Add your voice to say no to cuts

I've already added my voice to the 'million voices' - see here - you can add yours here: www.unison.org.uk/million/index.asp

They also have a place where you can enter in your postcode to see what services maybe hit locally. I am not sure how well that works but have a look here: www.unison.org.uk/million/services.php

I tried to leave this comment saying: As the Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz explains: "If you introduce austerity measures, the amount you can raise in tax falls, and welfare payments go up – so you don't have enough money to pay your debts anyway." These savage cuts are economic inevitability. They are an ideological choice that will hit the most vulnerable members of our communities hardest. We should be asking those best able to pay, to foot the bill through fairer taxation. The UK is one of the most unequal societies in Europe. The Green party have released a report to show how the cuts can be avoided.

But you only get 140 letters so had to cut it short!

Some of the UK's poorest families have been hit by more than 100 unfair spending cuts during the first 100 days of the new Government,
