Paper’s Petition Goes Online At No. 10

A local newspaper has won the right to display its petition on Downing Street’s e-petitions website.

Press Gazette reports that the East London Advertiser has mounted a campaign to prevent the sale of an East End history library and archives centre and is fighting in print and online.

And part of that web-based work now also includes the inclusion of its petition on the Number 10 website, directly appealing to the prime minister to help save the historic library.

Ted Jeory, advertising deputy editor at the Advertiser, said of the paper’s success in securing a place on the PM’s e-petitions: “I’m not sure there was any pressure from our side that made them crack, but it’s interesting they only took the decision after the PM went on holiday.”
