Sign the petition to Rejoin the European Union.

We say, UK Back In.

Brexit is a profound historical wrong turn. Ten years of economic restructuring, and major constitutional upheaval within the United Kingdom, will not deliver the land of hope and glory that the Leavers have offered. Far from 'taking back control', the referendum has immediately unleashed constitutional, political and economic/market chaos, leaving Britain less able to determine its own destiny than at any time since the Second World War. While we face immediate financial uncertainty, neither are there any guarantees of substantial benefits in the medium or long-term. The false promises will become increasingly apparent in the months, years and decades to come.

Over this time, the country's youth - increasingly global in their outlook - will demand the same benefits and rights of their continental peers. Around 75 percent of young British voted to Remain; just as the wishes and designs of the Eurosceptics were never assuaged over the decades, so the values and desires of the new generation will only strengthen as time passes.

Those of us who all at once love England (and Wales and Northern Ireland and Scotland), Britain and Europe will never reconcile to this historical debacle. We believe our country can retain its special character while also committing firmly to be an open, positive and engaged nation -- including with our European neighbours.

We therefore declare from today that we want to reverse the UK's withdrawal from the European Union. Perhaps we can halt the process before it becomes a reality. Or we may have to labour for years, after Brexit, until the circumstances emerge when the UK can reapply.

For now, it is a vital expression of values, of frustration and of personal sanity. But Rejoin is our ambition, and our dream, and by signing this petition, you can keep hope alive.
