Bolton: British People Determined To Get Brexit
The news that the ‘Leave Now’ petition has soared past 120,000 supporters, despite significant problems with people signing it, has been hailed by UKIP Leader Henry Bolton as “great news”.
Mr Bolton said it showed a loss of patience with the drawn-out process “outside the elite bubble in Westminster”.
“This is great news, and it shows that despite the efforts of the switch back Labour party and a handful of malcontent Tory back-benchers that ordinary people of this country are still determined to get the Brexit they voted for.”
However, there is a significant question mark over whether the petition will be selected to be debated in Parliament. Passing the 100k signature mark only obliges the government to consider the petition for a debate in Parliament, it does not mean that such a debate will automatically happen.
So, we need to keep the pressure on by gathering as many signatures as possible. You can sign the petition here.
