0 Have your say An online petition demanding the UK Government revokes Article 50 and allows the country to remain in the EU has attracted more than one million signatures. Fears of a No Deal Brexit intensified last night after Brussels insisted that any delay to the UK’s departure from the EU was conditional on parliament approving Theresa May’s plan. The petition, which was uploaded yesterday to the UK Government’s official online portal, states: “The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is ‘the will of the people’. We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People’s Vote may not happen - so vote now.”Nicola Sturgeon was among the parliamentarians to share the petition.READ MORE: Corbyn won’t rule out stopping Brexit“An issue as big and important as Brexit should not come down to petitions - that said, if you are frustrated … [Read more...] about Brexit: One million sign petition demanding the UK remains in the EU

The RSPCA is appealing for information after two horses were dumped in Leeds. The charity was called about the horses on land off Gelderd Road, Morley on Sunday, January 20. One of the horses had to be put to sleep on the advice of a vet. The colts - the term given to young male un-neutered horses - are described as small cob-types.RSPCA inspector Dave Holgate said: “One of the horses was collapsed when I arrived.“A vet and police came to the scene with me - and a couple of other inspectors were there to help me handle the other horse.“I managed to get the down horse back up on his feet and the vet believed he might have a chance so he was transported to their practice for further care and checks, but very sadly his condition worsened and he was put to sleep on their advice not long after arriving.“He was underweight and suffering from a suspected heavy worm burden.”The surviving horse was treated for worms and is now in RSPCA care at a private boarding … [Read more...] about Horse dies after being dumped along with second colt in Leeds
Ivan Rogers 23 January 2019 1:23 PM 23 January 2019 1:23 PM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp This is a transcript of a lecture Sir Ivan Rogers delivered at UCL European Institute I was asked to talk for about an hour on where Brexit came from and where it may take us.
