Singer also vows to take her fight to Number 10
Lily Allen has blasted David Cameron and called for the Prime Minister to resign after he came clean about once having a stake in an offshore account.
The singer took to Twitter to vent her anger accusing Cameron of “stealing” and used the hashtag #resigncameron and retweeted a poster advertising a planned protest outside Cameron’s official residence of 10 Downing Street in London on Saturday (April 9).
“Our Prime Minister has been stealing from us. It’s very important that he resigns,” she wrote.
Millions of files, known as the Panama Papers, were leaked online from the database of a Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca on Sunday (April 3), exposing the financial records and offshore accounts of many public figures.
In the documents, it was revealed Cameron’s late father Ian, who died in 2010, ran an offshore fund under the name Blairmore Holdings, and yesterday (April 7) Cameron admitted he had a profitable stake in the fund with his wife Samantha, but they sold it before he became Prime Minister.
Allen went on to say: “It’s not about legality, it’s about ethics. He should be clamping down not taking advantage… in my eyes it is (stealing). And (U.K. Chancellor) George Osborne’s, who said tax evaders should be treated as common thieves… come on this is Great Britian (sic), We leave the law making to the guys with the offshore trust funds.”
When users implied she was also involved in such schemes, she replied, “None, no investments, I have an American bank account that I use when I’m touring there but I’m not interested in $ tbh (money to be honest)… And I could, I’ve been offered opportunities in schemes before I’m not that way inclined though.”
Allen recently paid homage to Kanye West by uploading a mock version of his ‘The Life Of Pablo’ artwork.
