New website will map cuts and challenge Osbornomics

Things will be a little quieter here over the next month, while we help to launch False Economy. Here is how the site describes itself:

False Economy
False Economy is for everyone concerned about the impact of the government’s spending cuts on their community, their family or their job.

It is brought to you by local campaigners, those who rely on or support good public services and those who work to supply them.

False Economy’s supporters want to build the broadest possible movement that can get the government to change direction.

Of course the country has been damaged by the recession, but there are alternatives to these deep, rapid cuts.

The government’s cuts are unfair, risk the fragile economic recovery and fail to make those who caused the crash pay a proper contribution through the tax system to clearing up the mess they made.

False Economy is not a top-down national organisation.

We recognise that there will be many campaigns against cuts, with some based locally, others that link up people in particular sectors, and others that bring together national organisations. Not all will agree on every aspect or share the same priorities.

But while we welcome and respect this diversity, we believe that we will be more effective when we work together, share information and pool resources.

False Economy will grow and develop as the campaign develops, but we launch with these initial objectives:

  • To gather and map information and personal testimony about the cuts and their effects
  • To show that there are alternative economic approaches
  • To provide resources and tools for campaigners and campaign groups

False Economy is for everyone who thinks the coalition is cutting too much, too fast and wants to do something about it.

Head over to False Economy now and join its mailing list and social networks to keep up-to-date with developments.

Thank goodness for The Other Taxpayers Alliance - so much better than the so-called Taxpayers’ Alliance!

A ‘taxpayers alliance’ of non-Ayn Rand worshipping oddballs - that’s a refreshing change!

i guess they think if you leave the corps alone or reduced the tax they’ll be only too willing to cough up..er right..
