The introduction of e-petitions to 10 Downing Street has prompted much national rejoicing.
The petitions ask the Prime Minister to:
stay until 2009;
replace her gracious majesty with a president;
stand on his head and juggle ice cream; (7 signatories at time of writing)
bring back capital punishment, national service, and abolish political correctness;
keep HP sauce in Britain;
retire the monarchy;
resign immediately (ETA 11.37 this has now been signed by “Dr John Reid” and “Saddam Hussein” – oh how wonderful democracy in action is) or simply resign;
promote the learning of the guitar;
replace the national anthem with Gold by Spandau Ballet;
and my personal favourites
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to test the closed petitions feature (and ignore this petition) submitted by Tom Steinberg. Mr Steinberg also petitioned
“We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Reject this test petition” which I feel is something we can all endorse.
As yet nothing from Frank Harvey, petitioner extraodinaire in the Scottish Parliament. I will give a summary of some of Harvey’s petitions in the next couple of days.
