John Hemming to resign or have the Lib Dem Whip removed

75 Signatures | Sign Now

Created December 6, 2010 by James


John Hemming has said that he will vote in favour of the Govts tuition fee rise to punish the students who have occupied his office.

7 students have non violently occupied his office.

7 students who want him to honour the pledge he willingly made to vote against any increase in tuition fees.

Hemming has said that he will punish tens of thousands of lower and middle income students each year, by tripling their fees and exploding their debt because 7 students dared to peacefully protest and ask him to do what he promised he would do.

The man is a disgrace and should resign.

And, if he won't the Liberal Democrats who have a long history of supporting the right to protest should withdraw the whip from him.

    You should be ashamed Mr Hemming. You are a traitor to your party and all students.

    'No, no, you spoiled it for the rest of the class' doesn't cut it when you're talking about the future of millions of young people, I'm afraid.

    The man is a disgrace and should resign.

    Hemmings' attitude and planned course of action is petty, myopic and callous. Politicians are meant to represent the people and act according to ethics and reason, not for the purpose of punishing them.

    Absurd, petty behaviour. A man who admits to making decisions on such a basis has no right being a politician as it throws into doubt his whole capacity for rational judgement.

  33. Ane O'Donnell Edinburgh UNITED KINGDOM

    Protest is not "bad behaviour", and to vote against the protesters' cause simply because they protested is not democracy.

    This man doesn't understand the point of democracy. He wasn't elected to do what he wants, he was elected to do what we want him to do, as our representative. Bring him down!

    To continue to receive a salary as a representative of the people would be a disgrace.

    This isn't even an issue of his views on the fee rise, reprehensible as they are; he doesn't have the damned maturity or sense to hold public office.

    A authentic disgrace to sink to such a petty level

    Mr Hemming this is not a game. Your reasoning is flawed, almost childish.

    John Hemmings is a well know LAIR

    Looks like Mr Hemming is acting as a dictator. Punishing people for protesting happens is places such as Burma and Saudi Arabia. Keep protesting students it is your right!

    This man is set to punish the very people his party targeted to allow them enough seats in parliament to enable him and his master to sell those who fell for their scam and voted for their Lies down the river!!
    I very nearly voted for this disgrace of a party at the election purely on their promise that my Granddaughter would be able to afford to be the first one from our working class family to study at university..Thank god sanity prevailed and my cross went to the labour candidate.
    In his blog he dares to say the student protesters have no understanding of the work his office does for the vulnerable in his constituency, how pray does he not see that these students have a legitimate grievance against him as an individual and his party as a whole for cynically targeting them a very vulnerable element of our society "Youngsters who want a future better than the dole queue” only to dismiss and insult them once they had been used for his parties self gratification.
    You, John Hemming are a disgrace and if there is any justice left in this Country you will get your just deserts at the next election where you will be summarily dismissed.
    It is a pity that we the people cannot start disciplinary proceedings to enable us to dismiss you with immediate effect for gross misconduct!

  69. David Weeden Cardiff UNITED KINGDOM

    What a sad reason. Students want education; Hemming needs one.

    What a patronising little ****. Not acceptable from an MP. Resign before we make you.

  73. bob chewter london

    it's about time these arrogant politicians were reminded that they are paid public servants..not there to dictate or rule over us.

  74. Julian Coleman London UNITED KINGDOM

    Disgusting comments from an unprincipled man. He should go.
