Honestly unless your petition can get at lest 100,000 the government won't even look at it. I sign petitions for different things, some work many do not, even when say 200,000 people have signed up. Can't remember who it was???? But someone who works in government said on TV once, people love petitions but in reality they do nothing, just because you start one makes no difference to government policy. They get hundred a week for different things.
If it is a EU directive, then no hope!
You could try writing to your MP, if everyone did that it might help.
Donna - people are upset 'cos we can't (as individuals) send samples, swaps, splits or bottles even within the U.K. with immediate effect.
Different rules apply to registered R.M. business customers, but they currently may not ship scents overseas.
Most importantly, since there was no apparent publicised
advance notice, many people have lost out as R.M. are destroying their goods.
Totally agree about the petition - the Woodlands one seems to have helped, but was massive.
I guess we either have to stand up to this increasingly authoritarian attitude or just be quiet!
It doesn't only affect scent.
My M.P. wouldn't be much help!
E.U. countries seem to have different interpretations on what is permitted at present.
Until July, we won't really know the final situation - by then a lot of small businesses/start-ups will have gone under!
Ken - agree about a limit.
Wondering if it's to do with bombs 'though, since it has been so sudden?
Scentsucker - personally, I'd wait & see what happens in July.
We obviously don't know the full story.
