Fighting Back : EU Special

There are lots of petitions that have sprung up in the wake of the result of the EU referendum last week; indeed, Change has a whole page devoted to them which you can view here (though be warned, Change doesn't discriminate between those disappointed by the result, and those who are happy with it) There are some really good ones here, such as the one calling for 16/17 year olds to have the right to vote should a second referendum be held..

Which brings me to the biggest petition at the moment, the one calling for a repeat referendum over on the parliament petitions site. Already, over 3 million have signed it. Please add your name here


  1. The BBC’s desperate shilling for Remain will come under increasing scrutiny as we exclusively reveal that the supposed ‘popular petition’ for a second referendum – wholly illegal and unworkable, and unprecedented in British history – is a prank by notorious 4 Chan posters.

    The BBC, the UK’s national broadcaster, gleefully reported, as real, with no basic journalistic checks, an online petition that appeared to be growing at a colossal rate. By 1:30 pm, it was one of the fastest-growing petitions in history.

    So fast, in fact, that somebody should have checked for bots and scripts. The BBC is failing totally in its Charter Duty to perform basic journalistic research

    1. But is a 2nd ref as illegal as the rise in hate crime since the result? Is it as unworkable as the mess we're currently in, with no sign of a plan of action on the horizon whatsoever?

      It may well be set up with false intentions, but there are a lot of other petitions - see the link above - that are asking for basically the same thing.
