Petitioners push MPs to debate quitting EU after gathering enough support to trigger talks

Last updated at 11:43 AM on 9th August 2011

MPs could be forced into an historic vote on Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union after campaigners gathered enough supporters to trigger a debate.

A petition demanding a straight vote on whether the UK should stay in or leave the EU has attracted more than 100,000 signatures.

It comes as a new YouGov poll published today reveals for the first time that a majority of British people would vote to leave the EU if there was a referendum.

It found that some 60 per cent of voters want a referendum on whether Britain should remain a member of the EU.

If there was a vote, 52 per cent would vote to leave, with only 30 per cent preferring to stay in. Of those polled, 15 per cent were undecided and four per cent would not bother to vote.

EU membership costs Britain £48million a day – or £4,912 per household.

 

The last time the UK held a vote on Britain’s withdrawal from the EU was in 1975, when just over 67 per cent of voters chose to stay in the union following a national referendum.

Prime Minister David Cameron has promised that MPs will dedicate House of Commons time to debating any issue which has the support of at least 100,000 people.

The mountain of signatures has been gathered by independent West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire.

Miss Sinclaire said: ‘Clearly the people of Britain want to decide who governs Britain.

‘It must be alarming to the government that despite all their assurances on sovereignty and cast iron promises, more and more people have given up on this European project.

‘This argument has gone on far too long, we must decide our course once and for all in a binding referendum.’

Miss Sinclaire has gathered 70,000 handwritten signatures as well as 30,000 electronic ones.

Last week, the Government launched a new e-petitions website which allows members of the public to set up their own petitions and sign existing ones.
It has paved the way for MPs to be forced into landmark votes on controversial issues including the death penalty, ending mass migration and legalising cannabis.

Commons leader Sir George Young has warned that MPs cannot ignore the popular groundswell.

But critics warned that the e-petitions would allow the Commons to be hijacked by special interest campaigns and will mean MPs spending precious Parliamentary time on proposals that have little or no chance of becoming law.

Miss Sinclaire fears that the Government will brush off her attempts to force a debate as most of her signatures have been gathered by hand.

However, Sir George has signalled that indicated that a traditional pen-and-ink petition could be lodged with the backbench business committee if it has one or more MPs sponsoring it.

The independent MEP will tell a London press conference today: ‘This is an encouraging development and raises the prospect of an early debate on our continued membership of the EU.

‘To insist that only an online petition will count would disenfranchise millions of people, particularly the poor and elderly, who do not have an email account or access to a computer.
‘The huge response to our campaign, together with the findings of our poll, show that most people want their say.’
