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

Rejected petition For the removal of the e-petitions website

More details

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.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue.

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
