Parliament takes axe to 2nd EU referendum petition

If you wanted to poison the well

If the side you backed got the result you wanted, but by such a narrow margin that it could be challenged by a petition created by one of your own as a contingency but hikacked by the other side, what would you do? A ddos would be too obvious and a counter-petition might not garner enough support. But if you flood the petition with fake/ineligible support, you can discredit the whole thing as fraudulent.
