Abolish the e-petition system
We want the abolition of the Government's e-petition system. It encourages nonsensical, impractical and downright crazy ideas and gives the impression that they have public support - and is a waste of both taxpayer's money and MPs' time. We do not need MPs devoting time in parliament to the views of 100,000 hardline extremists or joke petitions.
You can't sign this petition because it was rejected. But you can still comment on it here at Repetition.me!
The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:
There's already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue.
You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
