THOUSANDS of Leaver voters give EXTRA-BOOST to petition demanding no deal Brexit

Eurosceptic signatories insist a no deal will save Britain billions of pounds by not paying the EU divorce bill. A rival e-petition calling for Theresa May to scrap Brexit by revoking Article 50 has got nearly 3.5 million signatures. Last night, EU leaders agreed a plan to delay the UK’s exit from the trade bloc until May 22 if MPs back Theresa May’s deal next week.

But if her withdrawal agreement fails for a third time, the EU will push back the leave date from March 29 to April 12 to give the embattled Prime Minister more time.

The Leave petition said: “We are wasting billions of pounds of taxpayers money trying to negotiate in a short space of time.

“Leaving the EU in March 2019 will allow the UK good time to negotiate more efficiently.

“The EU will be more eager to accept a deal on our terms having lost a major partner.”

Savings would also be made to Civil Service and Government costs, the petition claims.

Money saved from leaving without a deal could be used to support Britain “whilst we await the EU to talk to us to make deals more in our favour”.

Exports from Northern Ireland to the Republic of Ireland would be dealt with in euros, and in pounds for goods travelling into Northern Ireland from the Republic, the petition also claimed.

Savings would also be made to Civil Service and Government costs, the petition claims.

The petition was set up at the end of last year and has received more signatures since a rival petition was launched.

Hugh Grant, Brian Cox, Annie Lennox and Jennifer Saunders are among those who have signed the rival petition to cancel Brexit.

Speaking yesterday to the BBC, Jeremy Hunt said Article 50 could still be revoked in Parliament.

But Article 50’s author, Lord Kerr, is adamant it can’t be revoked without a referendum or general election.

The Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU petition says: ”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.”
