It was only a couple of days ago I signed such a petition to No. 10. I was asked to do so by a friend and to be honest I reckoned it to be waste of time. But it was on a subject I believed in and I did not want to say no to a friend. So I signed without giving it too much thought. Mind you I think most people sign any petition without thinking too much about it. So I don`t suppose professional politicians do take very much notice of such things.
