Get 100,000 e- signatures on a Petition to Government
A new website enabling the public to lodge a petition to the Government electronically online has gone live. The plan is that a petition which gets 100,000 supporters ought to result in a debate on that issue in Parliament
Apparently, Government departments will moderate the petitions, with oversight from the office of the leader of the commons.
We wonder whether the system might be hijacked by people using it to sell petition votes like “likes” on facebook ?
