Spending cuts or tax rises?

A new ComRes poll reports that more people would prefer a tax rise to spending cuts:

"I would be prepared to pay more income tax rather than see public services cut
Agree 48%
Disagree 45%
DK 7% "

The Green Party is the only Westminster party which has consistently argued for a fairer tax system rather than spending cuts which will tear our public services to shreds leaving the weak and vulnerable at the mercy of the market.

I believe we need a broad anti-cuts movement nationally bringing together churches and other religious groups, with trade unionists and other progressives. To make this happen we need local meetings to start building.
