A petition calling for the UK to leave the EU without a deal has attracted more than 300,000 signatures.
Many of our readers will know that a petition calling for the UK to leave the EU without a deal is currently the largest open petition on the government website, dwarfing its pro-remain competitors.
We are happy to report to you all that the petition has worked and the government will debate leaving the EU without a deal on the 14th of January.
This is a major milestone and I would like to thank you all for your hard work in sharing the petition far and wide.

It states: “We are wasting Billions of pounds of taxpayers money trying to negotiate in a short space of time. Leaving the EU in March 2019 will allow the UK good time to negotiate more efficiently. The EU will be more eager to accept a deal on our terms having lost a major partner.
Adding: “We will save billions of pounds from our EU divorce payment as well as a similar amount from Civil Service and Govt costs.
This money will be used to support our own country whilst we await the EU to talk to us to make deals more in our favour.
The EU border in Ireland to be managed simply by having a dual Euro/pound currency as legal tender in both the North and South. Exports to the South would be dealt with in Euro and vice versa when importing to the North. Rates fixed at time of the deal.”
The government did respond to the petition once it received 10,000 signatures.
They said: “The deal that we have reached with the EU is the right one for the United Kingdom. Leaving without a deal would risk uncertainty for the economy, for business and for citizens.”
“Neither Parliament nor the Government want a ‘no deal’ scenario. However, as a responsible Government, we will continue to prepare for all eventualities.”
Once again, thank you all. This just proves if enough good minded people can unite together, anything can happen.
