The Government should reverse damaging austerity, and replace it with a new set of policies providing us with a fair, sustainable and secure future. We will no longer tolerate politicians looking out for themselves and for the rich and powerful. Our political representatives must start governing in the interests of the majority. We, the undersigned, demand:

  • Re-nationalise our services & remove private profit from health, education and social services
  • A statutory living wage, abolish zero hour contracts, end the wage freeze
  • Invest in building social housing, abolish the bedroom tax & place a cap on private rents
  • A higher tax on the rich & a clamp down on tax avoidance
  • Reverse all spending cuts
  • Invest in creating green jobs
  • Increases to welfare and pensions should be tied to inflation
  • A stop to scapegoating of immigrants or those on welfare
  • A publically owned, democratic banking system
  • End the cost of war in blood and money: no military interventions, no Trident replacement

    The “Austerity” policy that the far right bang on about has no basis in economics and is all about dogma. It is s very simple smokescreen to enable the shift of money and power from the workers and citizens to a select few, very wealthy, individuals. While the poor have suffered draconian cuts (the worst in 100 years) the very rich have increased their wealth, in the last year alone, by 15%. There is NO “deficit” : the capitalist system has just re-aligned itself back to the 1920s. The money is there, it is just being used for the benefit of a few.

    The third phase of this ‘Thatcherite Revelution’ must be stoped now before it has gone so far that it will be, almost if not impossible, to reverse the damage already done by Thatcher & Smith; Blair & Brown; and now Cameron, Osborne, Clegg & Cable.
