The Petition - End the British Union - Signing Up

A group member has created an ipetition that you may be interested in, petitioning the break up the U.K. giving independence to Wales, Scotland and the reunification of Ireland. Have a look and let your friends know.

From Daren Swanwick, a member of Facebook

The petition

The current union of the United Kingdom which is constituted from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and England is a union whose day has come. I am English, not British. Many people from what is today called the UK feel the same way about their respective nations. It is time for this union to end. England, Wales, and Scotland need, and deserve, to go their own way. Northern Ireland is Irish, not British, and it's time for them to be allowed to reintegrate with their mother country.

This petition is NOT about racism. My mother was Irish and my paternal grandfather a Scot. This is about the right to a nation to self-determination. I thus call on the government of the United Kingdom to hold a referendum in each of the so-called home nations and allow them a say in their own future.

You are not required to be from any of the aforementioned nations to show your support, but we would like to know where you are writing from. Please also ensure that you sign with both a forename and surname for your signature to be valid.

As well might you leave the fairies to plough your land or the idle winds to sow it, as sit down and wait for freedom.

We don't sit down and wait for freedom - we work for it.
Had the Irish followed that course they would be sitting down waiting even now, under camera surveillance!
