The numbers are going up quickly, went up 3000 in less than a minute while I was watching.
Most rapidly signed petition in UK history which has crashed the site at least twice today.
Yes, she said she started it without much hope of it gaining traction but it's gone viral probably as a result of that weird speech she gave yesterday.
I just heard Leadsom say it would need to be above 17.4 million before anyone in government would take it seriously.
so looooooong way to go.
We're forced to take Andrea Leadsom seriously. That's what really hurts.
Anyway, challenge accepted AL :0
It would someone very persuasive indeed to make me believe that anyone in government right now is listening to anything anyone says that doesn’t agree with them.
And meanwhile this country has been reduced to a global laughingstock.
This petition is a disgrace and sets out to stop democracy and the will of the people. It will never get near the great number of over 17 million citizens who correctly voted out.
It is also flawed as it sets up the legitimacy of a third and fourth referendum.
Since the great Brexit Referendum when over 410 constituencies voted to Leave, the economy has done very well, thank you.
January had record tax receipts for the government from working people and businesses.
Unemployment keeps falling to record lows each month and the economy keeps growing every quarter. Remainers promised us the opposite and they are now discredited, as this petition will be.
We should have Brexit more often as politicians stop interfering in the economy and the economy grows.
Meanwhile, the Yellow Vests in one of the EU's leading countries, France, have been protesting for the last 17 weekends about falling living standards in France and the EU. The French police have fired riot gas at them, beaten them up and used water cannons on these working class protestors. The EU knows how to treat the working people when they are struggling to live and be heard!
The working class will continue to prosper in the UK after Brexit. It's going to be great.
Sounds like you are really looking forward to the Eurovision song contest...
I get that you're kind of trolling but it's sad to see this level of naivety. The irony of course is that brexit is likely to hit the working class the hardest.
