Workers worried by water charges in Kent and south-east England have staged a campaign to stop the scheme being scrapped.
A group called Water Protectors have warned that the UK’s controversial water charges have become “the 수원안마lifeblood of business in the UK” with the government backing the scheme until the time a publ더킹 카지노ic vote of no confidence is triggered.
The move comes amid growing political pressure on MPs to block the scheme by allowing a public vote on the vote to be taken, but some members are believed to fear a backlash should they lose the power to block it.
Supporters claim the government has backed down because it believes water charges are not working.
“This is the largest tax increase in our history, and it is costing the UK billions,” John Longworth, chairman of Water Protectors said last month.
“Business and customers can feel the full impact of this hike on their bottom line and our nation’s water supply.”
He said Water Protectors hoped to convince the government to give the scheme a second try, saying: “We’ve been inundated with a response from the public saying this is not a good deal. If it wasn’t for people like us, this would never have been discussed.”
He added: “For many of us, this is a fundamental debate and we’ve been trying to engage people so they are part of the discussion.
“To see people get involved in our struggle to prevent this scheme being rolled out, and to demonstrate to MPs at all levels that the public don’t want this scheme, is an incredible honour.”
In a bid to change the public’s opinion of the government’s handling of water charges, the group has launched a campaign, ‘No to No Charges’, by taking to the streets across the country on Monday 11 June.
They will also raise money on their website, and hope to raise enough to buy food.
The water charge is currently charged to all non-business and community use water services and to other services and infrastructure, including hospitals and schools.
The government has proposed it be removed from the Energy Bill by 1 December 2019.
A Department of Environment spokesperson said: “We have taken some decisions today which will not impact on future charges.
“We have taken steps to implement a review to deliver on the UK Government’s commitment in March to have water charges phased 중국 마사지out over several years, for a further eight years for those who are paying and for everyone else.”
The spokesperson added: “The UK ha
