Stop Brexit:it has stopped growth, will make UK & EU worse off & Article 50 can be revoked

This petition had 449 supporters

Brexit was sold to the people of the UK on a lie. The costs were ignored or drastically understated. The benefits overstated. The risks ignored. One year on we now face slower economic grow, real wages falling, key industries leaving and the real prospect of recession. All due to BREXIT.

The EU has provided the UK with its biggest market and fuelled decades of growth, provided a more significant position on the world stage than we would have had alone, enabled us to keep our currency the pound, and to stay outside of the Schengen area. We have been able to choose what we want to be part of. 

Now we face a massive reduction in financial services, one of our key industries, as well as the prospect of in the future our manufacturers having to comply to UK and EU regulation to sell into our main markets. It makes no sense on any level.

What can we do? Lord Kerr, who drafted Article 50 says "Article 50 notification is NOT irrevocable" and "a member state may, in accordance with its constitutional requirements, withdraw its notification within the two year period" and "Article 50 is not an expulsion procedure...... and if, having looked into abyss, we changed our minds about withdrawal, we certainly could - and no-one in Brussels could stop us.”

Quite simply the only thing stopping us from ruining our economy, from ruining our international reputation and influence, and stopping us from turning our back on the EU which has benefited us all immensely, is ourselves. We can stop brexit, we just need the will to do so.

Please sign this petition to the Prime Minister, Theresa May, the chancellor of the exchequer, Philip Hammond, and the Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn to STOPBREXIT and for the UK to reverse/revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU.
