Success of Petition for Second EU Referendum Is 4Chan Prank, Dupes BBC

On Saturday the authoritarian eurostatists at the BBC clung to their last hope:

More than 2.5 million people have signed a petition calling for a second EU referendum, after the vote to leave.

It has more signatures than any other on the parliamentary website and as it has passed 100,000, Parliament will consider it for a debate. …

The fact that more than one and a half million people have signed a petition calling for a second EU referendum has attracted a lot of attention – but it has zero chance of being enacted. …

However, there is talk around Westminster… of whether any deal on Brexit negotiated with the EU should then be put to a referendum further down the line.

But yesterday the Beeb confessed,

The House of Commons petitions committee is investigating allegations of fraud in connection with a petition calling for a second EU referendum.

Its inquiry is focused on the possibility that some names could be fraudulent – 77,000 signatures have already been removed. …

The House of Commons petitions committee said it will continue to monitor the petition for “suspicious activity”.

“Suspicious activity” is putting it mildly. Heat Street tells the whole story:

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. The BBC is failing totally in its Charter Duty to perform basic journalistic research. Here is the actual script:


Heat Street can exclusively bring our readers the proof that the spamming of the petition is a magnificent 4Chan prank that the Chads and Stacys of the BBC and liberal media swallowed whole.

Only British citizens or residents are allowed to sign the petition, yet many of the supposed signatories are from Ghana and the Vatican, which provided an impressive 39,411 signatures despite its population being only 800. No doubt these red flags were left for laughs, as the 4Chan pranksters tested the limits of what they could get away with.

The Beeb’s bumbling Chads and Stacys have some egg to wipe from their faces — unless their bitter Brexit tears have already washed the egg away.

On tips from J, physicsnut, and Torcer.
