    Click on the link, read and sign if you want the basic individual EU privileges of most concern to students and young people.

    On its first day up in TSR 800, now 900, mow 1,000 people looked at this thread and only 4 signed it.
    This indicates either that most that visited are not UK,citizens or don't care for the idea proposed. Is there another explanation? This is how ideas and desires become a reality, no matter how 'impossible' they seem.

    You can't have people living under a different legal system,. although I'll admit there are establishment figures who seem to get away with it. It's just more farce.

    This would be the most complicated thing imaginable and unworkable. Can you imagine the outcry from citizens from countries all across the globe to be allowed EU membership?

    There are actually several 'citizenship by investment' schemes available which would give someone a passport from an EU country. But you'll need hundreds of thousands if not millions of pounds. So as a mechanism for regular people - no chance.

    This could be as little as £4:50 a week.

    Why does your thread title mean "now approved by government"?

    It is no more complicated than a student union card that allows you certain pre arranged privileges.

    The government will only entertain a petition for a matter that is possible and has not been requested before, and is phesable.

    Students do not live under a different legal system just because they have a student card. This is no different, it simply confers a privilege, and you choose to join.
    And the legal system in the uk is commonlaw not statute, as it is in Europe, which has not caused any concern.

    I already understood that, but your thread title is misleading or doesnt make any sense.

    The government has now approved the petition to request individual membership as a part of the deal, when they negotiate Brexit.

    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?

    I'm strongly pro-EU but surely that is impossible. Like someone else has said, you can't have different people living together under different legal systems. Anyway how would it benefit anyone? EU benefits apply to businesses, grants for community projects and so on - things which don't apply to individuals. Also Europe wouldn't get the benefit of our membership because we would be paying in less and Europeans still wouldn't have free access to the UK. It doesn't make any sense.

    EU membership is on a state-by-state basis, not for individuals.

    If you want to be a citizen of the EU then chase down membership with a remaining EU member state.
