Op-ed: With the panama data leaks story failing to go away calls for UK PM David Cameron to resign are being heard inside of, and away from, Westminster.
Saturday protesters intend to congregate outside of 10 Downing to hold a 'gathering' until Cameron resigns.
Those that continue to claim Mr Cameron has done nothing wrong fail to recognise why in the eyes of many voters he has.
Rolling out a series of high-profile lawyers and supporters will not convince the people Cameron is not touched by the 'panama papers'.
Those who say the PM has done nothing wrong miss one important point - he has lied to save his political hide.
Over five days David Cameron and his team issued a series of misleading statements, at times lies, in an attempt to cover his tracks.
It flies in the face of transparency.
It again highlights Cameron's hypocrisy.
Remember how Labour supporter and comedian Jimmy Carr was dissed by Cameron when it was revealed he had some money invested off shore? It was 2012 when that story broke. BBC News reported "Comedian Jimmy Carr says he has "made a terrible error of judgement" over using a tax avoidance scheme. In a statement on his Twitter account, Mr Carr said he was no longer involved in the K2 tax shelter."
Well surprise surprise this week Cameron offered an apology to Jimmy Carr once again shifting the goalposts when it suits, or did he?
"David Cameron had previously criticised the comedian Jimmy Carr, describing him as “morally wrong” for seeking to avoid taxes. However, today the PM has made a surprise u-turn describing Carr’s tax affairs as ‘nothing illegal’" reported the London Economic Wednesday but we wonder what took him so long and why now.
That turns out to be a satirical post but he should be apologising to Jimmy Carr and to the nation.
But Cameron has already been shown to be a hypocrite.
It was a very different story in 2014 when he was quick to defend Tory pal and musician Gary Barlow who was shown to be entangled in a similar scheme to Carr.
During the last five days David Cameron's position has shifted considerably and continuously.
First there were claims it was a private family matter followed by Mr Cameron senior's offshore tax haven dealings were nothing to do with the PM. That was quickly superseded with another deliberately misleading statement that David Cameron would not benefit from the tax haven in the future. Finally Thursday evening Cameron personally issued a statement explaining his previous financial gains when he sold his share of Blairmore holdings in 2010.
His casual and dismissive manner in announcing he and wife Samantha made around £30k out of that sale, but it was all above board, will satisfy some but you cannot please all of the people all of the time.
And this time Cameron will not please many.
In 2010 David Cameron became Prime Minister of the UK and ushered in a period of austerity claiming we are 'in this together'.
Those hollow words have a nasty ring to them now.
As he and his ministers decided we the people should pay for the failings of bankers and the banking system in the UK his finances were safely tucked away.
Arguments that these off shore tax havens actually help the people of some old colonial countries are an insult to the intelligence of British voters.
If it is all so above board why did it take a massive data leak to alert people to this very secretive way of stashing money.
Mr Cameron has been shown to be a liar, a fraud and in some ways nothing more than a con man.
He continues to be selective with the truth.
And with his words of 'one nation', 'big society', 'transparency' and 'all in it together', ringing in my ears I wonder if you can really believe a word he says?
