Non-governmentally run E-Petition service

The power of social politics via Internet e-petitions should be held by a externally audited and regulated 3rd party organization not the state. How is social democracy ever going to be representative if the people that control it are not farely elected. Similarly to interest rates previously being decided by politicians before switching to the current system were the bank of Englands top economists set inflation; E-petitions should not be governed by the governmenttakes either as it takes away the whole purpose of the petition system.

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

E-petitions cannot be used to request action on issues that are outside the responsibility of the government. This includes:

  • party political material
  • commercial endorsements including the promotion of any product, service or publication
  • issues that are dealt with by devolved bodies, eg The Scottish Parliament
  • correspondence on personal issues

E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.
