UK Votes to Leave EU in Referendum, Brexit Deal With EU Defeated

Recommended Posts

Seems like some Brits are having second thoughts about Brexit:

A petition calling for Prime Minister Theresa May to revoke Article 50 and remain in Europe gained fresh momentum Thursday as thousands of exasperated, angry and seemingly embarrassed Brits took to the website in an attempt to stop Brexit from happening.

As of Thursday morning, the petition had racked up more than 800,000 signatures and had caused parliament’s website to crash because of the sheer volume of people attempting to add their names.

“The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is ‘the will of the people’. We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People’s Vote may not happen - so vote now,” the petition reads.

Those attempting to sign the petition on Thursday received the message “petitions is down for maintenance. We know about it and we’re working on it.” Many were angered and some were suspicious of the error message, taking to social media to declare they would continue to try throughout the day and urged their friends and followers to do the same.

“I’ve signed. And it looks like every sane person in the country is signing too. National emergency. Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU. - Petitions,” wrote actor Hugh Grant on Twitter late Wednesday evening.

The "No Deal Brexit" is not popular with a lot of people.  No one in Britain voted for a "No Deal Brexit".  They will get one though if nothing gets done by the 29th.

I said the same thing during the BC HST debate....

 

Something this complicated should not be put into the hands of the common voter. They are far too easily misled (as the "Leave" side were by Farage, Johnson and their ilk) and too lazy to actually educate themselves on the pros and cons of the issue.

Seems like a well played ploy by the British Conservatives. Have a vote making people think they have the power. Have the media make them look stupid and s—- all over them post vote. Drag their feet and create the worst possible deal... Theresa May was pro stay. Hey all of a sudden the people don’t want to leave anymore, we got the result we wanted one way or another. 

 

That’s actually a scary thing cause next time people want a referendum all the government has to do is say “remember brexit”?

Never mistake opportunism of politicians with intelligence of a complicated plot along with flawless execution of it. Politicians are fundamentally, opportunists. A crisis is an opportunity for most of them and they will play the tune that benefits THEM the most. Often, seeing it in hindsight masks the opportunism as conspiracy. And conspiracies are empowering - they make us feel superior to the rest of the masses and appeal to our sense of 'being special' because 'we figured out what most could not'. I say the same thing to the 9/11 conspiracy nutters - that its far easier to believe the US government ( aka politicians) went ' holy cr@p ! the country wants blood and they are too dumb to care WHOSE blood ! lets go murder Iraq under the cover of bloodlust - that way we can steal their oil' than it is to believe an elaborate, multi-year plot involving hundreds of people to mislead the American public so they can steal Iraq's oil and then execute this complex plan to the most minute detail flawlessly.

Hundreds of thousands of people have marched in central London calling for another EU referendum, as MPs search for a way out of the Brexit impasse.

Organisers of the "Put It To The People" campaign say more than a million people joined the march before rallying in front of Parliament.

Protesters carrying EU flags and placards called for any Brexit deal be put to another public vote.

On Thursday, European leaders agreed to delay the UK's departure from the EU.

PM Theresa May is coming under pressure to quit after saying she might not put her Brexit deal to a third vote by MPs.

 

No word on whether the marchers were bused in from New Hampshire.....

A cabinet coup is underway to oust Theresa May - report

Sun 24 Mar 2019 03:55:37 GMT

 

Theresa May faces her Julius Caesar moment

The Ides of March are passed but the knife may just be going into Theresa May's back now.
 
The UK Times reports that a "full-blown cabinet coup" got underway on Saturday as senior ministers moved to push out May and replace her with deputy David Livingston.
 
"The Sunday Times spokes to 11 cabinet minister who confirmed that they wanted the prime minister to make way for someone else," the report says.
 
In a frantic series of private telephone calls, senior ministers agreed the prime minister must announce she is standing down, warning that she has become a toxic and "erratic" figure whose judgment has "gone haywire".
The plotters aim to confront May on Sunday and demand she quit.
 
That may not be easy with May's leadership secured until December because she survived a leadership challenge in Dec 2018 and party rules say she can't be challenged for a year. However, she may not be able to withstand a revolt at such a dicey moment.

Five million sign Revoke Article 50 petition - 100k from Northern Ireland

Petition most popular ever submitted to Parliament website

The Revoke Article 50 petition is the most popular ever submitted to the Parliament website, having leapt ahead of the 4.1 million signatures amassed by a 2016 petition calling for a second EU referendum.

The milestone comes the day after around a million people attended a march on Westminster calling for a People’s Vote.

The Prime Minister ruled out halting the Brexit process when in Brussels on Thursday, telling reporters: “I do not believe that we should be revoking Article 50.”

On Sunday, Chancellor Philip Hammond told Sky News’s Sophy Ridge a second referendum was a “perfectly coherent position” which “deserves to be considered along with the other proposals”.
