There’s a petition supposedly going around for a redo of the ‘Brexit’ vote and it says that they have received 1.5 million signatures.
According to this, a good number of those signatures aren’t even of people who live in Britain. Some of them don’t even live in Europe. In fact, 2,800 are from areas in Antarctica.
The ‘Remain’ side is desperate and mad about losing to the point that some are on Twitter asking for people outside the UK to sign the petition – they even give you a post code that you can use in order to “prove” you live in the UK.

That’s not even the worst part. There are automated bots that are being used to create signatures for the petition. This explains how there are over 2,000 signatures coming from places where roughly a couple of hundred people live.
As of Sunday afternoon, around 41,118 signatories have come from Vatican City, 11,717 from the United States, and curiously, 24,855 from North Korea.
At least 19,000 signatures have come from France, and 2,735 from British Antarctic Territory, which has a population of just 250 people.
And even UK-based signatories are raising questions, with the petition attracting a curiously high number of signatures from constituencies with small populations.
Turnout in the 2015 General Election was 36,185 in the Cities of London and Westminster constituency. Yet over 40,000 are claimed to have signed the Remain petition from that constituency in the past few days. That would mean that more than every single person that voted in 2015 has signed the petition, including all voters from the UK Independence Party and the Conservative Party, the former of which is overwhelmingly Eurosceptic, and the latter of which is split in half over the issue.
This shows how desperate activists can get when things don’t go their way. Not only that, but they are disenfranchising the 52% of people that say they want to leave.
