"Rescind Art.50 if Vote Leave has broken Electoral Laws regarding 2016 referendum"

I haven't got a lot of faith in petitions in general or in particular in ones that are asking these politicians trapped in a web of their own making to backtrack in a way that most likely seems impossible and undesirable to them, but nonetheless, one has to try:

"Rescind Art.50 if Vote Leave has broken Electoral Laws regarding 2016 referendum"



Article 50.1 of the Lisbon Treaty sets out that a member can leave by " Any Member State may decide to withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements."

Also, Article 10.3 of the Lisbon Treaty, "Every citizen shall have the right to participate in the democratic life of the Union. Decisions shall be taken as openly and as closely as possible to the citizen."
