    No idea. 30,000 people are petitioning for it. (A separate petition to this one).

    I voted remain and even though I applaud this petition for its efforts, I doubt it will change a thing. If a second referendum does come in to play, it will only cause further uproar and commotion amongst those who voted to leave.
    Leave has won, and we have to respect that vote even if we don't agree with it. Right now, as a country we need to bridge the divide we have amongst people and only work towards a better future for this country, and still have good relations with the EU and the rest of the world.
    This however seems to be overwhelmingly uncertain.

    145.000 so far, wish it was at least 16 million..... :smug:

    Hope we get a 2nd as said it's so so close. Like leadership votes when too close, a 2nd vote is done so should we be allowed on a referendum!

    I voted remain, however i think there shouldn't be a second referendum. And it should remain as it is, to teach people a lesson, about taking voting seriously (just like the person above has said).
    Why didn't people vote seriously, because they voted different to your views or some other reason?

    I voted Remain but I think this petition is pointless. Leave won fair and square - let this be a lesson for people (in general) to take referendums and elections seriously and actually vote. Hopefully it sinks in by the time the next general election is upon us and we don't destroy this country any further.
    I doubt there'll be another referendum but I think it is a good way to show that people aren't pleased with the result. It weakens the mandate of Brexit. It's one of those things that unlikely to lead anywhere but that's worth a try anyways.

    Also most MPs don't want to leave the EU so they might try push for another referendum with the support of the people.

    The people have spoken and they're divided. Leave won by a margin of 4%. Although 51.9% of the UK voting population want to leave the EU, you have to remember 48.1% don't. The margins are far too close for you to say 'the people have spoken'. The 'people' aren't united into one body.

    Huh??? I was just passing there and ended up reading all of this :boing:, there is a big debate

    Btw, i do agree that the difference is really small but with the 3 million immigrants (who want the uk to stay), the difference is big with more wanting to remain

    Why is it that immigrants cant vote? They still live in the UK and most of them, if not all, will continue living here? So... Why??

    The same reason prisoners cant vote on prison laws (Funnily enough the ECHR told us its against their human rights)

    It isn't enough to justify leaving and also many voters were duped by false claims, like the 350m saving, which the Leave leaders now admit was false.

    Exactly. Some leavers even signed that petition after realising the lies and false promises. My uncle voted for us to leave but after seeing the results he signed the petition for a second referendum/. So leavers, it's not all remainers signing the petition.

    At the moment we have over 500,000 signatures for the petition.
    By the deadline- 25th November 2016 we should have over one million signatures meaning which strongly bypasses the number of signatures needed (100,000)

    A democratic majority in a free and fair election is not enough to justify leaving? Absurd.

    People are not stupid, no matter how much you may like to think. They vote the way which is right for them and no amount of virtue signaling will change that. Saying the people were "duped" and couldn't decide what was best for themselves is frankly retarded.

    Politicians did not decide to leave the EU, the people did.
