Our gvt is lying to us, locking us up, giving unnecessary πŸ’‰ to our children & profiting from the situation
I suggest a General Election & constantly get "there is no one else to vote for"
We can sit here and accept it, or do something about it.
There must be people who can stand as independents? Find someone popular in your community who will stand, crowd fund them, support them on the ground. How can helicoptered in big party candidates beat local respected people?
We don't need a majority we just need enough to dilute the main parties & show it can be done.
Shall we at least try?
What is the worse that can happen?
A: 5 instead of 3 years of @BorisJohnson?
How many of us will cope with 3 more years of authoritarian rule?
B: @Keir_Starmer gets in? Really, even his own party don't rate him
C: Far right parties take over? They will never get a majority
Anyway for those who read to the end shall we go for it?

I know many of you challenge me for placing too much focus on Petitions, they do however help increase scrutiny government as shown here. The gvt wrote a vanilla response to "Recall Parliament to debate πŸ’‰of children", the @HoCpetitions required them to submit a revised response. Image
They did the same with "Require vaccine history be recorded on death certificates" today, this happens really often.
If we can actually trigger debates ministers are required to justify their position in parliament which is on camera, even if they don't change their decisions
Video footage is created that can be shared & may affect public opinion of them.
What other means is there of an individual like me to get a response from government?
I, someone with no experience of politics got a response from government &27k signatures on my second petition.

The Health Protection (Vaccination) Regulations 2009) place the following requirement on the Health Secretary with relation to πŸ’‰
"The Secretary of State must make arrangements to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that the recommendation of the JCVI is implemented."
Is there any reason to believe this advice is not "reasonably practicable?
Does the buck passing statement on the 3rd September JCVI statement make the decision lawful?
"JCVIΒ is constituted with expertise to allow consideration of the health benefits and risks of vaccination
and it is not within its remit to incorporate in-depth considerations on wider societal impacts, including educational benefits.

There seems to be some jubilation that Johnson says he won't introduce Vaccine passports & will reduce some authoritarian measures. Remember the Coronavirus Act renews on 25th of September & he can extend or ammend it at will. Don't take the bait, it must not be renewed.
Petition: Repeal the Coronavirus Act petition.parliament.uk/petitions/5926…
We cannot trust the government that put this draconian legislation in place, they must go too
Remember they still want to πŸ’‰ our kids against JCVI advice
And if you trust him remember 3 weeks to flatten the curve, no vaccine passports, 15m πŸ’‰ to freedom, the πŸ’‰ is for adults not kids, Christmas, Easter, June freedom day, no mandatory vaccines, save the NHS #JohnsonOut

Note petition "Hold an immediate general election due to authoritarian Coronavirus measures" is awaiting approval so you cannot sign yet. For those who want the content it is as follows.
Hold a general election: there is no opportunity until May 2024 to replace the government. This could mean 3 more years of lockdowns & increasing restrictions on people's human rights.
The election must be held no later than 30th November 2021, this timetable is feasible as proved in 2017.

This government clearly are not listening to us, we need to call a general election asap. Please can I have 5 supporters to get this petition live? "Hold an immediate general election due to authoritarian Coronavirus measures" petition.parliament.uk/petitions/5964… note it is not approved yet.
4 supporters, one more then it goes to approval
Thank you all, it has now been passed for approval. Let's see how much I need to soften it for approval this time (or if I get an outright rejection as I did for my anti-corruption one)??? Note it will stop accepting signatures soon until approved, only 20 allowed pre-approval.
