Petition to suspend e-petitions
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.
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.
