The 4 Chan Bots represent the ultimate failure of the Remainstream Media.
The BBC’s desperate shilling for Remain will come under increasing scrutiny as we exclusively reveal that the supposed ‘popular petition’ for a second referendum – wholly illegal and unworkable, and unprecedented in British history – is a prank by notorious sh*tposters 4 Chan.
The BBC, the UK’s national broadcaster, gleefully reported, as real, with no basic journalistic checks, an online petition that appeared to be growing at a colossal rate. By 1:30 pm, it was one of the fastest-growing petitions in history.
So fast, in fact, that somebody should have checked for bots and scripts.
Here are 4Chan boasting about their work on the petition
Posts include:
Almost fifty thousand signatures from Vatican City
*
They’ll look at the IPs and wonder how the fuck people from north Korea and the Vatican are voting
*
mfw we are playing 4D chess and everyone assumes we are anime shitposters
*
Most online petitions are fraudulent as fuck anyway due to the lack of any verification needed and the fact that you can make a petition over anything.
Anyone remember the whitehouse.gov petition by /jp/ to ban normalf*gs and janitors? Something to that effect anyway.

How long until they blame Putin’s hackers for it?

The government has removed 70,000 fake signatures from the 3 million anti-government petition. Not so fake.

Yup.

Somebody didn't do all their research before making the triumphant OP.

I'm stunned, I tell you.

The Peoples' wishes are inconsequential.

Regards,

Your friendly leftists -- and the primary beneficiaries of their utopian delusions, globalist aristocrats.

That's several degrees of irrelevance beyond your normal scope, are you having help?

Yeah because clearly Brexit was so unpopular that it just passed by popular vote.
