A petition calling for a ”People’s Vote if Parliament rejects the EU Withdrawal Agreement’ has hit 100,000 signatures.
Any petition which surpasses 100,000 signatures is automatically considered for debate in Parliament.
MPs will vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal on the 11th December and many believe that the deal will be strongly rejected from all sides of the House.
Conservative eurosceptics and remain voters will unite against the deal and join forces with the Labour party, SNP, Greens and Liberal Democrats.
However, thousands of remain voters are demanding a second Brexit vote if Parliament rejects May’s deal.
The petition states: “The Prime Minister has negotiated an EU withdrawal agreement. However, it is clear from resignations and interviews that the deal will not pass Parliament. As no credible alternative has been proposed, the public must be allowed to vote on whether to accept this deal or to remain in the EU.
“Dominic Raab’s resignation is perhaps the strongest indication that this withdrawal agreement will not be approved by Parliament. However, he is responsible for this deal as former Brexit Secretary, which suggests that a better deal is not possible. The only better deal is to remain in the EU on similar terms to what we have now – not in Schengen, not in the Euro, deciding on EU legislation.”

I, along with most of you reading this are probably staunchly against a second vote. To be honest, we should have anticipated all of this. Why on earth would the political elites and establishment accept the 2016 EU referendum vote so easily?
A second vote would damage trust among voters and simply create more uncertainty.
