Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

To me yeah it was obvious due to how regular the climb was and even during nighttime. I also said this from the moment that poll was discussed here.
True, but perhaps you missed the replies thereafter which said that British citizens live all over the world and also thousands of people work shifts, are up with sleepless babies, have insomnia, been out clubbing, etc., etc., etc. They don't close the petition after 10.30 pm GMT in the assumption that the good people of the UK have popped off for their 8 hours slumber.

It was also pointed out to you that the volume of traffic on the site had forced it to restrict refreshes to every 15 mins which is why it appeared to climb steadily.

By the way, it's not really a poll or a vote or an election, just a petition. Works online in a similar way they used to go around getting signatures on paper before knocking on the door of 10 Downing Street to hand them over with great ceremony.

I don't know why everyone is getting their knickers in a twist about it (it's quite funny, actually).

The government can cry "fake" and ignore it if they want to but if they're smart, they'll at least consider that a fair few people are more than a bit pissed off.
