Supporter David Bennun, from Brighton, summed up the mess that is online petitions rather brilliantly:
I cannot cope with the idea of people thinking things I do not think,
believing things I do not believe, or reporting things I do not agree
with. They must be stopped, and furthermore everybody whose views are
not in accord with mine, and whose actions do not support the things I
want to happen, should be sacked from their job immediately. Only
then, when everybody is doing exactly what I want, will we achieve the
fair, equal and pluralistic society for which I so ardently clamour.
