Social Enterprise UK started this petition to Boris Johnson (Prime Minister) and

Brexit is important, but our country faces challenges beyond Brexit. 

70% of people say that the status quo isn't working and we need radical change, according to research by the think tank Onward, but there is a real danger that this radical change will not be discussed at this election. 

The media and politicians are myopically focused on Brexit. Whatever your view, Brexit on its own will not tackle the "triple threat" facing our society: the climate crisis, social division and long-term economic stagnation. 

Brexit needs to be part of this election but it isn't everything. We need to cut our carbon emissions drastically; we need to heal our divided society, tackling gender and racial discrimination as well as regional inequality. Even before Brexit, living standards were not recovering fast enough from the financial crash.

Simply put, Britain is not in good shape regardless of what you think about Brexit.

It's a small thing, but we want all the Party Leaders to commit to having one televised debate where there are no questions about and no mentions of the "b-word". A free space where politicians and voters can talk about the long term future of the UK. 

If we can do that, then perhaps we can begin to take action to resolve the huge challenges our country faces. 

Words may be cheap, but if the big issues are not even discussed, there will be no way for politicians to be held to account. 

If you think that this election must be about #MoreThanJustBrexit - sign this petition!
