U.K. Government rejects petition calling for second EU Referendum

The UK government issued an official response to the widely popular petition asking for a rerun of the EU referendum, where it rules out any possibility of such an event taking place in the foreseeable future.

The Prime Minister and Government have been clear that this was a once in a generation vote and, as the Prime Minister has said, the decision must be respected,” the document highlights.

On the other end, the petition’s primary argument lies on the demand that the winning side of referendums of such a nature, should accumulate a percentage larger than the standard 51% majority.

More specifically, the petition mentions in its online page, “We the undersigned call upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60% based a turnout less than 75% there should be another referendum.

In response, the government stated that the legislation which oversaw the referendum’s rules had “received overwhelming support from Parliament.“, while it further adds, “The Act did not set a threshold for the result or for minimum turnout.

The government’s official response concludes by naming the entire procedure as “one of the biggest democratic exercises in British history with over 33 million people having their say.“, while it urges the nation to “prepare for the process to exit the EU and the Government is committed to ensuring the best possible outcome for the British people in the negotiations.

When it comes to the petition’s background, its founder was revealed to be a former pro-leave activist, at the time when the ‘remain’ side was prevailing in the polls.

According to the government’s website, where the petition had been hosted, a staggering four million people signed for it, in an effort to persuade Prime Minister Cameron to announce a rerun.

Furthermore, various British news outlets’ sources suggest that thousands of the petition’s signatures are not genuine and therefore should not be considered as actual support of the movement.

It is worth adding that the leave side’s win in the referendum has provoked a storm of protest from the younger population, as it is a fact that 74% of the 18-24 age demographic had voted for Britain to remain in the European Union.

UK plans to capture British Jihadi John for role in 4 ISIS beheadings

The British government does not know his real names, but they know he goes by the pseudonym Jihadi John, and they are set to capture him for retributions over his defiant role in beheading two British citizens and two US nationals on video for ISIS. British authorities recognized him as a British citizen working for ISIS despite his covered face in his killing videos, and they are determined the Islamic criminal must be captured for the heinous crimes he has been committing in the name of God.

Recruiting Jihadi John to work and kill for ISIS militants underscores the ability of the terrorist organization to recruit US, UK, Canadian, and other countries’ nationals to join its ranks; and this presents a problem to world leaders – because if ISIS could recruit impressionable and energetic young men from outside its base in Syria and Iraq, then it could as well infiltrate world countries and recruit from within with the singular aim of attacking the target country from within – just like it happened with Osama bin Laden in the September 11 attacks.

UK security agents have reasons to believe that Jihadi John was wounded during a recent US airstrikes on 10 trucks convoy leaving an ISIS summit. Several ISIS top leaders were wounded and killed in the airstrikes, and Jihadi John is believed to have been taken to a border Syrian town for treatment after being wounded during the airstrikes.

UK and US intelligence agents are intensifying efforts to capture this monster of a creator for beheading US and UK citizens with relish on videos. Intelligence organizations are prioritizing Jihadi John’s capture for him to face retribution for his crimes, and to extract information about his involvement with ISIS and other intelligence about the terrorist organization.

Families of slain victims would be glad to have Jihadi John face the gallows, and his capture will ensure that no US or UK citizen or any other identified persons that belong to ISIS will go scot-free without answering for their crimes.
