    The handling of the snow crisis has been an absolute shambles. Salt supplies are running low, many roads are not being gritted, airports are closed and people have been left to fend for themselves. Is this what the Tories call leadership?

    Cameron should go to the Palace to hand in his resignation and ask the Queen to dissolve Parliament so that we can go to the polls.

      .......... the torys dont control the weather. Its the local councils who should have been more prepared. the UK never gets snow like this so of course its going to be difficult. Thats why the transport minister is holding a review about wether snow will become more common in England so they can have more funding for snowy and icy conditions.

        We can't. Cameron can't make it to the palace and we can't make it to the polls because of the snow.

        He is a clever Tory!

        Exactly.

        And why would you call for Cameron to stand down instead of Philip Hammond?
        This thread = labourite clutching at straws.

        Gordon Brown should've gone to the Palace to hand in his resignation and ask the Queen to dissolve Parliament so that we can go to the polls.
        There, I fixed your original post.

        As much as I despise cameron, its not really the governments fault that we have had heavy persistant snow.
        We may complain about it all the time, but we aren't the only country having problems with the snow.
        I do however think that we really need to sort out some kind of plan, and actually invest some money in getting the equipment we need.

        No that's a pretty absurd idea.

        Brown's government were democratically elected by the people to govern. Cameron's government is a coalition of two parties (one of which lied to the their voters to get votes), neither of which gained a majority. It has no mandate, and therefore should only exist as a temporary measure.

        Would you care to mention what happened last time there was some bad snow when Labour were in government? I assume you called for a general election then too?

        Yes...that's not the point though. I'm not for the coalition, but saying they should go because of the snow is just idiotic.

        Should David Cameron step down because of the weather that could not be predicted long enough in advance for any meaningful changes to be made in a country that rarely experiences heavy snow, making it unviable to companies to buy the sort of snow clearing equipment that other, more snow-prone countries would have?

        Go away Labour troll.

        Brown was never voted in...?

        Tories got the most votes, and the most seats. Deal with it.

        Actually, it has not been bad where I live. The major roads have been gritted and even the pavements.
        Under the LIE-bour dictatorship, everything came to a standstill where I lived- practically nearly most roads weren't gritted and neither were the pavements.
        In some councils, they had no salt grit.

        In summary, things have not improvided dramatically and there is still a headache. But at least we have a half a paracetamol.


        Of course, next year maybe different. At least this coalition has taken steps to ensure there is a review and any solution offered would be implemented.

        Should David Cameron step down because of the weather that could not be predicted long enough in advance for any meaningful changes to be made in a country that rarely experiences heavy snow, making it unviable to companies to buy the sort of snow clearing equipment that other, more snow-prone countries would have?
