Petition for plan B

This blog is really an excuse to put out this cartoon from local artist Russ - only got it today but made me smile - had to put it here even if it is a couple of days late. As I've reported on this blog it still seems to be government policy to help the bankers - see here....also today Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams calls for new tax on bankers - see Telegraph here.......so to a related issue....

The Government's economic 'Plan A' isn't working. The UK jobless total is now at its highest for over 17 years. Compass have just set up a new online petition calling for a Plan B based on reversing cuts to public sector jobs and creating a British Investment Bank to invest in low carbon housing, transport and renewable energy. Add your name now and join the campaign here.
