TheEye avoids 10 Downing Street petitions as they only seem to be another way of gathering addresses and emails.

They are just ignored anyway.

See you at the next Biased-BBC QT chat!

Agreed, but I do not give my real address, and I can just delete anything that comes through from Downing Street on my email.

Definately see you on the QT chat, I used to hate watching QT, now I really look forward to it!
