Rejected petition Demand the recall of the MP for Clacton and give voters a by-election

In his campaigns in 2014/15, standing for UKIP in Clacton, Douglas Carswell repeatedly advocated the right for electors to recall their MP. He was duly elected by UKIP voters and has let them down. We demand he sticks to his own principles and stands down to allow voters to elect a proper UKIP MP.
