Osborne’s austerity is a serial failure

Economist Michael Burke writes exclusively for the People's Assembly Against Austerity.

George Osborne is once again set to impose austerity, cutting jobs, pensions, public services and social welfare. The pretence is that this is supposed to reduce the public sector deficit. But the last time he did this the economy slowed to a crawl and in 2012 the deficit actually rose.

NHS Reinstatement Bill Day of Action

On Friday 11 March, the National Health Service Bill 2015-16 will have its second reading in Parliament, tabled by Green MP, Caroline Lucas. It currently has the support of 76 MPs including Lucas, Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell. We need your support to get more MPs to be present. Please support the Day of Action that day.

 

The Health & Social Care Act 2012 (HSCA) was implemented by the Coalition Government in April 2013 and it has thrown England’s NHS into a destructive, dangerous, disorganisation.
