Petition for a Progressive Alliance
These are troubling times.
Our economy is in chaos. Our politics is broken. The Tories want to set the terms of our exit from the European Union.
This petition calls on politicians from the Labour Party, the Green Party, SNP, Plaid Cymru, the Liberal Democrats and other progressive parties to immediately begin talks about building an alliance ahead of the next election.
Despite what the Tories are now saying an early election is likely. Progressives need to be ready for that.
We the undersigned urge that party leaders begin talks on a progressive alliance, which includes a commitment to proportional representation and an aim of preventing the formation of a Tory-UKIP-DUP government that would seek to enact an ultra-right Brexit.
