On Thursday 23rd June 2016 the people of the United Kingdom voted in a referendum on whether to remain in the European Union or leave the European Union.
17,410,742 voted to leave the European Union (51.89%) while 16,141,241 voted to remain (48.11%). Turnout was 72.21% of the total number of registered voters.
Based on the result, the UK Government announced that the UK should leave the European Union, by triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.
We believe this decision is undemocratic, unreasonable and unjustified. We believe that Parliament needs time to consider the advisory nature of the referendum, as well as the UK’s strong national interest in remaining in a reformed EU, and the interests of everyone in the UK, instead of rushing to implement the will of the small majority who voted to Leave the EU.
Therefore, we call upon Parliament to exercise its sovereignty and oppose Brexit, so that only a majority vote in the House of Commons can trigger the process of leaving the EU. We believe that all options must be on the table when it comes to deciding, together, whether we should end the UK’s 43-year membership of the European Union, and if so, on what terms.
