    Since the Tories now have a majority what do the TSR Tories think they should get rid of?

    Also do you think the Tories should bring back the nasty party and go full on. Completely transform the UK without any opposition?

    Bring back slavery?
    Cut welfare by 75%.
    Privatize the NHS.
    Bring in a new Poll Tax.
    Double tuition fees?

    I'm not a Tory but these would be a start:

    EU membership (£55m/day)

    State funded "charities" and New Labour's politicised Quangos stuffed with left-wing placeholders

    The Barnett formula, give Scotland some responsibility and consequences for their reckless spending

    the BBC (now there's a poll tax for you)

    Foreign "Aid" (funny how people complaining about "food banks" never comment on the £12bn a year of UK taxpayer money which is shovelled into the pockets of internationalist do-gooders)

    All public sector staff whose job title includes the words "equality" or "diversity"

    Wrote out what economic reforms I think the Tories should have done on another thread:
    Economic Reform

    I think organisations such as the NHS and BBC, or services such as education, should be privatised. I support privatisations in general, but I think a safety net is important.

    For example...
    In healthcare, I would model our new system on the one found in Germany - based on health insurance and fee limits. But I still think there should be a safety net, so I would bankroll a socialised university hospital system from taxes.

    For media, I would privatise both BBC and 4 and impose PSB requirements on the top 5 most visited video sites. I would then set up a dutch style media fund, focusing on: localism, europeanism, news, arts, knowledge, and minorities.
    I also support things like compulsory unemployment insurance, or Singapore's CPF Fund style compulsory pensions savings.

    Defence budget and overseas aid should be cut, I support the balancing of books. I also support measures that might be controversial in the lower classes, such as automation or off-shoring.

    However, I find regional monopolies utterly stupid. In railways for example, either allow competitors to run trains freely (like planes, subsidising loss making routes) or nationalise the whole thing!
    So I think the vast majority of people, say 70%, should be using privatised services.

    In terms of actually cutting: BBC/4, Defense, Foreign Aid, Compulsory Insurances, maybe encouraging private education enrollment. Pensions reformed into Singapore's CPF Fund, maybe centralising welfare into a 'development bank' which acts as a SWF too.

    I would privatise water if water companies were willing to maintain individual pipes.

    Two more things they should, but will not, do:

    Repeal Ed Miliband's "Climate Change Act", which has been estimated to cost £800 billion - £1.3 trillion between now and 2050.

    Scrap HS2.

    The party of lower debt and lower taxes wants to give a tax break to the current rich who benefited from free tuition, at the cost of indebting future generations with even more debt?

    Raising tuition fee's does little to decrease numbers. It's just so ironic the tories claim to be the party of lower debt and lower taxes. What they really mean is for the rich, while the middle class suffer, and future generation are indebted with even more debt.

    The billionares's who also own the media must be laughing.

    if you put the price of something up it reduces the supply. If 9k was not enough then maybe 27k is required?

    We were warned about this by Gordon Brown.
