Rejected petition Stop letting people make stupid petitions
There have been some awful petitions for pointless things lately, they should require prior approval
This petition was rejected
Why was this petition rejected?
It’s not clear what the petition is asking Ministers or States Assembly to do.
There already is a "prior approval" process - as this rejection demonstrates - so it's not clear if you would like that to be changed to make it harder to submit e-petitions (which would require a definition of what makes a thing pointless or a petition awful) or if you are now content that there is, in fact, an approval stage.
We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
