Five weeks and 106,000+ signatures.

Another week, and another 6-7000 signatures – solid but not enough, in my view. Weekends are always slow, and this week has seen a three-day weekend, and the sun shone for some of it too – always bad for petitions.

The future 1 April 2030 newspaper was a good attention raiser – every Westminster MP got a copy which is good.

There’s a lot of effort to be put into getting this petition into the area where it needs to be – around and beyond 250,000 signatures. That is easily, fairly easily, achievable if all the NGOs who claim to support it actually do something to mobilise their supporters. We should see some examples next week at least. If not, I may start crossing some logos off the image at the top of this post.

Meanwhile, please sign this petition and promote it to your friends as well please. Thank you.

  1. It works out as about 2000 signatures per backing organisation and some have more permanent staff members than that. 2000 votes from the RSPB out of the million plus members, volunteers and staff? Am I missing something here?

    1. Meanwhile ,Wildcat Haven are within sight of their Millionth signature, different timescale admittedly, but still.

    2. I guess that under GDPR rules they are only allowed to directly contact those members who have 'opted in' to receiving such communications but even so it is a poor rate of return. It would be nice to see a more vigorous use of their social media to push the petition for example.
