Neither Government nor the Leave campaign presented a clear plan about negotiating Brexit. Theresa May has been selected as PM without presenting a clear plan.
There is no plan – but there is so much at stake.
The referendum was only the beginning – the choices made during the Brexit negotiations will be vital for the future of this country.
Government, Parliament and MPs need a real mandate about this crucial process. The country needs an informed and full debate about it. The people need the chance to express their wishes about it.
We need a general election before Brexit formally begins.
Under the Fixed Term Parliament Act 2011, the House of Commons can trigger a general election by voting a motion of no confidence in the government.
We all need this vote so that the coming negotiations reflect the considered and democratically-expressed wishes of this country.
There is a petition to ask Parliament to force an election – 100,000 signatures will ensure Parliament debates it.
