To demand the resignation of George Osborne
Two weeks prior to the Referendum George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, told the people of Britain that if the UK were to vote to leave the EU then he would have to introduce an emergency budget. This was, obviously, an attempt to cause sufficient anxiety among the Electorate that they would be persuaded to vote to remain within the European Union. This statement caused considerable debate in the media and generally within the Electorate. On Monday, 27th June the Chancellor made a speech assuring the nation and the international and domestic business community that the UK's finances are sufficiently robust to withstand any fiscal shocks. He went on to say that Britain is open for business. The Chancellor's conduct in this matter is reprehensible. He deliberately distorted the facts and caused sufficient alarm to engender public debate with regard to his "need" to introduce and emergency budget. As the holder of the post in one of the Great Offices of State, it is incumbent upon the Chancellor to demonstrate probity in that office and be scupulously honest in his economic forecasts. The Chancellor has shown himself to be venal and dishonest at the most basic level. Accordingly, we the Signatories, call upon the Chancellor to resign his office and further resign as a Member of Parliament
THAT THE HOUSE OF COMMONS CENSURE PRIME MINISTER, DAVID CAMERON
David Cameron went to Europe to secure, in his own words, “Fundamental Change” in our relationship with Europe. The British Public expected just that, Fundamental Change. Instead, Cameron came back with a wishy-washy set of platitudes which badly served the United Kingdom. Fundamental Change should have included reform of the European Commission, Reform of the rampant corruption which permeates the European Union. There should have been reform of the Common Agricultural and Fisheries Policies. David Cameron is misleading himself, the British Electorate and the UK Parliament by his actions. We call upon the House of Commons to hold a debate to censure David Cameron for his failure to properly serve the United Kingdom.
