The 10 Downing Street e-petitions site provides a fascinating snapshot of what is exercising the minds of UK citizens today. Our petition climbs steadily but the steps are steeper when you get this ‘near’ the top of the list – please promote these petitions wherever you can. Thanks.
We are in this campaign for the long haul and so there is every chance that we can get a lot of signatures. Critics can charge that petitions don’t change much and they would be right, but they are nevertheless one small tool in our toolkit – an indicator to the government of the strength of public feeling and a way to raise awareness of the issue.
