Is revoking Article 50 a million-to-one shot?
Signing petitions is a lot easier than it used to be.
Where once you had to physically pick up and pen and sign your name on a piece of paper, now it can be done with a click of a mouse.
Social media makes it even easier, enabling them to be quickly shared around the globe in seconds. And if it happens to be shared by someone famous, just sit back and watch those sweet numbers rack up.
That goes part of the way towards explaining why a petition on the Parliament’s website calling for Article 50 to be revoked has been ‘signed’ by more than a million people in less than 24 hours.
The numbers would be even higher were it not for the fact that the site, unused to such vast traffic numbers, keeps crashing.
Number 10 insist Theresa May remains implacably opposed to withdrawing her Article 50 letter altogether, telling journalists: “The PM has long been clear that failure to deliver on the referendum result would be a failure of our democracy. It is something she would not countenance.”
But with MPs set to launch a fresh push next week to seize control of the Brexit process from the Downing Street, it may not end up being her decision.
Nigel Farage has taken an almighty sledgehammer to the cliché that whatever the Brexit saga brings next, it has lost its ability to shock.
Boris Johnson has added to his list of odd Commons appearances by rapping lines from Goldie Lookin Chain.
The comments will come as a major blow to the eight Labour MPs who ran in last year's London Marathon.
MPs have questioned how long the UK's toilet roll suppy can last if Dover gets clogged up after Brexit.
