Petition To have a second referendum on Britain leaving the EU

It's no secret that a vast amount of people who voted to leave the EU didn't realise what they were voting for.

The Leave campaign said that leaving would create new trade deals, strengthen the economy and public services and reduce the number of incoming immigrants. But this is not happening.

Theresa May has really struggled so far in Brexit negotiations and time is running out. She's failing to secure trade deals and my personal biggest fear is the Irish Border, this could lead to a United Ireland.

May has lost support not only from the Cabinet but the whole nation. I'm calling for a second referendum, because if you voted to remain or to leave we need a final say. The Brexit decision was so tight and I just think that it help everyone if there was a second vote. Sign if you agree.

Parliament debated this topic

This topic was debated on 14 January 2019

MPs to debate petitions relating to leaving the European Union on Monday 14 January.

The Petitions Committee (the group of MPs who oversee the petitions system) met today and agreed to schedule a debate on Monday 14 January 2019 on the following group of petitions expressing different views on leaving the European Union:

To have a second referendum on Britain leaving the EU
Leave the EU without a deal in March 2019.
Leave the EU now
Walk away now! We voted for a No Deal Brexit
Grant a People's Vote if Parliament rejects the EU Withdrawal Agreement
Stop Brexit if parliament rejects the deal

The Committee has decided to have a single debate on these petitions because it wanted to ensure they were debated as soon as possible, so they would be less likely to be overtaken by events. The Committee has included some smaller petitions because they are very similar to those with 100,000 signatures.

The debate will start at 4.30pm. You can watch it at A transcript will be published the following day at
