Protest in London After Brexit4Anti-Brexit protests broke out on the streets of London after a petition for a second EU referendum attracted 1.5 million signatures within a day, DailyMail reports.

Most of the signatures in the petition came from from place with high number of student population such as North London, Cambridge and Oxford. More than 3,000 of David Cameron‘s (who announced that he will leave office in October) constituents also signed the petition.

The parliament will consider a petition for a debate after it attracts 100,000 or more signatures, and the government will respond to a petition with 10,000 or more signatures.

The petitioners are calling for another referendum, saying that the “Leave” camp won with less than 60% of the votes and was based on a turnout of less than 75 per cent.

    They are not serious; I thought switzerland was suppose to act as a lesson learnt. Being in the European union has its pros and cons.
    They can’t cap immigration as per refugees if they are in the EU.

    …and should their wish be granted and the REMAINERS win by less than 60%, then the BREXITEERS will also petition then it becomes a cycle which will set a bad precedence for their democracy. there are sore losers everywhere.

    All those signing and protesting are probably EU citizens. The Brits who can vote have spoken. Don’t waste your time because the second one will be a disgrace as more will be angered and come and vote.
    The Brexit success was also as a result of the laziness and non challant, liberal attitude of the younger generation. I bet some are protesting because they were sleeping off a club night when voting was going on. Too late o jare. I support Brexit.
    All this EU crap is just not a good model. I hope the ones trying to do the same in Africa are watching. We cannot come and kill ourselves doing help your brother when jobless and hungry miscreants that are destroying their own countries start migrating into ours.

    Brexit will plunge the UK into economic uncertainty unless they are certain they will negotiate new trade deals with emerging markets ( Russia excluded).

    Brexit is good for non EU migrants. When there is a points based system in place like the one in Australia, then quality/qualified people will be able to get in. Now any riff raft with an EU passport is just going to London and collecting benefits! As for the typically daft black people in the UK voting against Brexit, I think someone has cursed them to forever be looked down upon. Those EU people are extremely racist to Africans, as they believe they have more rights than them.

      Don’t mind them, Nigerians love to play the you’re a second citizen card, it’s not your land. I’m 3rd generation British, my grandma and my mum and her siblings were born in UK. I was born and bread in the UK and Nigerians will come and utter such lines like “go back to your country” how is nigeria my country? A country I’ve never spent more than 2 weeks in? Smh
