"Which is why we will fight to introduce a High Pay Commission to ensure bankers and other highly paid executives in the private and public sectors are not rewarded for their failure."
Scare off the best competitive employees.
"We will fight for a fair financial deal, with community banks, credit unions and mutuals. This will ensure those who need financial help are given realistic loans, so they can survive the current economic hardship that we are facing today."
Destroy our rating, and our position as the financial capital of the world.
"for all homes that need it, with priority for pensioners and those living in fuel poverty. We aim to insulate 4 million homes every year."
The plight of the middle classes, again
"Right now Britain has a shortage of affordable and good quality housing to buy or rent."
No we dont
"•Bringing back into use Britain's 300,000 long-term empty private sector homes
•Renovating Britain's 37,000 empty council homes to help cut waiting lists"
"We want to make it easier for people to get on the property ladder,"
That was the problem in the first place ... housing boom
"An immediate £44bn package of measures would include workforce training, investment in renewables, public transport, insulation, social housing and waste management."
That's right, do what labour did and ruin the deficit, and punish future generations with more debt/inflation.
"The Green Party will fight for a National Minimum Wage of 60% of net national average earnings (currently this would mean a minimum wage of £8.10 per hour)."
Mental, they have all the economic academics against them on this, its common sense about the minimum wage level.
"We would spend £1.5bn subsidising existing public transport to make fares up to 10% cheaper and £30bn over the Parliament on investing in a better system."
How do they know? Subsidies will make fares more expensive (mal-incentive) because they are planning on firstly municipalizing the system, and don't have a timetable for public ownership.
"We will pledge to double spending on youth services, spending an extra £1bn a year so that local councils can provide a variety of activities that give young people fun and affordable things to do."
Again, the deficit, and FFS young people already have all the ******* opportunities presented to them.
They have left out how they would fund all this, the taxation, borrowing, areas, foreign policy, our deficit, immigration.
Not a good idea.
