The Mirror today reports that George Osborne is to slash a FURTHER £20 BILLION from almost every Govt. Dept, including of course, the DWP in November’s budget.
The question I believe the Nation ought to be asking is WHY, particularly when in one year he granted Private Corporations nearly FIVE TIMES this amount in Corporate Welfare?
In 2013 alone £93 BILLION was given away to Private Companies, including a £FIVE MILLION government grant to AstraZeneca; supposedly to develop its research and development centre at Alderley Park, Cheshire. In just five months, the same company closed the plant along with 2,100 jobs; I don’t suppose this has anything to do with the project being in Osborne’s constituency?
To this end I’ve stated a petition on Change.org demanded Osborne STOP using OUR money to finance Private Corporations and to REPAY it into Public Services. I have no expectations of this happening but maybe if the people knew precisely where their direct and indirect Taxes were being spent, they might just recognise the only reason for the Tory Austerity budget was to further enrich themselves and their friends?
Come on people let’s spread the TRUTH, we might just wake the people up – and What have we left to lose?
