Bristolepetitions
Banksy has been held as a shining example of local eDemocracy for a couple of years now.  Until now it was the petition that had gathered the most signatories on a council ePetition site.

As of this morning a petition to get Bristol City Council to reject a plan to turn the most popular part of the Sustrans cycle network into a bus route has been signed by 6,687 6,703 (and climbing rapidly) people.

Of course this is only part of the story.  The Banksy artwork was saved for the city after the petition.  We’ll have to wait and see what happens with the cycle path.
