the beginning of July.
