Thread Name: UK Licensing Act - another petition.
Subject: RE: UK Licensing Act - another petition.
I have my doubts about how effective these petitions are going to be. At the moment, I notice there are two concurrent petitions calling for the road pricing plan to be scrapped, and another calling for it not to be scrapped; there's one calling for the national anthem to be replaced with "Gold" by Spandau Ballet (5,546 signatures); and among the signatories to one calling for Ashley Hutchings to be knighted are one or two familiar names, but also "Matthew Groves" and "G R Esford Di Saster." Yeah, that one's gonna be taken seriously.

Still, if it raises the issue's profile, I suppose there's no actual harm in signing it. Apart from letting the Government have my name, addres and email. Which they probably have, already.

Yes, I'll sign.
