The woman who started the record-breaking anti-Brexit petition says she is "shaking like a leaf" after receiving three death threats by phone.

 

Margaret Georgiadou, 77, began the Revoke Article 50 petition, which had topped four million signatures by Saturday morning.

 

She said she was "totally amazed" it had become the most popular petition submitted to the Parliament website.

 

But Mrs Georgiadou said the "horrible" phone calls left her scared and angry.

 

The retired lecturer says she has also received abuse via her Facebook account.

 

She said: "I feel terrible, I feel angry with myself because I thought I was tougher than that. But I was scared."

 

"I haven't even told my husband because he is very old and he would become hysterical."

 

Mrs Georgiadou said she created the petition to stop people "moaning" about how awful they thought Brexit was going to be.

 

 

Disgusting.

How did people get her phone number? How did anyone know she started it? 

Who recommended she publish her identity on twitter after the death threats?

I'm flabbergasted!

 

It's 4.5 million now by the way 👍

So much denial in one small post. It must be a record.

@dj here we go again, why the hell would a decent women lie about this.
Going on your comments as a brexiteer, well some of the more hard line ones may very well threaten people.

All the violence seems to be coming from pro-Brexitears yet Remainers are the problem. Smiley Frustrated

It's certainly easier and more comforting to dismiss a story like this as fake, but that's because Brexiteers are happiest when avoiding the uncomfortable truth.

 

I suspect they'd all be singing a different tune if a Brexitear had been threatened.
