Questions are being raised as to the true number of UK citizens signing a petition to urge another European Union membership referendum as evidence emerged that activists are encouraging foreign signatories. Some critics claim that a “bot” or “script” is being used to automatically generate names and signatories.
As of early Sunday afternoon, over 3.1 million signatures had been registered on the petition named: “EU Referendum Rules triggering a 2nd EU Referendum” which calls for the “Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60% based a turnout less than 75% there should be another referendum.”
But an analysis of the data on the petition shows that at least 6 per cent of the signatories, or nearly 200,000 are from foreign countries. While foreign-based UK nationals are allowed to sign UK petitions, some believe that many of these are fraudulent given that Remain activists are handing out post codes online in order to elicit more signatures from abroad.

Three MILLION plus ‘Remain’ PETITION Uses SCRIPT to FAKE Signatures
If you are interested in conspiracy theories, it could be that the Leave campaign is trying to derail the petition by pretending that they are faking signaturesLast edited by FriendlyPenguin; 26-06-2016 at 19:15.

More than 39,000 signatures have come from Vatican City.
Does anyone know the population of Vatican City?
