In case you hadn't seen it yet...

A parliamentary petition to revoke Article 50. Its looking unlikely we will get a 'Peoples' Vote', so take this opportunity if you are that way inclined.

Heading for 3 million signatures as I type.

Fat lot of good it will do.

The geographical "heat map" is interesting, particularly if you set it to show percentage of the electorate rather than raw numbers.

It was at 1.2 million when I signed. Over 5.5 million now.

When Yvette Cooper's staff checked the first 100 names on the position to deselect her from her constituency, they found only 3 valid voters with a Wakefield address.

I'd get all those details verifed before I broadcast the count.

There are no doubt plenty of people outside Wakefield who don't like Yvette Cooper.

The Revoke Article 50 petition ended up with well over 6 million signatures - all cross-checked fairly minutely I believe, as there were so many Brexiteers trying to rubbish it.
