For an interesting comparison, the Brexit petition in favour of proroguing parliament managed to collect 304 signatures.

It is one of the flaws in democracy that people who are happy with the way things are tend not to feel the need to do anything about it. This is what happened in the now stale 2016 referendum, when all the polls had remain odds on to win, many didn't bother to vote and so the nutters ran away with it.
