Panama Papers: Cameron should resign over father's offshore investment fund, says Livingstone

Former London mayor Ken Livingstone has told talkRADIO he thinks David Cameron should resign as Prime Minister.

It comes in the wake of the Panama Papers, which revealed the PM’s father's offshore investment fund.

Cameron admitted earlier this week that he profited from the fund, selling shares in it worth £30,000 before being elected as the country’s leader.

“He knows full well if you want to avoid paying tax and be a bit dodgy, you put your money abroad,” Ken Livingstone told Jonny Gould feat. Ash on Friday night.

He also labelled Cameron a hypocrite.

“What I find bizarre about this is four years ago in the middle of the mayoral election, Cameron was on his feet saying I was a tax dodger and evading tax.

“At the end of the year, we found I actually overpaid tax.”
