This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Petition Referendums must garner over 50% in all four nations of the UK to be passed

Referendums risk the break-up of the United Kingdom, if the four nations vote in different ways, as devolved parliaments can cite "material changes" that allow a referendum of independence in their respective nations to be carried out.

More details

The United Kngdom is a valued but vulnerable Union. The U.K. Parliament must respect the views of the constituent nations when consulting the public over constitutional matters. Therefore, referendums must require the support of each constituent nation (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).

The undersigned wish this to be enforced retrospectively, including the recent EU referendum.
