Petition Make it illegal for any UK politician to lie or mislead the public.
We the UK general public are sick to death of politicians that cannot be trusted, too many openly lie to the people and media, then laugh it off when caught out and nothing is ever done.
We demand honest representation from politicians to ensure our democracy is protected for the people.
The misconduct in public office offence presents a good starting place for the offence.
- An elected representative.
- Wilfully lies or deceives the public or news media to such a degree as to amount to an abuse of the public's trust in elected office.
- Will be guilt of the offence.
- Excuses or justification should only function in mitigation of sentence not guilt; a lie is a lie.
