Petition o' the day, or slumming it with Asda

A petition has appeared at Attention Whore Central supposedly emanating from the CEO of Asda, one Andy Bond. Technically he terms himself 'CEO of Asda of Asda', a title not known to Burke's or the Almanach de Gotha, I believe.

Anyway, the publicity stunt petition is to reduce VAT on fruit juice and the like. Is Asda, and ultimately, Walmart so useless at lobbying that they have to fall back on this sort of nonsenses, or is this, as I suspect, just some idiocy that Bond - if it is he - can brag about in the Asda Gazette or whatever the staff newsletter is called?

Meanwhile, the petition has already racked up quite a few signatures, with the internal comms team perhaps having e-mailed head office that not signing would not be a career move.
