That is now up at 3,763,766 signatures after a few adjustments:

EU referendum petition hijacked by bots

The House of Commons petitions committee said it had removed 77,000
signatures and was investigating.

Worth a punt if only to add more numbers to raise debate.

Anyone know what number is needed to hit 10% of the total votes number?

And in yet more irony as if we haven't enough as it is, the petition was
set up by a Leave supporter...

Note also from Farage himself:

"UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who has campaigned for the UK to leave the EU
throughout his political career, said in May that a narrow win for
Remain could cause unstoppable demand for a rerun of the referendum.

He said at the time that a result that saw Remain win by 52% to 48%
would mean "unfinished business by a long way".

Here's hoping for a positive shake-up!
