This petition was submitted during the 2010–2015 Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition government

Rejected petition For the removal of the e-petitions website

We the undersigned believe that online petitions are a substitute for political engagement, and that social networking sites such as Twitter become needlessly and annoyingly clogged with liberals urging each other to sign them.

We therefore call upon the Government to abandon the e-petitions website.
