Half a million people call for an early general election

Almost six times as many people as voted Liz Truss into 10 Downing Street are demanding an early general election in the hope of having her ejected.

Parliament will have to debate the petition because it has topped 100,000 signatories – and this may create a problem for Truss, who does not have the full support of her party in Parliament (especially after the godawful stink she has made in just four weeks).

The call for an election has been echoed by former Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries.

She tweeted that there was ‘widespread dismay’ at the prime minister – and we can conclude that she meant among her fellow Conservative MPs.

The government responded to the petition on September 20, saying nothing would change: “A change in the leader of the governing party does not trigger a general election – this has been the case under governments of successive political colours.”

But that isn’t the issue now.

The issue now is that the UK’s current – unelected – leadership has crashed the economy and cannot accept its role in having done so, and millions of people think it is time for a new administration.

    We can’t really have an election now as the Tory government has destabilised the country. They are bad and unrepentant in their evil doings but do we need a civil insurrection when in a year’s time say we can have an orderly changing of the guard and a more responsive government in charge. We must think beyond the personal however much we are suffering and think of the country and keeping the peace. Let’s not blow the country up because of the economic illiteracy of the prime minister and her cabinet of clowns. We’ve been through worse times so we must keep calm and get rid of them in orderly fashion at the next general election in their hundreds. Think of that prospect and the liberation from fear the decimation of their MP ranks will bring. We need a safe Labour government and a loyal Liberal Democrat opposition.

    Dear Mike Sivier, an early general election would just bring in a Blairite Labour government, that has now begun to gain rich Tory donors.

    Admin Grey Swans seeks, please, volunteer political admin to give us Corbyn’s legacy and the Grey Vote policies learned by us 1950s ladies campaigning since 2013 for the vital Grey Vote from age 50 to 100 plus. The Grey Vote is the last age group sufficiently to turn out to vote.

    Over 50s (saves all ages) party is the only one who could beat Labour. It is easy to beat the Tories, we see.

    All former executive members who have been purged out of Labour have the knowledge to bring the party into existence, which is oven ready to run in an election once that registration is done, which you know is only the cost of a cheap 2nd hand car, shared between the handful of people necessary to form the party.
