Nigel Adams started this petition to UK Parliament

In the current parliamentary session there have been numerous defections of MPs from the political parties which supported their candidacy at the General Election.

 

The main basis on which we elect our MPs is their political allegiance. It is totally unacceptable therefore that, completely unchallenged, they are permitted to cross the floor of the House, switch to another party or sit as independent members. 

 

If an MP dies or is sacked, there is automatically a by-election. The same rule should apply to MPs who defect.

 

Please lend your support by signing and circulating this petition. Many thanks.
