24 Hours to stop the big brother law

To David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Theresa May:

The last time this was mooted in Parliament it failed precisely because of strong public opposition. Our call to Cameron, Clegg and Home Secretary Theresa May can protect our privacy and save the Internet. We have only 24 hours left before the public input process closes -- sign the petition to beat back big brother, then forward it widely and all our voices will be sent to the review together on Thursday:
