For anyone, who might be unaware, the UK has a system of e-petitions. You submit your e-petition to the Home Office website. It is vetted and, if approved, goes on line. 100,000 signatures in a year could prompt a debate in parliament.
I have, in the interests of democracy and mending broken communities, submitted the following petition, which has been approved:
That the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 be repealed and replaced with national legislation making dog fouling a criminal offence with sufficient penalties to enable allegations to be heard at the Crown CourtImagine the debate in parliament; "can I ask the honourable member if she has ever plastered her shoes in dog faeces? If she had, she might not be laughing" or "has the honourable member recently had to pay to have his carpets cleaned? This is a problem faced by thousands of families on low incomes".
I urge you, in the strongest possible terms, to sign this petition. Together, we can show that democracy works for the people and isn't there to enable individuals to have a laugh. Absolutely not!!!
