Force the resignation of Mr Stewart Jackson, MP for Peterborough.
  • Petitioned Cllr John Peach, Peterborough Conservative Party Chairperson

This petition was delivered to:

Cllr John Peach, Peterborough Conservative Party Chairperson

Force the resignation of Mr Stewart Jackson, MP for Peterborough.

    1. Petition by

      Peterborough Against Poverty

Mr Jackson has posted many 'controversial' tweets on Twitter but he has overstepped the mark by using language such as "Unemployable dross" and "social misfit bottom feeding dregs" (9th April 2013). The Conservative Party should not condone this behaviour of using such insulting and contemptuous language when using social media in his capacity of an MP. This will impact on the members of his constiuency who may require his help but will be reluctant to approach him, knowing his feelings towards people below his class.
Peterborough deserves to have a representative that is not prejudicial against them, whatever their class or situation. A screenshot of Mr Jackson's tweet can be found on www.peterboroughagainstpoverty.webs.com in the news section.

To:
Cllr John Peach, Peterborough Conservative Party Chairperson
Force the resignation of Mr Stewart Jackson, MP for Peterborough.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Because I grew up in the city and hate what the Tories and Stewart Jackson are doing to both Peterborough and the UK.

      Is the Conservative Party the Nasty Party of Mr Jackson?

      This man is a total disgrace to the party. He has refused to repay the taxpayer's money, and now shows the sensitivity and integrity of a dead rat.

      This is not the first time that he has brought the city in to disrepute. It appears to me that he has these totally unnecessary, rude, undemocratic outbursts at least one a month. He is not carrying out the true role of MP for Peterborough. This is to represent the interests of constituents without prejudice as to whether they voted for him or not, or are party members and supporters.
