The best bit was when in the comments they wen't "ah, this was hijacked, so look at this twitter poll that gave us the results we wanted, that is the true result"

I don't want corporation tax increased, but by taxing revenues (not profit) will make companies like facebook (which will not want to stop operating here as they will simply lose that profit) pay a fair amount of tax.
In 2016, they had revenues of £842m in the UK but only paid £5.1 in tax. By the way, this shouldn't apply to medium and small businesses.

You didn't understand the point. They have already left, and based themselves overseas to pay minimal tax while making profit from our consumers.
This can't be fair to place the tax burden on those without clever accounting, so if they don't cooperate with the revenue tax they would lose the right to operate (and make profit) here.
Tax will not change for most companies.
