With the clock ticking down to its 29 March exit from the European Union and parliament deadlocked, Britain faces a hugely uncertain path that could lead to a disorderly exit or even remaining in the bloc.

Mrs May is expected to suffer a big defeat when parliament votes on Tuesday.
Insisting that he had not given up hope of victory in next week's vote, he said: "What is important is for MPs on all sides, Brexiters and Remainers, whatever our disagreements, to say "We are democrats and the most important thing now is to make sure that we really do deliver Brexit".
"There was then a vote on the triggering of Article 50 and unbelievably, almost 500 MPs voted to trigger Article 50. And both major parties did so too when they stood on election manifestos in 2017 that pledged to honour the result of the referendum".
