Tough Economic Decisions

I KNOW we are in difficult economic times but there is one easy decision that could spare a lot of the ‘tough ones’.

I KNOW we are in difficult economic times but there is one easy decision that could spare a lot of the ‘tough ones’. A tax on the banks could raise �20 billion in the UK to help those hit by the financial crisis in this country and around the world. For every cut I hear the Government announce I keep asking: could a tax on the banks have paid for that?

The situation we find ourselves in started in the financial sector and we spent �1.4 trillion bailing them out. We are all paying for a party we weren’t quite invited to. I want to see my MP and leaders start fighting for a tax that would make Robin Hood proud.
