Singer Lily Allen joined hundreds of protesters in London on Saturday (09Apr16) to call for British Prime Minister David Cameron's resignation.
Earlier this month (Apr16), millions of files, known as the Panama Papers, were leaked online from the database of a Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca, exposing the financial records and offshore accounts of many public figures.
In the documents, it was revealed Cameron's late father Ian, who died in 2010, ran an offshore fund under the name Blairmore Holdings, and on Thursday (07Apr16), Cameron admitted in an interview that he had a profitable stake in the fund with his wife Samantha, but they sold it before he became Prime Minister in 2010.
Cameron insisted he had paid his taxes, but Smile hitmaker Lily took to social media last week (ends08Apr16) to blast the politician for "stealing" and demand his resignation.

Ellie Goulding thinks U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron is snubbing her after refusing to meet to discuss the plight of homeless women.
Earlier this year (16) the British singer asked for a meeting with David to discuss her work with the Marylebone Project, a centre for women who have fallen on hard times in London.
According to Ellie, the political leader said no to her invitation to meet, and as a result turned his head at a recent event they both attended. The singer tells Britain's Guardian newspaper, "He saw me, but looked away."
In February the Army singer told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper she felt snubbed by the leader of the Conservative Party after she and the chief executive of the Marylebone Project, Mark Russell, received a generic letter in response declining the invitation.
Brian May expressed his delight after a police unit dedicated to protecting wildlife was saved.

Brian joined fellow animal rights activists to thank U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron after it was announced on Tuesday (01Mar16) the animal detectives' future had been secured.
"We applaud David Cameron for enabling the U.K. to lead the way in preventing crimes against wild animals," the Bohemian Rhapsody musician told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.

Jude Law was reprimanded by U.K. local government officials after a loud party hosted by the British actor enraged several of his neighbours.
The Holiday star reportedly held a birthday party for girlfriend Dr Philippa Coan at his house in Highgate, north London which continued into the early hours of Sunday (21Feb16) morning.
However, some residents were angered by the volume at which a live band was playing, and called police.
One disgruntled neighbour tells the London Evening Standard newspaper, "It was really awful, it woke me up all night. It was going on until around 5am. It was like jazz or something, but there was a real band playing, not just music."

Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo has stepped up his anti-fracking campaign by issuing a stark warning to U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron over the issue.
The Avengers star is vehemently opposed to the controversial gas extraction method amid fears it could damage the environment, and he previously lobbied to have it banned in New York.
Now Ruffalo has turned his attention to the U.K., where a number of new fracking sites are planned, and he has urged Cameron not to back the proposals.
"Mr Cameron, you're making an enormous mistake, and it's a legacy mistake. Because there's no fracking that can be done safely," he declares during a video interview with environmental campaign group Friends of the Earth. "Your people don't want it. You've already told them once before that if they didn't want it, you wouldn't push them to take it, and you're turning back on your word, sir. And what is a politician if he's not credible..."

British Rocker Glenn Tilbrook Planned To Perform A Tv Protest Against U.k. Prime Minister David Cameron When He Heard They Would Appear Together On A Show Days Before Filming.
The Squeeze singer/guitarist admits he could not resist the opportunity to make his anti-Cameron feelings known after the band was invited onto The Andrew Marr Show, a U.K. weekend political chat series.
Squeeze were on the broadcast to perform new single Cradle to the Grave and they hit headlines when Tilbrook changed part of the lyrics to criticise the U.K. government's social housing policy.
Now Tilbrook has spoken out to reveal he originally planned to rewrite the entire song for the occasion but realised that was too "ridiculous".

Squeeze changed the lyrics to song ‘From the Cradle to the Grave’ while appearing on The Andrew Marr Show where Cameron was also a guest.
British band Squeeze sent a clear message to Prime Minister David Cameron on Sunday’s edition of the ‘Andrew Marr Show’ when they changed song lyrics to criticise the ‘destruction of the welfare state’. The band appeared as the musical guests on the programme, which also featured Cameron giving his traditional new year interview.
Squeeze’s Chris Difford
When the band performed new song ‘From the Cradle to the Grave’, founding member Glenn Tilbrook sang a different version of the final verse as Cameron watched on. ‘I grew up in council housing, Part of what made Britain great, There are some here who are hellbent, On the destruction of the welfare state.’
Killing Joke Star Jaz Coleman Has Blasted The British Government For Pouring Money Into Its Controversial Nuclear Weapons Program While Slashing Spending On Public Services.
The cost of replacing a fleet of nuclear missile submarines has reached almost £5 billion, according to critics, and could soar to £40 billion.
It comes at a time when the U.K. government, led by Prime Minister David Cameron, is pushing through swathes of austerity measures to reduce spending, and Coleman is convinced the money earmarked for the Trident program should have been diverted to the country's National Health Service (NHS) budget.
He tells Q magazine, "With that money, we could revamp the NHS, but instead we're spending it on weapons of mass destruction we can't even use - the Americans have to give us permission to use Trident."
