Significant Glenrothes Petitions

Petition Closed

If there is no agreement to leave the EU then brexit must be stopped

Gov Responded - 1 Oct 2018 Debated on - 19 Nov 2018 View Peter Grant's petition debate contributions
18 Nov 2018
closed 2 years, 3 months ago

If there is no agreement by the deadline for reaching agreement with the EU during the talks then brexit should be stopped as leaving with no deal will be very bad for businesses and for the Irish border issue and for EU citizens living here.

Petition Closed

Parliament's vote on the Brexit deal must include an option to remain in the EU.

A lesser of two evils choice between a bad deal and no deal is not acceptable. Our country deserves better than Hobson's choice, and our MPs should be allowed to vote with their conscience to deliver what they believe is best for the country.

Leave the EU immediately

Gov Responded - 17 Oct 2017 Debated on - 22 Jan 2018 View Peter Grant's petition debate contributions

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?

We, the undersigned, call upon HM Government to give the people of this country the final say on the Brexit deal negotiated by the UK and EU. This would be done through a referendum that would take place prior to the April 2019 exit date.

14,438
Petition Closed

No referendum on the final deal for the UK to remain in the European Union.

We, the undersigned, herby call upon HM government to dismiss calls for a referendum on the final deal as the British people were asked an important question on the 23rd June last year, the choices were abundantly clear, remain or leave the European Union and leave won a decisive vote.
