    Oh yeah like there are no far left nutters using death threats to intimidate people.
    Are you saying that all brexiteers are right wing? Yet Jeremy Corbyn is not against Brexit. Doesn't make sense, but because she is receiving death threats they can only come from the far right. Not that I don't think they are.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    If you're talking about Luciana Berger, she's only had death threats from right wing nutters. Three neo Nazis have been jailed for doing so. In addition, one Left wingnutter called her a c***, for which he was jailed, the other left wing nutter said he hated Jews, for which he was also jailed. Neither left wing nutters abuse involved death threats.

    Out a population of 62 million and only just over 4 million signed the petition?

    Why is this deemed a success by remainers?
    Brexiters bang on and on and on and on about The 17.4 Million being the biggest ever vote for something, as if the commitment itself that's been shown must make the cause right. By that 'logic', the biggest ever parliamentary petition indicates that whatever it's for must be the right thing to do.

    Which one is a democratic vote though?

    I'm just curious as to why such a small percent of the UK population signing it creates such excitement.
    Is the petition only available online, if so, that will be an issue for a significant %age. Then there's all the children that'll probably not partake,,,,

    Is our democracy decided by a democratic vote or online petitions?

    At the end of the day the people voted leave. Remainers want to try over turn a democratic decision without it ever being implemented. If the shoe was on the other foot how would you react?

    Politics and democracy is finished in the UK and history will show only one side the remainers were the ones who finished it.

    If we are playing the democracy card it's worth pointing out it was very clear the vote was an advisory one. There was and is absolutely no obligation on the part of the government to act on it.

    So the people should have the final say on how we leave, not the politicians.

    How about the ones who lied and misled the public to get the result they wanted?

    How could it be the end of the day when it was 3 years ago?

    Typical Brexiter 'logic' to claim that having a vote would be undemocratic. Could argue it would be divisive, could argue it would be a waste of time, or a waste of money, but undemocratic? Completely incoherent.

    By Brexiteer logic there is no need for a second referendum, May will be the PM for eternity and Sturgeon will be the First Minister for eternity. There was a democratic vote for all three, so no need for any more voting by the public.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    ... and of course, everyone knows brexiteers are famous for their veracity. It's a twitter tweet... from a tw"t... No actual proof required?

    Interesting lack of support for revoking A50 in Northern Ireland given that they voted to remain.

    Maybe some now seeing it as a route to a United Ireland through the backstop back door?

    Now stands at more than the population of Scotland.

    Notable that the top 100 constituencies all voted remain.

    Love the idea that we have a public enquiry about this whole mess.

    Id start a petition myself but I can live without the death threats.

    So, out of all the people ho could be bothered to turn up at an election, over two thirds of them can't be arsed to click on a link? Wow I'm impressed, how many times did you vote for it?
    Remember the journalist who has voted 3 times all using the name Donald Trump, and my pet hamster voted twice.

    I see another petition has been rejected because Westminster does not have the authority
