Petition for Second EU Referendum Under Scrutiny Over Fake Signatures

Petition is being investigated for fraud as about 77K signatures seem to be fake or signed by people who aren't British citizens: thousands from Vatican and North Korea. Marine le Pen even posted a video where she managed to sign it under the name of Napoleon Bonaparte.

The most disgraceful aspect of the Brexit vote is that it seems like democracy is only good enough for one side of this debate and not the other. (There are also the disgraceful claims by those that lost that those voting to leave must be racist).

Leaving the EU is not the disaster people think it will be. It will only be made bad by fear mongering, attacks from big money interests shocking the stock market including the downgrading the UK's credit rating, and similar shenanigans. The benefit is having real democracy from Brussels' edicts.
