At the time of writing, the petition calling for a no-confidence vote in David Cameron has more than 113,000 signatures and is gaining around 1,000 per hour.
It must now be considered for Parliamentary debate – even though the government never bothered to respond to it when it reached 10,000 signatures, despite that being the rule. For the record, the wait for a response has been 101 days so far. And counting…
Cameron won’t be ousted, even if there is a debate and vote – but a high number of signatures on the petition can’t fail to make an impression.
If you haven’t signed already, the petition for a no confidence vote in David Cameron may be found here.
MPs could be forced to debate a no-confidence vote in the British Prime Minister, David Cameron.
A petition, which accuses him of causing “devastation for the poorest in society for the last 5 years”, is closing in on the 100,000 signatures required for a parliamentary debate.
It adds: “We cannot afford another 5 years of Tory rule, with the recent welfare reform that will cause nothing but immense poverty in the UK.”
Petitions that pass 10,000 signatures receive a response from the Government, while any petition attracting more than 100,000 names is considered for debate in Westminster Hall, the overflow room for parliamentary debate.
However the Government has yet to respond to the petition, despite it easily passing the 10,000 threshold with more than 97,000 signatures as of Thursday afternoon.
