Petitions Committee 7m
We know there are problems with the Petitions site. We are working to get it back up and running as soon as possible.

Back up. Good on the site's ops team. At least one part of the State in good form.

Looks like the Petitions website has now revoked itself in silent sympathy.

The newest episode with and is a delight. Speaking as a teacher, it has a definite 'last day of term' energy about it.

Won't happen again. And I am still drawing a line at referendums. Go straight to revocation, no messing about.

Am a Bruges Speech era Eurosceptic. I do not object to Brexit in principle, though after Maastricht it was always going to be more trouble than it was worth. But the current go at Brexit has been botched as badly as it could be. Article 50 should just now be revoked.

Signed it. And in the event any of you are not bemused Russian pornbots, you should sign it too.

Am now going to have to sign one of those online petitions. The shame of it.

Any intellectually honest Brexit supporter has to admit that the whole process needs a fresh start.

A mountaineer once said of Everest before 1953, let's just climb the bloody thing and get back to some proper mountaineering. The same can be said of Article 50. Let's just revoke the bloody thing and get back to some proper policy and politics.

Beware of any politician, on any side, like this. The very reason for checks and balances in a constitution.

And second, much of the debate now is couched as if getting this deal over the line is all that matters. But it isn’t. We then need stable majorities for the really hard negotiations to come. (End)
