Imagine if someone with money wanted to rig a petition.
This is a claim, of course, not verified. It may be true, and their description is plausible, but it is still just a claim at the moment. With their stated support for Brexit, they have a vested interest in discrediting the petition, so they have the motivation to make a claim of this sort.

Will it be investigated ? - Think not more likely to just be ignored.

Probably not, but it will no doubt be referenced by some with pro-Brexit leanings.

What does that say about 'the Will of the People' in that constituency?

Re: The power of technology

A 37.1% turnout says a lot about what people think of UK politics at the moment. Can anyone in all seriousness vote for either of the two major parties?

It has been said that to not vote is to side with the winners!

Exactly!

I’ll probably draw my own box and write ‘None of the above’ next to it.

This whole clusterfeck has shown that the current lot of so called politicians should all be thoroughly ashamed of themselves for their behavior over this.
The fact that it wasn’t until Mar 29th (Feb 57th if you’re Diane Abbot) that the two main parties decided it might be an idea to get together to talk about it FFS!!
Still, they will be the ones walking away with a phenomenal pension at our expense.

I know! You couldn’t really make that up could you! Oh, the irony. Still, again, who’s the joke on, certainly not him.
