Where you are – update

If you had a guess at how many signatures our e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting will achieve before it closes on 21 January then your name should be on this list.

If your name is in red, then I’m afraid events have already passed you by – but thank you for being a sport and having a go.

If your name is in blue, then you are still in with a chance.

The further down the list you are then the more it is in your interests to get lots and lots of your friends to sign up too!

There are eight whole days to go – perhaps nine – depending on when on 21 January the government website closes down (I’ve asked, but not yet had an answer).  Those extra 24 hours might make quite a lot of difference the way things are going at the moment.  There certainly is a surge in signatures right at the end.

Sign here, please, to send a strong message to Liz Truss  (winner of the Birdwatch readers’ guano award) and Rory Stewart that they should do something about the unsustainable land use that is driven grouse shooting.

  1. Mark – when this petition closes, are you considering a new petition calling for a more broad assessment of upland management and the economic costs to society, and based around your arguments in Inglorious and quoting subsidies to upland landowners. I think the timing would be perfect given recent flooding. A petition about planting trees and stopping shooting beavers currently has 163,000 signatures so clearly the public are ripe for engaging in such issues. I feel it might be worth striking while the iron is hot.
