‘Leave’ supporters heap abuse and DEATH THREATS on creator of ‘Revoke Article 50’ petition

It’s strange. Only today (March 24) I was in a dialogue with someone who was determined that all the abuse in the Brexit debate comes from remainers.

How wrong can a person be – especially on the day after Margaret Georgiadou, the woman who wrote the “Revoke Article 50” petition, revealed she has received death threats from his fellow ‘leave’ supporters.

According to iNews, she has received three death threats from people who called her on the telephone, and a torrent of abuse on Facebook that has pushed her into closing down her account with that platform.

Here are her tweets confirming it:

It seems these miserable individuals have forgotten that one person has already died because she supported remaining in the European Union – Jo Cox.

Hopefully the police will track them down and teach them the error of their ways. Threatening to kill somebody is a crime, you know.

The petition itself has now been signed by more than 5.25 million people.

Leavers like my own sparring partner are saying that it won’t have any validity, no matter how many signatures it attracts – because it isn’t another referendum. It doesn’t have to be.

All it has to do is demonstrate that enough people in the UK now disagree with the decision to leave the European Union. In this instance, “enough” is any number greater than the 17.3 million or so who voted to leave in 2016.

According to iNews (again), Brexit expert Alex de Ruyter reckons 20 million would be nearer the mark – to show a significant shift in public opinion.

Well, it’s a quarter of the way there!

In fairness, though, it’s slowing down.

But there’s a fair bit of time before any of the deadlines – the new deadlines – set for Brexit.

If you haven’t signed it yet, what are you waiting for? Don’t forget to tell al your friends.

    If they called her on the telephone presumably they knew her, most leavers are not in the slightest bit bothered about the so called petition as there is clear evidence it has been hit by bots.

      No – if they called her on the telephone we may conclude that they stalked her, which is a different matter entirely.

      If there is clear evidence that the petition has been “hit by bots”, why have you not provided it?

        In contacting her by phone and making such threats, they are guilty of a Malicious Communication

    Terrorism is the threat, or use of, violence against civilians to advance a political cause.
    Let’s call these people out as the Terrorists they are.

    Without wishing to generalise there are some extremely nasty right wing thugs supporting the nonsense of Brexit – which says a great deal about Brexit itself.

    What kind of world do we now inhabit, in which the go-to expression of disapproval is to threaten sombody’s life? This kind of behaviour is becoming a worrisome trend.
