Unite General Secretary says ‘Time to Fix the System’

2 November 2011

Len McCluskey, General Secretary of Unite has written of his support for a Robin Hood Tax.

The Robin Hood tax is a simple idea; the financial sector was instrumental in causing the greatest recession in a generation, so it’s about time it paid its fair share in sorting out the mess that has been created. And proponents of the tax say the funds generated – possibly as much as £250 billion a year – would not just be used to grow the global economy, but to protect the poorest and most vulnerable at home, to help developing countries hit by the crisis and to fight the challenge of climate change. That’s a real long term legacy for generations to come

We know that the Robin Hood tax is currently being blocked by UK prime minister David Cameron, he needs to ignore the banking lobby and listen to the people. If you haven’t already taken action click here.
