A brand new website www.saynotogeorge.co.uk has been launched with the intention of showing just how detrimental the Chancellor’s proposed tax changes will be to many people, as well as landlords.
Two Peterborough based property investors were appalled by the badly thought through proposals announced by George Osborne in his summer budget and have compiled a website explaining how ordinary folk will be badly hurt by the change.
Speaking on behalf of them both, John McKay said “The Chancellor has made an outrageous attack on property people, many of whom voted for the Conservatives in the election. What he seems to not understand , or care about, is how this change will necessitate increased rents and/or cause hundreds of thousands of people to be made homeless. We simply MUST stop this tax change’’.
Mark Alexander, founder of Property118.com said “saynotogeorge.co.uk is a superb aid to members of the various groups lobbying against George Osborne’s tax proposals. I am linking my letters and emails to the relevant pages of the saynotogeorge.co.uk website, e.g. the tenants page in emails to tenants, the letting agents page in emails to letting agents etc. I would urge others to follow a similar tactic and also to post links to the website in social media, e.g. to post comments on Facebook with a link to the website”
Neil Patterson, also a Partner in Property118.com added “signing the Petition is a great start, sharing the Petition and getting others to sign by alerting them to the relevant section of saynotogeorge.co.uk will also help. I’d like to think people will want to take control of their destiny though and not just leave it at that. We are therefore asking people to volunteer 15 minutes a day to conduct some additional lobbying. We will provide ideas, templates, links to contacts etc. if you decide to sign up, but feel free to do your own thing too. Nobody has a monopoly on good ideas!”
