    I'll admit our manifesto isn't the prettiest (I'd say the Tories have the nicest looking manifesto) but it seems we're the only party actually putting forward policies to tackle issues in pretty much all areas.
    And Labour's is barely readable, they don't even use the Labour Rose, I want them to publish a manifesto covered in Lenin.

    Affordable housing is the biggest single issue facing many young and not so young people in this country, which is why it is the matter that we Greens have put as the first area in our manifesto, with practical and deliverable proposals.

    The Tories and Labour do not even feature it at all in their manifestos, and UKIP only refer to it indirectly.

    Vote Green for real change.

    But how are you going to pay for it?

    Where are your economic policies, or is that just meant to run itself?

    Where are your foreign policies? Or Defence?

    This goes for a number of parties

    Did I just see another Labour lie, mind pointing out which bill tried to abolish Prisons put forwards jointly by UKIP and the TSR Tories?
    The Abolition of Prisons Bill, brought forward by Adam and seconded by Mobbsy?

    I'm not sure. The Nat libs have disappointed me but I think I like the greens.

    I'm afraid that as your account has fewer than 100 posts it will be discounted before the results are revealed anyway.

    Cheers for @ing me Petros.

    I doesn't work for me too. Andy98
    That's odd - I'm not sure really what I can do about that other than to see if Little Toy Gun has it in another file format as it works for me. May I enquire as to which operating system you and Jammy Duel are using?

    May i point out to the electors that only one party has a set of comprehensive infrastructure plans ready to go.

    Spoiler:
    Show




    Conservative Party Infrastructure Plans for the 22nd and 23rd parliaments.

    Working with the Shadow Secretaries Of State for the Treasury and department of local government, the Conservative Party Shadow Secretary Of State for Infrastructure is pleased to be able to release this comprehensive set of infrastructure proposals for the 22nd and 23rd parliament. These bills will be fully costed, detailed and paid for however in this exclusive article we offer the House a taste of things to come and evidence of our ambition for a greater and more prosperous United Kingdom.

    Energy

    Smart meters to become mandatory by 2025 on all residential and commercial property for electricity, gas and water.
    Ground source heat pumps to become mandatory for all new build residential and commercial property by 2025.
    By 2030 new residential property developments of more than 100 should produce enough energy to heat their water all year (on average) from renewable sources - Micro generation (stick a solar panel up, wind turbine down the road ect..).
    Geothermal energy should be given priority in renewable generation with a goal of producing enough to heat all UK homes by 2030.
    Approval of UK-Iceland energy link.
    Abolition of VAT on all UK energy bills.
    National Grid to become publicly owned (49% to be floated - Statoil model - excessive profit margins).
    All new electric transmission cables are to be underground from 2018.
    Tax breaks and other incentives for the development of wireless and superconducting transmission.
    All 'green' taxes to be abolished and replaced with a Carbon Tax on production

    Water

    3 desalination plants to be based in East Anglia, the South East and Greater London
    Complete replacement of all Victorian water transmission by 2050
    Water transmission and generation to be split. Current water market to be modeled similar to energy market (competing producers and retailers, public transmitter).

    Housing

    Taxes on all residential construction developments to be abolished when purchased by a first time buyer - like the starter homes.
    State to build 1 million social houses by 2025 in addition to whatever the private sector produces. Will be restricted to the core 8 cities, Greater London and Southampton. Right to Buy to be as generous as possible - Think the ultimate mix of Thatcher and MacMillan.
    Reduced planning objection period.

    Transport

    Airport/runway expansion to be permitted at any airport in the core 8 cities, London or Southampton which can fund the development wholly through private capital.
    Trains..
    - HS2 - Amended to run via Nottingham and Sheffield City Centers
    - HS3 - Full support by 2030
    - Electrification of Great Western Mainline - Full support
    - Electrification of Cross Country franchise between Bristol and Sheffield by 2030 including spur from Birmingham to Nottingham
    - Electrification of Midlands Main line - Support with electrification of the Nottingham to Sheffield stretch by 2030
    - To alleviate future capacity constraints government will also consider the merits of reintroducing an amended Grand Central express Line running from Reading-Nottingham-Sheffield where it will split and go Sheffield-Manchester-Liverpool and Sheffield-Leeds-Newcastle.

    Where the private sector will provide the capital free of subsidy or guarantee, toll roads will be permitted. Any firm building and operating a toll road must evidence capital availability to remove the road should a sale be unable to occur.

    Broadband

    Infrastructure and retail to be split.
    Statoil modeled public firm to be given responsibility over digital infrastructure
    Gigabit fiber optic infrastructure to replace current stock in all core 8 cities plus Southampton and Greater London by 2025
    Rural infrastructure speeds will double by 2025 subject to a review highlighting the most efficient ways to deliver this goal.
