A petition that is asking for the anti-Brexit Chancellor Philip Hammond to be SACKED for ‘frustrating the will of the people’ has gathered thousands of signatures.
It has now become clear that Hammond is trying to do everything that he can to get in the way of Brexit, and so we would encourage you all to sign it here and share away!
He may think that he is some sort of ‘stealth destroyer of Brexit’ – have a listen to his latest comments about delaying immigration controls until, wait for it, 2022.
The petition reads: The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond appears to be doing everything he can to frustrate the will of the British people, who decided by a clear majority to leave the European Union in the referendum of 23rd June 2016.
He has completely forfeited the trust of all of those of us who voted to leave the EU by insisting the UK remain in the Customs Union and by repeatedly undermining the UK’s negotiations with the EU through his public pronouncements, thereby attempting to frustrate the full execution of the British people’s democratic decision.
We therefore ask the Prime Minister, Theresa May MP, to remove Mr. Hammond as Chancellor of the Exchequer forthwith and ensure he is no longer involved in any aspect of negotiations with the EU.
We consider that if she does not do so, she will herself be forfeiting whatever trust we who voted leave have in her own leadership and willingness to take the UK out of the EU.
Once again, we would encourage you all to sign it here and share away!
As the petition has been hosted on change.org, there are no legal obligations for the government to act when it reaches a certain amount of signatures, but as a campaign platform change.org is great for getting the voices of multiple people heard.
It will be interesting to see how the public’s attitude changes towards Theresa May if she doesn’t take some sort of action to stop this high-level Remoaning from someone who is at the heart of Britain’s Brexit Cabinet.
