Support Democracy in Wiltshire - sign the petition!

We, the undersigned, urge the liberal-minded candidates in Wiltshire Constituencies to consider forming a progressive alliance, to ensure an effective opposition in the forthcoming election.

We strongly feel that to be liberal-minded is to care more about the greater good than the self, and as such, would expect the united voice of the people to be more important than personal gain in this election.

The danger we face is one of becoming a one party state, with a right wing ideology that threatens the progress we have made as a civilised and humane society over the last 60 years.  If we are to remain a truly democratic nation there needs to be an effective opposition, supported by voters who want to save the NHS and our schools, halt the ever-widening gap between the wealthy and the poor, and protect the rights and freedoms of ALL who live in our great country.

Labour, Liberal Democrat, Green and Independent candidates must act in the interests of all, but particularly the many people who are not thriving, and will never thrive, under a right wing government.  We ask you to put aside conflict and personal ambition and work together to promote the progressive change many want to see in Wiltshire....and across the UK.

(With thanks to Kirstie Edwards, whose own petition inspired me to start this petition)
