Closing the Gap

Just voted to Close the Gap between rich and poor in the UK, and you can too.

The gap between rich and poor in the UK is wider than at any time in the past 40 years. Recent research shows that inequality is not only unfair for those at the bottom - it is also linked to all kinds of social problems that affect rich and poor alike. The gap hurts us all.

Campaigners have already lobbied over 230 MPs, persuading many of them to sign a 'Poverty Pledge'. It's vital that we keep up the pressure on our politicians as the General Election approaches.

I've joined in an online action calling for policies that will close the gap and help us build a fairer society. My message will be delivered to Gordon Brown in October. Please add your message too!

Please take part - it only takes a couple of minutes. We need as many people as possible to join in before the end of September. Visit the website now:

With a General Election looming, we must make all our politicians understand that the yawning gap between rich and poor is unacceptable.
