Petition Leave the EU now
The Government is not going to achieve a satisfactory outcome from its negotiations with the EU.
We should walk away now.
No Deal is better than a bad deal.

EU leaders have now endorsed the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration on the future relationship between the UK and EU. This Agreement secures the rights of more than three million EU citizens living in the UK and around one million UK nationals living in the EU; sets out the terms of a time-limited implementation period; and ensures a fair financial settlement.
On Northern Ireland, the agreed Protocol guarantees that even in the unlikely event that the UK’s future relationship with the EU is not in place by the end of the
implementation period, there will be no hard border between Northern Ireland and
Ireland and no customs border down the Irish Sea.
The agreement preserves the economic and constitutional integrity of the United
Kingdom, upholds the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement, and ensures people and
businesses that rely on an open border between the Northern Ireland and Ireland
can continue living their lives and operating as they do now.
The full Political Declaration sets out a clear vision for the UK’s future relationship
with the EU.
This includes the creation of a free trade area for goods, combining deep regulatory and customs co-operation with zero tariffs, no fees, charges or quantitative restrictions across all goods sectors; the first such agreement between an advanced economy and the EU.
The deal takes back control of our borders, our laws and our money while protecting jobs, security and the integrity of our United Kingdom.
The Government does not want or expect a no deal scenario. While the chances of no deal have been reduced considerably, the Government will continue to do the responsible thing and prepare for all eventualities, in case a final agreement cannot be reached.
