The right of recall

At a time of mass anti-politics voting, what do our leaders suppose voters will do when they learn that they have been duped over Recall? — Zac Goldsmith

Watered down Right of Recall looks like cynical fudge which deprives constituents of real powers. — Caroline Lucas

In the local and European elections two weeks ago, the mainstream political parties got a drubbing. What difference has it made? Seemingly not a lot, either they are not listening or they are showing their usual arrogant contempt for the people.

LibDems have a toxic leader who makes them unelectable. What are they doing about it? Er nothing.

Labour are still offering the same hated and discredited policies as the Tories.

David Cameron has offered an EU referendum sometime in Never Never Land. Ed Miliband has simply said never.

The Day after the elections, David Cameron announced changes that would allow fracking under private property, those measures were included in the Queen’s Speech today.

Zac Goldsmith and Caroline Lucas have been pushing for some time for the right of recall of MPs, ie the electorate can fire their MP. Measures were announced in the Queen’s Speech today. Measures that are not worth the paper they are written on.

What has been written into the Queen’s Speech, will only allow constituents to recall their MP if a committee of MPs grants them permission to do so. This is cronyism. It is for the people to decide they wish to be rid of their MP, not a committee of MPs.

It is also must be extended to grant local communities the right to recall their local councillors.

Please sign the petition demanding the right of recall.

It must be made very clear to Members of Parliament, they are not there to act for the 1% nor is it an opportunity to get their snouts in the trough, they are there to act for the 99%.
