Call upon the UK government to hold a second referendum on Brexit
As the deadline to Brexit looms and the government has still not even attempted to take a clear position and it seems clear to me that nobody knows what they are doing with it: Every week Theresa May puts out another public statement that "Brexit means Brexit", and that she is only "following the will of the British public", but all the while, her version of Brexit keeps changing. But Brexit doesn't change because of anything the public have asked for. It changes because of what politicians have asked for: Some want a harder Brexit, some want a softer Brexit, some are happy with a no deal, and some would rather we remain in the EU as we are now. With all the instability and uncertainty surrounding Brexit - The stagnating wages, the loss of investment and trade, the status of expats, and the crumbling value of the pound...Isn't it time we demanded a say? With a second referendum, we can guarantee that the government is truly following the democratic will of the people. We know what we want, and if offered a referendum on what we truly wanted from Brexit, I know that the country would come together and do a much better job of it in 24 hours, than our government have done in 24 months. So isn't it time we spoke up and made our voices heard?Why should a few people try to assume what just over half the country wanted two years ago?Why haven't we been invited to say which parts of our current deal are good, and which are a step backwards?Why are our politicians trying to assume what is a bad deal for us, and insisting that no deal is better? Why aren't we being given a second referendum?

We call on Theresa May to resign as Prime Minister
Theresa May is surely duty-bound to resign with immediate effect. She has totally betrayed 17.4 million voters, who voted in an allegedly democratic referendum to “Leave the European Union”. The Prime Minister, a ‘Remainer’, has at no time throughout the so-called negotiations acknowledged the will of the people, instead making us all subservient to the EU and its demands. She has cunningly agreed to all the EU’s demands, whilst deceiving the electorate. She does not represent the UK, the fifth largest economy in the world, but continues to make a mockery of our position. The recent Chequers agreement is puerile, allowing all EU rules to remain in place as a ‘Common Rule Book’. Her ‘Customs Deal’, or shall we say her EU deal, would see UK trade limited to EU rules. The White Paper plans are as bad if not worse than actually remaining in the EU. The UK will still have to obey EU laws and European Court of Justice rulings, which will remove any hope of trading freely with the rest of the world. This is a Brexit in name only, yet still carries the burden of outlandish financial contributions and removes our voting and veto rights. On behalf of the majority who want to “Leave the European Union” and regain our true Independence, we call upon the Prime Minister to resign with immediate effect.

Young people can’t afford any Brexit deal. Give us the choice!
Our generation can’t afford Brexit. A report, commissioned by us and written by Oxford and LSE academics, confirms that Brexit will hurt young people the most. In the worst case scenario, young people would be £108,000 worse off in terms of lost earnings by 2050. That means that Brexit would be costing young people 6 years of full-time work at minimum wage, or four times as much as university tuition fees, or double the average first-time buyer’s deposit on a house. Perhaps more concerning is the revelation that immediately after Brexit, young people will feel the squeeze of a financial loss of up to £830/year. The report, therefore, shows that Brexit hurts us both in the short and long term. Beyond the numbers, our study also shows other ways in which young people could suffer as a result of our leaving the EU. From a loss of opportunities, to travel, work, and study in 27 other countries, to potential erosion of long-cherished rights, Brexit destroys in a single stroke many carefully constructed protections that young people have enjoyed for a generation. It’s not just young adults: child poverty could worsen as the pound devalues and prices go up. Families could be torn apart, child custody could lose clarity, and tackling kidnapping across borders will become much more complex. 700,000 people marched last weekend for the future. They were led by thousands of young people - who want a chance to vote on the biggest issue of their generation. As it stands, they won’t get that chance. We think it’s undemocratic to impose a decision on the most important issue of our generation on people who didn’t, or couldn’t, vote for it. We didn’t vote for this! The vast majority of us voted against it, and some didn’t get a chance in the first place. 18-24-year-olds now favour staying in the EU by a margin of 8 to 1. Among the 2 million who weren’t able to vote in 2016 but are of age now, the figure is even higher. The country is changing its mind too. Nobody voted to make their kids poorer - yet that is exactly what every Brexit deal on the table will do. Polls now show a clear mandate across the UK for remaining in the EU. That’s why we’re campaigning for a People’s Vote. Because we think young people deserve better than Brexit. They deserve to inherit a situation that’s better, not worse, than before. They didn’t vote for this mess and they shouldn’t have to live with it. We demand a People’s Vote!

