England Deserves its Own Domain!
Heard the one about the Englishman, the Scotsman, the Welshman and the internet?
Trouble is, it's not that funny. Not if you're the Englishman, anyway.
For many years the UK's online entity has been represented by the co.uk domain extension. The Welsh and the Scots have been campaigning for their own country-specific domains .cym and .sco respectively, despite not being classed as independent countries.
But what about the English? Er... well... hmmm. A deafening silence. Until now.
We believe that we - the English - should also be allowed our own independent voice on the internet and show our patriotism through our choice of domain name.
To do this, We're collecting signatures on our online petition so we can lobby ICANN (the people in charge of internet domain names) to make .eng available.
Please sign the petition so we can make sure a corner of the Internet remains Forever England.
Sign The Petition!

|Scotland has got .scot (and a parliament, first minister, government and anthem...). Scotland is part of the UK. England is a proud historic nation, is bigger than Scotland, plays sport in its own right so has just as much right in principle to its own domain extension (and the other things above) and there are more of us to us it. It should also be considered that the Equalties Act 2010 defines 'nationality' as part of the protected charactistic of 'race' in section 9 and in section 13 states that unlawful 'Direct discrimination'occurs if: '(1)A person (A) discriminates against another (B) if, because of a protected characteristic, A treats B less favourably than A treats or would treat others.' Section 13 states that unlawful 'Indirect discrimination'occurs if: (1)A person (A) discriminates against another (B) if A applies to B a provision, criterion or practice which is discriminatory in relation to a relevant protected characteristic of B's.|
