6 May, 2010 — Take Back Parliament
Just minutes ago, we found out – to no one’s great surprise – that our broken system has stolen our election.
We held up our end of the bargain today – we voted. But tonight’s result is a Parliament that simply doesn’t represent the ballots we cast.
We’ve got the BBC coverage on here at the office and it seems clear that the seats the three main parties are about to win will have almost nothing to do with the share of the national vote they get.
Tonight – right now – we must demand an end to the broken electoral system that delivered today’s ridiculous results.
Sign our petition now and then forward this email to all your friends:
We’re utterly fed up with the status quo. That’s why organisations from across the political spectrum are joining forces to launch a new campaign for change: Take Back Parliament.
We have two simple demands:
No more broken elections. Fair votes now.
Join us – sign the petition and begin mobilising your community:
To start off strong we need 5,000 signatures by tomorrow morning. I hope you’ll sign on to our campaign, and ask your friends to join too.
We have one, absolutely crucial goal – a Parliament that at long last belongs to us – and we’ll only make it happen with your help.
This is just the beginning.
