Zac Goldsmith MP launches petition

 

An e-petition by Zac Goldsmith MP calling on the Government to introduce a “genuine Recall Bill” is something we at The Steeple Times most definitely support given the continual disgrace that many greedy Members of Parliament bring upon British politics.

With such individuals as Nadine Dorries MP being paid to appear in reality television shows when she ought to be spending her time representing her constituents and Brian Binley MP admitting that politicans “are all totally corrupt” and “political hanger[s] on”, Goldsmith’s bill is timely.

 

The petition is brief but states:

 

“We call on the Government to introduce a genuine Recall Bill. Under such a Bill, if an agreed percentage of eligible voters (minimum 20%) sign a petition calling for their MP to be ‘recalled’, a referendum must be held. If more than half of those taking part vote for their MP to be recalled, a by-election must follow”.

 

“In the wake of the expenses scandal, the UK’s main Political parties all promised to introduce a Recall mechanism, and in 2011 the Government produced a draft Recall Bill. However, its proposals fall far short of genuine Recall”.

 

“In the Government’s proposals, a Parliamentary committee (not voters) would decide if an MP qualifies for recall. The proposed criteria is so narrow that just as today, an MP could break all pre-election promises, switch Party, refuse to see constituents, all without qualifying for Recall”.

 

“Genuine Recall would empower voters, increase accountability and improve the relationship between people and power”.

 

Respect for British politicians is once again at an all time low. Zac Goldsmith’s proposal could change that. We back it wholeheartedly and urge our readers to take a moment to sign it.

    1. May God forgive our sins and trespasses and relieve us from the Goldsmiths. The Goldsmith family are getting on my tits.
      Zac’s first priority is to sort out his own disorganised family. Total Recall will leave us with no MP’s.

    2. Common Jeff, don’t be so gullible, it is gimmick, a trick to gain attention and publicity. Nothing will come of it.
      Tony Blair and his spin doctor Alistair Campbell was masters of the art of gimmick.
