Budget – New Faces, Old Tories

The first Conservative budget in twenty years has shown nothing has changed apart from the faces.

Despite being told “we are all in it together”, today’s budget shows nothing could be further from the truth.

Alternative Budget
Green Alternative Budget

On a day when hundreds of thousands of public sector workers were told their pay would be subject to ‘restraint’ that amounts to a further 10% cut in their standard of living on top of the 20% they have already suffered, a small number of wealthy business owners were told that the tax they pay on the profits of their companies would be cut again and again and when they spend those profits on million pound mansions they will be able to pass them on tax free to their children.

The public sector workers affected include nurses, policemen, care workers and many others. The very people that supply vital services to us all day in day out will yet again be hit for the benefit of the wealthy.

Does this really sound like we are all in together?

But there is an alternative. By supporting the Green Party you are supporting a fairer society that values all people, no matter what job they may do. By supporting the Green Party you are sending a message to the government to let them know that you don’t accept tax cuts for the wealthy at the expense of our NHS, schools and police force.

Vote for change. Vote Green!
