Petition for new Brexit vote gains more than 39,000 signatures from Vatican City – population 800

Second referendum petition: Concern as call for new Brexit vote gains more than 39,000 signatures from Vatican City – population 800

The petition to hold a second EU referendum that has garnered more than three million signatures since Friday may have been manipulated.

Data published on the UK Government and Parliament Petitions website show a suspicious number of signatures attributed to places outside the UK – in some cases more than their total population.

Some 39,411 residents of Vatican City, home to Pope Francis, appeared to have signed the petition by Sunday morning, despite the tiny city state having a total population of just 800.
