Class War Autumn Statement

As George Osborne gave his Autumn statement in Parliament on 25th November, announcing both more austerity and yet more deficit, Class War activists visited his family business, Osborne & Little on the King’s Road, London.

They were there to protest, that despite massive turnover, and excellent remunerations to top staff and shareholders, the business has somehow contrived to pay virtually no corporation tax over the past few years, and in one recent year it even acquired a tax rebate of £12,000 due to some creative accounting.

The group of fewer than a dozen activists held a large banner and some small placards outside the shop, and engaged with locals, while police stood in front of the doors, and another twenty officers lurked in vans round the corner.
