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.’

EU REFERENDUM IN SIGHT AS 100,000 DEMAND A SAY


The campaign for a referendum on Britain’s EU membership is given a double boost today. (Tues)

A petition demanding a straight “in or out” vote has now attracted more than 100,000 signatures  – which should be enough to force a Commons debate.

The breakthrough is bolstered by a new YouGov poll which reveals a clear majority  want ordinary people to have the fInal say on whether we pull out.
 
For the first time the YouGov poll shows a majority of people would actually vote to leave the European Union in an referendum.

The mountain of signatures has been collected in a cross-party campaign led by West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire.

It will pile pressure on the Prime Minister to hold the first referendum on Europe since 1975.

Mr Cameron has pledged to dedicate House of Commons time to any issue which has the support of at least 100,000 people.

While he insists the names must be collected on individually entered electronic petitions, the Commons Leader’s  office has 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.

Nikki 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 – Almost eight in ten people want a national debate on the pros and cons of EU membership”

“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.”

Today’s poll shows overwhelming support for letting the public decide our future in the EU – and if they got their way they would vote to pull out.

Some 60% of voters want a referendum on whether Britain should remain a member of the EU, according to the YouGov survey commissioned by Nikki’s campaign.

If there was a vote, a massive 52% would vote to leave, with only 30% preferring to stay in and 15%  undecided and 4% not bothering to vote.

Nikki, an independent MEP, added: 

“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”

MPs are already facing demands to debate bring back hanging after 100,000 backed the move in an e-petition.

But Nikki points out that Britain is powerless to restore the death penalty while still in the EU because it would breach the UK’s membership conditions by breaching the EU’s Fundemental Charter on human rights.

She believes we get the worst of both worlds while inside the EU but outside the EUroZone.

“We have one foot in and one foot outside it,” she said. “This is detrimental to our interests and to those of the EU, both politically and economically. We need to take a decision as to where our future lies.

“Despite numerous promises, nobody under the age of 54 has ever had a say on Britain’s relationship with the EU. This issue needs to be resolved.”

EU membership costs Britain £48 million a day – or £4,912 per household over the last 11 years.

But we have signed away power to decide our own future, with 75 per cent of British regulation coming from EU law.
 
Nikki also pays tribute to the hundreds of people across the country who have helped collate the petition including one gentleman in Dorset who has collected 2,000 signatures. Nikki said 

“I’m overwhelmed by the level of support and the dedication of these people who truly are an inspiration.”

CONGRATULATIONS to Nikki Sinclaire MEP and her supporters and team

Let us hope that the mindless and moronic stupidity that has broken out in London and the obscene attempt by Ken Livingstone to exploit it for personal gain does not provide so much schloch horror footage that other genuine news is forced out of the media.
