It didn’t have an effect in the EU parliament why would it be any different here.

Just 'cos the people of Europe are watching and seeing that a fair few of the population of the UK and UK citizens around the world are keen to hang on to their European identity now that it is under threat ...it likely as not 'aint gonna change anything, so no effect ...

I've just received an email from the UK Government saying that they will be debating the petition on the 1st April. Just before that email I received one saying the Government is committed to ensuring that the results of the referendum be upheld.
Someday is now : )

Donald Tusk says the eu must respect and not betray the 5 million people who signed the petition and the thousands who marched to revoke article 50 as they are Europeans. I would ask you Donald, did the eu respect the 5 million people and the hundreds of thousands who marched against the copyright laws and were they betrayed by the eu passing it? You can’t have it both ways. People just let his sound bites and comments go by without any challenge.

Petitions and marches do nothing other than draw attention to something, since they tend to get reported in the media, whereas otherwise they wouldn't. If over 15 million people voted to remain in the EU in the referendum it is hardly surprising that 5 million people would sign a petition to repeat their view. It doesn't exactly take a lot of effort, less than was needed to vote in the referendum. It's also not surprising that hundreds of thousands march to protest. That takes more effort but not a lot. Is marching down some London streets much harder than walking to the polling station? If it makes them happy then let them do it but don't expect it to change anything.

Tusk and Verhofstadt are politicians and they say whatever suits their political ends just like UK MPs. They are tales told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
