I was thinking what I would do to the UK if I was elected Prime Minister and I thought I would bounce my ideas off you lot to see if they hold water or not.


1) Scrap the current taxation system and replace it with one flat tax for all based on all types of renumeration set at 28% with a tax free allowance of £12,000.

2) Scrap the Trident project.

3) Scrap international aid until the budget deficit is no longer in deficit.

4) Scale down the Military to be mainly a defensive force only.

5) Change the immigration system completely so that only company sponsored people or people with certain skills can get a visa, including those from within the EU.

6) Hold a referendum on continued membership in europe.

7) Charge 7% corporation tax for UK based companies and those companies that choose to operate within the UK but have their operations based abroad will have to pay a flat 10% taxation on their UK turnover.

8) Set aside billions of pounds for state sponsored scientific research, with any patents being owned by the state.

9) Re-nationalisation of the transport infrastructure and utility companies.

10) The NHS to only treat UK Nationals, putting a full stop to health tourism to Britain.


11) The highest paid employee in a company can only be paid 12 times more than the lowest paid employee, this includes all types of renumeration including issuing of shares.


Thats just for starters, what do you think?

Sounds better than the corrupt nonsense and lies that we are currently being fed world wide!

However, my whole issue is how can anyone fix a system that was designed to fail and push the planet towards a NWO by the people who are currently running the show??

The issue is, in the eyes of the PTB, everything is going as planned! They have NO DESIRE to do the right thing by humanity, because that would be a contradiction to their plans for a one world government............

To fix any of this mess, the whole political system, which has been bought and payed for by the bankers, HAS TO GO!!! ALL OF THEM!!! Politicians are like drug dealers! You can arrest one, but there are 1000 more looking to take their place.....

Why would you renationalize transportation? The freight railways were privatised because a private company is much less bloated and much more efficient. Passenger rail is not profitable so that is still government owned, and the government still owns and maintains the track and charges for its use where as in the US the railways own their own track and right of ways. What do you see as the benefit of returning to the previous system?

Also, the trident project? Are you referring to the submarine launched missiles which are already in service? Makes little sense to scrap something that has already been deployed when the majority of costs come from development.

Passenger rail in the UK is private and the most expensive in Europe to travel on, that is why it will be re-nationalised.

I didn't realize that, good for them. You do realize if it is government owned and you get your reduced fares, you will pay the difference in taxes right?

There is no profit to be made by government wheras private companies expect a large return, so the saving will be passed on to the commuter. Anything that is essential for people to live and work should not be run by private companies. The Utility companies are all private and they make record profits year on year and never pass on the drop in Gas prices to the consumer when they happen. People's need over private greed any day of the week.

By that logic, you need to nationalize grocery stores and telecoms too. Might as well move to.collective farming as well. May I suggest a move to one of those socialist paradise countries?

In full disclosure, I am not British, nor am I versed on your politics or policies. But sharing ideas freely is a remarkable aspect of us Yanks.


1) Scrap the current taxation system and replace it with one flat tax for all based on all types of renumeration set at 28% with a tax free allowance of £12,000.


Tax codes over the industrialized nations are convoluted to benefit those who can manipulate the lawmakers and they system. I agree that a simplified tax-code, regardless of the nation, would best serve the people seeking the "best bang for their buck". Flat-tax or consumption tax are high on my list, but I lean more towards a consumption tax with rebates up to the prescribed poverty-line.


3) Scrap international aid until the budget deficit is no longer in deficit.
This one I believe is trickier than we think. While much foreign aid can probably be scraped, many trade-agreements and other diplomatic-agreements are in place that will make it legally impossible to just nix them. Phase them out and only give aid where aid should be given. Nations that align with your national principles and ideals, who offer something in return.


4) Scale down the Military to be mainly a defensive force only.
The world over.....in complete agreement!


5) Change the immigration system completely so that only company sponsored people or people with certain skills can get a visa, including those from within the EU.
So many nations need immigration reform. Here in the states, I am not sure we even have a coherent immigration policy except whatever will line and keep votes for politicians. Sadly, immigration is healthy for any nation. Smart immigration policy is needed.

7) Charge 7% corporation tax for UK based companies and those companies that choose to operate within the UK but have their operations based abroad will have to pay a flat 10% taxation on their UK turnover.

8) Set aside billions of pounds for state sponsored scientific research, with any patents being owned by the state.


9) Re-nationalisation of the transport infrastructure and utility companies.
I prefer a quasi-nationalization in regards to utilities. Private companies under regulation of the State they are operating in. Still, there needs to be more involved in the market and that can be a problem regarding infrastructure.

Regarding transportation, I will have to read up on how England handles theirs.


10) The NHS to only treat UK Nationals, putting a full stop to health tourism to Britain.
Understandable, but do you think a doctor, one trained to help people, will go for this? Are they to turn away a truly sick patient because they are not a UK National? Doctors are to know no borders in my opinion.


11) The highest paid employee in a company can only be paid 12 times more than the lowest paid employee, this includes all types of renumeration including issuing of shares.
Disagree. Wages should be regulated by fair-market prices. I know many have been exasperated. Public sector, I would agree to such measures if tweaked a bit.


Thats just for starters, what do you think?


Good start. You have ideas, not just complaints.

I used to travel the nationalised British Rail and it was dire. I am glad rail was denationalised. Nationalisation is not the answer as the State has demonstrated time and again it cannot manage the proverbial piss-up in the brewery. I do think key utility companies should be UK owned though.

To OP.

1. You have to become an MP before you have a chance at Prime Minister.
2. How do you fund all of what you want to do? It always sounds simple.

You do have some good points though.

Regards
