What an excellent idea.

The 38 Degrees petition site is hosting a petition calling for the suspension of Conservative MPs who are suspected of having overspent their expenses in the 2015 general election campaign – and under-declared them.

This is a criminal offence and anybody found guilty could face up to a year in prison.

No less than 33 Tory MPs are alleged to have committed expenses fraud in this manner – more than the Conservative majority in the House of Commons.

So they’re not going to vacate their seats willingly.

The argument for them to go is a good one, though: Until their innocence is proven (or not) every decision in which they take part is questionable.

That includes every vote won by the Conservative Government since the May 2015 general election.

So it is in David Cameron’s best interests for these MPs to be suspended from Parliament until such time as the police conclude investigations – or after the verdict is reached, should any of them go to trial.

He won’t see it that way.

So it’s up to you to persuade him.

To: Speaker of the House of commons

As the police have started to investigate allegations of election fraud by Conservative MPs during the 2015 General election.
We the undersigned demand that those suspected MPs be suspended from parliament for the period of those investigations.
MPs who may be guilty of fraud should be forbidden from voting on the legislation brought before parliament.
We call upon the speaker to immediately suspend those members from the house of commons.
