Robin Hood Tax is Coming – Common Sense at Last!

January 24th, 2013

Some really good news and some bad news that is shameful for the British government:

The good news: Robin Hood Tax is being implemented!

This week, the European Union agreed that 11 European countries – including the biggest economies Germany and France – can set up a financial transaction tax to make the banks pay for the financial crisis they created. 23 of the 27 EU states voted for this tax – a huge 87% majority.

The bad news: The UK was the only big economy to abstain – leaving Prime Minister David Cameron more isolated than ever.
To remind you of what this is all about have a look at Bill Nighy explaining it in this memorable clip. Can someone keep playing it to Mr Cameron and his mates please?

  1. Do you know if there are any pressure groups formed to apply pressure to Cameron to change his mind?
