There is a new petition on 38Degrees to try to get a usable “Recall” system working. I signed it, and was immediately asked to spread it around.
To be of any value at all, the Recall facility must be under the control of the constituency that votes an MP in.
Cameron’s last attempt to fudge this demand by putting Parliament in charge was thankfully blown out.
The recent election results have the major parties in a turmoil, and they will be amenable to making concessions in order to win back supporters.
We need to use that advantage – strike while the iron is hot – and thrust as big a petition as we can possibly muster under their noses before complacency sets in and everything reverts to the status quo.
But their plans could put the power to sack MPs in their colleagues’ hands – not their constituents. This isn’t good enough.
Together, we can build a HUGE people-powered petition to get real recall – so if enough people wanted to hold a by-election to sack their MP in between elections, they could.”
