Have a petition. Hey, I’m feeling generous – have three.
by Aleksands Halamins (rejected)I am sick and tired of teachers using “sick pay” advantages not to come and teach at school. Moreover, we as a taxpayer finance these sick off days and instead we have to pay the supply teacher as well as the teacher who is “ill”. Making most state school teachers self-employed will make them realize that that’s the way it goes: if you don’t come to school to teach – you wont get paid, as simple as that! Making the teachers self-employed will have its own disadvantages, however as a self-employed you will pay less tax and also you could make claims. Making the teachers self-employed will improve their attendance. Furthermore, this decision will 100% improve education in BRITAIN!
Yeah! Teachers don’t come to school at all! All they do is lounge about at home watching Diagnosis Murder and raking in the cash. This’ll teach ‘em.
tell the electorate why he should not go the say way as the North Korean politician who has recently been executed for causing a financial disaster in his country.by keith jones of taxpaying pensioner with no political nor religious affiliation (rejected)Gordon Brown has created the worst financial situation in the history of people living on this island. There has to be some merit in considering what horrendous fate should befall somebody who has done more damage to this country than any other single person, living or dead.
Keith Jones there, politely asking the government to think about cutting Gordon Brown’s head off.
by Mrs Theresa Thomas (rejected)This is an official petition to have Frankie Boyle return to the quiz show ‘Mock The Week’. Frankie is an asset to the quiz show and British lives are not the same with out him.
The government have officially rejected your official petition, because it’s officially crap.

I guess the ePetition team has a backlog to get through, because there have been a ton of rejected petitions posted today.

Now that the ePetition site is ore or less closed for the election, every day is Reject Rednesday! But especially today, which is Rednesday. Anyway, hello.
by John Mckay (rejected)We urge the prime minister to ban the afformentioned TV shows urgently as they are encouraging an entire generation of young people to be stupid.
These show’s give young people the message that complaining about your feelings for hours on end is somehow socially acceptable, as is overreacting to fairly insignifigant events. They encourage young people to talk about nonsense while at the same time making fun of people who talk about anything even remotely interesting.
Please ban it now
I don’t think it’s the young people who are being made stupid. (more…)

by Mr RedmanMy 3 year old stopped eating because of government adverts regarding obesity. He still won’t eat properly and is too skinny. My child cried for an hour because he saw a child drinking dirty water in a charity advert during Kids TV. My child cried because tigers were dying out – he is 3 Years old. If children aren’t allowed to see adverts about fast food why are they allowed to see this?? My child does not have a VISA card or a MASTERCARD or a Debit Card of any kind so why are guilt tripping adverts aimed at him when he is so young and impressionable when they do nothing but damage his innocence!!! This is just ridiculous!
I’ve seen charity ads. They don’t seem like they were aimed at kids to me. Still, if you will insist on using the television as a babysitter then this sort of thing is going to happen, isn’t it?
by robert asvadi
May I ask how can we justify restricting advertisng of some foods , by brand names , before certain time, as it may encourage children and others to eat supposedly unhealthy food, but try to encourage ordinar people like you and me, to gamble their life away and cause misery to themselevs and thier families, and who do you think has to pick up the pieces, Tax payer and goverment!
Because adults are supposedly able to make informed, sensible decisions, while children are not.
Also, your last name makes you sound like a Doctor Who villain.

