MPs could be forced to debate a no-confidence vote in David Cameron

MPs could be forced to debate a no-confidence vote in the British Prime Minister, David Cameron.

petition, which accuses him of causing "devastation for the poorest in society for the last 5 years", is closing in on the 100,000 signatures required for a parliamentary debate.

It adds: “We cannot afford another 5 years of Tory rule, with the recent welfare reform that will cause nothing but immense poverty in the UK.”

Petitions that pass 10,000 signatures receive a response from the Government, while any petition attracting more than 100,000 names is considered for debate in Westminster Hall, the overflow room for parliamentary debate.

However the Government has yet to respond to the petition, despite it easily passing the 10,000 threshold with more than 97,000 signatures as of Thursday afternoon.

The petition, started by Kelly Teeboon in July, is likely to reach the required 100,000 target within the six-month time limit.

Mr Cameron introduced the e-petition initiative when he entered Downing Street in 2010 in a bid to boost democracy and transparency.

A similar petition calling for a debate on a vote of no confidence in Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was rejected by MPs earlier this year, despite it attracting more than 220,000 signatures.

MP's could face a debate on David Cameron

So there you have it in a nutshell, 220,000 people sign a petition to vote on Jeremy Hunt to still be in control of the NHS by the public and this is out voted by 650 MP's in the House of Commons to debate the issue?
So 3%(MPS) have out voted the remaining members of the public to debate the issue, you could not make it up could you,democracy alive and well in the Elected Chambers?
At least Hitler had cohorts to burn down the Reichstag and blame other people for the inferno, we had Guido Fawkes to try for his attempt and look how these blood thirsty, democratic cohorts treated him,"Hung, Drawn and Quartered, they then tried to Banish the public celebrating the event?
