Democracy UK followers: 305 000
Robin Hood Tax followers: 264 000
I’ve never been too great at the old bit mathematics but I would argue that it says a lot about the online community when the UK’s ‘page for politics’ only has abooouut 15% (?) more followers than Robin Hood Tax.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s an excellent thing that people are tuning into the workings of the nation but considering Downing Street was willing to look into stripping London rioters of their benefits with only 100,000 people backing it, why are campaigns like The Robin Hood Tax going virtually unnoticed?
Either way, keep up the good work in taking notice and being aware. Let’s translate Facebook ‘likes’ into votes.
Here are a few more to go liking.
