    If you count all of the individual country counts, it only sums to ~400000-420000. So...

    Even if the count in the .json is wrong, you still need to surpass 17.4 million signatures for the petition to be any more than butthurt remain voters whining

    Wrong. JSON isn't up to date. Sum the countries... nowhere near the total number of signatories.

    See my edited post above.

    It was very stupid of them not to vote. I don't think they expected so many knuckle draggers to vote. Once again the old people have ruined it for the generations following them. Maybe not a reason for a re-vote, but it is certainly frustrating for someone who voted to stay, knowing the true majority wanted the same.

    what's done is done and I doubt there will be a 2nd referendum. Though looks like a a lot of the big banks are getting worried tbh. And without an economy essentially reliant on London, the UK could be utterly screwed. Can only be a good thing for the second and only big English speaking city in Europe, that being Dublin.
    Dublin and Frankfurt gain in the long run but an independent UK is far more likely to make London a tax haven than chase the rich away. We'll be fine whether in London or Leeds.

    Seems a bit pointless in all honesty, because the EU has already said that once we are out there's no going back.

    I am Scottish and Scotland voted to remain so why should Scotland and Ireland have to leave when it´s England and Wales that want to leave...just because they are countries with smaller populations and obviously add up to less votes they are being made do what another counrty wants.

    No it is not discrimination. I am not asking for old people not to get a vote, they have every right. But to say an 18 year old is sensible but a 17year old is not is ridiculous.

    I don't care what the EU has or has not done for the UK. The vote was won by xenophobes and idiots. Hearing them gloat makes be laugh as they talk absolutely no sense at all, they have no idea what they have gotten themselves into. Those idiots up who voted leave in the working class communities have just condemned themselves to more unemployment and poor investment, the Brexit torries owe their victory to them and will they repay them? haha, no, they will be doomed to a tory government with no leash, they are going to have a field day. Good bye steel industry, good bye investment, good bye jobs etc etc. Hey, at least the fishing indsutry will have no more restrictive laws, now the fishermen can fish whatever they want, that will workout just fine.
    Your attitude of name calling and fear is exactly why the remain camp lost
