I wonder if this is a missed opportunity to make a case why Gordon is better than Jeremy would be, given his support (or lack thereof) maybe a case was needed, or is just easy to dismiss the trivial petition independent of the fact that half a million are willing to sign it? I'm not sure, of course there was no way that the petition would be listened to or taken seriously, that was not the point, but maybe rather than showing their humorous side it could have made more of a case. Besides all this, why did Gordon not make an appearance and show his human and humorous side, perhaps an interview with Jeremy asking if he would want the job. It just lacks something and it could have been so much better and gained a lot more positive publicity, just a thought!
AND why can't you post a comment on the video on the No 10 YouTube channel or for that matter any of their videos: ah interactivity and engagement, or rather free advertising, Web 1.0 for beginners!
