No Shock Doctrine for Britain

Join the fight against the Tory/Lib Dem emergency budget

How we can still change the budget:

Posted on | July 26, 2010 | 2 Comments

No Shock - ActionGeorge Osborne’s dangerous Budget is not yet a done deal.

MPs can still make a difference by proposing and voting for amendments to remove the worst aspects of the plans as it passes through Parliament.

LibDem Deputy Leader Simon Hughes has already signalled that his MPs might take a lead in making some of these changes, and Labour MPs may be willing to take a stronger stance than before on the danger posed to the economy by cuts to benefits and services.

Even Conservatives need to hear how their constituents feel about the economic mistakes the Chancellor is making!

So, we need to contact our MPs now to get them to take action in Parliament in the coming weeks.

Our simple tool will create a letter suitable for any MP asking for their views and a promise of action. You can also add your own message before sending (so if your MP is a LibDem you can tell them you didn’t vote for these cuts!)

It takes just one minute and could make all the difference.

    I don’t actually disagree with the increase in VAT. It is a really effective way of taxing the rich, so is actually one of the most egalitarian moves of the otherwise very right wing budget.
    I am however massively concerned about the cuts in public services, they were under-stretched enough under Labour, and are the reason citizens of the UK experience human rights violations demonstrated in such high profile cases such as Baby P.
    Some of these shortcomings are disgusting and offerings are substandard to those seen in developing nations.
    Decreasing public services further will not only cause a double-dip recession but also further declines in living standards, especially child poverty, safety of women and other human rights issues particularly the dignity aspects of poverty.

    Join the fight against the Tory/Lib Dem 'savage cuts' to our public services.

    The new British Government is about to try to force through massive and un-needed cuts to our public services in an 'emergency budget'.

    Britain has massive assets, long term debts, and very low taxes.

    There is no need to destroy the public services it has taken 100 years to build up in this country, and on which the majority of us depend.

    Join the fight, today.
