    Nope. 97% are in the UK. And the other 3% say they are British citizens living abroad.

    Yep you can break it down into constituencies, you can see it roughly follows the same levels as referendum (more signers in IN areas) - it all looks quite valid

    An election before signing is best...


    I mean with had TWO referendum, one for IN one for OUT, we need a third to clarify

    No. We didn't have a referendum before joining.

    Labour appear to be tooling up for Snap election.

    If they go for STAY manifesto I think they will win by MILES
    As someone who has voted Conservative and felt comfortable with doing so, I feel totally disillusioned by the party. For the first time in ever, I would consider voting Labour - but it would need someone like Benn at the helm. I will probably be a Lib Dem voter now.

    a new referendum now would be pointless

    however, once there has been an agreement on "leave" conditions (in, say, two years or so), these conditions should be put up to a referendum

    people should know what they are preparing for themselves if they leave the EU
    I cannot understand why no one thought of providing a proper plan for the people to vote on now. The Leave campaign did not expect to win and so did not bother wasting their time with a plan post-Brexit. People did not know what they were voting for. They knew what they were voting against, but not what they were voting for.

    What makes people think that the outcome would be any different? No matter how much I deplore the result and the moronic reasoning of Leavers, the fact is more of them showed up to vote for it and shows that the level of enthusiasm for staying was less than it was for going. That in itself is telling.

    Besides, the streets will be paved with gold now that there will be no Poles so why is anyone complaining?

    Following the UK's vote to leave the European Union, I've made this joint statement with the Archbishop of York John Sentamu:"On Thursday, millions of people from across the United Kingdom voted in the referendum, and a majority expressed a desire that Britain’s future is to be outside the European UnionThe outcome of this referendum has been determined by the people of this country. It is now the responsibility of the Government, with the support of Parliament, to take full account of the outcome of the referendum, and, in the light of this, decide upon the next steps. This morning, the Prime Minister David Cameron has offered a framework for when this process might formally begin.


    The vote to withdraw from the European Union means that now we must all reimagine both what it means to be the United Kingdom in an interdependent world and what values and virtues should shape and guide our relationships with others.As citizens of the United Kingdom, whatever our views during the referendum campaign, we must now unite in a common task to build a generous and forward looking country, contributing to human flourishing around the world. We must remain hospitable and compassionate, builders of bridges and not barriers. Many of those living among us and alongside us as neighbours, friends and work colleagues come from overseas and some will feel a deep sense of insecurity. We must respond by offering reassurance, by cherishing our wonderfully diverse society, and by affirming the unique contribution of each and every one.The referendum campaign has been vigorous and at times has caused hurt to those on one side or the other. We must therefore act with humility and courage – being true to the principles that make the very best of our nation. Unity, hope and generosity will enable us to overcome the period of transition that will now happen, and to emerge confident and successful. The opportunities and challenges that face us as a nation and as global citizens are too significant for us to settle for less.As those who hope and trust in the living God, let us pray for all our leaders, especially for Prime Minister David Cameron in his remaining months in office. We also pray for leaders across Europe, and around the world, as they face this dramatic change. Let us pray especially that we may go forward to build a good United Kingdom that, though relating to the rest of Europe in a new way will play its part amongst the nations in the pursuit of the common good throughout the world."

    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?
    We are not walking away from Europe We are walking away from the EU and its dictatorship ambitions If the EU wants to ditch its political ambitions then we can join. ITS THE EU that's leaving us by trying to take over Europe.

    It needs to be over a million nationwide and everyone else who voted Remain has to not have changed their mind as well. This is a subversion of the democratic process and I do not support it.

    One thing this petition does show is that if voting was electronic/internet based, younger people would turn out to vote in much larger numbers.

    We have a governmental system using yesterday's methods to impose a solution from yesterday on the country.

    If you didn't vote yet signed this petition, then you're scum tbf. If you can't be ****ed to vote until after the result doesn't go your way, you have absolutely no right to complain and are part of the problem.

    If you by-pass the simple democratic process you have nothing, nothing but chaos. The young adults making these silly petitions and statements need to understand that if they destroy democracy and succeed in this ONE decision, that subsequently it will mean EVERY vote ever taken and made could and would be equally subverted. When that happens later on they will be up in arms when that subversion changes a result they voted for to a result they didn't want.

    So 3 million is nothing? The difference between Leave and Remain was 1.3 million - was that nothing?

    And 3 million is nearly a fifth, which is a pretty significant amount don't you think. Oh, and it's still rising.

    3.5 million by tomorrow?

    Oh and whilst you are at it, please read everything you can on this website

    www.eutruth.org.uk

    which includes this:

    The EU is an unelected 3 tier dictatorship on the soviet model, with a sham parliament in Brussels. In time, that's slavery for all of us.

    The EU has bribed 28 Prime Ministers with £10 million per treaty to sign away their nations and their freedom. Ordinary Ministers get less. Its much cheaper than building weapons and going to war, as Adolf Hitler did. That is why all the establishment is wholly in favour of the EU.

    Edward Heath’s bribe was money laundered to him as a Nobel Peace Prize.
    Heath didn't get a Nobel Prize for Peace or anything else for that matter.

    Stopped reading.
