This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Rejected petition Do not invoke article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

The referendum has yielded a fractured and divided country, it has harmed our economy, taken away opportunities for future generations, and damaged our international standing. We should use the referendum results to support a meaningful discussion about EU reform within the EU as a full member.

More details

The UK's credit rating has fallen, pensions are now worth less, the Pound is at the lowest point in 30 years, fuel and other goods will cost more. The country is witnessing an increase in racist attacks. It is becoming increasingly clear that the Leave campaign won by deceit and is now rolling back its referendum promises. They have offered no clear plan of action. It is time to recognise the non-binding nature of the referendum and use its result to fight for positive change within the EU.
