Seems like a decent and comprehensive set of reasonable proposals. Some very ambitious environmental aims, but I suppose a bit of ambition is what is needed to kick us into gear in this area.

I'd be interested to hear what people feel isn't a good idea in their proposals?

It will also be interesting to see how comprehensive the Conservative manifesto is in comparison to Labour and Lib Dem and what they really intend to do.

It's a shame that people automatically write off the Lib Dems, almost out of habit.

Very much aimed at the left. A good thing since we need them to eat into the Labour vote and enhance the Tory majority.

Can't say I'm surprised that their main thing is "we will try to keep the UK in the EU, in all but name if necessary"
