Welcome to Nanny Town

Don’t let the theft of intellectual property by our sorry excuse for a government go unresisted.

    Whilst I agree wholeheartedly with the aims of ‘Hands off our Packs’ why do they require so much personal information? That is why I will not sign it.

      Not being involved with ‘Hands off our Packs’, I can’t speak for them. Based on what I have read, my understanding of the matter is that the information of anyone who signs up to the petition will be included will be included in HooP’s submission to the ‘consultation’.

      You can choose to submit your views directly if you so wish but you will be required to enter exactly the same information on page 1 of that as well.

      I assume therefore that this is to ascertain who is – and isn’t – genuine as I can’t imagine that HooPs particularly want the government to be able to dismiss it in quite the same way as the Chartist’s 1848 Petition, for example.
