Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
Can we please leave the organising to the organiser, who has demonstrated that he is perfectly able to read. If you read it you will see that it does indeed have a closing date.

Until Graham Dixon expresses his wishes on this small matter of willing and welcome overseas folk, can we please just concentrate on publicising, circulating and making the petition the success it deserves to be and not risk confusing folk who are willing to help?

It is doubtful even if we could manage millions of 'valid' signatures that anyone will take much notice but petitions serve many useful functions. It focuses attention, motivates and the presentation of the finshed thing can take place with a march or an event that will receive media attention.

On behalf of Graham can I thank you for all the help and interest so far. Can we just keep positve? Answers in to me in personal message will prevent deflecting attention away from the object here.
