As someone said in the case of the California judge who gave a 6mo probation to the wasp Stanford rapist, Petitions have news and aggravation value, but no legal force.
However, this is interesting:
If the UK parliament does not ratify or delay
Suppose they have 10M signatures on this petition, plus the Londonistan, Scotchistan and NEireistan secession petitions, what does the Parliament have to lose by voting STAY, or not ratifying at all? They have everything to lose by ratifying.
I assume that rural England does not have an overwhelming majority. Trouble with the Referendum is that the Don't Cares don't vote - which significantly affects the STAY vote because those are the Ejjikated Self-Important Pompous Asses. The Angry Englander would have gone and voted LEAVE.
In Parliament, however, all are represented, and u can bet the Chief Whip will whip their Honorable butts if they don't vote.
Question then is: Will EU give them the middle finger? Can they afford to? If u were a German executive of EU and u saw that by accommodating Scotchstan and NEirestan u can in one little push, break the long-hated UNITED queendom - what would u do? Lets see now.. I gotta think about it - 4 a microsecond...
