It seems to have been stuck on 3,271,300 signatures now for a long time, it was going up a few hundred every few seconds but it's been on 3,271,300 signatures for ages now?

I think a huge part of the problem is the EU making it as difficult as possible to leave. If the EU was a girlfriend, you'd have called the police long before now. Breaking up was never meant to be this hard.


Like this chick?

Those signatures don’t mean a thing in reality....In the real world they are control addicts who will tell you everything is ok with debt...In practically they cannot keep doing what they do....

Questions have been asked about whether a government petition calling for Brexit to be cancelled has been swamped by bots. Bots are automated programmes which can carry out a command thousands of times. The BBC spoke to three cyber-security experts about how likely it is that a number of the 3m signatures gathered so far are not genuine.

Has it happened before?

In 2016, an earlier petition calling for a second EU Referendum attracted 3.6m signatures, but was hijacked by bots.

Well without a plan, they can not have Brexit, just hard Brexit.

Still no viable solution in sight.

I'm not sure of anything anymore.

Aside from what's happening being a crapshoot.

Its just swings and roundabouts now, i dont think they have any idea, what to do nor propose how to fix the situation.

"Maybe your sympathies are somewhat misplaced?"

I know a few rough sleepers and homeless mate, and it is indeed rough.

I don't think my sympathies are misplaced no matter what the Sun claims.

Truth be told the only place the Sun shines from pertaining to that rag, is out its own arse.

Petitions, votes, government, it all amounts to squat really.

As they will simply do as they wish.

That being said i think another general Election is on the cards rather soon.

Only thing is one of the bastards will always win, rinse repeat indeed.

Same crap slightly different wrapping paper.

In reality, the gov do take notice of these petitions, so it does mean something.

3,360,250 signatures and climbing.



Andrea Leadsom told MP’s .."Should it reach 17.4 million respondents then I am sure there will be a very clear case for taking action," she told MPs.

Just another 14 million to go, not that it means anything at all.

Actually it was a 'report' in the Sun of a factual programme on C4 made

by Ed Stafford an ex army captain on homelessness.

I watched it and to say it is an eye opener is an understatement.

Well hats off to the Man for giving a homeless fellow a chance at a proper existence.

Stand by my assessment of our beloved Sun all the same.

Still, don't think my sympathies are misplaced with regards to our homelessness numbers, food banks that operate in a supposed first world nation says it all really.

I've seen real sob stories, don't need to read about them, and the majority of them do indeed involve the homeless people.

Meaninglessness is indeed an issue but it extends somewhat further than just petitions.

All the way to Westminster and back again if truth be told.

True.

As evidenced by the disregard for the result of a democratically held referendum.

You know I have nothing but contempt for those in Westminster....and Brussels/Strasbourg.
As long as the status quo remains intact who cares about irrelevances like democracy and the Right to Self-Determination?

As an aside; We've had two 'meaningful' votes now on May's lame excuse of a deal.
Using the term 'meaningful' surely implies that some votes are 'meaningless'....

You already voted to leave and have not left yet right? It seems to me that those who do not want to leave want to keep pushing a vote until one day they get their way...I don't think the system should work like that. Leave and if you can't handle it without the EU then at some point in that failure re-vote to see if the majority wants to go back.

Seems the vote is done, leave...as per the majorities say...
