Some ideas below, although some are clearly too long. Also a SN blurb suggestion at the bottom. I’d want @Floppy to review all this first!
I’ve also including links. I’d like if we can create those and have them point to pages we’ll make, specifically for this election, summarising our current policy.
A Free NHS
Free to use and free from political interference and profiteering. We don’t trust politicians with the NHS - we’ll make it independent and protect it’s funding, ending the cuts and privatisation.
Great Education for All
We want an end to school cuts, a reversing of tuition fees, properly paid teachers, state-run schools not unaccountable acadamies and a curriculum run by teachers, not politicians.
An Economy for Everyone
Tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy are harming our economy - we’ll reverse them and tax on ability to pay. We’ll abolish council tax and introduce a financial transactions tax. HRMC will be properly funded to close down tax avoidance and evasion.
Protect the Environment
Humanity is killing the earth. We will honour our commitments to international agreements on climate change, end fossil fuel subsidies and fossil fuel extraction and invest heavily in renewable energy.
Our system is unfit for purpose. We’ll make seats match votes with proportional representation, abolish the undemocratic House of Lords and let the people write a new constitution for the UK.
Invest, Invest, Invest
Instead of starving our economy through austerity, we’ll invest in it! The minimum wage will be a living wage, we’ll create a national investment bank instead of handing out free money to big banks and we’ll invest in new jobs in green technology not white elephants.
Something New blurb
Something New grew out of our frustration with politics. We do everything completely in the open and our manifesto is continually evolving based on contributions from everyday people like you. There’s no playground politics and we want policy based on evidence, not dogma. Let’s replace the system with Something New.
