Do the Math!

1000
people
have seen their
wealth increase
by
£155bn
since the
crisis
began.
That’s enough to pay off the deficit of
£119bn
and have change.

Meanwhile 19 US owned multinational companies are paying about 3% tax on their earnings in the UK.

A roll call of corporate rogues who are milking the country
The scale of unpaid tax now outstrips the entire deficit. Forcing the elite to pay up is a matter of both justice and necessity
