Brexit is failing because nobody wants it says Petition of 5+ Million
British PM Theresa May’s valiant efforts may have failed because Brits don’t really want to leave the European Union. They shouldn’t, say more than 5.1 million which is 5 million more than is needed to trigger a parliamentary debate.

The British public is speaking out against Brexit in the millions. That cannot be ignored. But there are significant voices being heard from Theresa May’s side of the house.
Speaking out in contrast with his party leader‘s obstinate stand against a second Brexit plebiscite, Chancellor Philip Hammond said a second referendum is a “coherent proposition” that deserves consideration.
“One way or another Parliament is going to have the opportunity this week to decide what it is in favor of, and I hope that it will take that opportunity — if it can’t get behind the Prime Minister’s deal — to say clearly and unambiguously what it can get behind,” Hammond told Sky News.
“I’m not sure that there’s a majority in Parliament for a second referendum but it’s a perfectly coherent proposition — many people will be strongly opposed to it, but it’s a coherent proposition and it deserves to be considered along with the other proposals.”
The Debate was Heating Up over the past Three Years
More history. Above, at the front of a demonstration against Brexit in Manchester in September 2017, a float showed a multi-headed chimera with the faces of Theresa May and three leading Brexit campaigners: Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Environment Secretary Michael Gove and Brexit Secretary David Davis. It beared the inscription “Brexit is a monstrosity” – “Let’s stop it”. The float was made by Jacques Tilly and his team, opposing Brexit.
