    That isn't exactly what I meant. Technically, it wasn't even a crash, it was a "dip".
    Lol

    Why Brexit lost :

    We now have three choices:

    a) REMAIN
    b) become an EU colony (same immigration, not veto, no say, just do as EU says)
    c) Go Broke or at best significantly poorer,

    Sign the petition, of course not to get a rerun of the referendum but to show your feelings on the matter.
    You are going over a waterfall in a boat that you all agreed to sail together.
    The boat does not work. If you stay in it you probably commit economic suicide.

    Its not whining to change your mind and save youself.

    Get a grip man, this is not some silly macho game - this is economic life or death.

    Jeremy Hunt has just been on BBC Breakfast saying a 2nd Referendum or General Election is needed to give a final confirmation *after* Article 50 negotiations are completed.

    Sounds like a very sensible idea (and one I predicted ).

    You may have heard there is a petition calling for a 2nd Referendum.

    It's so popular it's been crashing the gov site

    [/b]

    Edit to add: Over 4 million signatures.
    This is now the most signed UK petition ever. By far.

    96% of signatories are in the UK. The rest are UK citizens living abroad.

    If you have, or are planning to, sign the petition I suggest you also contact your MP telling them you have done so and asking them to request a 2nd Referendum.

    My lotto numbers didn't show up on Saturday, so I lost. Should I create a petition for a redraw?

    The UK would have already left at that time.

    Jeremy Hunt also thinks we'll be able to negotiate free movement of everything but persons.

    If people really wanted this they would have voted UKIP
    The reason we are in this mess is becaue people switched to Tory over Tuition Fee row without thinking to deeply about the ticking bomb of referendum

    We need a petition to stop political parties putting VAGUE referendum pledges in their manifestos without having any clarity as to whether they are in favour of a specific outcome. People need to know what they are voting for.

    Haha it's funny because people say 'let's have a petition for x because I don't like x' because someone did one for the EU referendum

    If Britain fails to implement it over the next two-three years that is exactly what will happen, in huge numbers.

    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.
    :ditto:Also If there was 2nd referendum, then what was the whole point of the 1st one, those who actually voted?

    UKIP had the 3rd largest vote share behind the 2 main parties.

    It had more votes than the 3rd+4th by MPs parties had combined.

    Well here's a surprise... Remainers who don't understand democracy...
    The petition was started by a guy who backed Leave.

    Instead of attacking people, you should try having a go at the argument itself. You'll boost your ostensible intelligence.

    The petition was started BEFORE the vote because the person in question believed the vote was rigged. The very same person has asked for it to be taken down.

    You are a big boy or a big girl but big boy/girl did not do his/her research
