The great British tax scandal

To Prime Minister David Cameron:

As citizens concerned that the government is making massive spending cuts while letting large companies avoid paying tax, we call on you to force the HMRC to reveal full details of the Vodafone and Goldman Sachs cases. We need a tax system that is transparent, immune from corporate lobbying, and ensures that Goldman Sachs and all other companies pay the full amount they owe.

Our tax chief had secret lunches with Vodafone and Goldman Sachs and then handed them billions in tax breaks – while keeping Parliament in the dark!

MPs are outraged, claiming we are owed over 25 billion pounds in back taxes from these and similar dodgy deals. But the tax agency has blocked an inquiry into the scandal and refuses to release documents to shed light on why these tax breaks were ordered in the first place.

By acting together now we can ensure full transparency on the Goldman Sachs and Vodafone deals, and get them to pay the tax they owe. Let’s turn up the heat -- sign the petition to David Cameron for tax justice -- we’ll deliver it with a splash next week.
