Brexit Petitions – Vote Early, Vote Often

A couple of petitions to the government here. Use – given the trouble the place is giving everyone at present – the usual Northern Irish advice about voting upon them.

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] Brexit re article 50 it must not be suspended/stopped under any circumstances
the full details are well known to everyone the media has covered it fully More details
the british people MUST be given the Brexit they voted for anything else is not acceptable to the british public ARTICLE 50 must not under any circumstances be hindered/suspended/stopped for any reason whatsoever the time is here to take action as there has been excessive feet dragging/delaying tactics by those opposed to brexit [/perfectpullquote]

And

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] Leave the EU without a deal in March 2019.
We are wasting Billions of pounds of taxpayers money trying to negotiate in a short space of time. Leaving the EU in March 2019 will allow the UK good time to negotiate more efficiently. The EU will be more eager to accept a deal on our terms having lost a major partner. More details
We will save billions of pounds from our EU divorce payment as well as a similar amount from Civil Service and Govt costs. This money will be used to support our own country whilst we await the EU to talk to us to make deals more in our favour. The EU border in Ireland to be managed simply by having a dual Euro / pound currency as legal tender in both the North and South. Exports to the South would be dealt with in Euro and vice versa when importing to the North. Rates fixed at time of the deal. [/perfectpullquote]

We’re deeply unsure about the details of either petition but the general principle – Let’s Leave, sort out the details later – works for us. As, actually, so does Let’s Leave and not sort out the details later work for us.

Also interesting, a map of where people have signed from.

You’ve made only the first two wordsof each petiton description into a link, which I

think is confusing people who expect to be able to click on any part of the petition text.

One of the petitons is being promoted at The Conservative Woman
https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/petition-asks-for-liberation-from-brussels/
which also links to a good article on the subject by Ruth Lea.

The first (no suspension of Article 50) is on <5,000 signatures, the second (clean Brexit now) has over 200,000 (and obviously has Verhofstadt shitting himself, judging by this Tweet …)

Links still screwed up
#1 https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/224908
5,031 signatures

#2 https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/229963
238K sigs

#3 Grant a People’s Vote if Parliament rejects the EU Withdrawal Agreement
https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/232984
120K

#4 The original Soros’s Vote petition
It was about 350K..they claimed a million but that was by joining 3 petitions together
You’d think if there were really 700K people on their march then they would have got 700K on one petition easily BUT THEY DIDN’T

#5 Ah the Indy claim a million on their Give people a vote (ie Remainers petition)
