    If we turn the UK into a communist country and give everyone a job then there will be no problem with job losses. Everyone should contribute to the UK economically and help improve society.

    I recommend the introduction of a living wage as mandatory for all people of the UK and in return they serve the United Kingdom by doing the following jobs:
    • Pick fruits in the fields
    • Clean gas stations
    • Pick gum off the streets
    • Remove graffiti from streets
    • Parking lot attendants
    • Bartenders
    • Rubbish collector
    • Lumberjack
    • Cow milker
    Alternatively these people should be in police force or armed forces to protect ourselves from ever expanding German superstate.

    The UK needs you now more than ever!

    How do we pay them to do all these jobs?

    I'm in favour of people in prison being forced to do some of these things. The owners of the fruit fields pay the govt for the labour and the prisoners do it for free.

    They will obtain a living wage to do these jobs. This can be funded by a small increase in taxes on the super wealthy. We can then ensure everyone is in work and not staying at home being a drain on society. I do not want any more Tracey's from Preston with the Facebook status 'single mum and proud'. She should be proud of her ability to clean garages to make the country look more beautiful.

    Yes, to simplify that's essentially what the "Lexit" platform is. It's true that if you wanted a determinedly left-wing government you have to leave the EU. For starters the EU forces privatisation of public services. But good luck getting a left-wing government in, the British have only ever voted for anything remotely left-wing after massive wars.

    Who needs robots when you can breed stupid humans together to make a low IQ human labour force? A Communist UK should only allow the intelligent to breed with the intelligent and the stupid to breed with the stupid so that we have a two class system of masters and humanoid drones of whom serve them.

    Robots can do the jobs, Humans can do the more advanced stuff.

    A much more stable form of communism.

    Ignoring the fact that what has been proposed is socialism, not communism i would say that i am heavily against such beliefs. For one thing the idea that the state will simply create non-jobs is awful and part of a government knows best attitude (why is government creating litter jobs but not admin ect..),

    I will say however that for those unemployed longer than 12 months and aged under 30 i am somewhat sympathetic to the notion that there is no excuse for unemployment and as such would conscript them to basic training in the armed forces.

    As long as tax avoiders, who are just as big spongers, do so too

    "The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property."

    -Karl Marx-

    Sorry, Marx. Some private property shouldn't be abolished. I don't wanna share my underpants or toothbrush. You don't worry about personal hygiene,Marx?
