Farrell urges Derry to sign Brexit petition

Farrell
SDLP Ballyarnett election candidate, Rory Farrell, has urged the people of Derry to sign a petition to stop Brexit and remain in the European Union. The online petition, which has already gained over five million signatures, is asking the British Government to revoke Article 50 and to remain in the EU. Mr Farrell said: "Derry overwhelmingly voted to remain in the European Union. Over 32,000 of us realised the importance of the EU and voted accordingly on June 23, 2016. "A massive 78 per cent supported continued EU membership. We had the highest remain vote in the North and the fourth highest of all constituencies. "The petition is gaining traction, and so far, 10,000 people from Derry have signed it. This represents less than a third of people that voted to remain in the EU." "Brexit is a mess and the only common sense solution is to stop it now. "This petition is your opportunity to send a strong message to Theresa May and her cohorts that we want to stay.
