Petitioning to get rid of Brown

There are good examples of e-government and there are bad ones. The Number 10 petition site is one of the worst. It allows people to let off steam but it does not go anywhere. There is no transparent process for feeding petitions into the mechanism of government or for demonstrating how they are being considered nor for what the outcome is. That is a direct contrast to the Welsh Assembly's own e-petition site.

This petition calling on the Prime Minister to resign is doubly certain to be ignored therefore, even though it has already attracted 5,400 plus signatures and is threatening to be the next big internet viral after Susan Doyle.

Enjoy it while you can. You have until 22 October to sign it.
