Closed petition No to a "People's Vote" !
Despite the Referendum result being one of the biggest democratic votes in our history, there are still people who refuse to accept the result.
The choice on the ballot paper was clear:
Remain or Leave.
The British people knew what they were voting for.
We do not need a further referendum as it would undermine the democratic will of the people.

This Government is determined to get Brexit done, and we will not support any legislation that seeks to overturn the result of the 2016 referendum.
This Government is determined to get Brexit done, with no more delays so the country can move forward and focus on the cost of living, the NHS and other domestic priorities.
We have secured a great new deal with the EU that will allow us to leave in an orderly and friendly way. This new deal ensures that we take back control of our laws, trade, borders and money without disruption, and provides the basis of a new relationship with the EU based on free trade and friendly cooperation. We introduced the necessary legislation, which passed its Second Reading.
Unfortunately Parliament then again voted for delay, rather than a timetable that would have guaranteed that the UK would be in a position to leave the EU on October 31 with a deal.
Throughout this process the Government has been clear; we will not support any legislation that seeks to overturn the result of the 2016 referendum. 17.4 million voters deciding to leave the EU is the largest mandate that has ever been given for any UK Government to deliver.
Now we must deliver on that pledge.
