Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
I've been off the web for a few days rebuilding our main fileserver, so haven't been able to monitor the progress of the petition much until today. Also, the Christmas period was always likely to have an unpredictable effect.

Here's the best I've got so far.

Though there was a decrease to 500 signings per day from the plateau of 1,600, this has now been reversed following the Christmas break.

Today at 10:23 GMT there were 20,932 signatures. Now, 13:56 GMT there are 21,610 ... i.e. 678 signatures in 3.5 hours. This suggests that we're up at around 1,500 signatures per day (or basically where we left off before Christmas). All I can really say, until it starts to drop in a predictable fashion is that you can add at least 3,000 to that number.

So, looks like a minimum of 25,000 at the moment.
