    I do think they should leave but I wouldn't officially petition them to, personally.

    I'm glad Julia Newton left. It's important to be brave and say no to the bullshit.

    I think Charles has made it clear he won't leave.
    Unless MEA members themselves vote or petition or just leave the MEA then it won't happen.

    I wouldn't mind them staying if they actually publically called Esther Crawley out for her bogus work and slandering talk, but they don't, so it looks like the MEA support her.

    Potentially would have been better on Change.org, which would have then accepted foreign signatures. The MEA were happy to accept foreign signatures on their petitions.

    38 Degrees info on signing.

    300 signatures in 3 months is underwhelming. Living in Germany I can't vote anyway. Don't know if I would.

    Petitions come, petitions go. I think the MEA would take more notice of members contacting them. They are a membership based organisation. It was a membership decision that Charles Shepherd stayed and Val Hockey left. He is very popular among members. Val Hockey didn't allow for that when she tried to squeeze CS out.

    I think she only resigned from the CMRC Board due to other work commitments. I suspect she's still a member of the Collaborative.
