Before you read this week’s update, we would like to ask you to sign two Parliamentary petitions, and then ask ten of your friends to sign too. If we get enough signatures, the Government must respond to these petitions and Parliament may even have to debate them.

The first petition calls for regulation of social media companies, requiring them to remove hatred swiftly. A new law to do this is already planned, but as things stand, the new law will not come in for around four years. We are asking that the new law is passed by next summer. We have waited long enough for social networks to be forced to act. Sign the first petition now here ([link removed][UNIQID]) .

The second petition seeks reforms to the process by which honours (such as MBEs) are removed, and that they are automatically removed from racists such as Wiley. Sign the second petition now here ([link removed][UNIQID]) .

Please ask at least ten friends to sign too. You may wish to use this simple e-mail template
