Action now, not in five years
The system is broken. Parents struggling to pay the bills like Ceri can't wait. Take action now, contact the leaders of Labour, the Lib Dems and the Greens and tell them to work together at the next election.
The number of people relying on foodbanks has increased from 40,000 in 2010 to over 2million today and in one out of every seven households, adults like Ceri regularly skip meals. This year, energy and food prices have increased more in the UK than in any other G7 nation.
Our outdated voting system keeps the Tories in power with a minority of votes. While consistently, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and Green Party get a bigger combined number of votes at elections.
Ceri can't wait
Tell Opposition Party leaders to cooperate with eachother to make sure there is a change of government at the next election.
Tell them Ceri can't wait.
This isn't about political process or scoring political points. This is about the people who are being failed right now. This is about electing a government that actually matches what people vote for, and one that helps people in need. This is about people, not politics.
Ceri can't wait another five years for the election after next.
Why must change happen now?
Without a change of government, it could be too late to save our NHS after another five years. If the share of seats matched the share of votes they received, the Conservatives would have only won 2 of the last 21 elections. Even Margaret Thatcher would have failed to secure a majority.
Right-wing parties worked together to win the last two elections with around 40% of the vote but getting 56% of the seats. Opposition parties would be wise to beat them at their own game. Latest constituency-level polling shows that by cooperating in just 100 out of 650 constituencies, Labour, Liberal Democrats and the Greens combined could lock the Tories out of power and help people like Hassan.
Why do opposition parties need to work together?
The current outdated voting system means that the Conservative Party benefits from other right-wing parties standing down for them, but people who want to vote against this government remain split between three parties in England. In this unfair system, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and Green Party need to beat the government at their own game. They need to work together for one election to win. If they then make the voting system more fair, they will never need to again.
Why contact the leaders of Labour, Lib Dems and Greens?
The majority of the constituencies where electoral pacts would make the difference between the Conservative party winning or losing are located in England. So it is the opposition parties located in that nation - Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party of England & Wales - that have to be convinced to work together.
