I despise Cameron and his policies with a passion - but what are the alternatives at present?
Miliband is a joke.
Farage is a Tory in disguise.
Clegg is an incompetent and sold his and his party's soul to the devil for a sniff of power.
But as has been pointed out, this petition is based on a misrepresentation - we don't vote for Prime Minister, we vote for our constituency MP's who
tend be aligned with political party's.
The parliamentary leader of the largest party get's asked to form a government - in the absence of having an overall majority, as at the last
election, then different party's negotiate to form a coalition etc.
Under the current system we realistically have no chance of doing away with Cameron et al until May 2015.

The Party Leaders are elected by the Party memberships. We vote for Parties, not leaders, in General Elections.
Party politics has served it's purpose and outlived it's usefulness.
We need urgent and radical electoral and parliamentary reform if the wishes and interests of the people are to be put before those of 'the elites'
that currently direct policy and agenda.

As for millionaires on the front bench, tell me how many on the shadow bench aren't millionaires either. Sorry, but Labour being the party of the
people days are long gone, they went when John Smith passed
Tony Blair had more public school / Oxbridge educated people in his cabinet than any other PM since the 1800's - a feat since surpassed by Cameron.
The Civil Service, The Judiciary, senior military and police officers, top bankers and insustrialists are all dominated by people from this same
Is it any wonder the interests of the ordinary British people aren't put first?
John Smith could have been a great leader.
How did he die again?

.....however unpopular things are because of the mess the country is STILL in from the last lot of self centred bigoted labour government ....
Who in turn inherited a country decimated by The Tories.....
See how this party political game of pass the parcel works?
Always publicly blame someone else and pass the buck whilst the reality is that very little of any importance ever changes for the better whilst the
those who direct things continue to milk this country and bleed us dry.

Roll on Scottish Independance and we can get rid of those idiot MPs that think north of the border doesn't exist!
What makes you think any newly independent Scottish politicians will be any less amoral than those of every other nation under the sun?
You conveniently forget that two of the UK's most recent inept, incompetent and downright insidious PM's were Scottish.
It's the same unholy alliance that holds real power in Scotland that does so throughout the rest of the UK.
Why do you single out 'north of the border'?
I come from North East England, an area that has been neglected and marginalised at least as much as an other area of the UK.
What we all need to rid ourselves of is the London / Home Counties centric nature of UK politics and society in general.
