    Petition count is now about 1,440. FANTASTIC WORK PEOPLE! Thanks for spreading the message and all the support. You make it all worthwhile.

    Take my love, take my land
    Take me where I cannot stand
    I don't care, I'm still free
    You can't take the sky from me
    Take me out to the black
    Tell them I ain't comin' back
    Burn the land and boil the sea
    You can't take the sky from me
    There's no place I can be
    Since I found Serenity
    But you can't take the sky from me...

    I went there to sign the petition and it said only British Citizens or Residents could sign the Petition. But good luck on it. IF they are banning all swords, I think that is rediculous. All the average person wants to do is have a nice collection to admire and possibly study or train with. That is a worthwhile hobby in my opinion. I don't understand the British Government.
    What do I know of cultured ways, the gilt, the craft and the lie?
    I, who was born in a naked land and bred in the open sky.
    The subtle tongue, the sophist guile, they fail when the broadswords sing;
    Rush in and die dogs--I was a man before I was a king!

    Don't just sign the petition, respond to the consultation

    If you have signed the petition (or even if you have not), please take the time to respond to the consultation. It is very important that we get as many objections to this legislation as possible.

    I have put some info about this and previous consultations on another thread here at SFI.

    BTW, there is no restriction on who can respond to the consultation (as opposed to the petition) - UK resident or not.
