Privatise National Health Service (NHS) - Provide a subsidy for anyone earning less than the new 2nd highest rate of income tax.
Currently the only incentive for doctors etc to treat you well is because they "care", doctor get paid whether you live or die and whether they treat you badly or well, whether they treat you promptly or have hours waiting in A&E. I believe a private health care system will be more effecient and will allow me to save a lot of money to be given out in tax cuts to boost the economy and get people working and lead to greater prosperity for all.
Reduce all Benefits levels by 15% (see VAT tax reduction)
Will give me greater scope for reducing taxes and in real terms is likely to be an increase in benefits due to all the tax cuts, but will have to be tested.
Cut university funding to all "bad" universities (Any universities that firms regard degrees as effectively pointless and a college course would be just as good)
Effectively to cut away the waste of university spending, people are usually better working or taking an apprenticeship than going to these universities and may allow for reduced tution fees depending on the funds avaliable.
Evaluate all government advice/charitable agencies/organisations with regards to reducing funding up to and including a 100% reduction.
To look for saving to fund tax decreases and eliminate any effectively pointless agencies like the "wine advice agency" etc.
Increase science research and development spending by at least 100%.
New Technology is one of the keys to economic growth and prosperity to all with new medicines, energy etc and so I believe funding should be dramaticly increased.
Evaluate all religious,cultural and recreational funding.
Much of this funding is missused and wasted, so I would evaluate all of it.
Evaluate all employment,enterprise and environment spending.
Again alot of it is missused and wasted on unsuccessful projects.
Cut all European Union Funding. (see Other)
Increase Defence budget by approximately
To better equip our troops and provide better aftercare and to increase the effectiveness of British defence from terrorism and cyber attacks.
*new* Evaluate all foreign aid to better target people in need.
*new* 10% Subsidy for all offshore nuclear power stations.
The UK will face an energy crises if something is not done soon and I believe nuclear power is the way to go as long as it is managed properly and reactors and safety procedures are kept up-to-date.
Reduce Value added Tax (VAT) to 5% from 20%
Regressive Tax and a reduction will help promote growth.
Scrap all fuel duty
The price of petrol is in every single product a ~60% reduction of the price of petrol should decrease the value of all goods, allowing creation for more jobs and attract lots of foreign direct investment from companies abroad.
Various Income Tax Changes - No one pays tax below £20,000 a year.
To help attract the most skilled people to the UK and to keep the already skilled people we have from moving abroad. Also should help work pay for people on benefits as they will pay no income tax untill they earn more than £20,000.
Scrap National Insurance
A tax on jobs is completely unacceptable when 20% of young people cant find a job, again this should help businesses be able to hire more people and get the economy moving.
Increase Taxes on (*new*, Non Pub/restaurant) alcohol, tobacco and betting.
To fund other tax decreases and discourage binge drinking, smoking and debt.
New Tax on legalised drugs at 60% (see Laws and regulation)
Adds a good source of revenue for the government.
Reduce corporation tax - Main rate to 15%
- Small profits rate to 5%
- Special rate to 10%.
To encourage more foreign direct investment and to give our companies and edge in this globalised world.
Double all Stamp duty rates but provide 0% Stamp duty for first time buyers.
The housing bubble was one of the reasons for the financial crash, I've increased this tax to discourage people from using property to make money but also provided no tax for first time buyers to help them get onto the property ladder.
5% Tax break for all new nuclear power stations.
To encourage the construction of more nuclear power stations to prevent an energy crises
Laws and regulation
Legalise many currently illegal drugs on the advice of doctors such as cannabis with strict regulation and a new 60% tax on all of the newly legalised drugs.
Many Health professionals believe that people will be better off with a heavily regulated legal drug system, it helps prevent crime and takes away revenue from dangerous criminals.
Price control of all products directly affected by fuel duty for one year to enforce a reduction in price.
To make sure that the petrol companies dont just take a 60% increase in profits.
Legalise Personal piracy for a product that has been released for one year or more.
I think alot of copyright laws are very overdone and I think one year is enough time for a person/company to make money on their product.
Set up the Nuclear Power Regulatory Comity (NPRC) to inspect all nuclear power stations every year for safety and to decide on any future regulation.
To regulate the new power stations and to keep the public safe from any however unlikely nuclear disaster.
Merge all U.K. Competition authorities into one organisation and relax monopoly regulation.
To save money by merging the authorities, monopolies and oligopolies also provide dynamic efficiency which is key for an economy moving forward. If every market was perfectly competitive you would never get any new products such as your phones or your computer or new medicines.
Ban smoking and Drug use in all non-private areas (including cars.)
To reduce the effect of passive smoking to its absolute miminmum.
New government Rule - Magic Formula - The British Government may only run a budget deficit in recessions or extreme economic circumstances.
A market economy based on debt is worse than communism, we need a market economy without debt and governments should lead from the front with this ideal.
Semi-Legalise Polygamy - Must marry all at the same time/place as to not deceive.
If you can have an affair and thats not illegal why is it illegal if you love two people and they love you, to not be able to be married together.
*new* Fully legalise gay marriage
People should be able to marry no matter what sex they are.
Leave the European Union but promote free trade and immigration with all "friendly" countries. (Free trade should be the neutral/default position)
I will change this to leave the European Union if an agreement can be kept with most countries to at least keep free trade and hopefully free immigration aswell.
Attempt to extend "Parliament Life" to eight years with a referendum after five years.
Most current government policies are very short term, I would like to help politicians create more long term policies to help the country.
More actively Persue Tax evaders
Might not be needed but may increase tax revenue slightly
So those are my current policies so would you elect me?