48.1% of us said no to Brexit so let's call upon our Government to have another referendum. In nearly 7 months we have already seen the devastation that decision has had on our economy, our attitudes to other cultures and on our trade deals so if this petititon gets enough support we can show the government that we want another referendum in which more than that 48.1% of us will show we want to remain in the EU- let's make our voices heard!
Petition to Prime Minister Theresa May and Parliament
BREXIT - The Electorate Demand "NO DEAL" and WTO Rules adopted.
All said and done, we didnt vote to give Government permission to negotiate terms of our Exit from the EU, we voted to either Leave or Remain. The results of the referendum were clear and the result was in favour of "Leave"Almost 3 years have passed and whilst the date of our departure from the Union is fast approaching we are no nearer to regaining Sovereignty and freedom from the grasp that the EU has on the UK. Whatever people may think in terms of any responsibilities we may have to fulfill pledges made before we voted to Leave, or to settle accounts that we have a moral and/or legal responsibility to fulfill, is not the point nor is this necessarily under question. What IS under question and IS VERY MUCH THE POINT, is that ANY deal that keeps the UK bound to the EU IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM, is WHOLLY UNACCEPTABLE.Right now we simply want OUT of the EU, completely and with NO CONDITIONS attached to our Exit. To this end, the ONLY solution is that we Leave under WTO Terms, with NO DEAL between the UK and the EU.Future trade relations and appropriate agreements can be discussed after our UNCONDITIONAL EXIT has been delivered. We have signed this Petition and hereby, (reminding Government, Parliament and ALL MP's that it is We, the people, by whom you are ALL Employed and whose Will you are paid to serve), INSTRUCT Government/PM Theresa May and Parliament to carry out the mandate to Leave the European Union, (that the electorate, as a result of the 2016 referendum has issued), with NO DEAL AND UNDER WORLD TRADE ORGANISATION RULES. This is to be effective upon and as of the legally enshrined exit date of 29 MARCH 2019. In addition to this we include also the stipulation that the United Kingdom reclaim FULL CONTROL of its Military, its Defence, including related Research and Development AND Production Facilities and Industries,Single-Point Command Goals of the European Project are to be Entirely rejected and the UK is to Reclaim Complete Sovereignty and Sole Authority over its Industries, Territories, Resources, Legislation, Judiciary and Governanceand without Predjudice to any other aspects of its Sovereignty as a Nation in its own right and of its own standing.These Stipulations are also to be effective upon and as of 29 March 2019.
Petition to Cumbrian MPs
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.
Petition to Jeremy Corbyn MP, Theresa May MP
Stop Brexit NOW and call a second referendum
I am terribly sad about the Brexit vote and I would have voted stay but I was too young. The only reason we have to leave is that members of the public voted to leave because they thought that we would not leave. Seriously! Now it is time to restore our democracy and stop all this tension. The will of the people has changed, so how can we live with democracy and fairness if we continue with something most people now reject?

Public inquiry into the BBC on Brexit coverage
BBC does not reflect British public opinion on Brexit. They are obviously all in favor of a corrupt European union. Why are the BBC so rude & disrespectful to anyone who speaks on behalf of the 17.4million majority brexiteers?. The BBC are engaged in a fear-mongering campaign against the peoples of the United kingdom who voted out and therefor are not being the unbiased/impartial middle grounded broadcaster that they are supposed to be. This only suggests one thing - PUBLIC INQUIRY as to if the BBC has effected the UK public's increasing anger against MP's and Government as a whole. The BBC need to be held accountable.
