In yet another signal that the people just want to get on with enforcing the democratic referendum result, over 117,000 have signed the petition so far, demanding that the UK hurry up and leave the Brussels bloc.
The petition 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?
“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?”
Let’s hope this petition serves as the kick up the backside this government needs to get the UK out of the EU. The public are growing restless. Leave now, save the money, start trading with the rest of the world.
