      I've signed, but all that legislation does is require local authorities to apply to The Secretary of State for permission to dispose of allotments, and Eric Pickles keeps approving nearly all applications for disposal.

      A petition to get rid of Eric Pickles might be better.

        Lots, they won't part with anything that's actually theirs; but they're quite happy to sell off anything that isn't actually theirs to anyone for a proffit

        I wouldn't put it past any political party in power to sell off anything they can get away with.
