From #Brexit to #Regrexit

#Regrexit is the trending hashtag on social media today after an online petition demanding a second referendum on Britain's decision to leave the EU passed two million signatures.

By yesterday afternoon, the more than two million people had signed the petition on the official UK Parliament website.

That number takes it well over the 100,000-signature threshold needed to force a debate on the issue by members of Parliament.

A rush to sign the petition caused the website to crash temporarily due to the high volume of traffic.
