Bridget says “I’m backing Bingo” as campaigners take tax fight to Westminster
Bridget Fox, Liberal Democrat candidate for Islington South and Finsbury, spoke out today against the proposed increase in tax on bingo from 15% to 22%.
Bridget says “You don’t have to be a bingo player to see that bingo halls matter. They provide a safe, inexpensive and friendly day out for many people. Online bingo is just not the same.”
Bridget is giving her full backing to the Back Bingo campaign, which is opposing the new tax.
Bridget says, “If the Government over-taxes bingo, more venues will be lost. This is yet another example of the Labour Government making changes that hit ordinary working people and pensioners hard.”
