38 Degrees

Dear John,

Last week - on national television - Boris Johnson refused to rule out the unthinkable. If he becomes Prime Minister, he could shut down Parliament to force through a no-deal Brexit. [1]

Shutting down Parliament means MPs get sent home. Voters like us get locked out altogether. [2] All to push through a no-deal Brexit that could spell disaster for our NHS, jobs, and the food on our plates. [3]

Boris Johnson and his team will be monitoring to see how his TV appearance went down with the public. A huge petition would show him exactly what we think. The backlash could convince him to rule out shutting down our Parliament.

Already over 130,000 people have signed the petition to stop our next Prime Minister from bypassing democracy and shutting us out. Will you add your name now? 



The power to shut down Parliament is called “proroguing”. It allows Prime Ministers to suspend Parliament and send MPs home. It’s an outdated power that’s almost never used, but top politicians are seriously talking about using it as a way of pushing through a no-deal Brexit. [4]

Some MPs are already speaking out about the risk to our democracy if Parliament is shut down. [5] But if we’re going to prove to our next Prime Minister that they can’t lock us out to force through a no-deal Brexit, we need to show the public won’t stand for it either.

Will you add your name to the petition right now? 


Thanks for everything you do,

Trish, Holly, Gordon and the 38 Degrees team


[1] This week Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt took part in a debate on ITV. When Boris Johnson was asked if he’d be willing to take the unprecedented step of shutting down parliament to force through a disastrous no-deal Brexit, he said “I’m not going to take anything off the table.”
