I agree that that the Blur tribe have completely devalued the point of petitions and that through lack of moderation by those responsible for the No 10 petition site they have managed to erode their support as is shown in comments made by those more worthy than I on the pages of arrse.
However some petitions along with other methods of support have resulted in actions (example below) and hopefully something will come of it.
I strongly believe our present bunch of politicians would prefer us all to have the same jaundice view as expressed here and we will eventually leave them alone to do exactly what they want.
I have been saying this site is a total waste of time for ages now. The thing is it is even intruding on my arrse time. Mods can we get all references to this TOTAL waste of time deleted and just ignore it?
I agree. What little trust I have in MPs who are, almost exclusively, self-centred hypocrites, erodes still further. They are meant to be representatives of the people yet refuse to listen to the very people who elected them. I was, for a single flippant moment, going to suggest someone enters a petition suggesting that the government actually takes note of petitions (well, the sensible ones anyway) ... but what's the point.
