‘Biggest ever’ UKuncut protest on Sunday

The decentralised protest group UKuncut are holding their ‘biggest ever’ day of protest on Sunday Jan 30th.

They have also listed more targets, with dozens of actions listed across the country for the big day.

Alongside Vodafone and Topshop, Boots and Tesco have also been added to the list. Protesters are free to choose whoever they want to protest against.

The increasing profile of UKuncut has also put pressure on the HMRC over the way it audits companies.

The Financial Times reported earlier this month:

I learn that HMRC has stepped up its inquiries into alleged leaks by its own officials following complaints about the private financial details of groups such as Vodafone appearing in the press. Five officials have been taken off long-standing corporate investigations and given other work. So great is the concern that the National Audit Office is now launching an inquiry into the way that HMRC reaches tax settlements with major clients. When the NAO report comes out, top tax officials can expect a grilling from MPs on the public accounts committee.

The FT also reported that there were concerns within the HMRC at the approach being taken towards companies.

Hartnett loyalists defend his stance but other officials accuse him of high-handedly ignoring proper procedures and overriding their inquiries at an advanced stage.

Harnett reportedly negotiated the easy settlement with Vodafone.

By taking the protests to Vodafone and Topshop, the UKuncut protests have forced the issue even within the HMRC.

So “decentralised” all of these actions are being told to happen on one day.

Who are the real leaders of UK Uncut?

That’s right – Aaron came to me in a dream, shirtless, and told me that I had to take action on January 30th. The conspiracy has been revealed!!!
