    Was thinking about what policies id like to see introduced, and actually found most of them to be vaguely compatible with the three main parties (In that social liberalism's success has made its way into all of them). What are your thoughts, and are there any policies you would like to see that our party neutral

    (For Instance: Leaving/ Reforming the EU, greater environmental spending etc)

    Anyway, here my list.

    1: Campaign for a directly elected US style EU presidentdrawn from MEP groups with a certain number of seats (At least 160). Also bringin the Single Transferable Vote to replace FPTP in the UK electoral system.

    2: Privatise religion. As per: http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/...-10060100.html

    3: Incentive Based Eugenics- where people could voluntarily agree to be sterilized in return for a lump sum of money, that increases the more hereditary diseases you have. This will boost social mobility, decrease over population and save money over the long term.

    4: Decriminalize all drugs and legalize Cannabis and selected other drugs.

    5: Introduce a maximum wage linked to the wages of the lowest paid. Greater restrictions on bonuses.

    6: Lobby for Free movement with Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Japan.

    7: Scrap Trident and invest the money into defense research and better equipment for our armed forces.

    8: Loosen relationship with Turkey over their authoritarian actions, dealings with ISIS and their treatment of Kurds. Formally recognize Kurdistan.

    9: Put in Rent Controls as well as some form of Land ValueTax as well as rent controls.

    10: Try and make our cities more like this: http://www.newcitiesfoundation.org/c...tainable-city/

    I thought you said politically neutral? They're far from, unless of course your three main parties are new new new labour, the greens, and one of the many socialist parties.

    I think Labour, the Lib Dems and the left leaning part of the Conservative party could advocate some of these policies. You're probably right that its also compatible with the greens, though they're too soft for me.*

    *( I support having a military and think that there should be a cap on child benefit. Also I support nuclear power)

    Well, I'm not sure they can be easily bracketed into left or right wing.

    Any Tories supporting most of that list are in the wrong party, then again most are anyway.

    6: Lobby for Free movement with Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Japan.

    Good joke... any of those countries would want free movement.
    Although I do agree with you on Trident, eugenics and religion.

    1) Already proposed and defeated by the likes of Cameron and a couple of other EU leaders.

    2) Fine.

    3) You'd never steralise enough people to significantly effect the fertility rate (and nor should you, the UK is not overpopulated) but yeah, i'd support something like that.

    4) No. People are not rational enough when it comes to their health.

    5) You what!

    6) No need, we can simply open the border on our end. Good idea though, add the USA.

    7) No.

    8) Don't much care and no.

    9) No and yes.

    10) Fine.

    Not necessarily for all time though.

    4) No. People are not rational enough when it comes to their health.

    Agreed, but this isn't about their health or their choice. Drugs are readily available whether we like it or not and there is no real ethical distinction between drug use, unhealthy food and alcohol- particularly as there are some useful advantages such as pain relief for cannabis. This willo also bring inb revenue and will save police time and incarceration costs.

    6) No need, we can simply open the border on our end. Good idea though, add the USA.

    Yes we could do that good point. In previous discussions, you didnt want the US to enter because of the sheer quantity of poorer people that could come, why the change around? I support our NHS and whilst we could cope with my aforementioned countries I think the US would be a stretch too far. I think a two way stream would be preferable as it also gives opportunities to our population.

    There are things out there much worse than currently illegal drugs which are legal and widely accepted, like tobacco, alcohol and fast food. So that argument doesn't make much sense. Unless you're so authoritarian you want to ban those things as well.

    And what I choose to do with my health isn't really any business of the state, within reason.
