Plenty more for the proper vote, this is tiny in comparison.

We'll see how it goes. I must admit I groaned a little when I first saw this thread, thank you Andrew!

I was going to ask if this was a People's Vote or a Meaningful Vote, but thought better of it.

More likely a fake vote or fake news, manipulated by the FBI or the Russians

The site is down again anyway so not of any real importance.
