The new petitions site that MySociety have set up is a really good idea, but I hope that it doesn’t get so overwhelmed with petitions that it’s hard to find what you’re looking for. It seems that every time I look at the list, there are more petitions that I want to sign. Here are a few that I’ve signed so far:
- Scrap ID cards
- Allow copying of CDs
- Stop using fear of terror as an excuse to pass bad laws
- Independent inquiry into Iraq
- Tax on inefficient lightbulbs
Tim Ireland has got a bit silly. But currently the petition that I’d urge you to sign (assuming, of course, that you agree with it) is the one abolishing faith schools and banning the teaching of creationism in schools.
