Goal: 100,000 Signatures

To uphold the parliamentary convention whereby the Speaker is returned to Parliament in an uncontested election.

Will you sign?

Boris Johnson and his government have announced they intend to depose the Speaker of the House of Commons by standing a candidate against him in a general election. 

This is a direct violation of parliamentary convention whereby the Speaker is returned to Parliament in an uncontested election. 

This government continues to signal that it will break any convention, norm or law that it sees as standing in the way of 'no deal' Brexit.
