Campaign To Remove Hammond Hits 30k Signatures – Sign Below
The campaign to remove Chancellor Philip Hammond (pictured above) from his post, due to his stance on Brexit, has this morning hit 30,000 signatures. In the past two days the heads of both leading Brexit groups, Leave Means Leave and Leave.EU have both called for the removal of Mr. Hammond. The full wording of the petition is as follows:
‘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’.
