Deeper Cuts are the buzz words for this campaign.
Economic cuts were behind a crowd of more than 300 outside Westminster sending a message to the nation: No to Debt and No to Bailouts. The government was outlining its plans of austerity to help get the country’s economy on track. Many protested at the proposals so set up demonstrations across the country opposing the cuts.
Protest was attended by an alliance of rightwing and libertarian activists. There were members of the TaxPayers’ Alliance (TPA), the anti-Europe UK Independence party and the Freedom Association, a libertarian pressure group set up by Norris McWhirter. He co-founded the Guinness Book of Records.
Many said they believed the government was not cutting public spending deeply enough. The Conservative MPs Priti Patel and Bill Cash and the Ukip leader, Nigel Farage, made speeches, and Toby Young, the broadcaster and free school pioneer, said he would attend.
The other interesting aspect to the protest was the attendance of Nigel Farage who also agreed more cuts were necessary. He’s an outspoken politician who has a seat in the European Parliament can be influential especially with his speeches when addressing a crowd.
Deeper Cuts are behind the ‘Rally Against Debt’ protest and included support from UKIP and the TaxPayers’ Alliance.
Did you get to hear any of this? Fair for this group to demonstrate? Do you think they are justified in demonstrating? There wasn’t a huge crowd but enough to make a noise. Drop by our comment box and let us know what you think. Is it acceptable for this kind of protest to be held?
