Grant a People's Vote if Parliament rejects the EU Withdrawal Agreement

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 14 Jan 2019 View Kwasi Kwarteng's petition debate contributions

The Prime Minister has negotiated an EU withdrawal agreement. However, it is clear from resignations and interviews that the deal will not pass Parliament. As no credible alternative has been proposed, the public must be allowed to vote on whether to accept this deal or to remain in the EU.

To have a second referendum on Britain leaving the EU

It's no secret that a vast amount of people who voted to leave the EU didn't realise what they were voting for.

The Leave campaign said that leaving would create new trade deals, strengthen the economy and public services and reduce the number of incoming immigrants. But this is not happening.

The Government is not going to achieve a satisfactory outcome from its negotiations with the EU.

We are wasting Billions of pounds of taxpayers money trying to negotiate in a short space of time. Leaving the EU in March 2019 will allow the UK good time to negotiate more efficiently. The EU will be more eager to accept a deal on our terms having lost a major partner.

Theresa May has failed to negotiate a Brexit deal that is acceptable to Parliament and the British people.
The Withdrawal Agreement does not deliver the Brexit we voted for.
It is clear that the EU is not going to offer anything else, particularly regarding the backstop

It's so desperately simple. The Government's standard response to these kinds of petitions is "The British people voted to leave the EU and the government respect that decision". BUT, the government themselves DO NOT KNOW the outcome of that decision, so how can they possibly respect it???

Brexit is not worth it. A hard border in Ireland will destroy the Good Friday Agreement, meds are being stockpiled and there's news that a contract has been given to a company with no ferries, and the army is on standby in the event of no-deal too. Stop Brexit if MPs vote to reject the PM's deal.

There is a growing band of people that want to reverse the result of the democratic vote of this country to leave the European Union and are calling for a second referendum. This is mainly by the people that lost the vote two years ago and cannot accept the democratic vote of the majority decision.
