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.
