Solicitor General Robert Buckland said the Government was facing a "major constitutional crisis" and that Mr Bercow's intervention would have "huge reverberations" for the Brexit process. "We don't have a lot of time for it but still have a few days".

The BBC's political editor, Laura Kuenssberg, said the prime minister's letter will also include a provision for a delay of up to two years.

To get a fresh vote, he said, Mrs.

British Prime Minister Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street for the Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons, 13-03-2019.

But May's spokesman insisted her priority was to continue to try to win over MPs to her deal: "The prime minister has set out that she believes that the deal she has secured from the European Union is a good one, and that it is the best deal available, and she continues to work on finding a way for parliament to pass that deal, so that we can get on with leaving the European Union as quickly as possible".

"One must have a sense of humour when dealing with Brexit at the moment".

With less than a fortnight until Britain is scheduled to depart the European bloc on March 29, the Brexit process remains mired in chaos and uncertainty.

France's minister for European affairs, Nathalie Loiseau, has named her cat "Brexit" because when she opens the door he "stays put".

This morning, the Tánaiste Simon Coveney travelled to Brussels to meet with EU Brexit Coordinator Guy Verhofstadt and Chief EU Negotiator Michel Barnier.

Mrs Merkel said that current events were in a "state of flux", adding that European Union leaders will try to react to whatever the United Kingdom proposes.

The politician's comment comes days after British lawmakers in Parliament voted in favor of a delay in the country's departure from the European Union, just weeks before the United Kingdom was due to leave.

Well at that point the DUP would have maximum leverage to secure not just the notorious Stormont Lock - or pledge from the government any new regulations forced on Northern Ireland while the backstop prevails would also be imposed on Great Britain (see what I wrote yesterday) - but also presumably untold squillions for pet projects in the province. "The longer it is delayed, the more hard it will certainly be".

Mr Barclay said that, while the Cabinet would give "serious consideration" to his ruling, Mrs May's plan remained "the only deal on the table". But with a deadline of March 29 approaching - at which the United Kingdom crashes out of the European Union unless an agreement is reached - May's government hoped to bring the deal back a third time.

"It is for the British government and Parliament to decide very quickly what the United Kingdom wants to do next".

"We have to know what the British want: How long, what is the reason supposed to be, how it should go, what is actually the aim of the extension?"

Ms Danielle Haralambous, an analyst at the Economist Intelligence Unit, told Reuters: "Mr Bercow's statement was unprecedented and has more significantly limited the government's room for manoeuvre, making it hard to see how Mrs May can still hope to get her deal approved".

Roth said it was time "to put an end to the games".
