My thoughts precisely. If he is to be given the job, it will be through back-handers and excessive lobbying of the right people / countries anyway, so 1 million signatures from dear old Blighty will not make a bit of difference IMHO.
Its probably the only way that we can show a protest at this totally undemocratic appointment. It is not just a UK petition - Its European, with submissions from all over Europe. The comments are quite interesting to read especially from other Europeans, not a small number of them are calling for the impeachment of Blair for war crimes!
Since when did petitions have any effect on stopping dicators from gaining power?! There is a good chance that Blair is the anti-Christ himself, or at the very least his fore runner. The bloody liar himself Proposed President of a whole Continent? Where exactly has democracy and sanity gone to?
