A sad fact is that these proposals would meet with varying degrees of public support.
My personal thoughts;
They include privatising the BBC,
Sure there's problem's at the Beeb, as in every organisation, but there are plenty of privatised TV companies and stations - much prefer to see the
BBC address it's problems whilst remaining publicly owned.
reintroducing National Service
This deserves consideration and debate without which I'm not entirely certain where I stand on this.
bringing back the death penalty,
Unfortunately this would get quite considerable support in some quarters - I think it would be a backwards step.
leaving the European Union,
Whether we do or don't isn't really the issue - we need an open and honest debate on the subject prior to a referendum on continued membership. The
British people never voted for political union and the transference of sovereignty.
a referendum to ban gay marriages
Don't entirely disagree with the notion of a referendum on almost anything, but I'd certainly vote against any ban.
and the renaming of the late August Bank Holiday as Margaret Thatcher Day.
I can't believe that anyone would take such an abhorent suggestion seriously.
