Petition demanding Brexit WITHOUT transition hits 30k but Government REFUSES to accept it
SUPPORT for a petition demanding Britain leaves the EU without a transition has rocketed past 30,000 signatures in frustration of Brussels ordering the UK abides by its laws without having a say.
Under proposals from Brussels, Britain would be subject to all EU rules and regulations, including freedom of movement, but have no control on the bloc’s decision making until the two-year Brexit transition ends.
Brexiteers including Jacob Rees-Mogg have claimed the deal would make Britain a “vassal state” and have branded it an “ultimatum”.
And an online petition claims the idea of a transition is a “betrayal” of the 17.4 million leave voters, calling for the UK to exit immediately in 2019 with no implementation period.
But the Government defended itself against the petition, saying a transition does not mean “postponing Brexit”.
