TAX - Tell the Chancellor to tax bankers' bonuses - email him now.
The chancellor is considering introducing a windfall tax on bank bonuses. Email him now to tell him he should.
The banks are fighting back. They're using all their lobbying power to try to stop the Chancellor's plans, even claiming that taxing their bonuses would breach their human rights.
The government says it will make its decision "in the next 48 hours". That means we've got 48 hours to outweigh the banks' lobbying pressure. Together we need to send Alistair Darling a clear message that after the taxpayer has spent billions bailing out the banks, it's only fair to put a tax on their bonuses.
Many families in the UK are facing a tough, recession-hit christmas. Millions of people have lost their jobs or their homes, or suffered the worry that it might happen to them. Meanwhile, over 5000 bankers are currently expecting to get a bonus of over £1million.
Together we can send a powerful message to the chancellor. Click "participate" to join in - it'll only take 2 minutes.
