From!!!

Theworldisfullofgs Thu 21-Mar-19 06:40:38

Signed. Gone up 20000 in last hour.

SovietKitsch Thu 21-Mar-19 06:40:43

390k + now. Got to try something

I certainly won't be signing it.
The person who has created that petition is bang out of order, not to put too finer point on it. The vote was to leave the EU. Who is she to try to get that decision over turned.
Now don't get me wrong.
I wouldn't mind if someone started a petition to ask Parliament for second referendum, but not to just get rid of Article 50 because she doesn't like it.

The illegally obtained, non-binding, advisory* vote was to leave the EU.*

Fixed that for you.

JenniferJareau Thu 21-Mar-19 06:50:27

YABU.

There is a Brexit board, please use it.

SovietKitsch Thu 21-Mar-19 06:50:29

As is your democratic right Awwlookatmybabyspider

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 21-Mar-19 06:52:18

I swear some people, 8 days before the Second World War, would be saying, "there's a Germany Board, please use it".

RJnomore1 Thu 21-Mar-19 06:53:52

Signed.

Bouchie Thu 21-Mar-19 06:55:43

Signed. The good thing about democracy is that you can vote again, otherwise surely the referendum in the 1970s would hold forever and we would be a one party state.

RickOShay Thu 21-Mar-19 06:56:06

I have signed. All fur coat and no knickers is Brexit.

RickOShay Thu 21-Mar-19 06:56:49

grin MrsTerry you are right!

Maybe we should all start a petition after every general election where the “wrong” party ends up in charge.

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 21-Mar-19 07:07:07

If the GE was illegally funded and advisory, we probably should.

SovietKitsch Thu 21-Mar-19 07:09:14

We’d nearly be at the next GE after this time MrsExpo democracy isn’t fixed and immutable

SovietKitsch Thu 21-Mar-19 07:09:42

We’re also at a bloody crisis point, all options need to be considered

boredboredboredboredbored Thu 21-Mar-19 07:12:39

Signed.

Sparklingbrook Thu 21-Mar-19 07:13:29

There's a topic for this

EstrellaDamn Thu 21-Mar-19 07:15:40

Signed. It's sadly pointless but what else is there to do? <despairs>

Serin Thu 21-Mar-19 07:16:18

I am totally for remaining in the EU but I dont see how this is democracy?
The vote was to leave.
It's a farce worthy of Fawlty Towers.

SovietKitsch Thu 21-Mar-19 07:16:32

With 8 days to go, Sparklingbrook it needs to be in places where people who want to sign it, will see it. Now is not the time for specific boards - Brexit is not a specialist subject, it will affect us all.
