end this e-petition gimmick
The British Parliamentary system requires MPs to act as free-thinking representatives of their electors - not delegates.
The e-petition initiative is an anathema to this arrangement; it panders to the lowest common denominators of British society, to Tabloid mean-mindedness, and it will be abused by extremists on all side.
Kill it at birth.
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.
