Amid the ongoing Brexit chaos, a petition entitled 'Offer the Republic of Ireland full UK membership so they can rejoin the Union' has been set up online.

Currently standing at over 300 signatures, the petition states that 'At 10,000 signatures, government will respond to this petition' and 'At 100,000 signatures, this petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.'

The description reads 'The RoI left our Union in 1922 after 121 years of being part of the family. We should now ask them to reconsider their position within both the UK & EU as a way of solving the current impasse over the Irish border issue that is holding up the Withdrawal Agreement. Britain & Ireland stronger together'

The appeal was set up by a person called Scott Packer and has a deadline of July 9 2019. While it's fairly unlikely to gain much support over here, you can check it out for yourself via this link.
