More than two million people have signed a petition demanding Article 50 is withdrawn as Theresa May was driven to urge EU leaders for a stay to Brexit, as penetration of the people surged to sign it following a night of political turmoil as the Prime Minister turned on MPs in a moving address to the country.
The 100,000-signature threshold for the petition to be discussed in Parliament was immediately surpassed and the phrase “revoke Article 50” became a worldwide trend on Twitter, as the petition collected 300,000 signatures, and it proceeded to grow and reach the one million mark, and then to two million.
The website for the petition temporarily appeared to crash, displaying an error message but was later reinstated.
The petition read: “The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is ‘the will of the people’.
“We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People’s Vote may not happen – so vote now.”
The constituencies with the greatest number of signatures, above the threshold of 5,101, comprised Islington North, represented by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Edinburgh North and Leith, Bristol West, Cambridge, Hornsey and Wood Green and Brighton Pavilion.
Brexit did not go ahead on March 29, which Theresa May stated was a great personal regret for her, after she asked the EU for a delay, and she blamed MPs for failing to agree, and she criticised MPs for failing to agree on a means to realise the outcome of the 2016 election and stated she thought electors simply want this stage of the Brexit process to be over.
Theresa May urged the EU to allow the UK’s departure date to be delayed to June 30 and threatened to quit as Prime Minister if MPs demand a continued delay. The European Council President Donald Tusk then said the EU would give a short extension but only if MPs back the Prime Minister’s deal in the Commons during a third meaningful referendum.
And in the Commons, Theresa May set out proposals to block Speaker John Bercow preventing a third vote on her deal, which was rebuffed by MPs by 230 votes in January and 149 votes, but Westminster was in uproar with MPs, who were given an emergency debate in the Commons by Mr Bercow, frantic to hear Theresa May’s proposals as to how she would attempt to get the deal through following two unbelievable defeats.
Theresa May travelled to Brussels for the summit of the European Council, where she made her case for a three-month extension to the two-year Article 50 negotiation process, putting Brexit back from March 29 to June 30.
Theresa May is and has been acting like a tyrant, and the people’s opinion isn’t being listened to because Theresa May carelessly sweeps all forms of discord aside at the wave of a hand, and most of the people of the United Kingdom obviously want to remain, and the primary vote vaulted the country into exiting with false lights, smoke and mirrors.
The voice of the people should be listened to, and politicians and the Prime Minister are following their own personal agenda, and are being jostled into their actions by big business and not the people of the United Kingdom, and democracy is being exploited for Theresa May’s own ends and obsession with grand supremacy, in the face of public objection.
The United Kingdom doesn’t have a particularly sunny future, there will be custom tax increase prices of multiple products, immigrants from the EU will begin departing the United Kingdom, well, they already have. Benefits will become low, prices will go up but salaries will presumably not, and without cheap workers from the EU, the British people will have to go to work, but as many of them are on benefits, their skills are really poor.
The government will welcome new immigrants to the United Kingdom, but not from the EU, although we now have a different culture, with new religions et cetera, and ultimately, this country will be like a new England where there will be no United Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland, or any freedoms.
But we shouldn’t fret about it because Brexit is the primary issue here now with all our cheap workers and great profits, and our government are greedy and because of this, it will become the end of our culture here in the United Kingdom.
