No Shock Doctrine for Britain – Stop the Cuts

This New Internationalist blog mentions a new web site, No Shock Doctrine for Britain.

To quote the About section of the site:

“The ‘Shock Doctrine’ has been a tool of Conservative and Neo-Liberal Governments around the world where disasters are used as an excuse to push through radical right wing policies.

In Britain, over the last 18 months, the Conservative Party has used the recession as an excuse to build a case for massive cuts to public services.

The new British Government is about to try to force through these massive and un-needed cuts to our public services in an ‘emergency budget’.

Britain has massive assets, long term debts, and very low taxes. There is no need to destroy the public services it has taken 100 years to build up in this country, and on which the majority of us depend.”

The site includes actions, frequently asked questions and resources.

There is also a random cuts generator – visit the site and see what George Osborne is cutting (and why)!

Please also have a read, if you have not already done so, of our blogs £100 Billion Lost to Tax ‘Flaws and Holes’ and Unavoidable Cuts Which Will Affect “Our Whole Way of Life”.
