    Ask for 'EU Membership for Individuals', when negotiating leaving EU.
    'A choice for individuals who wish 'To travel/study/work ' for £4:50 week or any other amount deemed reasonable. It excludes public health and benefits, if no reciprocal arrangement by the EU.'
    Since the main cause of Brexit was the magnetic state benefits package, allowed by the UK. This is not designed to encourage mass migration, but to allow individuals to pursue visa free travel, and to study and work to broaden their horizons, learn languages and foster good relations.At 10,000 signatures, government will respond to this petitionAt 100,000 signatures, this petition will be considered for debate in ParliamentShare this petition

    Care to link to a credible source so we can see what you are going on about?

    If they have already approved the petition then why are you launching it today?
    A petition has to be approved first.
    It has to be deemed credible and possible.
    It has to be investigated.

    THAT'S JUST A LINK TO THE PETITION I.E POST#1

    What im getting is the givernment has nothing to do with the petition.
    All you have done is start a petition on the website like everyone else.

    Stop saying its been approved
    srip saying the government have adopted it as part of brexit negotiations, because you fail to provide any proof.

    If you get the requisite number of signatures, then it is considered by a committeee about whether it will be discussed in parliament. It may not be. Nothing binding about it.

    The whole thing is unworkable.

    They think the fact they got 5 signatures so it is now live on the petitions website means the government has approved it.

    This is absurd, as stated by others it's not viable(I'm also pro EU).

    Anyone can create a petition. If it reaches 10k and merits a reply they'll reach the same conclusion that most of the people on this thread have.

    They require more than five signatures and its has to be approved before it is published. It takes time.

    It requires 5 signatures and them to check and see if anyone has made a similar petition.

    It was origknally presented in another format which was rejected, and restated by them to be viable.
    If it were not viable they would not have approved it for publication.

    Anyone cannot create a petition, just like anyone can not run for MP.

    The government has to approve a petition before it is published as such.
    Just like it approves a referendum, which it then has to approve.

    It's not a viable idea to put into practice, like I said you can petition for anything(within reason), they're not giving the idea itself a seal of approval.

    Except that anyone can run to be an MP. Why do you think there's so many joke candidates knocking around come election time?
