This petition was submitted during the 2010–2015 Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition government
Petition Stop spending all of our money in London and share it between the rest of the country.
Too much of OUR money is spent in London, at the expense of the rest of the country,
Billions have been paid into financial institutions in the City, with little or no benefit in return.
Almost 90% of taxpayers live in the rest of the country and get scant reward for propping up people with poor business acumen. This is borne out by higher than targeted inflation, interest rates, poor savers' rates, poor service and mis-selling by banks, low business confidence, immoral bonuses for poor performance etc.
UK needs are NOT just the needs of London.
Billions have been spent on the Olympics, with the legacy almost solely benefiting Londoners and those in the South East of the country. The rest of the country now needs to be provided with the means to pull the country back from the brink. They have the abilities to perform, but need the wherewithal to succeed.
