THE PINNACLE of Perfidious Albion: George Osborne mounts legal challenge to Robin Hood Tax

13 05 03 Facebook_RHTFrom the co-ordinator of the Robin Hood Tax campaign: “Unbelievably, the UK has mounted a legal challenge to the 11 European countries who are now moving forward to introduce an FTT worth a potential 40 billion euros in 2014. My first message to you is to ask that you to join onto an urgent action to George Osborne to get the UK government to drop this legal challenge.

As a quick bit of context, as of Jan 22nd this year the campaign made a serious breakthrough when European Finance Ministers approved that the FTT could be implemented by 11 countries under a rarely used procedure called “Enhanced Cooperation”. This means that the countries like the UK that are against FTT progress have effectively been sidelined. This jolted the financial sector lobby into action and they have started attacking the FTT in the media on a regular basis.

This should not dishearten us. That our opponents are now expending time, money and political capital to lash out at Robin Hood is a clear signal that we are in fact winning. That said there is no room for complacency, we have a lot to do, not least to strongly oppose George Osborne’s attempt to stop the European FTT. That’s where we need your help —

Today we’ve launched an e-action targeting George Osborne to RHT supporters. Please find the link here: http://e-activist.com/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=142&ea.campaign.id=20299

Please help snowball it.There are a few different ways your organisation can support the campaign through social media or emails to supporters — here is some suggested copy:

Here’s how I modified the campaign letter.:
Dear George Osborne,
I am writing to ask you to drop your legal challenge to the Robin Hood Tax.
I suggest you look at “What’s dishonest about our money system” and think again, as an analyst, not as a Rothschild banker. http://bit.ly/mUisJB
First, taxpayers are expected to bail out the banks. Then you are threatening this tiny progress of Robin Hood taxing with your legal challenge. Only to pay your lawyer friends? No austerity cuts for them?
Whilst you justify this course of action as defending British interests — it is really about defending the interests of the financial sector – which has been KILLING the real economy and created more white collar criminals than I wish I knew. See www.victims-unite.net.
To mount a legal challenge is the pinnacle of ‘perfidious Albion‘.
I ask you to drop it today.

    2) SICK? WHO GIVES ATOS?
    [ Atos is the private company appointed by the british goverment to assess sick and disabled people and to cut benefits ]
    A sick person died after being told to get a job as his heart condition wasn’t “life-threatening”.

    3) ATOS MACHT FREI – ATOS ORIGIN TEAM UP WITH GAS CHAMBER FIRM!
    Atos Origin, the poverty pimps currently pocketing hundreds of millions harassing people who are claiming sickness or disability benefits have teamed up with manufacturers of the holocaust’s gas chambers Siemens.
    Siemens will contribute its Siemens IT Solutions & Services for €850-million to Atos Origin and become a shareholder of Atos Origin with a 15% stake.
    Siemens are most famous for their use of slave labour during the holocaust. Prisoners were utilised by Siemens to build the gas chambers in which they would eventually be murdered…………..

    6) THIS GOVERNMENT (Aided by ATOS) KILLS!
    ” A Freedom of Information document from the DWP has revealed that rather than an average of 32 deaths per week as a result of Welfare Reform that figure has now risen to an average of 73 deaths per week!
    When is this going to stop?! When are people going to wake up and help us fight against this government?! We need help!
    How many more vulnerable, sick and disabled people have to die before something is done?!
    As a disabled person, I don’t want to live in this country any more.”
    ” People are being left with nothing! Vulnerable, sick and disabled people are being left destitute after having their benefits wrongly cut, by a cruel and callous government!”
