The Right Honourable John Bercow MP, Speaker of The House: To introduce upcoming budget proposals to Parliament as Supply Bills

      Nottingham, United Kingdom

Within our political system, a vote against a Supply Bill is considered as a vote of no confidence against the government.
We the people of the United Kingdom call upon you, John Bercow, to potentially save our country. We demand that all proposals of the upcoming budget are introduced to the lower house as Supply Bills, and not as Fiscal Bills. As Speaker, this decision is completely yours, and in doing so could allow our MP's to deal with a government that at best is incompetent, and at worst woefully corrupt.

Let us remind you of your own words, spoken when you took the position of Speaker of the House;

"I wanted it because I felt that there was a task to be undertaken and that's about strengthening back bench involvement and opportunity in parliament, and helping parliament get off its knees and recognize that it isn't just there as a rubber-stamping operation for the government of the day, and as necessary and appropriate to contradict and expose the government of the day."

To:
The Right Honourable John Bercow MP, Speaker of The House
To introduce upcomming budget proposals to parlament as Supply Bills

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I would love to take a minute to let you know that we have achieved 100 signatures in less than 24 hours. To me this a clear indication of how everyday people like ourselves truly feel about this government. From the comments I can see a lot of pain and distrust, but if we stick together and keep this momentum going we can make a change. This country is ours, and its is our responsibility to take any action, large or small, to reclaim it from the hands of fat cats and corrupt politicians.
      We the people of the UK have today united against tyranny!

      we put our trust in these mp's and all they have done is make the rich, richer and the poor poorer! you dont call that a system! its daylight robbery! after all it was the banks that got us in this position! and its left up to the taxpayer to bail them out? and not 1 of the bankers have been held responsible? but if we the taxpayer was to commit a crime like they have done, i'm absolutely possitive we would have been locked up for fraud! now you tell me, where is the fairness in that?
