UK people already #Regrexit — an online petition already gathered over 3million signatures and it’s asking for a second try on Britain’s voted choice to leave the EU.

LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 22:  The British Union flag and the European flag fly outside The European Parliament Office on February 22, 2016 in London, England. A referendum will take place on June 23 to decide whether the United Kingdom will remain part of the European Union (EU).

By Sunday morning, 3,048,000 people had signed the petition on the official UK Government website number takes it well over the 100,000-signature threshold needed to force a debate on the issue by members of Parliament.

A rush to sign the petition caused the website to crash temporarily due to the high volume of traffic Saturday.

 

The petition, set up by William Oliver Healey, states: “We the undersigned call upon [the UK] Government to implement a rule that if the Remain or Leave vote is less than 60%, based on a turnout less than 75%, there should be another referendum.”

Thursday’s referendum had a turnout of 72% — an increase over last year’s general election turnout of 66%, but below the 75% suggested in the petition.

The “Leave” campaign won with 17,410,74 votes — 52% — to the “Remain” team’s 16,141,241, or 48%.
