The Press Complaints Commission has failed, as a self-regulatory body, e.g., by the continual and scientifically unjustified stigmatisation of schizophrenics in tabloids of different political hues. Self-regulation was deemed inadequate for the police - it is also inadequate for the press.

A previous attempt at a petition of this nature was disqualified by the Downing Street website on the perhaps somewhat spurious grounds of time (see http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/PressCompltsAuth/).

We the undersigned petition Parliament to set up an independent Press Complaints Authority.
