I doubt if even Farage really wants the votes of this kind of person.

To the OP: how would the government resign exactly? Are you asking for all MPs in Lib/Con to resign their post and do lots of by-elections (with all other MPs keeping their posts)?
Or are you asking for the PM to call a general election now in the hope that UKIP will suddenly win loads of seats?
Are you calling for some sort of coup d'etat?
Or are you just writing a load of incoherent drivel?
To quote from your petition:
"The people of the UK did not elect your Government"
Yes, they did, like it or not.
"and did not give you the ability to vote yourselves a 5 year fixed time in government."
What does "vote themselves" mean? The people in the relevant constituencies voted for their MP. Unless nobody voted but the MPs themselves.
"We therefore want you to resign and leave office within 1 month."
What does that even mean? Who is "you"?
"You gave yourself a 5 year Job"
No, they didn't. The individual MPs were elected and formed a government, although they needed a coalition between two parties to do so. The government must call a general election within 5 years but can do so at any time before that.
"but we didn't give you that right so go now."
Yes, "we" did.
Maybe engage brain before keyboard next time.

First off, we don't have a democracy. A democracy is where the people are represented by the politicians. Ours are voted for by a very small percentage of the population. Set up correctly, proper PR would be a million times more democratic.

Secondly who else would you have? I can't say I'd trust any of the misfits around now to run the country. They are mediocre at best, dangerous at worst.

How about a call for "No confidence" in the government. That is the legal way to force an election when the people feel their government is not governing. Governors are supposed to keep things running at a steady pace ( see the mechanics of a beam engine), yet this coalition seem to just keep racing from one disaster ti another and screwing up the electorates lives (except the rich that is).

No it won't. It won't be read by anyone that matters. It doesn't even make sense. It's just a badly worded general whinge.
