Well as we reported earlier the petition for a second referendum was a fake, initially setup prior to the referendum ironically by Leave campaigner in case the result was not to his liking, the petition has gained over 3.5 million signatures but is currently being investigated for fraud, with over 77000 signatures already removed, over 30000 signatures coming from the Vatican which has a population of 800 and hackers claiming they used ‘bots’ to sign the petition as a prank.
This petition of course has raised hopes for many people that maybe a second referendum could take place. David Cameron has made it clear that a second referendum is out of the question but since he’s resigning anyway it seems it’s not entirely out of the question, especially now we have many high profile political figures and entrepreneur’s stamping their little feet like young spoilt children ganging up to plot to block the EU Exit.

Regardless of whether you voted to Remain or Leave the EU the notion of second referendum is ludicrous and an insult to democracy, at what point do you accept the results?
If a second referendum returned a Remain majority should we call for a third referendum, then a fourth?
It’s understandable many people are angry about the results, the fear driven campaigning by both sides was enough to place the fear of god into just about anyone but what people need to understand is that the intention was just that – to use fear of what ‘could’ happen if you leave or stay. It was all political theoretical claptrap designed to get your vote.
If you want instability and civil unrest then a second referendum will give you just that – but then again maybe that was the plan from the beginning, what better way to control a nation then by dividing them further.
