Reject the Conservative/DUP government

This petition had 268 supporters

A coalition or governing agreement between the Conservatives and the DUP is not a reasonable proposition.

The DUP do not have any seats outside Northern Ireland, and do not speak for the people of England, Wales or Scotland. Their prejudiced, regressive policies are fuelled by ignorance and hatred rather than compassion and reason, and their links to violent paramilitary groups are far too close.

The Conservative Party may have retained more seats than Labour won, but it is clear that they have no understanding of the great nation they seek to govern. Sadly we are currently a deeply divided country and propping up a controversial party with a more controversial party in order to force a very controversial manifesto with such a tiny majority is simply not good enough. 3 seats out of 650 amounts to 0.46%, which is pathetic. Theresa May has also proven herself totally unfit to lead any sort of government, for all sorts of reasons.

We call upon Westminster to rule out this option and investigate other ideas such as a Labour minority government, an alternate coalition or another election conducted under Proportional Representation.
