We don’t care what you want, I’m ignoring you – No10

That was the
message from Downing St this evening as Tony Blair’s official spokesman boasted
that over a million people who had signed petitions have changed nothing,
according to the Guido
Fawkes
blog. 

Confirming that
over a million people had used the No.10 online petitions website the Prime
Ministers Official Spokesman said

even
when hundreds of thousands of people signed up it did not automatically guarantee was a change in policy, as
sometimes, there were issues such as road pricing where people had strong
views, but strong views did not necessarily equal a solution to congestion.
” 

Over 600,000 have
signed the petition against road pricing so far, with the figure rising on a
daily basis, and we think that its fairly obvious that they don’t think that
road pricing is the answer to congestion, they think you just want more tax
money.

As Guido Fawkes
explained, ‘Not one single petition has been acted upon so far, Guido thinks
you are wasting your time people.
Downing Street is boasting it
has ignored the views of a million people.’ 

The people who put the database together mySociety.org said at the time
of the launch last November, ‘
mySociety
exists partly to spread good practice in the public sector, and we think this
is a nice example of that in action.’

It is a shame
that their good efforts have become such a huge exercise in futility. 

Mr Blair, if you
are determined not to listen to the will of the people, get rid of it, and save
our money.

Another
Labour database not worth our tax money being spent on it.
