Caroline Lucas MP speaks at student fees protest

December 12, 2010

What a breath of fresh air is Caroline Lucas MP!

One could not sum up better why people are fighting the public spending cuts.

Were the government to force the tax avoiders to pay their tax there would be no need for any public spending cuts as there would be no Budget Deficit.

There is a Big Society. It is those who are taking to the streets to defeat the reactionary polices emerging almost every day from this ConDem government. It is those who are taking to the streets to demand accountability and fairness and transparency.

I am pleased to say I have known Caroline for ten years or more and it is an honour to be able to count her as a good friend.

Grateful Vodafone executives say a big thank you to Chancellor George Osborne for letting them off a £6 billion unpaid tax bill. And less we forget, a little helping hand in India too.

For the second weekend running, Vodafone stores across the country were closed in protest at their unpaid £6 billion tax bill.
