Parliament takes axe to 2nd EU referendum petition

TJ 2

On the day of the referendum, there were 24 signatures on the petition.

On the day of the referendum, there were 24 signatures on the petition.

SO, going on the fact that you can't change the goal posts after the vote, 17million voted to leave, 24 petitioned (against the vote system)... 24 out of 33 total million voters,

That doesn't meet the 100k to have it duscussed, every name added after the vote should be void.

Will you get a 2nd referendum?

You have more chance of visiting Mars for a spot of sunbathing....

But, it is entertaining, twatter and farcebook are full of poor little bunnies crying foul, bleeting on about how they have been robbed by a democratic vote.

More so by the chubby meme generation, yes, those millenials, who think for some reason that this vote will stop them visiting Europe, or that somehow they wont be able to leave this country and work abroad.... when most of them can't even get their chubby faces out of their phone....

Middle classes, wealthy, celebs and toffs bellowing "the unwashed plebs voted us out" how dare they!

Yes, sorry your holiday will cost you a few quid more.... better cut back on the port and cheese this month eh?

If the country does suffer, it wont be you that suffers, it will be the poorest in society. The ones who wake up every day with real financial dilemmas like walk to work or put some money in the electric/gas meter to have a hot shower and a cup of tea....

All this, and we're not even one week into the post-vote fallout.

If you do manage to somehow conjure up a 2nd referendum... expect a 3rd... a 4th ... a 5th.... and then civil war.
