    It's a very important issue, but Marks and Spencers are refusing to solve the problem :sad:

    Link to petition

    The Percy Pig gift bag is currently only available in a set costing £30. In a recent survey, 100% of Percy Pig collectors answered they already have the other items contained in the set. This petition is to persuade Marks and Spencer that this is an unfair practice designed to promote the needs of initial buyers of Percy Pig items over those of long term collectors.

    What is Percy Pig?
    Percy is a pig. He's a very old pig, in that he has recently celebrated his 25th birthday. He was created by Marks and Spencer. He is mainly known for starring in a variety of sweet products, such as original Percy Pigs, vegetarian Percy Pigs, and spin off products such as Rosy Noses and phizzy pig tails. There is also merchandise available, most of which is limited edition and thus difficult to get. Marks and Spencers are adding to the problem by creating new products (the Percy Pig gift bag) and only selling these with old products, for a vast mark up. This is causing a problem to Percy Pig collectors, who would like the new product but obviously already have the old products in their collection.This petition is aiming to show that this is unfair to long standing Percy Pig fans, who should have the opportunity to add new products to their collections.

    When I first read it was about Percy Pig I thought the petition was set up by a Muslim to have him banned because they found him offensive.
