The Knife is indebted to Sebastian Payne at the Telegraph blogs.
He has artfully pointed out that not only has Guido’s e-petition on restoring the death penalty only achieved a weedy 18,000 signatures, it’s actually polling far less than the opposite petition, to maintain the ban.

Or, to paraphrase Sarah Palin: how’s that death penalty changey stuff workin’ out ?
