Good Measure Campaign

It's Time to Tax Wealth

Wealth inequality in the UK is high and deeply entrenched in society. This has only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The low paid and financially insecure are especially vulnerable (including those key workers who kept the country going throughout the pandemic). Many find themselves caught in a perfect storm of reduced benefits, increased National Insurance Contributions, a cost-of-living crisis and often job insecurity. 

For some, it’s nothing short of a desperate time. 

That’s why we are calling on the UK government to introduce wealth tax on the country’s richest 1%.

We want this to be a one-off tax initially, and then for a review of the UK’s tax system so that a workable, ongoing wealth tax can be introduced in future.

We believe it’s time that those who are most able to do so, pay a Good Measure back to the society that so often serves them so well. Would you join our call and ask your MP to contact the Chancellor about this?
