Democracy in Action: Control agenda style

It's a warm afternoon, so, instead of working, I though I'd surf on down to the wretched No 10 e-petition site (more, let's pretend to engage stuff) and make a little random trouble. However to my disappointment, I found:

Notice: Submission of new petitions will be closed until 7th September while the Prime Minister is away from Number 10. You can still sign any petition during this time

This is interesting and revealing, our glorious leader, comrade Brown (to whom: all hail) will only allow the ones that he quite likes. I suppose this is to prevent the 'juggle ice cream' and 'resign' ones? Abolishing boom and bust must have made him lose his sense of humour, mustn't it?
