    I'd like to add that I would now ban all animal rights groups after the appalling actions I read they undertake to save some Guinea Pigs or something (exuming a corpse?!!). Unbelievable.

    I don't have any groundbreaking solutions, but banning them will not solve the problem.
    I'm very quick to rule with an iron fist I admit

    If we don't ban them, perhaps we need to concentrate more resources into infiltrating the extreme groups and ensuring the "nutters" of the group are behind bars.

    Just put them in a closed pen with some maltreated lions. Makes everyone happy - they're providing valuable nutrition to their beloved poor abused creatures, and we're free of their terrorist tactics.

    Just a sly quirk about the Channel 4 (or was it BBC?) undercover journalists in the BNP meetings.

    I thought it would be, I also thought everyone here had come to accept that that "documentary" was rather flawed. They found 4-5 skinhead-type members of the BNP - put them in a pub (el vino did flow) and then got them to talk about what they'd done or would like to do. When was the last time you embellished a story when drunk? Hardly hard hitting journalism.

    Nota Bene: I'm not denying that some members of the BNP are racist :rolleyes:

    1) top rate tax on those earning £100,000 or more of 50%

    2) increased minimum wage

    3) codified republican constitution

    4) nuclear disarmament

    5) abolition of private education/healthcare and more spending on the education system and the NHS

    6) abolition of the House of Lords and Monarchy. Replace Lords with a 50% elected, 50% appointed on vocational basis

    7) increase foreign aid and drop the debts of all developing people

    8) support reform of the UN and EU though reforms which would give more powers to the UN if it was made more democratic

    9) increased taxes/fines on companies that pollute the planet or exploit their employees

    10) only fight wars with troops under UN control when approved of by a majority of UN members and in a humanitarian crisis

    totally agree.i would add minimum of 30-50 years sentences for first-degree murderers, who kill with no provocation, and we're away! that zoo guy is a joke.but pretty much sums up the tory party.i'm just glad theyre the way they are- own worst enemies.we can just sit back and relax for a few decades

    You could have just summarised it as:

    1) anarchy
    I'm not an anarchist at all.

    Well I totally disagree with most of that (in fact all of that), so I'm not going to bother asking about a lot of questions, but why do you wish to abolish private healthcare and education, and why should the security of our nation depend on the UN?

    You just do that. That was exactly the mistake that Major's government made, and if that happens then the Labour Party will be finished.

    Eh? you sound very enthusiastic about property, actually.
    That's not what I meant.

    By "force" I mean any action which involves aggression against property. So these are things like theft, arson, misappropriation, fraud, burglary, robbery, copyright violations, etc.

    In force against the person, I mean actions which involve aggression against one's physical integrity. So these are things like assault, battery, ABH, GBH, rape, murder, manslaughter, etc.

    Hmm mostly the left wing ones already mentioned but I would certainly not abolish private education and healthcare!

    Nor would I abolsih the monarchy (Pepaim - what head of state would you have us follow?)

    Dropping of debt and increased aid would be conditional on both economic as well as social reforms in the third world (force them to drop their proctetionist measures against each other).

    Continue intergation or possibly even membership of the EU would be conditional on the end of the CAP.

    Adoption of the Euro would be dependent on moving the EU central bank etc. to London.

    Disenfranchise all those over 75.
