I've just signed's petition for a British 'New Deal': calling on our government to supplement the banking bail-out with a stimulus package for other areas of the economy, which will create jobs now and lay the foundations for a greener, fairer society.

We need to send a clear message to politicians, telling them that they cannot spend billions rescuing the richest without investing in the rest of us.

Britain cannot go back to the pre-crisis status quo, with its growing inequalities and its dependence on the financial sector- we have to move forward to a socially and environmentally sustainable future. You can sign the petition by visiting But act fast- the petition will close on 2 March.

Thank you!
