    The spurious votes where deleted from the Ref2 poll so the final total is largely correct. I imagine the parliamentary committee in charge of petitions has been keeping a rather close eye on this one.

    There's no evidence yet of any significant problems with it.

    And how long did it take for the duplication to come to light and be acted upon? Was certainly several days before the reports were widespread and several more before the Vatican stopped having tens of thousands of signatories. Oh, and if you want evidence of duplication it's that I've seen the signatory total 5-10% higher than it currently is, which suggests maybe a couple of hundred thousand names were wiped off the list.

    It's actually quite noteworthy in this petition how much support for it there is spread across a wide swathe of home county areas - clearly many southern middle class and white people are supporting it.
    It's quite noteworthy how London centric it is. This "wide swathe of support" is only 2% give or take compared to pushing 10 in parts of London, Bristol, Brighton and the likes.

    It's also noteworthy that as much as we have 2m people having another cry there is not the popular support for it:

    Donald Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom should...
    Go ahead: 49%
    Be cancelled: 36%
