A petition to cancel Brexit has been signed by 6,000,000 people in little over a week – but the Government is still not taking any notice.
Despite slowing down in growth over recent days, the online petition is the most popular ever submitted to the parliamentary website.
At one point nearly 2,000 people were signing up every minute, and its popularity caused the e-petitions website to crash several times.
The petition rejects the claim that Brexit is the ‘will of the people’ and calls for the revocation of the Article 50 letter, which Mrs May triggered in March 2017 giving Britain two years to get its act together before leaving the EU.
It is due to be debated by MPs on Monday after smashing the 100,000 threshold for consideration and becoming the best-supported proposal on the Government’s e-petitions website.
But in an official response, the Government said: ‘This Government will not revoke Article 50. ‘We will honour the result of the 2016 referendum and work with Parliament to deliver a deal that ensures we leave the European Union.’
