Parliament debated this petition on 22 January 2018.
This matter will not go away. The People expect their instructions to Parliament on leaving the EU unconditionally to be carried out unconditionally. Few can have any confidence in the PM and her remain-dominated Cabinet. For why pay £39 billion to the EU for a loss- making trade deal when surely they should be paying us? Why indeed!
– William Jaffray
What is the Petition About?
The Government must 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 take back control of our country, lawmaking powers and borders?
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 leave right away?
