← New British Petition: Stop the Nightmares

You have to be a british citizen?....
oh well.
Why not create a new one where you accept the signing of everyone who wants to sign?
After all this form of child abuse isn't ONLY happening in Britain.
In case it's not clear, the site where the petition is based is an official UK government site. For that reason, it only takes signatures from British citizens and residents. Once the petition deadline has passed, the signatories will all get an official response from the government.

Of course that response will be hand-wavy and waffly in the extreme, but at least a civil servant will spend time composing it.

If you want to start a similar petition on another site then feel free. But you won't get a response from the British government :-)
