We are asking all our members, supporters and friends to sign this petition on the Government website to drop the Article 50 process. The petition has already hit the magic 100,000 signatures, forcing the Government to consider it for a debate in Parliament but the more people who sign, the more the political class will understand our strength of feeling.
UKIP leader Henry Bolton has put our party’s weight behind the petition and has said:
“This is great news, and it shows that despite the efforts of the switch back Labour party and a handful of malcontent Tory back-benchers that ordinary people of this country are still determined to get the Brexit they voted for.
“The petition, reads: “The Government should walk away from the Article 50 negotiations and leave the EU immediately with no deal. The EU looks set to offer us a punishment deal out of spite. Why wait another 18 months when we could leave right away and fully take back control of our country, lawmaking powers and borders?”
