Petition STOP BREXIT
It's so desperately simple. The Government's standard response to these kinds of petitions is "The British people voted to leave the EU and the government respect that decision". BUT, the government themselves DO NOT KNOW the outcome of that decision, so how can they possibly respect it???
Quote Theresa May: "We don't know what the outcome will be". The referendum was advisory, not conclusive. The result of the referendum has now been proven to be illegally biased (something "our" government is choosing to ignore). Hence, the "vote" (actually an opinion poll) is now null and void. The referendum was voted for with no indication of any actual facts. 2yrs ago there was no detail about what "brexit" actually entailed. Today, still no detail. For all these reasons: STOP BREXIT.
This response was given on 22 November 2018
The people of the United Kingdom gave a clear instruction to leave the
European Union. The Government respects that decision.
The British public voted to leave the European Union and the
Government will deliver this instruction. As a matter of firm policy our
notification under Article 50 will not be withdrawn.
The referendum was one of the biggest democratic exercises in British
history. Almost three quarters of the electorate took part in the
referendum, resulting in 17.4 million votes to leave the European
Union. This is the highest number of votes cast for anything in UK
electoral history. This was the biggest democratic mandate for a
course of action ever directed at any UK Government.
Parliament also overwhelmingly confirmed the result of the referendum
by voting with clear and convincing majorities in both of its Houses for
the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill. At the last general
election over 80% of British people voted for parties committed to
respecting the Leave result.
The Government will honour the referendum result and get the best
deal possible. To do otherwise would be to undermine the decision of
the British people.
The full legal text of the Withdrawal Agreement has now been agreed in
principle. This agreement marks a decisive step forward towards a
smooth and orderly exit from the EU. We have also agreed the draft text
of our future relationship as set out in the Political Declaration.
This puts us close to a Brexit deal. A deal that takes back control of our
borders, our laws and our money while protecting jobs, security and the
integrity of our United Kingdom.
