Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
The following from Graham Dixon.

Hello everyone

The petition now has over 80000 (eighty thousand) online signatures and I have an ever increasing pile of hard copies (A4s over a foot high). [80,439........]

The original intention was to close the petition on 15th March and deliver before the end of the month. However I feel that the opportunity for maximum publicity would be compromised (what with the war et al) if it was delivered now.

That, coupled with the fact that the Musicians Union have embarked on an intensive leafleting campaign, has led me to believe that I should keep it open for a little while longer.

Hamish Birchall (MU) has his finger on the pulse as far as a dates for
maximum impact will be - the petition will be delivered then. It seems to be working well anyway with mentions in both houses, national press & TV/Radio.

If you would like to sign and haven't already done so please go to

Thanks everyone for all their support,

Please copy and paste this to any musical forums that you use.
