Give a referendum for the public to vote if National Insurance can be increased
No increased taxation, without voter permission.
The Conservative manifesto said that “we will not raise the rate of [...] National Insurance”.
13,966,451 people voted and gave the party the democratic right to form a government.
Increasing national insurance by 1.25% breaks this guarantee.
The Government does not have the democratic mandate from the public to increase taxation without seeking their permission.
The Government must be trusted to enact the manifesto it was elected on.
Failing to do so can create mistrust in those who hold temporary office and must be held accountable for the decisions it makes.
We are a democracy and “whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly”.
A referendum will ensure the principles of democracy are respected.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
