Downing Street website launches e-petitions. Oh the temptation!

Downing Street is slowly catching up with new media and has created a section on it;s website where people can create petitions. This will remove the need for people to embarrass the Prime Minister by walking down Downing Street to deliver petitions and just generally keep the riff-raff and proles away.

It looks like the petitions are moderated in some way sadly, so know Miliband Wiki-style mischeif I'm afraid. Of course, one could submit lots and lots of petitions just to create a heavy workload, but that would be exceptionally naughty.

You beat me to it, I wanted to write about this too. Is the idea to prevent people handing in petitions to 10 Downing Street? How many get handd in a day? And, most importantly, do they make any difference, does anyone listen?
