This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition Ask the PM to explain the deception on the true legal status of the EU vote.
The Referendum was an advisory Consultation, not a binding vote. Noone neither Government nor MP's nor Civil Service, raised this fundamental point publicly before the vote. And have not confirmed it since. Why not? Was or is there a Conspiracy of Silence ordered by No. 10?
1.The EU Referendum Act 2015.
2. House of Commons Briefing Paper CBP-7212, June 2015, Section 5:
“Types of referendum:
This Bill ...does not contain any requirement for the UK Government to implement the results of the referendum, nor set a time limit by which a vote to leave the EU should be implemented. Instead, this is a type of referendum known as pre-legislative or consultative, which enables the electorate to voice an opinion which then influences the Government in its policy decisions."
