Another new website can’t cope.

The newly launch website to handle petitions for a parliamentary debate is suffering from overload:

You didn’t really want to sign did you?

I think those first two lines sum up a lot really.

High demand in the early days was predictable of course. The problem is if it can’t cope with petitions with publicity as they come up.

PS I got this as I was trying to sign one of the petitions against the reintroduction of the death penalty as advertised over at LibDem Voice.

Update: Sorry for an update so soon after posting but the site started working (briefly).  I think there must be more fundamental problems than usage levels given the low number of signatures on the petitions.  The highest is about 1800 (at the time of writing) for Martin Shapland’s anti-death penalty petition above.
