    I sincerely doubt this was opened by Amber Rudd. Whoever did is now in trouble.

      The way the petition works is that the relevant e-mail address is sent a link, and without the link being accessed, the petition remains unsigned.

      If Amber Rudd did not sign, someone with her e-mail access did it for her.

        Umm… surely it just means the signer has access whatever email address was entered into the relevant field on the form?

        I don’t think that it would be impossible to fill in my name as “Mike Cunningham”, with my own email address, and then confirm that I am indeed you when the email rolls in.

        It’s a little hard to read the JSON output by eye, but as the first 40+ signatures now appear to be “MPs” I would suggest that someone is taking the piss.

    I hope this includes Treason as well.

    I don’t actually agree with the death penalty while we have a corrupt court system and a police state.
