Don't Sign Up To This

Being able to get your online petition debated in Parliament is a very bad idea, which would negate much of the good done by electoral reform and by primaries for the candidates to be submitted to the reformed voting system.

It would massively favour the shoutiest and the sharpest-elbowed, the people who really do believe that Jeremy Clarkson should be Prime Minister. Many of them are now beginning, or will soon begin, a prolonged period of unemployment, during which they will have all the time in the world for online petitions.
