Don’t Forget the #wowpetition!

Would you like to annoy this person? See below!

There’s been an astounding response to the petition demanding that Iain Duncan Smith back up his claim that he could live on £53 a week if he had to.

It’s a semi-jocular petition, but it has already had an impact. IDS was rattled enough to declare the petition a mere “stunt“, missing the irony that his comment, that inspired the petition, was no less a stunt.

At the time of writing this, the petition has been signed by 420,233 people. This is very embarrassing for IDS (though he would not regard it as shameful  as he doesn’t seem to have a sense of shame) and I hope many more people sign. (To do so, click here.)

If you’ve signed that one, why not sign the Wow petition? It also has the potential to embarrass IDS, but this one can do that in the heart of Parliament. It has already passed the mark where there has to be an official response from the DWP, but if we can push it to 100,000 signatures, that triggers a debate in the House of Commons.

It isn’t any more difficult to sign than the other one. The only extra thing you need to do is to click on the link in the email you’ll be sent. (If you can’t see it in your inbox, check your spam/junk folder.)

To sign the WOW petition, click here, and fill in the boxes. It’s easy!
