I had noticed the increase in NO votes to the Robin Hood Tax and was obviously surprised, wondering who might hack the vote… Just like the Tobin Tax, the Robin Hood Tax is a levy on financial transactions, but a fundraising exercise for public purposes: poverty and climate change.
Would you have thought that the vote rigging would trace back to a computer at Goldman Sachs???
Just google and you will see how this was obviously the best publicity the campaign could have wished for.
You can also visit the page that I put together to keep track of some of the repercussions.
Updates on the campaign here.
