And? Around 1.3 million Brits live in EU countries outside the UK.

Btw, for someone who accuses others of trolling, you troll quite a lot. Bad "winner", eh.

Yes I have already.

Using NordVPN I signed the petition from Moscow under an assumed name (Boris Leaveski) and confirmed it from Turkey

Well I go to the foot of our stairs!

Do these petitions actually matter?

Apparently not.

Faraday

According to the latest figures on line, out of 4,456,315 signatures, 120 gave addresses in Russia. We now know that one of those was Faraday playing silly buggers. One wonders how many of the others were sock-puppets for Nick Farage, trying to create evidence to support his ludicrous claims about Russian interference in the petition.

Looking back at the earlier petition that Faraday recommends to us: 'Brexit re article 50 it must not be suspended/stopped under any circumstances' - the grand total of signatories was of course just 116,484 - of whom rather oddly 118 were in the USA. One place where signatories to that petition were NOT in large numbers was SE1 - just 115 of Neil Coyle's constituents (0.08%) signed it. (In contrast 19,244 of his constituents have signed the new petition.)

The British people, and UK residents from Commonwealth countries and the Irish Republic, have voted in the 2016 'United Kingdom European Union membership referendum'.

By a small margin (3.78%) they voted to leave, compared to the majority of voters in the June 1975 'United Kingdom European Communities membership referendum' which resulted in an overwhelming join vote (34.46%).

Those who voted in the 2016 referendum, made a decision based on flawed and outright false information, such as what was displayed on the infamous Brexit Bus:



The lie

MPs have been asked to vote for three times on the same question yet it isn't possible for the British people (now that the realisation of what Brexit is actually going to mean for them is dawning upon them) to do the same, at least one more time?

To me this doesn't appear to be an outrageous question: it is only common sense to give a fool the opportunity to redeem himself...

Celebrate what exactly?


I wonder why Brexiters' main concern always is to upset the people who disagree with them as much as possible. You'd expect Brexiters to be content, but they seem so vindictive and full of resentment. If these people really had the control they seem to believe Brexit would give them, as someone who doesn't share their views you'd have to be worried about your safety. There is something very sinister and threatening about some of these Brexiters, as we saw in the death threats the lady that set up the petition received.

Had The British people voted to remain ... how large would you require the margin to be before you considered your victory acceptable?

Im interested in the actual number of voters as an integer.

This is a simple question which requires a number in reply ... its not an opportunity to type a novel which nobody has the time to read.

Faraday
Brexiters not reading is exactly why we are in this pointless mess: ignorance of anything EU and no clue what they voted for. Margin? 60 vs 40 %.
