Also in the UK.....please sign this petition.

We need to clamp down on tax evasion by Big Business. That would bring in billions.

Austerity NEVER WORKS the way the Politicians in the grip of the 1% SAY it's going to. It ONLY benefits the already-filthy-rich - and that's exactly the POINT of it.

The Conservative Pols can't keep on fooling ALL OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME - the 99% is sure as heck CATCHING ON, finally, and REACTING.

I think, really, that austerity is more or less a last ditch attempt to bleed the last drop from the less fortunate, when they are already tapped out. From the standpoint of the elites, it benefits them if it kills off the poor at that point.

Very pleased to learn about this. UK has my compassion since returning Cameron to office.
