Since the disappointment of Thursday, you’ve probably noticed a bunch of people on your social media channels sharing a link to a petition urging the country to hold a second referendum.

There’s actually some legal precedent for this to happen – apparently there’s a law that states if the remain or leave vote is less than 60% based on a turnout less than 75% then there should be another referendum. It’s gained a lot of momentum since it was first implemented with around about 3.7 million signatures on it at the time of writing. That’s the highest number of signatures ever on the government’s official petitions website and it seemed like they were set to debate it tomorrow in the Houses Of Parliament.
Downing Street though have come out and quashed those rumours, with an spokeswoman for David Cameron releasing the following statement:
That is not remotely on the cards. There was a decisive result and the focus of the Government is to get on and deliver that.
Party poopers. I suppose there must be something we can do to try and stop it from happening though? I mean if there’s enough protests the government has to listen to us right? That’s what usually happens isn’t it?
Nope, we’re fucked. Oh well, maybe we should all just get on with it and deal with it. Or failing that, we’ll probably end up in this list of the top 5 countries in the world with the highest suicide rates. At least we’ll be top of something again.
