A petition calling on the UK government to reject the United Nations’ controversial global Migration Compact has exceeded the 100,000 signatures necessary for it to be debated in Parliament.
The petition, which has been promoted by Leave.EU among others, has gathered considerable pace in the last fortnight but is yet to receive a response from the government after surpassing 10,000 signatories 11 days ago.

Britain should join those above who have rejected the UN's Global Migration Compact.

The United States and Australia, in addition to a multitude of European nations have confirmed they will not be agreeing to the compact which aims to confirm migration as a human right, conflating legal and illegal migration.
Aussie Prime Minister Scott Morrison set out his country’s opposition to the Migration Pact, saying: “The Compact fails to adequately distinguish between people who enter Australia illegally and those who come to Australia the right way, particularly with respect to the provision of welfare and other benefits.”
Therefore in his view: “The Compact would risk encouraging illegal entry to Australia and reverse Australia’s hard-won successes in combating the people smuggling trade.”
The pact is expected to be signed off at the UN’s Intergovernmental Conference in Marrakech, Morocco commencing on 10th December 2018.

The British electorate is used to political leaders signing off on agreements without their consent – Lisbon and Maastricht come to mind. With Parliament totally consumed with Brexit over the coming week, it is likely this will be yet another time when opposition to the globalist, open borders agenda falls on deaf ears. If the British government were serious about strong borders, they wouldn’t sign up to this.
