That'd make be a decent parallel if the petition was created by one of William's lot, as it turns out the second referendum petition was created by a Leave campaigner who expected it to be used in the event that the result was too close to be (what HE deemed to be) conclusive - apparently it's bad form for the remain camp to use it for that self same purpose.

It was set up before the referendum, called for a second vote if it was a close result either way, and only got 22 votes. The bad form is over 3 million people suddenly deciding it's a good idea when they know the result hasn't gone the way they want it. It's neither here nor there whether they set up a fresh petition or jumped on one that already existed. :lol:

:D

Though I'm not sure how we know that the people who signed are all Remainers.

Incidentally, does anyone know where the voter age statistics that everyone seems to be waving around have come from? Is it based on an exit poll?

The one I've seen was a Lord Ashcroft exit poll of around 13,000 people

Nick Clegg is blessed with foresight by the way... https://inews.co.uk/opinion/comment/wil ... ote-leave/

Based on a ukgov poll of about 12000 people a couple of days before the vote. Even better is the one that shows the more educated you were, the more likely you'd vote remain.

Basically, that poll says "clever young people want to stay, stupid old peolle want to go."

I remain massively dubious of polls prior to a real vote.

Hmm, maybe it was a YouGov one. Perhaps it was the one showing that people who said feminism is a force for evil all voted leave that was Lord Ashcroft.

There wasn't an official exit pool for the referendum... the yougov and others were just normal polls on ejection day

(That was a typo but since it fits I'll leave it)

Out of interest would you know a good bit to visit for a week (or possibly slightly less). Never been to France on holiday but looking for a relaxed break by some nice coast in September and don't really know where to start looking... turns out France is really big.

In Brittany? Dinan. Beautiful town and easy reach to great things like Mont saint Michel.
Elsewhere in France? Périgueux or somewhere else along the Dordogne.

Quite fitting what with the old codgers wanting to take a stand.

Annecy is really beautiful too, as are places like Morzine even outside the skiing season.

Also, aside from Calais itself, Pas De Calais is really really nice.

+1 for the Dordogne as well, the Loire from Blois to Saumur and Tours is also very nice. Hit me up if you want some good vineyard recommendations too. ;)
