To: Chris Grayling MP, Leader of the House

Stop Filibustering in The House Of Commons

Ban filibustering as a way of derailing debate and using up time that should be spent on the serious issue of representing the people.

Why is this important?

We deserve a certain standard of behaviour and serious protocols in the House of Parliament to ensure the business of running our country is done in an efficient and balanced way. Politicians should stop employing tactics to side rail issues that are important to us, the population of this country.


Reasons for signing

  • Because it is hard enough to get things through parliament without deliberate time wasting
  • Politicians represent us disgracefully when they behave IMMATURELY and IMMORALLY. Thankfully the House of Lords to some extent provides debate with graciousness and respect. Our shameful, greedy MPs have forgotten the PRIVILEGE of their lofty position and the responsibility that comes with it. If they do not grow up and behave RESPONSIBLY, lead with HONESTY and INTEGRITY then I predict that the people will rebel and take matters into their own hands.
  • This behaviour is unacceptable, how can we possibly let the people who run the country, use behaviour we will not accept from school children