stop describing members of the public who question the veracity of Anthropogenic Global Warming as climate change deniers.by John Catley
The Prime Minister has chosen to give his full backing and support to the case for Anthropogenic Global Warming. That is his right as an individual and that right is part of the constitution of this country. The Prime Minister does not have the right to insult millions of British people by describing them as “deniers”, a particularly hateful and emotive insult, because they do not share his view. Recently Chief Scientific Adviser, Sir John Beddington, said “I don’t think it’s healthy to dismiss proper scepticism. Science grows and improves in the light of criticism. There is a fundamental uncertainty about climate change prediction that can’t be changed.” In spite of this, and significant evidence to show that there is indeed much in doubt, the Prime Minister continues issue his insults.
There’s a difference between “I’m not sure if climate change is happening” and “It’s definitely not happening.” One is stating a feeling of uncertainty, and the other is outright denial – and when I say “denial” I don’t mean the psychological “I’m not listening la la la la” denial, I mean the literal denial. Most people labelled as “clime change deniers” aren’t raising questions about whether it’s going on or not – they’re outright saying it’s not happening. The label is apt.
by Matt Withers (rejected)
We the undersigned call upon the Prime Minister to use his considerable influence to lobby the BBC to replace the departing presenter Jonathan Ross with his elder brother Paul.
An experienced television and radio presenter, journalist and media personality, Paul has the warmth, grace and gravitas to host Friday Night, Flim 2010 and the Radio 2 programme, as shown by his successful stint on The Paul Ross Show (ITV, 1997-98), as well as in his current position on BBC Sussex and BBC Surrey.
In addition, Paul has largely avoided the controversy which has dogged his younger brother Jonathan (except for an incident in November 2006 when he announced the Eastenders Christmas storyline on-air). Paul could restore some much-needed dignity to the BBC.
Paul Ross has the warmth, grace and gravitas of Ben Shephard with a hangover. There is a shining good reason he isn’t on television much.
I asked my brother Paul to mock this for me but he said no.

From adverts such as "We Buy Any Car" to "Tool Workshop" me and many others I know feel that the songs that constantly burst onto our televisions many times a day disruptive and extremely aggravating.
I feel the same way about Hollyoaks.
And it’s Tool Station.

Kevin Chapple feels very strongly about porn being available on freeview.
by Kevin Chapple
As Freeview is a service that is beamed into more or less everyone’s home now I ask the Government to shut down the Adult channels that run late at night until 5.30am. The channels are not only a money making scam but by what is shown corrupts minds. I am especially concerned about children in their rooms up in the early hours watching this. Writing to Ofcom they tell me 3 of the channels are licensed by the Nederlands and 2 regulated by Ofcom. It is about time action was taken against these channels now before we end up with dozens of them.
So strongly, in fact, that he submitted two petitions about it.
by Kevin Chapple
Freeview tv is hosting adult porn channels which automatically tune in to everybodies home from midnight to 5.30am There are now about 6 of them running with models hardly leaving anything to the imagination. I am concerned it can corrupt kids in their bedrooms up late as well as adults. I ask that these money making scams be taken off public Freeview tv
I think the real loser here is the government’s ePetition administrators. Well done, team!

Mr Brown and all other government deparments/quangos – please stop wasting taxpayers cash on pointless TV and radio adverting.
Yeah! Stop using a medium almost everybody has immediate access to as a method of telling us things!
by Hamish Scott
Military adverts on the television are inaccurate depictions, that show the military as being a lot less dangerous than it really is. People who join the military will have that image in their head, and will make it even worse for them when they realise how terrible it really is.
Have we been watching the same advertisements?
by Mr Sydney Miller of none
Television, more than any media, is the most destructive medium present.Single handedly, is practically responsible for the deterioration in society we are seeing today.
Jerry Mander, ex TV executive wrote a book I consulted and I agree with his conclusions, this is not an impulse petition but carefully considered after years and consulting experienced people who have seen the development of TV.
Tv is biased for war over peace, superficiality over depth, and conflict over agreement.
It is biased for dissatisfation over satisfaction, anger over tranquility and jelousy over acceptance.
Also it promotes competition over co-operation, materialism over spirituality.
In 1961, Newton Minnow, chair of the US communications commission called TV a vaste wasteland, now his opinion is unchanged.
It is solely responsible for envy, greed violence, destruction, by promoting drama, exaggeration hyperbole, and must no longer exist in a civilised society, by not banning it its evil effects will continue and real people will suffer its sinister and malignant way it spreads its influence, its power must not be underestimated for societal breakdown
TELEVISION IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ENVY.
