Get Emperor Palpatine to stand in Theresa May's place in TV Election Debates 2017

This petition had 24 supporters


If Theresa May refuse's to participate in Televised Debates with the other Parties political Leaders then Ian McDiarmid should return to his most famous acting role as Emperor Sheev Palpatine, and take the podium in her stead.

Such a refusal to debate shows she doesn't take the democratic process seriously, illustrating a clear disregard for public discourse and contempt for the British Public who have a right to proper well-informed debate in which we can test each candidate's ideas against each other. If she is unwilling to take us seriously, then we shouldn't take her seriously and continue the debates without her, placing in her stead a fictional character who is representative of the kind of contempt she has for civil liberties and democracy.
