do petitions really make any difference?

over 97000 on this one, and do i think itll make the slightest bit of difference?

Of course it won’t. No.10 will never pay any attention to it, it’s just a way to make people feel that their voices might be heard, a convenient and easy-to-ignore method to fill in the gaping democratic deficit that is currently present in the UK government.

But then I’m a cynic. Who knows, maybe pigs can fly.
