A petition demanding Theresa Could revokes Article 50 and cancels Brexit has handed a million signatures.
“The federal government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is ‘the need of the folks’,” the petition says.
“We have to put a cease to this declare by proving the power of public help now, for remaining within the EU. A Individuals’s Vote could not occur – so vote now.”
It brought on the official petitions web site to crash, with a surge in help following the prime minister’s Downing Road speech on Wednesday.
Mrs Could pinned the blame on MPs for her transfer to hunt a delay to Brexit from the top of this month to 30 June, telling voters: “I’m in your aspect.”
Actors Hugh Grant and Jennifer Saunders each promoted the petition on social media, as did physicist Brian Cox.
Greater than 600,000 had signed the petition by 9am, at which era the web site reported an error message.
By 12.30pm, greater than 800,000 had signed the petition with the web site restored.
A Home of Commons spokesperson mentioned the “technical difficulties” have been because of “a big and sustained load on the system”.
