Secretary of Business, Innovation & Skills Objects To Andrew Withers Being Leader of the Libertarian Party.
Quote From emailed letter received from Vince Cable’s Solicitors Dated 12th November 2010 to the Bristol District Registry
‘Our Client does not consider that Mr Withers has currently demonstrated sufficient need for leave in respect of the (Libertarian Party)’
It seems that you now need the permission of the Government to be a Libertarian.
It is the latest move in the 3 year battle that Andrew Withers has had with the Department of Business Innovation and Skills, a battle that Liam Fox MP called a Scandal. (background in previous press release and Andrew Withers Interview)
As each day passes this begins to look more like political interference and one wonders where this will lead in the wider political arena if the illegal actions of BIS are not exposed and publicly examined.
One can only surmise, but its always the cover-up that causes the scandal.
