- The Prime Minister
- United Kingdom
A fundamental of British democracy has always been that a simple majority can bring an unpopular government to a vote and eject it from power.
Now the Tories want to change this so that they can stay in power, even if the Liberal Democrats abandon the coalition and they are in a minority.
Stability is not an excuse for tyranny. We believe that this is undemocratic, unfair and un-British.
We the undersigned call on David Cameron to ensure stability through good government, not undemocratic means; not to force through a reversal of a fundamental and ancient British right without putting it to the British people at the ballot box; to abandon now his proposal to entrench his government, even if it loses majority support, by setting the bar for confidence votes in Parliament at 55%.
