Urgent! Fwd this petition NOW!!!!

Sarah Kennedy was talking about this proposed faith school scheme on Radio 2. Apparently there is only one month left to register your objection to the ‘Send Your Kid to a Faith School’ law.
The petition is on the 10 Downing St website but they didn’t tell anybody about it. Therefore at the time of Sarah’s comments only 250,000 people had signed it and 750,000 signatures are required for the goverment to at least take any notice.
Once you’ve given your details (you don’t have to give your full address, just house number and postcode will do), they will send you an email with a link in it. Once you click on that link, you’ll have signed the petition.
Tony Blair’s proposal to introduce faith schools for all children will mean every family having to register a religion as part of an overall ID scheme. If you have a child of school age, you will HAVE to register a religion and send your child to the appropriate faith school; refusniks and atheists can probably expect prosecution.
If you are concerned about this Orwellian plan and want to stop this constant bashing of those who believe that religion does not belong in schools, please sign the petition on No 10’s new website(link below) and pass this on to as many people as possible.
Sign up if you value your freedom and democratic rights!

Hey, if the same tactic got a million signatures on an anti-road-pricing petition….. 😉

  1. The problem with that petition is that it doesn’t *say* it’s to counteract any particular law; it says it’s to abolish *all* faith schools. Well, I’m glad to oppose the teaching of creationism, and I certainly don’t support the idea of introducing faith schools into the state system or requiring parents to register a religion (how very Irish of Britain), but abolishing *all* faith schools is never going to happen, and I’m not even sure that it should – private schools have their roles to play. Having a badly drafted petition doesn’t, I think, help the cause any.


  2. Of course the petition doesn’t say anything about a law – neither did the road-pricing petition. As I pointed out in the precious post, the email that went out with that petition link implied that road-pricing and car-tracking devices were about to become law. Nonsense, of course, but people believed it and clicked in their hundreds of thousands, resulting in huge news coverage.
    To be perfectly honest, I’m hoping to do the same thing with this petition link – i have no connection with the petiion or its organisers BTW.
