Make the banks pay - not us!

I know we are in difficult economic times. But there is one easy decision that could spare a lot of the “tough ones”. A tax on the banks could raise £20billion in the UK to help those hit by the financial crisis in this country and around the world. For every cut I hear the Government announce I keep asking: could a tax on the banks have paid for that?
The situation we find ourselves in started in the financial sector and we spent £1.4trillion bailing them out. We are all paying for a party we weren’t quite invited to. I want to see my MP and leaders start fighting for a tax that would make Robin Hood proud. – Jim Taylor, Westbourne Road, N7.
