    ...you know you could just go on the website, get the JSON, convert to CSV and use excell to count it up - then realise numbers fine and consider that during the afternoon when it wasn't, it was quite likely just the number of people signing meant real time updating of JSON was too server intensive so was removed for batch updates?

    You're quite right. The JSON shows 2539449 and the number on the website is 2767528. The petition is missing more than 200000 votes.

    Just like that Ban Trump poll where you had a few people signing thousands of times these things are not worth the hard drive they are stored upon.

    They won't have really lost. It'll be because David Cameron and George Osborne sat up all night rubbing out all the votes for leaving. #UsePens

    What a joke.


    Now you're doing the same **** about Boris??!!

    Meanwhile, a German journalist claims to have signed the petition to prove it can be manipulated.Lorenz Hemicker ‏tweeted: “Are you British? Sure! Voting for a 2nd #Brexit-Referendum takes only 30 seconds. Even for a German journalist.”

    All you need is an email and you can put down a false name. If you made multiple email accounts it would be easy :lol:

    I'm still taking the piss out of leave voters. How would Boris be rubbing out the signatures on an online petition????

    About 70000 out of 3 million votes have been found to be fraudulent, and they could even be the result of leave voters trying to discredit the petition.

    It puts out the same number that is on the website +/- a few hundred, as the starting post says it Typically does. With
    South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands - 1
    Vatican City - 58

    Exactly, that is the point, the same point that a few posts ago you were disputing.

    Asking for the source != disputing something :rolleyes:

    You also seem unable to comprehend the massive picture pointing out false votes that I embedded "a few posts ago." :facepalm:

    So why did you doubt it in the first place?

    Also, the left often do this with online votes, you saw it with the Trump petition (which was signed multiple times per person and by people outside of the UK), and even The Daily Mail comments section, where the left sometimes hi-jack the ratings where the most disliked comment magically gains 10,000 likes over the space of 5 seconds.

    Unfortunately our pathetic media are rather naïve about this (although they are slowly learning).

    Asking for the source != "disputing" either. Nobody is going to copy & paste all the text from an article on here. :lol:

    Yeah, this image is doing the rounds on Twitter. Apparently the original account got deleted.

    Even the Guardian is owning up though
