David Cameron: "I think the scale of the problems facing Britain today - the recession, the debt crisis, and above all the political crisis - all point in one direction. I think there is now only one way of sorting out the mess, and that is for Parliament to be dissolved and for a General Election to be held right away."You can sign the petition by clicking HERE.
We are turning the campaign we had planned for the local and European elections into the campaign Britain now needs: a campaign for a General Election, to be held as soon as possible after the 4th June.
We want everyone - whether they support Labour, or the LibDems, or no party - to join in. Though the power of our collective pressure, we can force Gordon Brown to act.
No - there is no constitutional requirement for a General Election. Yes - this Labour Government could cling on for another year, with or without a new leader.
But we don't think the country wants to wait another year to pass judgment on their politicians, and on this Parliament. We don't think the country wants to wait another year before we start dealing seriously with the debt crisis and this economic crisis.
The political system in Britain today, from the Prime Minister downwards, is quite simply paralysed. And it is now abundantly clear that the country does not want to wait another year to give everyone in Westminster a simple message:
We want change - now get on with it.
