I thought I heard on tv today that MP’s would only look at it if the petition went past 17 million 😉

Back on topic, if it's passed 1 million signatures doesn't that indicate that the general view has now changed and the result would probably be somewhat different now?

It certainly seems to imply that. I'm no statistician. I'm keen to know what our experts think it means.


@andishdi  you got any ideas what this means, as in statistical terms it must have some meaning, don't you think?

... what does it mean? 





Thats over 5 million votes in a matter of a few days.


No interference from Lobby groups, or from the press, or politicians posing in front of big red buses, no money pumped in from so-called businessmen.


And, as we are so frequently told, "democracy is all about The Will Of The People ... "


What if the Will Of The People has changed since the referendum?

Not repealing article 50 would be madness at this stage.
Parliament is paralyzed and can't agree on anything at all.

I rarely sign these things, but I did this one. I'd like someone to start a petition to crash out with no deal and a third crash out with May's Deal and use the results as some sort of leverage for the government to do "The Will Of The People"

Hi @extreme_one

What about your experts Oxford economics.

As you said they are experts, they were so correct about windows mobile becoming the the dominant operating system for phones and tablets.

You hardly see anyone using a Android phone or iPhone these days.

The petition has now passed 2 million signatures and still rising.

Let's change the atmosphere around the Brexit conversation. Sign the petition. Join the march in London on Saturday, Hyde Park to Parliament. Meet Park Lane midday.

Hi @extreme_one 

Firstly I am not trolling.

You are asking who Oxford economics are, they are the experts statisticians you said so yourself.

And, over their lifetimes, they pay in £78,000 more than they take out in public services and benefits - while the average UK citizen’s net lifetime contribution is zero.


Oxford Economics, which carried out the assessment, said this meant the value of EU citizens to the economy was the equivalent of slapping 5p on income tax rates.



So cutting migration would mean we all have to pay moretax. Brilliant!



However, I'm sure someonewill soon come along to criticise Oxford Economics because their mate Trevor, a builder, says the opposite and, in fact ... blah, blah ...
