Rejected petition Postpone brexit by asking the EU for an extension to deal with the Corona Virus

Parliament and government need to take this opportunity and show some leadership by dealing with the Covid 19 /Corona Virus exclusively, and the consequences. It cannot do that at the same time as implementing brexit.

More details

It is clear that Corona Virus Covid 19 is going to be disruptive and cost lives. It needs full concentration and attention. Implementing brexit is clearly secondary to the health and well being of the country and has already cost billions of pounds that could have been spent on our NHS and on emergency measures to combat this virus.

The government need to ask the EU to extend the transition period in order to deal with this outbreak.
