Petition for a General Election

In today's Prime Ministers Questions where Cameron made Brown look such a phoney, Gordon's weak answer was that only 26 people on the PM petition site had signed up a general election in 2007 - it's now 1600 and growing.

Please help this grow further:

I should add - Not that I particularly favour DC but I am totally against Gordon being in power with his cronies without us, the public voting them there.

I am so pee'd off that we have an unelected prime minister. I know we vote for the party and not the leader, but I still think the government should let us decide whether GB is suitable or not to lead the country. I think not.

Both me and the wife have signed the petition :thumbsup:

Signed but there's only two months left of 2007.

Exact same thing happened with the replacement of Maggie Thatcher with Major and replacement of Wilson by Callaghan. All parties do it and all the opposition parties claim they don't have a mandate to govern etc.

They're all the same.....nothing particular about this lot...

Personally I'd like to see a petition for a minimum walking speed curfew. If you can't walk at a certain pace you're not allowed on the streets except between 9-12 and 2-4pm......

About as much chance of this happening as this petition making any difference.

Surely Gordon is a fairly good Prime Minister though. He seems a little more, erm, forceful than David Cameron and Tony Blair...

Forceful....pushy? Depends on your perspective....I'm not saying I wont vote him back in, I may, I'd just like to have my say, and for him to be voted in.


Do you not think he's looking a little childish and uncertain recently. Cameron is not looking any better mind.

The worst party leader at the moment has to be Alex Salmond - the man is a dangerous idiot (btw I'm a Scot)

Signed, also if you want to sign a petition for a referendum on the EU

[SIZE="2"]We all know that when we vote for MPs during a General Election, the party with the most sucessful candidates (assuming that there is a majority, no matter how small), will form a Government. it just so happens that the leader of the winning party gets to be Prime Minister. This is in contrast to American politics. They do vote for Presidential Candidates, one of which will become the President.

Now, back to the UK. Because the Labour Party are the party in power, they therefore have a (slight) parliamentary majority. This translates as support for the Government (most of the time). To force a change would require a 'vote of no confidence' in the present Government. Gordon Brown seems to have the confidence of the majority of the Parliament.

Therefore, I suspect that it is unlikely that an election will be called at a time not of Gordon Brown's choosing. During his time as Chancellor, he seemed to be a very cautious, prudent and non-risk-taker with the UK economy. After such a long wait to become the leader of the Labour Party and de facto, Prime minister, I don't think he will gamble all or nothing after a few months in the job. I think the media have over played the importance of this issue. Sure, he certainly thought about it, but surely any decision of that magnitude requires significant deliberation. To not give it serious thought would reveal him as an opportunistic gambler.

This does not mean that I am a GB or Labour fan, I just think that GB was dammed if he pretended not to think about it and dammed if he thought about and decided not to go for it.[/SIZE] :)

The problem is that David Cameron was brought in as the Conservative party's weapon against Tony Blair. But he doesn't work against Gordon Brown.

The Conservatives are looking forward to the next election, they'll get to choose a new leader. :giggle:

Oh Ducky be careful the wind does not knock you off the fence :giggle: :giggle:

I had wanted to see Lab take another term, only because they have made so many policies that are going to come into force over the next couple of years and with a recession coming, I wanted them to suffer the pain of the Country, but now I just want them out. GB is such (pause, drop jaw, suck in air) a wimp, he has lost the respect (pause, drop jaw, suck in air) of just about eberyone now.

The lies about the number of troops coming home when 250 were already back here arrrrggghhh get them out now, 10 years is enough of one party.

Best option out of the 4, other 3 were cookie cutter English party pawns. At least Mr Salmond cares about Scotland :roll:

Too bad that all the people who really know how to run the country are busy driving taxi cabs and cutting hair.

:x yeah - lets have an election and see if at least half the country can get off their fat a*** to vote. Democracy in action and at it's glorious best - sorry but don't tell me no-one is worth voting for - at least go and damage the paper or vote for the monster raving looonies - if enough folk did that, I'd be inclined to believe in the apathy towards politicians - but no - we're too lazy and too greedy to do anything but complain :x

Sorry for my rant - just had to get it off my chest - really fed up with party politics - they are all the same - better stop before I blow a gasket
