So the government is experimenting with e-petitions and you can now sign up against software patents on their website. Is this the next step on the road to public voting on major issues. I hope not. We, the public, are far too selfish to be allowed to vote on major issues. It will end up a state that is run by the large media companies rather than an elected government as they will have much more control over the population than boring politicians. What we have now may not be the best but it has to be better than reducing it all down to a big brother style tele-vote!
