A Petition Has Reached 20,000 Signatures Calling For EU Referendum Cancellation

A petition has been created, and received over 20,000 signatures calling for the EU Referendum to be scrapped because of the murder of MP Jo Cox.

The petition is surging in support, even though many people have been branding those who are linking Brexit and her death, as political point scorers.

As of this afternoon, 20,000 have signed the petition, asking for the vote to be called off at the last minute.

Based on the number of signatures in the time period it was released, it is expected to reach 100,000 signatures before Thursdays vote, a limit that would in normal cases trigger a debate in parliament.  It is however unlikely that it would be enough time to actually proceed with the debate.
