Cameron has shown he is intent upon a pernicious and mean spirited campaign. It is disgraceful that he intends to use the civil service to tote his propaganda.
If “the state” is permitted to defend what it feels is right we might as well have authoritarianism, with the odd excursion into totalitarianism.
The state exists to serve its citizens, not the other way around.
The civil service became politicised under Blair and it has got worse under Cameron. If the civil service has to give a political view for the EU Referendum then the advice cannot be impartial.
If he does get them involved then he is also breaching the financial guidelines. Not that that would bother him, he has a track record of fiddling election expenses.
So he should be held to account immediately if he does use the Civil Service to promote his interests in staying in the EU.
Civil Servants must not: ‘act in a way that is determined by party political considerations, or use official resources for party political purposes.
They must not allow their personal political views to determine any advice they give or their actions.’
If he insists in behaving in an illegal manner he should be charged under whatever relevant act applies as should any Civil Servant working on his behalf.
The British Public are calling for an informed and balanced debate but Cameron refuses to give Ministers campaigning for Brexit equal access to
Civil Service resources. Also, the prospect of Gove being sacked at the end of the campaign is a tactic clearly designed to dissuade other Conservative MP’s from raising their heads above the parapet.
This referendum is a matter of conscience and stooping so low undermines the legitimacy of the process, impoverishes the debate and so cheats the British Public. Shame on Cameron.
Any MP’s or Civil Servants who don’t agree with this skulduggery pluck up your courage and find a way to push back.
Cameron plans to axe 90% of Tory Associations. If ever there was doubt by the grassroots of the Conservative Party as to what Cameron and his chums thinks of them, he has at a stroke removed them. If the reports are correct, the local constituency chairmen and officers must now surely know it is a battle to the finish, metaphorically speaking, kill or be killed.
Hardly a day passes without Cameron tunneling beneath previously unforeseen depths.
