To name a few: Freedom to work/reside/study/retire in any of the 28 countries Common EU regulations on the transportation and disposal of toxic waste 13% of EU budget earmarked for scientific research and innovation/EU funding for research European Regional funding - Cornwall and Wales benefitted massively from this and our Government won't replace those lost funds ...

The petition has 5.4 million signatures now. If it is so easy to fake why did the "leave with no deal" petition only get 540k signatures (and by the way got a response and a debate in Parliament)? Although some of those signatures look "dodgy" {"name":"United ...

@Paul concerning the benefits of being the EU I already know your answer "... we would still have that"

I don't believe for a second that the EU wants to become this superstate that some people believe but if it did and tax and budgets are set centrally (no different to the UK now and regional areas). The UK had a massive influence in the EU and it would have still been our MPs and MEPs discussing and voting on each bit of legalisation. Let's assume everyone gets to vote in the election of the ...

" EU wants to end national vetoes on taxation" they want to change from unanimity to qualified majority voting so a single national couldn't block legalisation and the tax they are talking about isn't national tax rights in the first phase. The second phase may affect VAT but not touch income tax. You are right they don't have to agree on all changes to legalisation but still a majority ...

Parties had little choice but to mention and support Brexit in their manifesto for the 2017 election! Does that mean all the years Brexit wasn't mentioned that counts for remain? Not sure how the EU can be a dictatorship when all 27 states have to agree! That's not how dictatorships work.

The vote was nearly 3 years ago or have you forgotten we get to vote again on the same things in a democracy after a few years?

It is not about being sore losers, I would have accepted leaving if we had agreed on a deal and left but the Government have made a mess of it, we also now have a lot more knowledge (or should have if not blinded by our biases!) of what it all means. The EU isn't to blame for this mess or the mess of the country, that is and always has been down to the Government.

Stop saying the will of the people. 16 million didn't vote for it and nearly 13 million didn't vote at all. If it was 52% to 48% you wouldn't be saying "the will of the people" as your guiding light Farage said he would have fought that small a margin. We are trying to leave having wasted 2 years, arrogantly believing we can get any deal we want through. seeing the damaged it is doing and no one ...
