Want to support an E-Petition on wild-camping in England/Wales?

For those unaware but interested in getting actively involved there's an E-Petition currently seeking support on the 10 Downing Street website:

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to legalise wild camping in England and Wales

Currently without the landowners consent it is illegal to wild camp on the moors, mountains, National Parks and MOD land. It is time to give people the same rights as those given North of the Border in Scotland to allow them to wild camp in these places without threat of legal action"

It's only just been listed and will need all the votes it can if it is to get any serious credence.

Deadline to sign up is 24 May 2008, and you must be a British citizen or resident to sign

It's quite quick and simple to do.

Please spread the word if you wish - it will need all the support it can get if it's to at least get those in power interested

Personally I'm not too sure whether the UK Gov's E-Democracy is a Good Idea. Or not. But I'm sure if its not tried then nothing will happen.

(You may also find this cross-posted on other UK Outdoor Sites to get maximum publicity)

Nice one Darren for getting it all going

Edit: And Kate over on Outdoors Magic tells me there is similar (and seperate) activity for the consideration of the Welsh Assembly. Just for Wales obviously.
