May has not yet confirmed whether she will bring back her Brexit deal for a third time, after the previous votes were defeated by 230 and then 149 votes.

The march featured people of all ages who were lead in chants for a "people's vote". But she may be persuaded that her position is untenable if Cabinet ministers and other senior party members desert her.

Article 50 of the Treaty of the European Union lays out the procedure for member states to voluntarily leave the EU.

"The PM and a number of government ministers met today at Chequers for lengthy talks with senior colleagues about delivering Brexit", the spokesperson said, according to Reuters.

Lidington is May's de-facto deputy and stands in for her when she is unavailable for her ministerial duties.

"The best outcome now would be a long delay, and it's not the worst thing in the world to ask people to vote for some MEPs, and certainly better than stockpiling medicine and turning Kent into a vehicle park", he told Today.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage re-joined the March to Leave when it set off from Linby, near Nottingham, on Saturday morning. The protest drew people from across Britain who are determined to force Prime Minister Theresa May's government to alter its march toward Brexit.

The Education Minister's comments came as tens of thousands of people descended on central London demanding a second referendum on Brexit in the "Put it to the People" march.

He claimed to be "still confident" that embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May will get her Withdrawal Agreement through the House of Commons.

Politicians from all parties have urged the prime minister to give the public the final say over Brexit at a rally in Parliament Square. You're plunging this country into chaos.

Demonstrators from around Britain marched in London on Saturday to call for a second referendum on the country's departure from the European Union, with organisers putting the number of participants at more than 1mn. European Union leaders gathered again Friday after deciding that the political crisis in Britain over Brexit poses too great a threat and that action is needed to protect the smooth running of the world's biggest trading bloc. Everyone feels betrayed. Government's gridlocked.

Some lawmakers have asked May to name her departure date as the price for supporting her deal, though it was unclear when a third vote might take place.

Watson is expected to promise to back May's deal if she agrees to hold a referendum on it.

Labour MP Chris Bryant told talkRADIO Theresa May was wrong to suggest MPs sought to overturn "the will of the people" in her Downing Street statement last week.

An online petition on the parliamentary website, calling for Article 50 to be revoked had over 4 million signatures by Saturday, despite several crashes on the site.

"We are prepared for this scenario", said one European Union official, referring to the prospect of Britain crashing out without any agreements on trade or transition to avoid the economic shock of a sudden break.

The United Kingdom Parliament had voted against a no-deal Brexit by a narrow margin of 312-308 on March 13.

Mrs May has repeatedly ruled out holding another Brexit referendum, saying it would deepen divisions and undermine support for democracy.
