im not usually one to take notice of shiz going on in the world of politics and money – i normally switch over when the news comes on – far too depressing. but  my brother mentioned this robin hood tax and i decided to look it up.

basic concept it is that for each bank transaction, the banks pay 0.05% in tax, generating over £50 billion each year for the public benefit. this could cover the schools, NHS, education etc. the banks can afford it. the systems are in place to collect it. its our parents money that funds all their pay rises. it won’t affect ordinary members of the public, their bank accounts or their savings. it’s fair, it’s timely, and it’s possible. take a look.
