We need all Labour councillors - especially in areas where there is a Lib/Dem MP - to table a motion for the council backing the local people, pensioners, community groups, businesses and charities who will be hit by the increase and calling on all the local MPs to vote against.
The VAT increase is unfair - especially on pensioners. We need anti-VAT increase petitions from all areas which we can present to Nick Clegg. The Lib/Dem MPs were elected only last month fighting AGAINST a Tory VAT bombshell. Surely they can't vote FOR it now. Make them think again and keep their election promise.
