We have a Q&A for all the parties, but the Independent MHOC MPs do not have one, well now they do. Here is the thread to ask the Independents.

We currently have 3 independents Aph barnetlad and CatusStarbright


Their manifestos are below.

Barnetlad



Vote for Barnetlad- to keep a Green Voice in the House


Our planet faces a climate emergency- we must act to avoid catastrophe and to bring social justice.



Environmental policies
- Increase in renewable energy to 100%, to reduce emissions and for energy security.
- Remain in the EU to fight climate change by cross-country co-operation.
- No single use plastics for other than medical purposes by 2025.
- Public ownership of public transport, locally managed.
- An end to garden paving over- to keep plants and flowers, and natural drainage.
- No fracking, no biofuels.

Social justice
- An end to social cleansing via housing redevelopment schemes.
- Funding for women’s refuges.
- A commission to examine digital sanctions as an option for justice.
- Benefits paid within a fortnight of the first claim.
- Adult adoption by step or foster parents, should the step-child or foster child wish.

Economy
- Reform business taxes to recognise the digital economy and reduce tax avoidance.
- Ditch the £50 note, the choice of fraudsters.
- Stamp duty paid by the seller not the buyer.

Health
- No more closures of walk-in centres.
- Halving of road deaths and injuries by 2030.
- Cycle training for all year 6 pupils who wish for it.

And
- No Trident renewal/replacement.
- Allow a second Scottish independence referendum if the Scottish Parliament wants one.
- Major sporting events on free to air tv.
- Legal recognition of the responsibilities to domestic pets in divorce cases and wills.
- A dog registration scheme- love dogs not use them to threaten others.
- Extend the reporting of road crashed where any animal is hit, not just some.



CatusStarbright

To add some extra information. Barnetlad is the current culture secretary, although this thread is to ask him questions, Government questions must be kept to the Ask the Government Thread.

Catus is the current Deputy Speaker.


This post is maintained by the speaker, currently Andrew97.

In 1982 a crack political team was pushed of their respective parties for crimes they did not commit. Today, still wanted by the political parties they survive as voices of the people.

If you have a problem, if no one else can help and if you can find them (from beneath their stacks of legislation), maybe you can hire an independent (as your MP).

Do-do-d-duuuun.....

How much independence do independents feel like they have in government? This applies to also the the independent Deputy Speaker who was in government last term. Aph as far as I remember was never an independent within a government, but if I misremember, you are welcome to answer this too.

There is a programme that I have agreed to as part of joining the government, and have had an input too. There are things that are not party political such as views on the death penalty or euthanasia, separate from government.

How easy was it to become an independent and would you recommend new users to MHoC start as independents, or should join a party first to try before going indie?
