The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
I don't know what anyone expects these petitions to achieve, the most popular one is being ignored, why would this one be different.
Although I agree with what is being asked for, frankly, what is the point?
I would sign if I thought that there was one.
Every political issue which involves a previous Labour "decision" (or as in this story - involving common decency or sense from one of their own) when put to the No 10 site results in a response which boils down to a patronising
"Thanks for your opinion. We have ours too and your petition isn't going to change it. Now F off......"
The site is simply there to act as a sop to any activists - it allows them to think they are making a difference when on results, they are anything but.
Site's a con.
Agree entirely. These things are utterly pointless and a sop thrown to the public to demonstrate that the Government are 'listening'.
Bloody hell. Are you me?
Both posted at identical times. I want my mummy.
You having an identity crisis,Sixty?...
It achieves the illusion, to the simple minded, that you actually have a 'casting vote'. The deluded proles believe they actually have a voice in amongst the doublethink.
Isn't the most popular one calling for Broon to resign? What good will this one do?
So was the Grays Lane petition pointless ?
Were the tens of thousands who signed that petition proles ?
In the words of Mr Tesco "Every Little Helps!"
