- Seize unnecessary royal property (furniture etc) and sell it. Spend it on NHS and education

- Cut PM pay to £95,000

- Encourage economic investment by introducing low taxes for British businesses that want to compete with international businesses

- Cut arms supply to Saudi Arabia - Ban the new construction of private property

- Cut tax that goes towards monarchy. Currently it is 69p - cut it to 30p pp, remaining 39p can be spent on mental health care

- Hold a referendum on Britain becoming a Republic - Establish an English Parliament

- Conduct a national enquiry into rape gangs in Britain

We need a left wing brexiteer party in the uk right now. Something i'd consider voting for. It should be labour, but it looks like corbyns going for a second referendum, despite being a lifelong eurosceptic.

Sort of, no party that declares itself communist will win, and i'm against some ideas of communism. I believe there should be privatised things like some businesses but at the end of the day, businesses are for customers, not for businesspeople. Essential services like railway cannot be run as a business.

Why make people who fail and are above 16 enlist into the army?
I don't think everyone wants to die for their country.

I think the problem with our country is with the crony capitalism we have people do not feel they have a purpose. They cannot get a job; they have no morale. I'm not suggesting they be deployed, in fact, an army under my party would be more of a Defense Force rather than an army that routinely goes to war. The army would deploy in small numbers to some conflicts. More about discipline and stability really. In the army they can also gain some qualifications so when they leave they are ready for the outside world

Putting the minimum wage at £12 would kill the economy. Firms wouldn’t be able to afford to hire labour, small businesses would be no more, the U.K. economy would be ruled by monopolies, exports would plummet due to the lack of a comparative advantage (which would increase our already high Balance of Payments deficit, economic growth would reduce due to lack of exports, the high amount of unemployed would drain the taxes of those still in work, disposable incomes would fall, spending would plummet and we would enter a deep recession that would be almost imposssibe to get out of without removing the £12 minimum wage. But apart from ruining the economy... Great!

Mhm I understand, but about the arms deal, why cut it off? Saudi spends a crap ton of weapons a year and that makes UK a bit of money, cut it off means you'd lose a crazy amount of money.

Ethical reasons, obviously by then the war in yemen might be over. I would find other countries to sell weapons to.

But you'd forge ties with Russia, a country that's being ethically wrong in every single way and is being attacked verbally from every side. Remember, Theresa May blamed Russia for the attack in England.

It would be more of an aim than an outright phase, implemetning it in stages. Guess it would be £10 first.

£10 would be too much, it is at £7.25 at the moment, the max you could set it without messing up everything if £8 or just limiting the amount of damage done.

Oh really? I thought it was about £9.50, OOPS. Guess I was reading the wrong thing. Definitely £8 then, sorry, should have checked another source

The U.K. government sets the minimum wage after looking at many different life costs. If they could bump it up to 10 pounds without any consequences then why hasn’t it been done already.
Every government would aim for higher minimum wages but it is better to allow the free market to find the price of labour too much intervention causes other problems down the line

I know, it's just I worked out a lot of money could be saved because currently there are around 92,000 prisoners in UK. Account for 100K to account for more people I would imprison...

The camps would be on either requestioned land or old military bases that haven't already been snapped up for housing. Fit 2K prisoners on each "camp". You would need just 50 sites across the country. Getting them to do work is good because it would be tough sleeping outside and also the work contributes to the economy, ie, they say many EU migrants did work on farms, now many have left, we can have prisoners do it for free.

Very few good ideas, the work camp being the only one I agree with, most of it is just communist nonsense and I would rather die than try and destroy the monarchy or lose our rightful land in Ireland
