‘Cancel Brexit’ petition tops record 4 million signatures, crashing website at least twice

A petition on British Parliament’s website to stop Brexit and remain in the European Union topped 4,400,000 signatures on Saturday, one of the fastest-growing on record with traffic bringing down the site at least twice.

“The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is ‘the will of the people,’” the petition reads. “We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People’s Vote may not happen — so vote now.”

The call for Prime Minister Theresa May to revoke Article 50 is now one of the most popular petitions ever on Parliament’s site, surpassing 2016’s petition calling for a second referendum on Brexit and crashing the site early Thursday morning as traffic spiked.
