Think of the UK PM like the USA President - only we are *moderately more* truthful about who makes the decisions.
Its the party that makes it up and the man at the front just says it.
Same in the states, only they like to pretend the president has the final say.
As has been proven by historical events the party forming the government can change the PM without recourse to an election. Although its unpopular when it happens.
Other than Revolution only the Queen can call for an election by making a "SHOW OF NO CONFIDENCE" but ...

....but she won't and this will add to the growing unpopularity of the Monarchy anywhere North of London.
David Cameron is, as stated in the petition, an unelected Prime Minister. He does not have a mandate from the people to do anything. And, moreover, what he IS doing is in direct opposition to most of his election promises. In particular his and his party's shocking, brutal attacks on the poor and the disabled, while continuing to grant tax breaks to themselves and their rich corporate cronies, supporters, and funders. Never has political corruption and contempt for the populace been so shameless and barefaced. They need to go. NOW.
I completely agree with above feeling, surely what cameron is doing is criminal and there must be something the people can do?
There is a petition here that already has 4,632 supporters and climbing here:
We have an unelected prime minister who is below the opposition in the polls and clearly attacking the poor and lower working class while at the same time hoarding the countries wealth for himself and his rich buddies and associates. There are protests up and down the country against the NHS cuts and bedroom tax etc.
I was wondering, why do they need 100,000 signers, if they get this number will that force an early election? What more does cameron have to do for the average Joe to protest against him, and does a forced early election under the circumstances seem a possibility as myself and many other brits are hoping?
Was in the papers today Cameron didn't even know the price of a value sliced bread, instead he uses a £100 bread maker! Those clowns haven't a clue how the other half live!

Completely flawed petition, i am afraid. He is the leader of the Conservative Party, who won most votes at the last election. Admittedly not enough to win an outright majority but enough to put them in a position to form a coalition government. That makes him Prime Minister whether people like it or not.
This isn't the USA - we do not have Presidential elections!
It seems we're in an age where everyone expects and demands a "Do-Over" whenever it doesn't go their way. It does seem from my American perspective, Cameron won. I think he's a jerk and a fool. Playing the warmonger to Obama as a sidekick for Syria ...while Obama looks upon England with utter contempt that goes back a lifetime for that man. It's a fools game played by a fool.
Still... How would it be if replacing a leader were that easy? Lets say you work and work tirelessly to finally get YOUR ideal man into office ....and the opposition rigs a vote up to get him removed because he pissed them off. I imagine the system that looks so dandy now would suddenly infuriate a good many people, eh?
Cameron didn't win, the Conservative party won, put labour back in and watch this country breath its last breath. At least the Tories and there partners are trying to put right all the crud left by labour.
IMO they are doing the best they can at the moment, and I am happy to let them try and rescue this country.
