Home Forums Champions’ chat 38 Degrees Petition etc. Reply To: 38 Degrees Petition etc.



I think 38 degrees petitions (along with other campaigning groups like Avaaz) automatically increase the target once the previous one is reached.

The logic being that if a target is reached, that acts as a disincentive for people coming to it afterwards, so by increasing the target there’s always an incentive to sign it. 200,000 sounds a lot but it is only 0.3% of the UK population of 65m people.
