That’s really interesting and amazing! I wonder who the person who started the petition is and whether he is connected with the BHPS and if not, if they know about it. Interestingly the numbers on the parliament petition have started increasing a bit this afternoon for some reason. Sadly the thunderclap over the weekend didn’t seem to have a huge effect, unless today is delayed action to it. Have you been in contact with BHPS to enquire? Do you have to be on social media to sign that petition or just have an email?
As you say, if they can get so many to sign, we should be able to as well. But it has to increase the effect of the gov. petition. I would just say, that the wording on it seems far more easily understandable, though.
