Over 700,000 people have petitioned Parliament to revoke Article 50. In such numbers the site was temporarily unavailable.

Worry not, though. It's now back up and if you wanna add your voice to the calls to revoke Article 50, here is the link:

Note the petition to leave the EU without a deal has only 371,000 people signed up. Maybe those lot don't know how to use computers

Our dear leader Theresa May made it quite clear last night that the people support her Brexit plan.

This must be fake news from the biased broadcast corporation.

Funny that you should call it fake news. The petition has been hijacked by tens of thousands of fake signatures from North Korea and Afghanistan. But you won't hear of that on the biased BBC...

Btw, to anyone who actually believes this, that list of countries are countries available in the drop-down list and you'll also find all MPs listed on there -- it's just the website's code. They're not indicative of the countries people are voting from.

(Oh, they are. Once again, Papa's not had his Shreddies.)

The 4 mil one led to the referendum in the first place. What are you even talking about?

Indeed, they're not generally listened to. But this is a unique time of political uncertainty and lack of leadership.

"tens of thousands of fake signatures from North Korea and Afghanistan."

You claim there are tens of thousands of signatures from North Korea and Afghanistan yet provide a link listing 1 signature from North Korea. There are three signatures from Afghanistan.

I'm not even going to bother to ridicule you, you are too easy a target.

Best of luck with your upcoming GCSE exams.
