David Cameron’s leading Donor to the party & pensions expert has removed all financial support to the conservative party, and has said he may quit the party because of the way the Prime Minister has scare mongered the British Public in the run up to the EU Referendum over pensions.
Mr Edi Truell who is a pensions expert has donated hundreds of thousands to the party since 2010, and claimed he will now only hand over money if Michael Gove or Boris Johnson replace Cameron as party leader
Being a pension’s expert, Mr Truell is obviously shocked how David Cameron has recently stated that a Brexit vote would open up a triple lock on pensions. Mr Truell said that the Prime Minister’s warning about the damage a leave vote could do to pensions was the final straw in a pattern of “unfair” and “irresponsible” claims.
Priti Patel who is a government minister, has also waded in by claiming “I simply think this is just an unrealistic statement, another intervention that is quite frankly there to terrify pensioners in a quite demeaning way.”
Mr Truell wrote to the party chairman Lord Feldman to give his explaination that he will no longer be donating to Mr Cameron and warned that “the machinery of Government is being abused” by all of the remain campaigners.
He went on to say he is “staggered” by claims made by Mr Cameron and George Osborne about the financial risks of a Brexit, claiming the numbers are a “fantasy”.
He added: “I think Boris, Michael Gove and team have done a sterling job, a brave job, and I would be only too pleased to support them and, in my view, the genuine Conservative party in the future.
“I’m not prepared to support the current regime given the way they have been going about things, and other major Tory backers are considering the same as myself”
“The much greater risk is remaining within the EU, they’ve got explicit plans to destroy British pensions,” he warned, adding: “All the final salary funds will go bankrupt and their companies will go bankrupt supporting them, that’s about 8,000 pension funds in the private sector.”
