Celebrity Remainers including Hugh Grant and Annie Lennox have signed a petition to cancel Brexit to avoid No Deal today.

Grant claimed every 'sane' person in the country was signing the plea, which was also backed by Professor Brian Cox and Jennifer Saunders.

The petition is soaring toward one million names after Theresa May made a speech blaming Parliament for a delay to Brexit last night.

At just after noon, it was on around 816,000 names and rising rapidly every minute. The petition passed 10,000 names on Monday soon after it was created. Parliament's petition site crashed repeatedly today as the number of signatures rose.

Despite verification checks including a signatory's post code and email addresses, the data from the petition appeared to suggest some names may have been added from overseas. The rule of Parliament's petition site say only UK citizens can sign.

As people flocked to the campaign today, Mrs May was back in front of the cameras on arrival at the EU summit in Brussel - refusing to rule out No Deal and insisting Brexit had to be delivered.

Champagne socialists with savings, investments, private health, shares, the means to earn thousands. Of course they want to stay.

I also signed it, as have many I know.

And you talk about actors and scientists signing it.

Well what of Rees-Mogg? What do him and his likes stand to gain from No Deal?

He's clearly not threatened by it.

Perhaps he even stand to gain from it.

Regardless, scientists generally seem to support remaining in the EU. I'd trust them over Mogg, Johnson and co any day of the week Laughing

Each of us have our own reasons for believing whether to stay in the EU or not. I totally respect remainers because that's what they believe and who is anyone to judge on that. I just don't believe that remaining is right for us in the long term.

Ah, it's a politcal decision, hadn't realised.

So we should let the politicians decide what's best, then. What do most of them think about No Deal then? In fact, what did most of them think about Leaving at all?
