To urge Cumbrian MPs to listen to the will of the people

In 2016 the people of Cumbria voted 56% in favour to leave the EU. However, Cumbrian MPs are defying that vote in certain ways.
Sue Hayman, MP for Allerdale, said she wants to see a permenant Customs Union. This is not what leave looks like.
Trudy Harrison, MP for Copeland, Rory Stewart MP for Eden, and John Stevenson MP for Carlisle, supported the Prime Ministers Withdrawal Agreement in parliament which splits up the union by keeping Northern Ireland in a customs union and the single market. It also keeps us under the ruling of the ECJ. There are many more problems with the deal which you can read here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/francescoppola/2018/11/24/why-theresa-mays-brexit-deal-is-terrible-for-the-u-k/
Tim Farron, MP for South Lakeland, wants to ignore the result of the first referendum because remain lost and to hold another one. This is also in his party's policy.
John Woodcock, MP for Barrow-in-Furness, says that a No Deal would be disastrous for the country, and previously supported Labour's position on a Customs Union when he was an MP for the Party. https://www.nwemail.co.uk/opinion/john-woodcock/16436437.opinion-tories-need-to-get-real-over-brexit/
Please sign this petition to tell your MP that you do not want them to waver over brexit and for them to make your voice heard in Parliament, as all constituencies in Cumbria voted to leave Bar one, Cumbria as a whole voted for Brexit, 56%, and the Country voted to leave by 52%. Sign this petition to tell the Cumbrian MPs that you do not want to be subject to a Customs Union, single Market, do not want to break up the Union, do not want to be held hostage by the EU or still be under ECJ ruling like the withdrawal agreement does, do not want to sign away our fishing waters, do not want to give the EU excessive amounts of money which could be going towards our public services, and do not want to be under EU rules and regulation.
Sign this petition to tell the Cumbrian MPs to respect the result of the referendum in 2016. Not partially, not half, all of the result to vote leave.
