Despite soaring support for the petition across the UK, Theresa May ruled out cancelling the Brexit countdown. She said she did not believe in halting the deadline after the EU offered a delay plan and said the result was 'clear'.

What is article 50?

Article 50 forms part of the Lisbon Treaty which was signed by all members of the European Union in December 2007, and it sets out the rules for the process of a member state leaving the EU.

It started a two-year period for Britain to negotiate terms of its withdrawal from and future relationship with the union.

What happens now?

On Thursday, EU leaders said Brexit could be delayed from March 29 to May 22 – but only on the condition that MPs vote for Mrs May’s deal next week.

If it is rejected in the third “meaningful vote” then the UK would have until April 12 to tell the European Council a way forward.
