Kilmartin Glen…

Here’s something dead good about Kilmartin Glen….


And here’s our tuppenceworths …..



Tax the rich to help the poor….

That’s the way to do it.  I received this from TAXJUSTICE.UK…..

“We’ve been busy this week. We launched research showing how £37 billion a year could be raised through five simple changes to the tax system. Five changes that would see the super rich taxed more.  Our research was picked up by The Guardian. And Labour MP Clive Lewis quoted our recommendations live on the BBC while making a case for wealth taxes.  The research has been shared thousands of times on Twitter and Facebook. It’s been shared on Twitter by journalist George Monbiot and by Paul Lewis of BBC Radio 4’s Money Box. And by politicians including Marsha de Cordova MP, Beth Winter MP and Katy Clark MSP.

The revenue from wealth taxes could be used to fund our struggling NHS and public services. Spending cuts mooted by the government are not inevitable. There is an alternative.

Sign the petition: protect our NHS

We’ve launched a new petition to make sure Rishi Sunak can’t ignore this issue.   We’re demanding the government urgently avoid any cuts to the NHS and public services. Instead Rishi Sunak should introduce taxes on the super rich.

Will you support taxes on the super rich to stop cuts to the NHS and public services?

Sign the petition

With your backing we can make the super rich pay more tax to support our public services.

Cost of living scandal

Our tax system must take more from the rich to support everyone struggling with the cost of living crisis. We’re making strides towards achieving this.

Labour leader Keir Starmer was pushing for the abolition of non-dom status at Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday.

I was on LBC News on Tuesday, setting out just how damaging cuts to public services would be in the midst of a cost of living crisis.

Today we’re launching the Stop the Squeeze campaign. We’re demanding that Rishi Sunak reject the failed economics of the past and pursue bolder solutions to solve the cost of living crisis. You can read more about it here in The Guardian.

The campaign brings together trade unions, charities, campaign groups, including Greenpeace, Save the Children and Oxfam. Follow the campaign on Twitter.

Can you help us spread the word about taxing wealth by sharing our Tweet, blog and Facebook post?

Thank you so much for your support and interest in our work. Together we’re making strides towards real tax justice for everyone.
