That question puts the cart before the horse: the petition tells you whether you've got the support... But fortunately you don't need any support to start a petition - you just have to go to https://petition.parliament.uk/.
I shall watch future developments with interest! ;-)
It being that time on a Saturday Evening when all good men try to distance themselves from the Television, I'll attempt to respond to your postulate. No - its rather like dangling a carrot in front of the horse to see if will move. If it had galloped - as determined by the number of recs, I would have moved forward to the petition, but I fear, apart from yourself, no one else has expressed any interest. Yet I was sure I was on the correct board - Pedant's Place - in a stream where there was a considerable interest in all things electrical and electronic. Maybe I should have attached to my planned petition an additional clause - the incorrect use of the word RAM. In a computer, tablet, or smart phone there are typically two types of memory - Read Only Memory (ROM) and Read Write Memory (RWM). Both are Random Access Memories (RAM). Yet the world almost universally uses RAM for RWM, when it is equally applicable to ROM. So the additional clause would be to replace RAM by RWM. Do you think this will fly (or gallop)? Your consideration would be much appreciated.
