But a few partisan hacks want to hang onto politics as usual -- and some of them own powerful tabloids. Hacks like billionaire Rupert Murdoch, whose Sun is pushing nasty hysteria about coalition government threatening Biblical disasters -- working to ensure that Murdoch, not we voters, is the "kingmaker" in our country.
Britain is ripe for change -- and not only in Westminster. In the next eight days, let's turn the tide against the poisonous politics of our arrogant media moguls and their toxic tabloids, and demand that they treat Britain’s people and democracy with respect. An unprecedented popular outcry could shame them into piping down -- sign the petition and forward this email now!
40% of the British press is owned by Rupert Murdoch alone. Reinforced by a handful of media proprietors, editors and millionaire donors, his hacks have repeatedly sought to tip the balance of our democracy and to bolster their own power -- we can't let them succeed!
Politics as usual has failed to deliver. From reforming and cleaning up politics to building a green economy, and from the future of public services to the public finances -- it’s time for real change, not just rearranging of the deckchairs.
It may have taken the spin doctors, millionaire donors and media moguls by surprise, but we, the voters, will decide the outcome of this election. So let’s unite for change and a better politics, and show that we, the voting public will decide our government.

With hope and determination,
Paul, Alice, Iain, Ricken and the whole Avaaz team
