Past the million mark now. I think the website just can't keep up with the rate of new signings, plus the people keeping pages open to watch the numbers rising.

We are heading for a complete and utter disaster. We were sold a pup and this has to be stopped. I’m happy to vote again, as long as the lies stop. If people still want a Brexit, based on actual facts rather than made up nonsense then I will respect that because there is no talking to people who bury their heads in the sand.

The largest number of people in this country that have ever voted decided we should leave. How can anyone think that we should have a second vote and the first vote should just be ignored. Is that democracy?
If there is to be a second vote then it should be on how we leave.

Don't worry Nancy, you're absolutely right. Fluppy by name, fluppy by nature eh ? Lewes is and always has been a bubble ! It only just voted to remain 52.1% which about the national margin to leave, so can hardly boast a victory !

You're quite right Nancy. Supporting this movement is accepting the end of democracy in this country, it is repudiating the will of the people, nothing less. A government that takes two years to come up with a deal so bad obviously had no intention of leaving the EU, not that we didn't know that anyway. The ones with their heads in the sand are those who cannot see fascism sneaking in through the back door. If you reject democracy you'd better be ready for the alternative. Are you?

Any project that has gone this wrong should be stopped whether one supports it or not. The scope for damage is just far to great. We may still want to leave but we must stop until we are ready and do it properly and safely. Article 50 will still be available next year.

'To an extent unparalleled in British political history, Brexit has ripped away the veneer of security that the managerial and professional classes enjoyed, throwing — in their mind at least — almost everything into question, from the U.K.’s place in the world to the future prosperity of their children. It is a threat that many find hard to cope with psychologically.
'It is also something many of them feel can be blamed on those over whom Britain’s educated professionals usually have day-to-day political, economic and social control — the working-class, provincial, poor and elderly who were over-represented among Leave voters.
'According to Corr and Stuart, this emotional response is “standard psychological stuff." To find solace and some level of security amid the disorder, Remainers are following a well-trodden path to polarized group think, dismissing their social "inferiors" who voted for Brexit as stupid, racist and easily misled.'

Talking of projects that have gone wrong,do you mean the EU? There's not a single firm that will sign off their accounts. That's a fact but would that bother you?

All you hear from leavers is about the "17.4m" and the will of the people. It's the tyranny of the minority in the context of the country having 66m people, and their European Union rights and citizenship removed because of a cynical Tory created referendum to silence their infighting and squabbling. Guess what? It backfired, on everyone.

I'm looking forward to either this whole brexit farce being stopped before it's too late, and failing that the campaign to reverse the damage. Lies about "taking back control" and blind, stubborn patriotism do not usually make for good policy, and brexit makes no logical sense given the consequences and the way the global modern economy works.

Reverse the damage? Which country has the highest employment? If you like to judge the way that global modern economics works then you'd better not study the EU too hard unless you are a fan of corruption and wastage.
Why not nip over to Paris this weekend and study the troops on the streets to prevent the rioting and torching of businesses.

@Pedro/ greensleeves. Of 66M. people, take out those who cannot vote. Then those who cannot be bothered to vote. 17.4 M. voted to LEAVE. Against 15M. or so remainers. Not a massive majority: but a democratic decision that the Government have to respect. (a record turnout, by the way).
The demonstrations today by the bad loses and brainwashed will have no affect whatsoever on the outcome. We are going to LEAVE. Unfortunately not next Friday.

I'd be interested to at least see how and where another vote with all the 3 years additional knowledge would lead. If they still choose to leave then so be it. The warnings were there.

No deal was not on the original ballot, neither was Mays deal. I wonder how popular either actually are. I suspect not very.

Stop press. Remainers win second referendum by small majority. Leavers demand third referendum...... Repeat to the limit of your sanity threshold.

And if the Remain camp was convicted of criminal overspending as the Leavers were, that would be fair. But an illegally conducted non-binding referendum is valueless and especially when the polls, petitiions and marches shows the public mood is now against Brexit. If the leaders of any thrid world country insisted on railroading it through under those conditions, we'de deride it as a banana republic. Which is how most of the world sees us now. Brexit is shaming our country and that is something that will take a long time to forgive, whatever the outcome.

Overspending by the leave campaign is nothing, compared to the action of the Government sending every household a booklet urging us to vote remain.
And we still voted to leave.

Most leavers are guarded about openly expressing it. They know they will lose friends and be called bigots,racists etc. Because of this the remainers are convinced they have won public opinion.

David Stanley that’s just not true. I have friends who voted leave, though they mostly regret it now. I would never call them racists or bigots, they actually weren’t given the full facts and this was also more of a protest vote on their part. These people are still my friends and that won’t change.

Not only that Jim, there was the massive remain propaganda on the BBC. Ed may well be right but did the voters from the other side refuse to accept it and demand another election? As for the lies, both sides were at it. Anyone knows that lies or unsubstantiated wishful thinking are the currency of the truth economy of politicians. Brexit was a Whitehall farce from the beginning. Let's hope it wakes people up to what a mendacious bunch of quislings haunt the House of parliament.
