Gerry Gee started this petition to UK Parliament and

In 2009 the Labour Government removed the statute of 'Sediton' as a crime.

A seditious intention is an intention to bring into hatred or contempt, the government and constitution of the United Kingdom, as by law established, or either House of Parliament, or the administration of justice, or to excite Her Majesty's subjects to attempt otherwise than by lawful means.

We see sedition being used by individuals, politicians, barristers - QC, and political parties try to stop Brexit which was voted for in a referendum in 2016.

Nearly all politicians voted for Article 50 to be implemented, but now we see half of Parliament and the House of Lords plotting against HM Government preventing it from making a deal with the European Union.

This plotting also includes assistance from the European Union itself, advising MP's and political parties on how to stop or bring down the Government, then rushing through acts and legislation without having proper debate on this very important issue.

This issue is about democracy and the sovereighnty of the people of the UK. Certain individuals are abusing their power, they must not be allowed to do this.

Sedition must be reintroduced.
