Both the UK and USA have websites where the populace can start e-petitions to highlight concerns on subjects as diverse as immigration, the health service, troops in Afghanistan and whether the US should build a Death Star by 2016. Er, pardon?
To quote from the petition: “By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense,”
Admittedly noble sentiments but a Death Star, really? Seems some people just can’t let go of the Star Wars programme.
I’m reminded at this point of the end of Dr Strangelove…
