Let them use own money

Sir Jeremy Heywood, the secretary to the Cabinet, has stated that those Cabinet ministers campaigning to leave the EU cannot use their special advisers or any government resources to campaign.

Well he is half right.

There can be no justification for those arguing in favour of staying in the EU using government resources to do so either.

Does any taxpayer want David Cameron to spend our tax money on his campaigning?

Why should he?

Let David Cameron, George Osborne and their friends use their own money.

Sir Jeremy’s announcement will backfire on the campaign to stay in the EU when his ruling becomes generally known.

Didn’t David Cameron campaign against the alternative vote when we held a referendum on electoral reform? Surely the change had to be the coalition government’s policy, because they held the referendum?
