"The EU's contingency measures will not and can not mitigate the overall impact of a "no-deal" scenario, nor do they in any way compensate for the lack of preparedness or replicate the full benefits of EU membership", the commission statements said.
"The prime minister and her government have proved completely incapable of delivering on the result of the 2016 vote, which is why it is right that this should now go back to the people", Sturgeon said on stage, according to the paper. At that time the United Kingdom would have to create a new plan or leave the European Union with a "no-deal" Brexit.
Labour leader Tom Watson spoke at the march along with MPs from all other major parties. The newspaper cited 11 unidentified senior ministers and said they had agreed that the prime minister should stand down, warning that she has become a toxic and erratic figure whose judgment has "gone haywire".
The new updated deadline for Brexit now is 12th April unless a deal is rejected or any other arrangements made.
"Common Market 2.0 can break the Brexit deadlock... there's clearly no majority in parliament for no-deal... equally however there is no majority in Parliament for a second referendum and no real chance of Theresa May ever agreeing to one", wrote Lucy Powell, a Labour MP behind the initiative, on the Labour news site LabourList. But across the country you can see the anger. At one of the most important junctures for the country since World War Two, British politics was at fever pitch and, almost three years since the 2016 referendum, it was still unclear how, when or if Brexit will ever take place.
The petition's webpage gained enough support to crash the government's website several times over the weekend, causing a message to appear telling users it was "down for maintenance" and asking them to "please try again later". Article 50 is the exit clause in the European Union treaty.
The EU has been preparing for the possibility of a "hard" Brexit from December 2017.
"The government repeatedly claims exiting the European Union is "the will of the people". A People's Vote may not happen - so vote now".
"What the party has said is there must be a public vote and we said we'd either put down an amendment ourselves or support an amendment, and that needs to be between a credible Leave option and Remain", he said.
The petition was posted Wednesday, and as of Saturday, 4.7 million people had signed their names, pushing it well above the 100,000 signatures required to open a debate in Parliament.
Leave-backing walkers who have taken part in the Brexit Betrayal march from Sunderland are due to arrive in London on Friday.
They carried blue European Union flags, wore hats decorated with gold European Union stars and waved anti-Brexit banners, some with the official "Put it to the People" slogan of the march organizers. According to the BBC, former U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage rejoined the group Saturday.
