Another wifi petition

Hot on the heels of TV’s Gadget Show organising an online petition for free wifi access, comes news of another. This new one features on the Government’s 10 Downing Street website, which has recently started an e-petitions section.

This new e-petitions service is explained by Downing Street as follows:

Petitions have long been sent to the Prime Minister by post or delivered to the Number 10 door in person. You can now both create and sign petitions on this website too, giving you the opportunity to reach a potentially wider audience and to deliver your petition directly to Downing Street.

The text of the free wifi access petition, posted by Kieran White, reads:

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to provide free wireless internet access in all major cities in the UK.”

If you want to sign the petition (and you probably do, because you’re reading this), you have to be a UK citizen and must sign before the closing date of 27th December 2006.
