Gravy Train arrives to Knutsford.
After visiting the Cabinet Couple, Yvette Cooper and Ed Balls in Yorkshire on Wednesday (11th), the Vote for a Change campaign rolled into town.
“In 1997, the people of Tatton showed their discontent with the political system and voted to clean it up,” said Willie Sullivan from the Vote for a Change campaign. Now they have been left with a democracy that doesn’t work and an MP that opposes change.”
The current political system has hit the buffers and the public are angry. We are demanding real change and that means a referendum on the voting system on Election Day.” To view the Gravy Train’s previous visits: http://www.flickr.com/photos/voteforachangeuk/page3/
The ‘Vote for a Change’ campaign is leading the call for a referendum on the voting system in the wake of the expenses crisis. It is based on the premise that politics is too important to be left to the politicians.
The Vote for a Change campaign has attracted support from thousands of ordinary citizens, heads of prominent civil society and membership organisations. It has now been promised talks with ministers after an appeal to the Prime Minister signed by 2000 of its supporters.
