Government statement on the petition calling for a second EU Referendum, 9 July 2016

Post by Tony Bennett on 09.07.16 17:06

So important for the future of our country that I am putting it here for reference.

It is the government's very plain response to a petition which undemocratic Remainers have been promoting to the extent that, at the time of writing, they have gained over 4,127,000 votes for it.

Here is the statement:

=============================================================   

The European Union Referendum Act received Royal Assent in December 2015, receiving overwhelming support from Parliament. The Act did not set a threshold for the result or for minimum turnout.

The EU Referendum Act received Royal Assent in December 2015. The Act was scrutinised and debated in Parliament during its passage and agreed by both the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

The Act set out the terms under which the referendum would take place, including provisions for setting the date, franchise and the question that would appear on the ballot paper.

The Act did not set a threshold for the result or for minimum turnout.

As the Prime Minister made clear in his statement to the House of Commons on 27 June, the referendum was one of the biggest democratic exercises in British history with over 33 million people having their say.

The Prime Minister and Government have been clear that this was a once in a generation vote and, as the Prime Minister has said, the decision must be respected.

We must now prepare for the process to exit the EU and the Government is committed to ensuring the best possible outcome for the British people in the negotiations.

Jeremy Corbyn's Post-Brexit statement:


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-36628305

QUOTE

[Corbyn] also announced a review of immigration policy and ruled out a new EU referendum if Labour wins power.

He said: "The referendum has taken place, a decision has been made, I think we have got to respect that decision and work out our relationship with Europe in the future."

UNQUOTE

In the days before the Referendum, Corbyn also gave an audience several very clear reasons for LEAVING the EU, here:

THERESA MAY'S POST-BREXIT SPEECH:

BREXIT MEANS BREXIT


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TP1u1K5CCNs

Verbatim extracts from the speech: 

BREXIT means BREXIT.

The campaign was fought.

The vote was held.

Turnout was high.

And the public gave their verdict.

There must be no attempts to remain inside the EU.

No attempts to rejoin it through the back door.

And no second Referendum.

The country voted to LEAVE the European Union.

And it is the duty of rhe government and Parliament to make sure we do just that.

There should be no General Election until 2020.



If ever there was a time for the Prime Minister who is ready and able to do the job, from Day One, THIS IS IT.  

There is work to do…to negotiate a sensible and orderly departure from the European Union.

PRESIDENT OBAMA - "The referendum result is going to stick"



http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-36754376 - 9 July 2016

 

QUOTE
It comes as US President Barack Obama said he believed the UK would quit the European Union despite speculation the vote for Brexit could somehow be reversed.

"I think we have to assume that a referendum having been passed with a lot of attention, a lengthy campaign and relatively high participation rates is going to stick," he told a news conference at the end of a Nato summit in Warsaw.

Statements in support of Theresa May by two BREXIT supporters, Chris Grayling and Priti Patel

Statements in support of Theresa May by two BREXIT supporters, Chris Grayling and Priti Patel


STATEMENTS OF CHRIS GRAYLING, LEADER OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS AND LORD PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIlL, BREXIT SUPPPORTER

http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/688041/Chris-Grayling-Theresa-May-freedom-of-movement

Interviewed by Andrew Neil on 10 July, and asked how he could support her after she campaigned for ‘Remain’, he said:

QUOTE  “And the very clear mandate from the British public, something that, er, Theresa absolutely, 100% recognised – and said in her, er, speech in the campaign launch last week: ‘We have to take back control of our migration system’.

----

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07jqqhn#play

And on the BBC (Radio 4) tonight at 6.07pm, he said this:

QUOTE: “Now I’ve known Theresa for a very long time. She’s a very determined politician, er, I know that having got a mandate from the public over Brexit, that she will do that [control immigration]. I wouldn’t be supporting her, if that wasn’t the case"

 

STATEMENT BY PRITI PATEL, SECRETARY OF STATE FOR EMPLOYMENT, BREXIT SUPPORTER

In the Sun, 7 July:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/1410048/theresa-may-has-the-vision-determination-and-experience-to-be-our-next-prime-minister-and-is-the-strongest-candidate-for-the-job/

EXTRACT FROM HER ARTICLE:

“Although we took a different position on the EU Referendum, when Theresa says we will be leaving the EU and the will of the people will be implemented she means it and I know she will deliver and get the best deal for Britain.

“Under her leadership, the tribalism of the referendum campaign will also end because Theresa knows that by uniting together we can make our country fairer, greater and more prosperous. Theresa is bold, decisive and gets things done”.

MORE QUOTABLE QUOTES:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Government leaflet about the Referendum:

"This is your decision. The Government will implement what you decide."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

John Lamberton, owner of the UK Justice Forum:

Refusing to implement Brexit after the majority voted for it would cause a huge loss in credibility for any government and spell disaster for any such referendums in the future.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Standard dictionary definition of the word 'referendum':

"A matter referred to the people for decision". 


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

David Cameron, quoted in the Guardian, 23 February, at the start of the EU Referendum campaign, saying:

"I would argue this is a much bigger decision because at election times you can vote in a team of people and if you’ve got fed up with them after five years you can vote them out. This is a decision that lasts for life. We make this decision and it is probably going to be the only time in our generation when we make this decision
".


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Martin Howe QC, expert in constitutional law and Chairman of Lawyers for Britain, speaking after Mishcon de Reya announced that, on behalf of an unnamed group of clients, it had started to pull together a team who would be ready to head to court if the government attempted to start the Article 50 process without first securing an Act of Parliament:

“The proposed action is devoid of all legal merit. As a matter of political authority, the decision of the British people not merely permits but mandates the giving of notice, without the need for any vote by Parliament”.

Two hours ago, Theresa May was effectively made the Prime Minister of the UK when Andrea Leadsom withdrew from the race to lead the Conservative Party.

I was able to listen to 'News at One' on BBC Radio 4 today and several very significant and statesmanlike comments on BREXIT were made by:

Theresa May

Andrea Leadsom 

Chris Grayling, (Leader of the House of Commons. BREXIT supporter and May supporter) and

Helen Wheeler, (MP for a Derbyshire constituency, BREXIT supporter and Leadsom supporter).

All were very good and robust in emphasizing that 'BREXIT means BREXIT'.

I will try to post up the link and any transcripts of their very important words as soon as I am able.

One of them, I can't remember whether it was Leadsom or Wheeler, went further than the others and said something like: "BREXIT means BREXIT and it doesn't mean a Norway-type arrangement, it doesn't mean a Switzerland-type arrangement, we are the fifth largest economy in the world and we can and will simply negotiate a free trade agreement, we are powerful enough to do so" [i.e. we do not need to be part of the single market].
