STOP using OUR money to finance Private Corporations; REPAY it into Public Services

This petition had 1,203 supporters


In your emergency budget, you made a further £12Bn in Cuts to the Welfare Budget alone, creating further financial devastation to the poorest; you justify this by claiming you're 'balancing the UK' books'.

Yet in 2013 alone you handed over £93 BILLION in Corporate Welfare; this is money given to Private Companies and is taken from the People.

We demand the Chancellor STOP funding Private Companies and reinvest this Money in the NHS, Justice, Welfare and other Public Service. 

An example of such is AstraZeneca, after accessing a £5m government grant to develop its research and development centre at Alderley Park, Cheshire; closed five months later, announcing it was closing the plant and shedding 2,100 jobs. You were the MP responsible!

It is time you and the the Government remembered - the Nations wealth paid for by Peoples Taxes. belongs to The People and NOT you; We demand you Reclaim OUR Money.
