I wonder if it's worth launching a government e-petition to see if we can coax the new-ish Secretary of State for Cullture Media and Sport, Sajid Javid, into backing something that'll look like a winner for him.

It would need a 1,000-word explanation to go with it - which, perhaps, someone on this thread is knowledgeable enough to knock out.
