A triple bill of campaign actions today. First up is this clever tool from the international Financial Transaction Tax campaign, showing you how the various EU member states are placed over the issue, and asking you to help lobby the naysayers and waverers amongst them – our own government included!
Unions Together are asking us to lobby our MPs over the Pensions Bill, seeking to get it voted down in the commons. They've had a good response already but want to make sure all MPs are aware of their constituents' concerns.
And third, Age UK don't think the Pensions Bill's proposals specifically to equalise men's and women's state pension age in November 2018, and then raise it to 66 by April 2020 (6 years early), leave enough time to plan. They are organising a post card campaign, and asking people to write to their local papers via their site.
