The recall petition to remove Peterborough's MP is almost at the halfway point.  There is no indication of how the petition is filling up and whether or not the 10% threshold required will be reached.  UK law prohibits forecasts of the outcome of recall petitions, so we won't know the answer to that question until after the petition has closed on May 1st.

If you are one of Fiona Onasanya's constituents please don't assume that this a foregone conclusion, this procedure has been enacted once before in the UK and on that occasion it fell short by 0.6%.  Don't allow apathy to let her off the hook.
