TaxPayers’ Alliance: ‘Stop Funding Argentina’
The TaxPayers’ Alliance has launched their latest campaign which sees them take action against British funding going to Argentina.
They are calling on the British government to oppose further loans to Argentina, from the World Bank, being underwritten by British Taxpayers; and includes an e-petition on the UK Government’s website.
As of writing the total number of signatures acquired stands at around 5,675 of the 100,000 needed to ensure debate in the House of Commons.
Argentina has been hitting the headlines in recent times over their continued disagreement of the Sovereignty of the Falklands, 30 years on from the Falklands War.
Their latest efforts to disrupt the island involve imposing an ‘economic blockade’. Not only have they have they been turning away cruise ships carrying the Union Flag, but also taking legal action against five British oil firms exploring the coast of the islands.
