Kim Jong May & her Tory Party Respond to a 'Democratic' Request.

We're living in a dictatorship, folks. 

Dear XX
The Government has responded to the petition you signed – “Hold a referendum on the final Brexit deal”.
Government responded:
On 23 June 2016 the British people voted to leave the European Union. The UK Government is clear that it is now its duty to implement the will of the people and so there will be no second referendum.
The decision to hold the referendum was supported by a clear majority in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords. On 23 June 2016 the British people voted to leave the European Union. The referendum was the largest democratic mandate in UK political history. In the 2017 General Election more than 85% of people voted for parties committed to respecting that result.
There must be no attempts to remain inside the European Union, no attempts to rejoin it through the back door, and no second referendum. The country voted to leave the European Union, and it is the duty of the Government to make sure we do just that. Rather than second guess the British people’s decision to leave the European Union, the challenge now is to make a success of it - not just for those who voted leave but for every citizen of the United Kingdom, bringing together everyone in a balanced approach which respects the decision to leave the political structure of the EU but builds a strong relationship between Britain and the EU as neighbours, allies and partners.
Parliament passed an Act of Parliament with a clear majority giving the Prime Minister the power to trigger Article 50, which she did on 29 March in a letter to the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk. As a matter of firm policy, our notification will not be withdrawn - for the simple reason that people voted to leave, and the Government is determined to see through that instruction.
Both Houses of Parliament will have the opportunity to vote on the final agreement reached with the EU before it is concluded. This will be a meaningful vote which will give MPs the choice to either accept the final agreement or leave the EU with no agreement.
The people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, but we are not leaving Europe. We want a deep and special partnership with the EU. We aim to get the right deal abroad and the right deal for people here at home. We will deliver a country that is stronger, fairer, more united and more outward-looking than ever before.

  1. I am ignorant on many counts but believe lots of lies were told to the British public before the election. This led to many people (sadly not well-read and misled into the bargain) to vote without full knowledge of all the facts. Talking about 'old values' is rubbish; the UK no longer has an empire and the lack of really intelligent politicians with COMMON SENSE is lamentable. So many are like headless chickens as to future plans and I deplore the treatment of so-called 'foreigners.' Society and peace has been built on the backs and lives of countless 'foreigners' who bleed just like any 'white'/'British' person. We are all human after all, so let's act with humanity.

  2. Less than 52% of the electorate voted to leave on the basis of lies told by the Leave campaign and dreadful complacency by the Remainers. How can this be justified as 'the will of the people?'. I accept it's enough to talk about our relationship with Europe, but surely we need another referendum on the final deal, when we are actually told the whole truth as to all the implications of leaving.

    1. 85% voted in 2017 for parties who endorse Brexit ....Double-speak?

  3. "...bringing together everyone in a balanced approach..."
    It's a bit late for that!
    ...second guess the British people’s decision..."
    So, in the 1st place, this was a guess?

  4. I no longer understand any of this and am making moves to become a Dutch citizen. I will always be 'English' but I don't wish to be party to anything the British government is doing. Despite promises that they would allow long term absent British citizens the vote, I have not been allowed to, so there are no longer any reasons why I should remain a UK citizen. If all those of us who live in Europe had been given the vote, Brexit would not be happening.
