The UK Government and Treasury are planning to launch a central bank digital currency (CBDC) in the near future.

A centrally-controlled digital currency would be revolutionary: it gives ‘elites’ the opportunity to decide how, when and where we spend our money. In the new world social credit system rapidly being constructed, your money could be ‘switched off’ for any reason, be capped, and even have expiry dates on when you can spend it.

Although the proposals for a CBDC such as ‘Britcoin’ include nominal commitments to ensure the use of cash - which is categorically harder to control than app-based financial activity - the execution of CBDC plans would already grant ‘officials’ power to effectively switch off your money for any reason. Forget empty assurances to the contrary from politicians and central bankers: time and again they have proved they cannot be trusted.

Have you shared governmentally-unapproved views on social media? Have you been to pro-life or pro-family events critical of the ‘correct’ narrative? Have you dared to criticize the pharmaceutical industry? If so, you may be facing a ban on accessing your money once a CBDC is introduced, when the conditions are ‘right’.

If power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, why would you want all your money digitally controlled by government officials? If you have earned your money fairly, why should you have to appease a central digital bureaucracy in order to access or spend it?

Imagine your salary going directly to the Treasury, which they transfer to you if you’ve been a good little citizen. That’s a CBDC.

Sign this petition to the Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt demanding a stop to plans for a Communist-style digital currency.

Petition: Stop CBDC plans

Dear Mr Hunt,

As a taxpaying British citizen, I respectfully demand you to not proceed with the incoming central bank digital currency (CBDC) being proposed by the Bank of England. 

CBDCs are the project of a Communist state rather than a free nation. Their implementation will ultimately give Government, Treasury and Bank of England officials totally unjustified control over the private bank accounts of citizens and contribute to establishing the infrastructure for an unprecedented level of surveillance over the population. 

Unlike cash, digital pounds can and will be ‘switched off’ for any reason, be capped, and even have expiry dates on their use, unless they are stopped for good. 

The income of private citizens is not state property. If you proceed to implement a CBDC, you will be contributing decisively to turning the UK into a de facto Communist state and tragically abusing your mandate to serve the public.

A ‘black market’ of cash will emerge from the decision to introduce and eventually prioritise digital currency at the expense of physical currency. There is nothing patriotic about ‘Britcoin’.

In your capacity as Chancellor for the Exchequer with responsibility for HM Treasury, I urge you to suspend plans for a CBDC and guarantee the unconditional continuation of cash within the UK. I have earned my salary through hard work and will not tolerate it being accessible only through digital means, just like millions of citizens across the country.

Yours sincerely,

[Your Name]
