Just been having a look through this wonderful idea of open government and happened upon the rejected petitions part of the site. Always worth a look, for a laugh if anything else.

Whilst perusing at my leisure, having a quiet chortle, I fell across this little gem.....

We the undersigned petition the prime minister to just go now

It was proposed by one Guido Fawkes of the Gunpowder plotters ( I imagine a made up name). This in itself is amusing, the reply is astounding

This petition has been rejected because:

It contained party political materialAdditional information about this rejection:
This has been rejected on the grounds of including Party political material. It also relates to an ongoing criminal investigation.

An On-going criminal investigation????? Are the met really THAT slow?????
