This video is from the PCS trade union. It challenges the myth put around by the government (and other establishment bodies) that ‘there is no alternative’ to draconian public spending cuts being imposed on the ‘little’ people, to tackle the budget deficit.
Government ministers are fond of referring to people who do not accept their prescription, as ‘deficit deniers’ but there is another way as this video points out. Tax avoidance and evasion costs the country billions of pounds, but there is no real attempt to stop this. Contrast this with the time and effort which goes into the relatively minor loss of revenue that is down to fraudulent benefit claims.
