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

  • It's highly wrong and childish to over talk to avoid an important matter just so they can get what they want
  • It is in the interests of democracy and the politicians themselves. The baying and school boy behaviour which actually results in delaying proper government brings all politicisation into disrepute.
  • MPs need to do what they are paid to do not get involved in silly tactics but explore the serious issues being debated.
