Parliamentary response to People’s Vote petition

Probably the only good idea to be implemented since the 2010 General Election is the ability of large groups of people to push for debate in the House of Commons if a cause can gain over 100,000 signatures.

It sounds good in principle and there have been a handful of useful debates forced via this method. However, there are many more that just get rejected by whoever sits in the cramped office/broom cupboard allocated to this endeavour.

With zero sense of irony here is the response to a petition asking Parliament to debate a People’s Vote if no deal could be reached with the EU by 29th March. Up yours to the over 300,000 people who signed it! This paragraph just adds insult to injury.
