What's with all these petitions?

Posted by Helen Saturday, May 16, 2009

We seem to have regressed to an early Mediaeval monarchic polity when the serfs of the benign (or not) monarch petition him (or her) for relief from their problem. First we had Guido Fawkes's (no, I will not link to him) petition to get rid of the elected Prime Minister. Now we have the far more sensible Tim Montgomerie setting up a new site, called There is Nothing British about the BNP with a slightly odd petition in pride of place.

Well, naturally, I have felt the need to rant about it on Your Freedom and Ours. Enjoy.
