Opposing Brexit should be made an act of "treason" and be punishable by life in prison, a Conservative councillor has suggested in a petition to Parliament.
Guildford councillor Christian Holliday's petition, on the House of Commons website, calls for an amendment to the Treason Felony Act to make supporting UK membership of the European Union a crime.
Profiles in courage.
Asked about the petition, Prime Minister Theresa May's official spokeswoman said: "Different people will choose their words differently.
"The Prime Minister has been very clear that the British people have made their decision and we should respect the will of the British people. That's how she would put it."
