This is true, I've seen other posts showing bots are posting from all over - no idea if they are true but it is making a mockery of western democracy - it needs to be tackled.

Anyway, I signed so one legit vote.

Security experts are saying it’s unlikely to be bots due to the email confirmation required.

12 hours on and another half million people have signed.

I was one of them - not that I think that it will change anything if I do...

Just tried to sign this. The confirmation email with the link went to the Junk folder, so I guess that might say something. ???

It's interesting to look at the petition vote map, to see some big differences. I guess you should expect that, but if you look at some areas of Birmingham, only a little over 1% of the constituents have signed, but if you look at South Cambridgeshire, almost one eighth of the constituents have already signed the petition!

In reality, those figures are flawed, because as far as I can tell, there is nothing in the petition that checks whether you are actually an eligible voter in the region that you quote as your home. But nevertheless, the numbers of people signing are quite large...

I signed it, somewhat reluctantly as I don't believe the government should simply revoke article 50 without a public vote, but then again I don't think that's really the intention. The idea is to force the debate and increase the pressure on the government. If you're skeptical about the figures, let's see how todays march compares to Nige's when his band of bigots get to Westminster.

I voted remain. I believe in democracy so I was prepared to respect the outcome but the government have made such an unimaginable cock up of the whole thing, I don't know what to think any more. The thought of a no deal Brexit is deeply concerning and should be avoided at any cost. I'd like us to remain but am worried about the fallout, the rise of far right, the increasing division, the subject never going away. Not that we should just leave out of fear of that, but I don't trust this government to deal with it. They lit the fuse.

One thing is for sure, May needs to go now. Arguably the worst prime minister in British history.

I try to stay politically neutral and be in favour of equality, however I have suffered under a female prime minister when I was in the mining industry (remember industry? When England had them) and now a prime minister who looks to be moving towards a complete breakup of the UK; driving Scotland further towards independence and abandoning NI to Europe.
Not to mention the benefits squeeze (ATOS for goodness' sake and my assessments as fit for work!).
It is so hard to keep neutral.

As soon as the 'meaningful parliament vote' was added at the start of the process the whole thing was doomed - you can't please everyone and months of negotiations mean nothing. Was implementing the 'meaningful vote' the correct thing to do? I'm not sure. It was asking MP 'do you want more power?', of course they are going to say yes.

Fortunately I'm in a position where I have friends in both camps and it could be tricky times ahead. I hear 3 views at the moment:

1. Staunch remainers who are buoyed by the delays in the process and are being given a glimmer of hope that the whole thing might go away.
2. People who voted remain but said we should respect the outcome of the referendum. Some of these are often business people who are trying to plan for all the different outcomes and are quite frankly pulling their hair out at the moment.
3. Staunch leavers, some of whom are threatening never to vote in an any elections again if we don't leave.

Interesting times :o
