Political campaigner Peter Tatchell also spoke to the crowds and proposed a one-off 20 per cent emergency tax on the net wealth of the richest 10 per cent of the UK population. He also wants the introduction of a 'Tobin Tax' on financial transactions. He said: 'The richest 10 per cent of the UK population have a combined personal wealth of Â£4 million, million. A one-off 20 per cent tax on those people would raise Â£800 billion. 'Those people can afford it, they'd feel no pain, they're so fabulously wealthy. With that sum of money you could pay off the entire government deficit. No need for any public spending cuts.' At the same time, he said a Tobin Tax would 'reduce speculation and be good for the economy, and raise at least Â£100 billion a year. Within two years this would enable us to clear the entire Government deficit.' 'Rich people who are not prepared to pay their way are traitors to this country, they're putting their own personal selfishness before the interests of the public,' he added.
