Re-run referendum?

I have just signed the petition which is effectively trying to get a second referendum held

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/131215/

Yes, the Leave side won, and with a turnout of 72.2%. But the result was too close and the Leave vote represents only 37.8% of all registered voters. Can we really rely on a first past the post system to decide to make the most important political, economic and constitutional decision since the war?

of course if there was a second referendum I would not be able to vote. As of 1st July I can no longer vote in British elections or referendums (referenda?) and the only French elections I can vote in are for the local council.
