Petition to suspend e-petitions

Additional Information

In theory the e-petitions innovation is a excellent idea. It allows British citizens to engage with the institutions of parliament and highlight issues that may be ignored by parliamentarians.
In practice, the innovation has allowed certain issues to be highlighted for the benefit of publicity seeking individuals of all political traditions.
Until the e-petitions idea is improved this petition wants e-petitions to be suspended.

This petition was rejected

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.
