Finally, its up and running. Downing Street have pulled their finger out and put up the petition we reqested on Friday.
We have started an email doing the rounds...
Last Friday the people of Ireland voted to reject the Lisbon Treaty.
But politicians across Europe are refusing to accept the result. They arrogantly insist that the Treaty must go ahead anyway. Despite the no vote, the UK Government is planning to carry on regardless, and ratify the Treaty in the House of Lords on Wednesday.
This is part of an attempt to isolate and bully the people of Ireland.
Please take 30 seconds to send a message to Gordon Brown by signing the petition on the Downing Street website.
Tell Gordon to respect the verdict of the Irish people - and drop the Treaty.
How politicians are refusing to listen to the no vote
French Europe Minister Jean-Pierre Jouyet says: “I don't think you can say the treaty of Lisbon is dead even if the ratification process will be delayed.”
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier says: “We are sticking with our goal for it to come into force. The ratification process must continue."
Spanish Europe Minister Lopez Garrido says: “The treaty will be applied, albeit a few months late.”
European Commission President Jose Barroso says: “The Treaty is not dead. The Treaty is alive, and we will try to work to find a solution.”
British Foreign Minister David Miliband says: “18 countries have now passed the reform treaty...each country must see the ratification process to a conclusion... there needs to be a British view as well as an Irish view.”
Don’t let the politicians get away with it.
