Power to the People: Parliament To Debate Brexit Petition To Leave EU IMMEDIATELY!
A petition to ‘Leave the EU Immediately’ has reached over 130,000 signatures – significantly above the 100,000 needed to trigger a parliamentary debate!
The petition is a sign that the people of Britain are beginning to get fed up with the government’s inaction on the biggest vote in our nation’s history.
The petition’s description reads: “The Government should walk away from the Article 50 negotiations and leave the EU immediately with no deal. The EU looks set to offer us a punishment deal out of spite. Why wait another 18 months when we could leave right away and fully take back control of our country, lawmaking powers and borders?”
Congratulations to all who signed the petition to Leave the EU immediately.
Parliament will debate it on the 22nd of January https://t.co/hztpuMpAAf

The petition goes on to say: “The EU looks set to offer us a punishment deal out of spite, insisting we pay tens of billions of pounds as part of a ‘settlement fee’ and continue to accept the jurisdiction of EU courts even after we’ve left. Meanwhile pro-EU MPs in Labour, the Lib Dems and the SNP, along with unelected Lords, are attempting to block Brexit, the longer we remain a member the more opportunity they have to interfere. Why wait almost another 2 years when we could just leave right away?”
The government responded to the petition saying: “The country voted to leave the EU, and this Government respects that. A smooth and orderly exit is in the interest of both the UK and the EU.”
Parliament will debate the petition on the 22nd January – be sure to keep an eye on Kipper Central for the latest Brexit news!
