They’re not listening

Who aren’t? The coalition government:

The government’s first attempt at crowdsourcing its coalition programme has ended without a single government department expressing a willingness to alter any policy… The coalition asked the public to respond to its programme on government websites. It received 9,500 replies online.

However, its formal responses, published on each website, shows Whitehall regarded the process largely as an endorsement of what it was already doing.

In cases where most of the submissions conflicted with existing policy, the department simply restated the policy.
