Northern Rock Petition
The Lib-Dems have started an on-line petition:

Gordon Brown is paying out billion of pounds of taxpayers' money in loans to bail out the Northern Rock bank.

But he is refusing to tell us how much of our money he is spending, and even whether it is ever going to be paid back in full.

When taxpayers' money is being used, we should be told how much.

Media reports suggest as much as £24 billion has been lent, but Gordon Brown is refusing to tell the country just how much – and refusing to give a commitment that all the money will be paid back with the correct amount of interest.

£24 billion is equivalent to twice the amount of public expenditure on primary schools every year, and four times the international aid budget!

Gordon Brown should come clean on Northern Rock - it's our money, not his!

Back the campaign by signing our petition:

We, the undersigned, believe that Gordon Brown should come clean on Northern Rock. He must reveal how much of our money he has lent the bank, and tell us when they will pay it back.

It isn't much, but this petition seems to be the only game in town at the moment. I hope that all my readers will click over there and sign it.
