    It's probably more than that.

    the 17.4m that voted to leave only represented 3/4 of the population - you really need 23.3m to actually achieve a vote to overturn the previous result...

    I've heard Mrs May has asked to extend the deadline on this petition.

    Me too, I was on the losing side, that's what democracy is all about, absolutely shameful the way some people are trying to reinvent democracy.

    What's absolutely shameful is the way Theresa May is running the country.

    I agree with you 100%. I am the same.
    We voted in a referendum. It is binding on the politicians.
    they have a duty to deliver.

    On normal bills and things each MP can vote as he sees fit, but with a referendum he doesn't. Anyone in parliament attempting to stop it should be removed for obstructing the will of the people.

    How would another vote be less democratic? Even if someone voted leave they didn’t vote for this mess, unless they were a disaster capitalist.

    Every side of the vote must be pissed off, we are all going to clearly be poorer and ruled by the worst Tory government we’ve ever had perpetually.

    No. a referendum is a single vote on a single issue and those signed up to it agree to abide by the outcome. Politicians trying to stop us leaving are in contempt of the voters.

    It would be like the EU telling Ireland to vote again when the voted against something to do with the euro (I think). They said vote again and then a top EU bureaucrat said, "And they will have to keep voting until they get the right result."
    Is that what you want?

    It was an advisory referendum, if it was mandatory the ECJ would have ruled it invalid due to the interference in the leave campaign. I don't want a 2nd ref, I don't think it's helpful and will divide the country even more but if it's no deal or 2nd ref, I'm all for it. Let's just take Norway Plus and be done with it.

    The Referendum was not legally binding. More’s the pity because if it had been it would have been ruled as unsafe due to the illegal activities of the Leave campaign.

    Especially being that enough of those who voted leave have died of old age and enough young people who it actually will affect for the rest of their lives have come of voting age to completely overturn the result

    So they have another referendum and the remainers succeed; what’s stopping the leavers demanding another one to make it best out of three

    If May calls a general election and Labour wins, the Tories should stay in government for another three years and then call another election.

    Is that what you want?
    I work in project management, and for any project you always reappraise the case for doing it at each major juncture.
    Things change, more information becomes available, other opportunities arise.

    Can all the people who are desperate to leave in this thread please tell me why? What do they think the benefits are?

    Nothing - they've been doing that since the 70s

    Which socialist party? The Marxist one under Corbyn or the proposed moderate one under Watson

    Either one I’m packing my bags

    It should just be revoked, the government can then work on a Brexit that is acceptable and then put that forward in another referendum, people can then vote on what they know are the options.
