A Petition with a difference

By Mike Cunningham On November 30th, 2013

I have just logged on to the Government’s e-Petition site, and generated my petition which is shown below, and which should appear in around seven days.

I do hope that this gets some circulation; legs, whatever the term might be, because I feel rather strongly about this particular issue. After all, if even Albania doesn’t want the filthy stuff, why on earth should we give it more that a second’s thought before giving a flat and resounding rejection to this proposal?

We don’t want it, we don’t need it, and we surely have enough problems on this small and crowded country without importing someone else’s problems!

We wish to petition the Government of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland in protest against the importation of any part whatsoever of the residue, material or structure associated with the disposal of the Chemical Weaponry which is to be made safe from the Syrian State.

If anyone, anywhere else in the world wants to make itself the repository for this deadly material, good luck to them; but it should not be Great Britain, as we already have enough waste products of our own production to be going along with.

  1. Your posts are a great cure for insomnia, Mike.

  2. Petr T.,

    Presumably, you woke to comment upon it, so why complain?

    I am a bit surprised that you think a petition will be taken notice of by the government.

  4. Colm,

    If enough tell that crowd that they will not tolerate something, they do take notice!

  5. One million people plus, took the time and effort, and even obtained ‘State approval’ beforehand to march within a mile of Wastemonster to show that we serfs did not agree with the Bankers Governments war in Iraq, they took not a blind bit of notice, what makes anyone think that a few signatures would achieve anything.

    If democracy ever changed anything, they would simply ban it.

    Er, no they don’t.

    I will endeavour to sign it anyway.

  8. the Government of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland

    I hate to be pedantic, but surely that should read “the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”?

  9. Peter,

    Terminal case of dyslexia-lite, I’m afraid.
