i9's an online petition, just click on the link and it will take you straight there :) i know it's pretty basic, but the idea is to generate real interest in the problem and hopefully some whitehall mandarin will do something about it.
EDITED to add: the link is on the 1st page :lol:

yeah i clicked on the link and saw no real information over what was happening in the real world.

i aint being funny but if you want to plead a case with government imo some facts may help just think an explanation may help you plaed a well deserved case.

whatever the wording, i think the government should do something about the lack of training in this field. i never professed to be an expert petition writer, however, i don't see you or anyone else out there doing something about it. if you think i am barking up the wrong tree, why not write another with the wording the way you want to see it? the way i look at it, it may not be the best way to word a petition, but at least i am trying to do something about it which is more than i can say about you or anyone else whos supposedly cares about fish keeping. of the more than 500 people who have looked at this post, there are only 17 signatures. i notice you didn't add yours. instead of sitting on the fence like so many others, why not add your name, if everyone added their name, at least the powers that be will /may look at the problem in greater depth. choosing your path will lead to absolutely nothing. you may not agree with the wording, but by ignoring it completely you are just prolonging the situation. start another petition and i will gladly sign it.
i have noticed your comments about "wrong" info given by people on this site, just because it doesn't go with what you believe it doesn't mean it is wrong. and, to make matters worse, you went off the deep end only because you had not read the thread from start to finish. get off your high horse and actually do something about it instead of just criticising those of us who want to help.

no no no no no i fully agree with what your doing and tbh i damm well admire you for it !!!

ive not signed it as of yet as i wanted more info which was why i asked.

i fully agree that theres alot of lfs out there miss-selling fish i was merely askin what info you are going to supply to our wonderfull government and what facts you have to argue your case?

im in full agreeance with you only have to look at the fish ive took in too see that.

i was just curious what imformation you have to throw in there faces to make them actually get off there ass polished chairs and actually listen.

by no means was i trying to knock what you are doing anything i can do to help i will gladly do was more curiosity than anything

ok, ok. so instead of 500 people it is probably around 100 - 150, my point remains. there are only 17 people on here who were bothered enough to add their name.

:lol: yep same, I tend to look at a thread every time there is a new post, so that I can learn more, and add to anything already said :wink: So there may not even be 100... if we've all looked so many times :oops: Having seen the figures, and doing some maths (my head hurts now :lol: ) 666 views / 28 posts, makes 23.75, which may well mean that there aren't so many people that have looked at the thread :(
