    Well they will get their chance next May. If you don't like a politician you votethem out. Not post silly tweets.

    Wonder what they will post when he gets re elected

  • "Anonymous" misses the point entirely. Cameron has no mandate. Only a minority of people voted for him. Our electoral system is badly broken, and simply saying "well, vote him out then" is massively ignorant of how little power anybody has via the ballot box.

    On the other hand, if you sign a 38 Degrees petition, the Government changes its policy. That seems to be the only way to influence Government policy these days.

    So "posting silly tweets" actually has a greater effect than wasting your time at the ballot box.

    This is the 21st Century after all.

    And if Cameron, the slimiest, most incompetent, least caring PM ever to hold office, does get in next year, I can tell you what they will be tweeting.
