    Conservative:
    Would you restore the monarchy through a bill, or hold a referendum?
    My position as (hopefully) a Conservative MP is to do it by the Bill, therefore restoring what the people voted for.

    Residents Income provides people with more money than they need per head, it's a case of the people managing their own finances. If people can't afford things despite receiving basic income then they do not need subsidised by the government, that's like trying to treat a weed addict with space cakes.

    Only the Greens and Labour appear to even be attempting to resolve the unfolding constitutional crisis across the UK, and Labour's proposals - much like in RL, actually - remain vague. Though I'm impressed by some of Labour's other commitments; if the Greens weren't an option I'd probably endorse Labour based on that manifesto.

    UKIP:
    Do you intend to hold a EU referendum next term, and at what cost would this be with regards to the potential monarchy referendum?
    Would you implement Australian points system immigration policy like your RL counterpart?
    We would need to discuss within the party about a referendum, but one was held previously, so we would need to consider

    We did out out a bill this term with the Australian points system!

    A flawed philosophy, by employing goodies for everyone you automatically take away their liberty.

    those "goodies" are surely part of the "freedom" you claim we are all entitled to...

    It provides people with the financial means to house themselves, cloth themselves and eat. These are the only basic human rights that the government should concern itself in ensuring people have, the individual should work to earn more. If someone wants to pursue a path other than work great, RI provides them with the financial means to do that. That's more freedom than anything currently available to the poorest in society in the real world.

    No, because those goodies automatically come at someone elses expense. I agree with welfare, in the form of basic income (the real life name for it, I'm not sure why everyone here is using a convoluted term for it) - anything above that is luxury and not the state's domain to provide.

    basic rights, so you don't believe in freedom for all then? just basic freedom for most & extra freedom for the privileged few who do the "work" that you deem worthy of it? why are you not also trying to promote freedom elsewhere in the world as well? or does it only matter to have "freedom" in the UK?

    I believe the state has a duty to provide freedom to live to everybody, beyond that people should have the freedom to make of themselves what they want - free from excessive government interference.

    What evidence do you have that I, or my party, are not trying to promote freedom elsewhere?
