Debate: The EU referendum is now invalid due to demographic changes over time.
Expiry: 30 April 2018

If no agreement to leave the European Union is reached, Article 50 be withdrawn
As it is certain that such a scenario will damage the country’s economy and the well-being of its people, this country should not leave without agreements that will prevent damage to both.
Closing Date: 18 April 2018

SIGN NOW

The UK should terminate the EU talks forthwith by withdrawing the Art 50 notice
It is already clear that, within the current framework, the EU is bound to win. Article 50 has never been triggered before, and it is manifestly defective in its conceptual structure: the UK should withdraw immediately, and make progress as a Member of the EU, from within.
Closing Date: 18 April 2018

SIGN NOW

Adopt the EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive whether we leave or remain in the EU
One fear is that Brexit is simply so the very rich and corporations can avoid the EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive. They would be able to store their money in the UK and aggressively avoid paying tax. If the UK adopted the EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive it would ensure everyone paid tax fairly and give one less reason to object to Brexit
Closing Date: 13 April 2018

SIGN NOW

Leaving the Single Market should be subject to a parliamentary vote
Article 127 of the 1994 EEA Agreement states Each Contracting Party may withdraw from its Agreement provided it gives at least twelve months’ notice in writing to the other Contracting Parties.
Closing Date: 13 April 2018

SIGN NOW

Expedite legislation guaranteeing the right to vote for UK citizens for life.
Expiry: 29 March 2018
 Lower the voting age to 16
The voting age should be lowered to 16 because I think that people are responsible enough to know what they are voting for and they are deciding their future. 16 year olds are eligible to enlist in the army but are not allowed to vote for who makes the decisions that change their future.
Closing Date: 26 March 2018

SIGN NOW

House of Commons vote on whether Brexit should be cancelled
Brexit was initiated on the basis that it was the ‘will of the people’ and the Government needed to act on that. The ‘will’ to Leave was actually expressed by c.37% of the eligible UK electorate. Parliament is sovereign and MPs must freely express their view of what is best for the UK.
Closing Date: 22 March 2018

Investigate covert foreign interference in the EU referendum

It is becoming clear that the US 2016 election was the target of Russian efforts to influence the result, for instance via large numbers of fake social media accounts.
There is some evidence that the EU referendum was similarly targeted; a full investigation is needed.
Closing Date: 19 March 2018

Make it illegal for any UK politician to lie or mislead the public.

Expiry: 19 March 2018
Don’t leave the EU
It would be a colossal mistake for the UK to leave the EU. The Government is floundering in the Brexit negotiations and the country would be poorer in every sense outside of the EU. And It would affect young people’s lives greatly and this could become Regrexit.
Closing Date: 19 March 2018

SIGN NOW

The Government must publish its own Brexit Impact/Risk Assessments
In the many months since the Brexit referendum in June 2016, government departments have prepared impact assessments which detail the consequences of Brexit for the UK’s economy in 50+ sectors.

Require HMRC to separate out the cost of Brexit on personal tax statements
The UK Government is taking us out of the EU whatever the cost. During the referendum campaign, much was made of the cost of membership of the EU. There will be costs to leave the EU – public sector time, research and consultancy fees, legal costs, repayments, and so on. These should be identified.

Give all British citizens living abroad the right to vote and dedicated MPs
About 1 million British citizens living abroad do not have the right to vote due to their overseas residency exceeding 15 years. They therefore lack representation in Parliament. And, British Citizens living abroad for under 15 years may only vote in a constituency they no longer live in.
Closing Date: 13 March 2018

Secure the free movement of UK citizens currently resident in EU member states

The current deal between the EU and UK regarding Brexit states UK citizens will be able to carry on enjoying the same rights as of now in the country we live in. It doesn’t not state we will continue to enjoy free movement within the union.
Many british Expats in the EU depend on this for work.

Declare the 2016 referendum vote null and void due to foreign interference

It is clear now that foreign influence and inaccurate facts were highly influential on the electorate during the Brexit referendum and therefore the result should be declared as null and void.

Keep us in the Euraton

Euratom regulates our nuclear power stations, radioisotopes and therapies vital for cancer care, and the movement of nuclear waste around the whole of Europe.  It is critically important the UK remains in Euratom for our NHS, as our membership has meant that cancer patients in the UK have been able to receive vital radiotherapy treatments without supply-related disruptions and uncertainties. With the Nuclear Safeguards Bill going through Parliament at the moment, it is crucial we make this case.

Ask the Government to Release the Brexit Impact Studies

We believe that the Government should acknowledge that, given the significance of the decision to leave the European Union, the public have a democratic right to be informed as to the anticipated impact of the decision on our economy and country’s future.
UPDATE 03/09/17: Molly Scott Cato MEP has made a Freedom of Information request seeking details on studies conducted into the impact of Brexit on the NHS. With over 10,000 people signing this campaign in less than four days, it’s essential that we keep up the pressure on the Government and continue to gather support.

Cancel Brexit – (NO LONGER TAKING SIGNATURES DUE TO VICTORY OF LIMIT REACHED – OVER 15,000!)
The UK is being ‘governed’ towards leaving the European Union after a referendum in 2016 which did not provide good quality and honest information to voters. Those in Government and their opposition in the UK Parliament are letting divisions within their own parties, and party-politics in general, get in the way of MPs honestly stating their informed views on Brexit.

I want an exit from Brexit

Do not throw away our human rights

Article 50 – Not in my name
48 And Beyond
Theresa May has called for the ‘people of the UK’ to unite and support Brexit, stating that “Britain will get a good deal”. We disagree, there is no deal you can negotiate that can replace what we currently have, because we already have the best deal.
