The TSR Citizen’s Party

We seek to establish the TSR Citizen’s Party, a centre-right, socially liberal party, within the Model House of Commons.

Our ethos and niche
As stated above, the CP is a centre-right, socially liberal party which fills a gap between the TSR Libertarian Party and the TSR Liberal Democrats. The former has adopted social conservatism in recent months, while the latter occupies the centre and centre-left of the House, leaving room for a new centre-right party. We seek to fill this gap.

Our policies, which will be outlined below, focus on defending civil liberties, promoting equality of opportunity, and standing up for the rights and freedoms of everyone. This means allowing everyone to be who they are, and giving each person the best opportunity to be who they want to be.

Our policies
The founding members have discussed and agreed upon a number of initial policies, which are as follows:

Spoiler:
Show
Economics
  • Introduce a carbon tax to reduce environmental pollution
  • Impose a plastics tax (the details of which are still to be decided upon)
  • Create a carbon footprint tax
  • Simplify the tax code

Civil Liberties
  • A pro-choice stance on abortion, condemning the recent laws passed in certain American states restricting women’s autonomy and freedom of choice
  • Supporting the current legalisation of drugs in TSRland and supporting the setting up of drug consumption rooms and needle exchanges
  • End bank holidays and add those days to employee’s statutory holiday entitlement
  • Prisoner enfranchisement for those serving a year or less, or who have been imprisoned for non-violent crimes
  • Resist any and all attempts to repeal the Human Rights Act 1998 and defend the ECHR

Home and Justice
  • Fund legal aid
  • Consider bringing high court enforcement into the state sector
  • Raise age of criminal responsibility to 12
  • Implement no-fault divorces
  • Raise judicial retirement age to 75
  • Supporting a move from short-term prison sentences to community service
  • Abolish mandatory life sentences for murder
  • Removing pointless courts (e.g. Barmote court, High Court of Chivalry)


Health
  • Supporting the privatisation of the NHS
  • Reintroduce primary care trusts in areas where NHS facilities are underperforming
  • Introduce a public-private healthcare partnership where NHS hospitals can outsource patient care to private facilities if there are shortages
  • Continue to promote healthcare cooperation on the Irish border
  • Provide refuge centres for victims of domestic abuse
  • Ban the circumcision of both genders before the age of 18

Education
  • More funding for schools
  • Funding for one-to-ones for those with special educational needs
  • End free schools and convert existing ones into academies
  • End academy trusts
  • Promote Level 2 BTECs and facilitating links between academic and vocational qualifications/qualification providers
  • Promote alternative higher education routes, e.g. degree apprenticeships, HE courses at further education colleges
  • Ensure schools across the UK have specialised counselling services
  • Expand UK overseas study policy to promote options outside Europe

Defence and Foreign Policy
  • Maintain trident
  • Ensure funding to keep British military equipment up to date
  • Support for an eventual two-state solution in Israel & Palestine
  • Increase contribution to NATO budget

Environment and Infrastructure
  • Support HS2/3
  • Pedestrianise more city centers
  • Requirements for new developments to include green spaces
  • Encourage rewilding of endangered species previously native to UK

Business, Innovation and Skills
  • Reduce business rates
  • Push more technical qualifications and promote the non-traditional routes

Culture, Media and Sport
  • Abolish the license fee for students
  • Reform reporting restrictions legislation
  • Propose changes to the BBC Royal Charter

Looking forward to getting to work, we've got some good ideas and it should shake the game up a bit.

Faith does not give us an excuse to retreat into barbarism.

It doesn't increase hygiene and male circumcision is just as harmful as female circumcision (which is criminalised as FGM).

There is room for a party with Change UK's message. There is not room for a party with their shameful opportunism, after the members involved attempted to take over the Libertarian Party on flimsy reasoning. I do not welcome this proposal and the three tricksters behind it.

It is hoped that we can expand the options available in the House, which hopefully could boost activity.

You shamefully tried to join the Libertarian Party and then let them down because the attempt to get rid of Connor failed. You are a political opportunist who was not even able to serve as a competent MP or deputy leader.

We didn't try a coup d'etat against Connor.

And if your issue is the members that's not a reason to deny the house a much needed new voice.

The party is too similar to the Liberal democrats and Libertarians. It should not be created.
