Today, we sent an email reminder to the office of Mrs. May at No 10 from which we received a reply to our original Petition.
This is what we delivered in our Petition to you earlier this year with over 1.2 million signatures! (see below). This is what the Electorate voted for when they chose Leave and hopefully you will confirm that you are delivering this today!!
I cannot emphasise enough the importance of listening to the 17.4 million voters! The Remain Voters were listened to at the time of the debates.
The majority voted to Leave – Leave the EU in its entirety!
May I remind you in your letter dated 9th April, on behalf of the Prime Minister you stated “being out of the EU but remaining a member of the Single Market would mean accepting a role for the European Court of Justice. It would mean still not having control over immigration. It would, to all intents and purposes, mean not leaving the EU at all. By leaving the Customs Union, we will be able to forge new trade relationships with our partners around the world”.
The Prime Minister’s Chequers Deal would appear in contradiction to your statement and if rumours are true, then what is being delivered today, is too contradictory and not addressing the wishes of the majority of the Electorate.
Open Letter to Mrs. May and the Government.
Monday, 19th March, 2018.
Mrs. T. May,
10 Downing Street,
London, SW1A 2AA.
Dear Mrs May,
I would like to point you to “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights “Article 21 (3) the will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government…”
We, over 17.4 million UK citizens who voted leave, would reiterate our previous letters to you. By voting Leave, we understood it, and also believe that, leaving the EU means.
- No Single Market
- No Customs Union
- No European Courts of Justice
- No EU Army (PESCO)
- No Transition
- Control of our Borders
- Regain Fishing Waters
- Rebate to Farmers
- Free Trade Deal (failing which, we trade under WTO rules)
- No Money to EU
- Share of EU profits for which the UK handsomely contributed over the years
- British Citizens living in the EU and EU Citizens in the UK to be treated equally.
If we fail to secure any of the above, then we LEAVE on 29th March, 2019 – No Deal!We are no longer the Silent Majority, we voted for complete Independence. May we point out the following points.
1. The European Union Referendum Act 2015 Section 1 (4) states that the question to appear on the ballot papers is ‘should the UK remain a member of the European Union or Leave the EuropeanUnion.” The European Union comprises of the Single Market, the Customs Union and the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and the provisions of the EU Treaties which were entered into without the consent of the Electorate.
2. The meanings and implications of this were fully aired and debated publicly as part of the Referendum process. Following this, on 23rd June, 2016 a significant majority of the electorate voted to leave the E U.
3. Following a judicial review challenge which went to the Supreme Court, the House of Commons voted again by a significant majority, to authorise the Government to notify the European Union of its intention to withdraw from the Union pursuant to Article 50.
4. Article 50 (2) imposes an obligation on the EU to negotiate and conclude an agreement with the UK (the withdrawing state) setting out the arrangement for its withdrawal taking account of the framework for its future relationships with the EU. Thus the obligation was on the EU to set out its proposals and not the other way around.
5. Article 50 (3) states that the UK (the withdrawing state) shall cease to be a member of the EU (a) when any such withdrawal agreement shall have come into force or (b) 2 years from the date of the notification whichever shall first occur.
6. Any withdrawal Agreement, which leaves the UK in the Single Market, Customs Union and the ECJ and EU treaties, after the set date, is contrary to and inconsistent with, the decision arrived at by the Referendum decision. In that event, the actions of the Government will be unconstitutional and undemocratic and likely to lead to considerable public unrest.
We hear some of your MPs saying that we have to bring the country together and listen to the 48%, as the country is divided. Would you agree to nationalise industries because it is put forward by Corbyn supporters? With respect, the country is always divided every time a General Election is held, and the ‘48%’ were heard throughout the EU Referendum Debate, and now the country has spoken by a Majority – to LEAVE the EU in its entirety. At no time, on the ballot paper, were the words written ‘to include a transitional period’ mentioned.
We hope that you will now move forward and remove us completely from the political construct which is the EU by the date set after triggering Article 50, and democratically agreed on 23rd June, 2016. If you feel you are unable to carry out the process of this Country leaving the EU in its entirety, then may we respectfully ask that you gracefully step aside and allow a Brexiteer MP to conclude our arrangement to completely withdraw from the EU by the set date.We look forward to your transparent reply.
