Certain “now you see it, now you don’t” shenanigans have been reported on the British government’s official e-petition website, involving a well-supported petition to the British government, asking it to stop funding this particular charity with tax-payers’ money. The petition was accepted for publication, but subsequently deleted once significant support had begun to gather.
Before today, there was still an “unofficial” e-petition that one could sign on Change.org, aimed at depriving the trust of future British government funding, but no longer a comparable e-petition on the official government e-petition site.
I have therefore taken it upon myself to create a new petition, which has been accepted, on the government’s own e-petition site, entitled:
Please sign my e-petition (and maybe also the Change.org e-petition too?), if this is an issue that you also care about.
I’m telling you, folks, if they decide to delete my petition, like they did the first one, the government had better think up an excuse for doing so that at least sounds as though it might be “Wednesbury reasonable“, or I’ll see them in court! Go ahead, punks, make my day.
