    I signed this a while back and put a topic on here for it already.
    You should be aware that 100,000 signatories doesn't stop anything, it just forces parliament to have a debate about it...

    [EDIT] having read the e-petition site i'll correct myself - "and if it gets at least 100,000 signatures, it will be considered for debate in the House of Commons"
