Petitions

There are a few petitions out there that are in need of some support, I have linked to most of these before but here are some fresh links and hopefully some fresh impetus.

1.  Steve Green has started a 10 Downing Street petition HERE after seeing an advert of television.

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Stop wasting taxpayer's money on climate change propaganda designed to frighten our children.
2. I started the Daniel Hannan petition over on Voice Of The Resistance looking for support to urge Daniel Hannan to stand for the Westminster Parliament.
"We the people who leave our name in the comments field do so as to indicate that we share this same opinion. It is our wish to encourage Daniel Hannan in the strongest and most emphatic means available to us to stand for Election to the UK Parliament at the next General Election so as to join his "The Plan" co-author Doug Carswell in leading and influencing the next Government and the UK towards the ideas espoused in "The Plan" and from on his blog"

3.  There is also a pan-EU petition against nominating Tony Blair as President of the EU, which is proving popular but needs all the signatures possible.
We, European citizens of all origins and of all political persuasions, wish to express our total opposition to the nomination of Tony Blair to the Presidency of the European Council.
4.  Inspired by Ron Paul I wrote this piece about the need to have an audit of the Federal Reserve, and linked to this PETITION on Downing Street which is sorely in need of some support.
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Openly and Publically Insist That The United States Government Conduct The First Ever Public Audit Of The Federal Reserve.
Please sign these today if you have not already done so, and let me know in the comments if I have missed any that need attention.

I'm afraid I can't sign the Tony Blair one, I think Blair as President would be a good thing.

But before you choke on your coffee and think that I've lost my marbles here's my reasoning:

Blair obviously is disliked by the Tories, but also by large sections of the Labour Party (despite him winning 3 elections for them). So just when Labour thought they had got rid of him, up he pops unelected and unaccountable in the EU.

All of which means the EU will become even more unpopular across the political spectrum in the UK.

Also crucially, Blair is very divisive across Europe - in large part due to the Iraq war - so lots of Europeans will resent him being there unelected etc as well. The Irish - a neutral country (well until Lisbon's ratified) - will have a warmonger / criminal as their President. Bet they'll love that!

It'll be another stick with which to beat the EU and the more unpopular it gets, the quicker its demise.

Blair for President I say!

Except one thing, Boiling Frog - the Tories don't hate Blair, they venerate him - Gove is a known worshipper, and Cameron mimics him no end
