Two people have told me how disappointed they are with the paltry number of signatories to the Daily Express e-petition for an in/out referendum on the EU so I’m posting this for the record. I reckon that if I know of two, you probably know of two as well, and so on, so spread the word.
The Daily Express, who instigated the e-petition, will be adding their paper signatures to the total – and apparently they already have in the region of 70,000 paper signatures. The e-petition has a truly measly 23,000 but add those to the ones already collected and we’re nearly there.
Read the article linked to above; it’s there in black and white amidst all the hype. Just keep pushing the link below. There’s an e-petition from me on the website too, but there’s no point pushing that or any of the others because that will simply fragment the votes. The one below is the petition to push.
Once the 100,000 barrier is breached more people will be aware of what this government is made of (blancmange). It’s no good sitting back and saying the government have no intention to pull us out of the EU so there’s no point signing: prove that the government are a waste of space by signing it and making them confront it. It’s time the issue was forced and we’re nearly there.
