Cameron ‘Vote Of No Confidence’ Petition Passes 100K

Fact checked

MPs could be forced to debate an e-petition, which accuses David Cameron of causing 'devestation for the poorest in society for the last 5 years'


A petition calling for a vote of no confidence in British Prime Minister David Cameron could soon be debated in parliament after it exceeded the required 100,000 signatures.

The petition states:

The current Tory government has caused devastation for the poorest in society for the last 5 years. We cannot afford another 5 years of Tory rule, with the recent welfare reform that will cause nothing but immense poverty in the UK.

Cameron introduced the e-petition initiative when he became prime minister in 201o with the aim of boosting transparency and democratic participation.

If petitions on the parliamentary website garner 100,000 signatures, MPs are then obliged to hold a debate on the subjects raised.

The date for this debate, however is yet to be confirmed.

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
