Mossback BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4132* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 21 Mar 19

A refresing bit of sanity reported in today's Guardian:

The UK government’s petitions website crashed on Thursday morning as thousands of people attempted to sign a plea for article 50 to be revoked.

The petition began gaining signatures on Wednesday evening after Theresa May criticised MPs for not approving her Brexit deal. It had received almost 600,000 signatures and was growing at a rate of 1,500 a minute before the site crashed.

The petition calls on the government to revoke article 50 and keep Britain in the EU, continuing: “The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is the will of the people. We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now for remaining in the EU. A people’s vote may not happen, so vote now.”

Surely, revocation would be a simple way out of your mess, but as a Yank, what do I know?
