Whilst I have been known to petition via the tabloids, I have just been pointed towards this interesting UK Gov website. (I was looking at what frivolities [hmmm] were being paid for by the UK tax payer - me, for one.) How lucky are we that we are so democratic and can petition our Parliament on everything that concerns us. We only need 200,000 signatures per Petition for a debate to start in Government.

I think she's talking about the government petition website, all petitions.
