Replace The UK Government By A Vote of No Confidence

The UK administration under the Conservatives & Boris Johnson been negligent.

Parliament should bring down the current government by a vote of no-confidence, and appoint another Prime Minister that can command the confidence of the House, whether that be a government of national unity or from one of the existing parties.

Why the contribution is important

The negligence of the the current government has lead to thousands of British citizens dying and the arrival of unprecented economic disaster.

Persistence with the current government may lead to further deaths, and deep social unrest when the true economic cost of the pandemic is realised.

    Somewhat agree, but in a time like this, lack of confidence in the government could lead to some very disastrous outcomes. If people don't have confidence they won't listen to what the govt are saying, further leading to breaking rules and spreading the virus.
    Though the current govt must be held accountable for their mistakes made in this situation.

    Nonsense. Finger pointing and recriminations have no place right now. Eventually we will have some form of enquiry and then we can vote on what we think. No government or party would want this job right now. Dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t. At the very best the Tories could have shut us down a week earlier. Anything earlier would been met with resistance

    Thanks Kirst10, I appreciate your point of view.

    For me we have already reached the stage where there is lack of confidence, which is why the government needs to change. A removal would certainly be dramatic, but the parallel with WWII is when N.Chamberlain resigned, and it was the right thing to do in the end.

    This is not a political opinion - some of the cabinet have on balance done pretty well, Sunak for example.

    @ SteveR57

    Its not about recrimination at all - its about the charting the right course from hereon. A UK National unity government under a different (& non-political leader) is what's needed right now.

    One thing to ponder about is the situation we have in Scotland. We started our curve later but locked down on the same date as the others on 23rd March.
    That means Scotland shut down earlier in our curve than England did in theirs. The implication is that Scotland should be less affected than rest of UK. Scotland have suffered greatly and our rate of deaths/million population is roughly the same as rest of UK. In fact, if you exclude London's figures, the rest of England is way below the rest of the UK....... so which government should be replaced?

    Now is not the time to discuss these things and i apologise for being blunt about the situation as the primary focus at the moment should and must be concentrated on controlling the spread.

    @Andy1510 - yes, indeed all good points. We could have a lot of discussion about the ability of Scotland to respond independently from the UK. If Scotland did follow UKGOV, and they got it wrong, then it's all the more reason to change the government before something worse happens...

    No use dredging through history now, however recent that history might be.

    Important thing is to LEARN.

    Use COMMON SENSE, at last, please, if all else fails.

    And that means sticking with the pathetic governments we have for a wee bit longer and then kicking them out, hopefully without pensions and knighthoods.
