    No. The JSON simply hasn't updated properly for ages.

    I suspect they turned off the updates to reduce the load on the server - or it's just plain broken. The host server is struggling to keep up with the level of interest in this petition. It's 4x bigger (and in a MUCH shorter time period) than the next biggest petition.

    In situations like this it's generally better to go with incompetance rather than conspiracy.

    Hold on - Ive just rechecked it and it's now updated. Give me a sec and I'll do an analysis.

    In the meantime: 2.4 million for UK out of 2,492,756
    {"name":"United Kingdom","code":"GB","signature_ count":2401768}

    Happy...?

    Cant ait to see George Osbournes emergency budget and Camerons predictions all come true. Even know the establishment commentators are saying the pound and stock market have crashed and the economy is burning. The Leave side were tarred as thick old ignorant racists while the remain side infiltrated schools with pretty pictures and lies about how the EU kept the peace and helped everyone Those young people are the ones throwing eggs at the elderly because they were brainwashed by the EU Seriously sad

    wtf are you talking about Read some of your posts back and get over it. Remain lost most likely down to your tarring feathering and lies about what would happen of e left. The leave campaign were not old racist thick little Englanders Most of the leavers voted against the removal of democracy and the land and power grab Most of the remainers were brainwashed benefitted or couldn't care less. There is an argument to be had that the poor in this country are left to rot by a lot of the remain side. This time though the poor and downtrodden stuck up for democracy and freedom Just like they have done over the centuries they are not the wtf's you think they are.

    This is very interesting :

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...Number-10.html

    Ill quote from the Dailymail : 'A Mail on Sunday poll showed seven per cent of those who voted Leave, equal to more than one million people, now regret having done so. Four per cent of Remain voters also regretted their decision'

    Which implies that the result if those who regretted their vote switch sides would be 51-49 for remain, which could easily be in the margin of error for leave and also doesn't even consider post referendum doubts of remaining, that usually occur more pervasively when the status-quo wins.

    You don't need a second referendum........because the current government will never enact article 50.

    This is just a threat to the EU

    If that's true it's showing no signs of working. Juncker et al have already come out and declared that there will be no renegotiation, and appear to be trying to force the government's hand into activating it as soon as possible.

    Funny how the polls always put remain in the lead

    Almost 3m now. At what point does Parliament start to take seriously the huge discontent that sleepwalking out of our international way of life on the basis of a wafer thin vote is inevitably provoking?

    Is there any check on the petition (e.g. entering passport no.), or is it something anyone with an email can sign? :confused:

    Not so people are doing what I did.

    Emailing their MP (the software tells you who is your nearest MP via IP link). Then explain why you petitioned in a line or two and give your name and address

    Keep on fighting to the end!

    Yep, and lots of kids too. You just put a valid postcode in. There's probably around 600,000 genuine signatures.

    More interviews on news sites in from around the country on why people voted Leave.

    In Sheffield, the BBC interviewed numerous working class people, for example, market traders. The consensus was that they hadn't expected a Leave vote to actually mean leave would happen.

    Ebbw Vale voted Leave (despite having the biggest EU regional aid in the country) mainly (according to the Guardian this morning) because "we don't like the government". As in many other working class areas, the vote was wrongly seen as a referendum on Cameron and Osborne. The people in these areas who voted Leave are going to find out soon that the alternatives are much, much worse.

    In parts of the Home Counties, according to reports on Radio 4 yesterday, voters thought we were under direct rule from Brussels. "We got rid of the Germans controlling our taxes", was one comment. Voters in many areas with no immigrant presence said that immigration was their chief concern. UKIP has clearly officialised racism and made it broadly acceptable, especially in traditional Tory and rural areas.

    Some Leave voters in Manchester, according to the Manchester Evening News, did not in some cases realise we were voting to leave Europe, they thought the vote was something to do with the football according to one report.

    Democracy is not a mouldable lump of clay that suits individual preferences; one cannot refute a democratic mandate, just as one cannot refute a test confirming HIV. Democratic mandates should be as immovable as mountains, else people’s cries become the sways of grass in a gale.
