Like many people, I suspect, I signed the petition not because I think there’s a realistic chance of Article 50 being revoked, but instead to remind May that there are many millions of us out here who don’t want to leave the EU. The will of the people is divided.

My daughters have very carefully, precisely and secretively placed 10p coins under their chairs. I love them, but sometimes they are very sinister.

The “Revoke Article 50” petition is closing in on ¾ of a million, and gaining about 3k signatures per minute.
