Should the British Government revoke Article 50 - Answer Yes or No ?
You keep using that word. I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means.

Revoking Article 50 ( of the Lisbon Treaty) would need an unambiguous vote of all EU members. It also would mean the there would be no longer an Article 50 in the treaty. It is open for discussion what with membership withdrawn notices which were handed in before Article 50 was revoked should happen. It would also mean that a withdrawn from the EU would no longer be possible for any member state.

What you properly mean is to retract UK's withdrawn notice according article 50 of the Lisbon treaty. Just a small problem, the Lisbon Treaty does not foresee that a membership withdrawn notices could be retracted once handed to the European Council.
