The petition text
Rupert Murdoch and the tabloid press:
Stop trying to spread scare stories and fear to bully people to change how they vote. We cast our votes for democracy, for a responsible and reforming parliament and a better politics.
The outcome of our elections should be decided by us, the voters of the UK, not by you.
There are lots of scare stories in the media about what a hung parliament would mean. These vague threats could push voters into backing parties they don't really like.
Most of these stories are coming from newspapers owned by Rupert Murdoch's News International. The Sun newspaper, for example, warns that a hung parliament is a "recipe for political corruption and paralysis".
But we asked 38 Degrees members how they felt about a hung Parliament, and nearly 90% said they thought it offered a real chance to change politics for the better.
We're tired of hearing the spin from the Murdoch press about a hung parliament. It's time to let them know that we won't be bullied into voting a certain way. When it comes to polling day, we have the right to make up our own minds about who to vote for.
If we act now, we can send a clear message that we won't stand for scare stories. Sign the petition now
