Rejected petition Remain in EU, now that we know the costs (per voter: Leave £1000, Remain £4/wk)
The 2016 referendum was not well-informed. Now the cost of leaving the EU is clear: ~£45 billion (£1000 per voter). The net cost of remaining is £8.6 billion/yr, or £4 per voter/wk. This petition, for Remain, and a parallel petition, for Leave, allow people to tell MPs their current view.

Figures for voter numbers from here:
~£45 billion/~46 million = ~1000
~£8.6 billion/~46 million/52 = ~4
