We demand a general election now
The British public deserve better, they deserve a general election.
Why is this important?
The public has spoken. They want a general election now.
A poll commissioned by the Mirror found that two-thirds of the general public want to head to the polls by the summer.
After 14 years of Tory rule - and a host of failed leaders being chosen by a few thousand Conservative members rather than at the ballot box - people have had enough.
Rishi Sunak has appeared to promise a vote will be held during this calendar year - before the theoretical deadline of January 2025 set out by the Fixed-term Parliament Act.
But many in Westminster believe the Tories will cling on for a few more months and refrain from calling a vote until October.
This is simply too long. Rishi Sunak has run Britain since October 2022. Never at any stage has the electorate been asked to choose him as their Prime Minister.
This wait must end now.
