Almost one million people have signed a petition asking the BBC to keep Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson on the programme. Yet many other petitions seem to garner little support.

Do petitions really achieve what they set out to do? What makes a successful petition and why would people support it?

Social commentator Mal Fletcher looks at the issue in this interview with BBC radio’s John Foster.

Mal, you are the man! Great insights on how to stay focused on the truth in a "post-Christian" society and present the message of Jesus in a relevant way to secularized Europeans. Keep it up!

I was quite surprised to see the EDGES website - a human-transparent site with an inclination towards God. I really like the way you are posting your brilliant reports about issues. Keep up your good work.

I often check out your recommended reading section, which includes some excellent books. There's a new title which I highly recommend: 'Simply Christian' by N.T. (Tom) Wright (Bishop of Durham)...
