It's going along at quite a clip, isn't it. It was only at about 14k an hour or so ago.

Yes, it's flying.
There is another one adressed at the Queen, but that doesn't get so much publication.

Who cares about Parliamentary Democracy when we can have Brexit instead.

Historically, the British have brought down unsatisfactory governments by riot rather than by petition, when not at the ballot box. It's a very British tradition.

So, it has already exceeded the number to be considered by Parliament for debate.

But... How does it get debated if Parliament is shut down?

It isn't me. As far as I know I didn't start a petition and I don't suppose it will change a thing, either way. I do, however, think that "the people" should not be forced to accept the ERG's vision of what a brexit should look like especially when it's quite different from what was repeatedly offered to them three years ago in that famous 17.4 million vote.

There was this of course. So you get an idea of how it breaks down.
