    Just as the referendum has not been approved by government yet. Yes.
    If you are referring to the petition calling for a second Brexit referendum, that is all done and dusted. There was a debate; there was no vote; there was never going to be a vote; there was certainly never going to be a second referendum.

    This petition, that has still found only sixteen people dim enough to think it sensible to support it, will go nowhere: it is asking for something that really is impossible.

    Dude, for reference, I voted Remain. And I promoted the 2nd Ref Petition on TSR.

    But the government has accepted the EUref result, they just haven't activated A50 yet. Indeed they may never activate it, but that's a separate topic.

    It is simply misleading to say your petition is "now approved by government". If you are doing this deliberately you are continuing the tactic of using disingenous misinformation that has been an unfortunate signature of the whole EU ref campaign on both sides. If so please stop.

    If it's an error of understanding then just remove the phrase from the thread title, and move on.

    Why does your thread title mean "now approved by government"?

    The gov has to approve a petition to be a petition,
    No. It's a "parliamentary committee" not "government". Parliament is not government. This is a key error in your understanding of British constitutional law.

    Dude you are correct, but by your other posts I felt I had to dumb it down.

    I know the first was advisory. I have said that many times. I also said the 2nd Ref petition was rather flawed.

    Seems to be a common problem...

    It WILL be debated in Parliament if it is signed and not boycotted by people who are peeved that someone had the gumption to try to do something.
    No they will consider it for debate if it reaches 100k signatures, they can still reject it for debate no matter how many people sign it.

    There's a difference between boycotting something and not taking it seriously.

    What is the difference? The entire Brexit process is going to be about complicated grey areas, rights for some but not others, temporary quotas that can not be imposed realistically. And I am unrealistic? Instead of making comstructive suggestions and having an intelligent debate, this thread has mean spirited killjoys who will not engage in a legal discourse on the matter.

    If Parliament had voted on it it would be on the front page not this TSR thread.
    You get one line at the top of a message board.

    Not that petition, which was entirely unnessary.
