Green Summary here

Everyone needs food and shelter, as laid down by UN charter of Human Rights

Overview

These policies outlined below aim to be fair to all giving incentive to the ambitious and support to the unfortunate and fulfilling its obligations under the United Nations dclaration of Human rights. If these ideas are adopted by a significant number of societies, countries, we believe that it would lead to a more harmonious world which can benefit from the great things this planet has to offer. This end needs people, especially politicians, to have an altruistic attitude, a belief in our children and faith in the goodness of man.

Main priorities

1.       Have a referendum to join the European Economic Area.

2.       To introduce a minimum income, (see A, E, G and H below)

3.       To tackle the housing crisis (see I, J, K and Q)

4.       To challenge inequality, (see A,

5.       Devolve power to the local area, (see D,

6.       Immigration (see N)

 

 

A.    Minimum income for all, then taxed from the first penny earned. more...

All adults should receive a Minimum income. All children over 3 will also receive percentage of the amount.

Due to increasing use of Artificial intelligence within companies and by governments the need to give everyone a basic income is essential without the bureaucracy of means testing.

People with lifetime disabilities will have an increased minimum income depending on their disability.

People with temporary disabilities, for a defined period of time, will temporally receive an increased minimum income.

This should only be available to the permanent residents of the society.

 

This measure will enhance article 4 of the  United Nations declaration of Human rights.

B.      Minimum wage more...
The minimum wage should be set at a level equal to the minimum income for a 30 hour week.

 

C.    Ownership “What should be in the State Sector” more...

There is an increasing use of artificial intelligence to make decisions as against people making them. These “people” should be under the control of society to the benefit of all not just the few who own the system. All monopolies should be under state control so all profits go to society not to individuals. The way the internet has developed has led to “International Monopolies” these should be under the control of the states where they operate and taxed as such. (All sales generated in a country should be subject to the sales tax of that country, including P&P)

D.     Autonomy more...
Power should be devolved to most locally elected appropriate authority. i.e. Any residential planning should be in the hands of most elected local authority. Any individual or legal identity can appeal to the next level of government authority whose judgement will be final. Any industrial planning to be brought forward by any level of government and put to open debate if proved to be controversial.

E.    Family/personal Tax Units. more...

Every family will be treated as a Tax unit and all transfers of money etc. between family members will not incur any taxation.

An age limit will be set so when the child reaches, say 25, or on marriage, thereby they will form a new Family Tax Unit, they will then leave their previous Family Tax Unit.

Exceptions being made for seriously disabled relatives. This gives the chance for parents to give their children “their inheritance” when they will need it most as opposed to at their point of death. There will also be a minimum sum that can be given in presents etc. after they leave the tax unit. All transactions between tax units will be taxed at the prevailing rate as decided by the highest authority. A family tax unit can be only one person and can be setup by anyone over 18 years of age.

 

F.    Social Care more...

All residential homes/hospitals will be assumed to be exempt from the Residential Tax see I and L. Care institutions will receive the basic income of the “patient” with any added enhancements, that are applicable see A above.

 

G.   Business Tax units more...

A company must register as a Business Tax unit which allows all transactions within its business to be tax free. Any payments to outside tax units including employees as who will also be registered, see above. They will be subject to the standard tax at the rate as decided by the authorities. A family tax unit can also perform as such if they don’t have employees outside their Tax Unit.

H.    Tax, Government’s income. more...

There will be a two main taxes, Tax on transactions set at a standard percentage(s) between tax units see above Tax on assets within Tax Units. This allows people and businesses to be on a common footing thereby reducing the opportunity for loopholes in the tax system that can be exploited. The exception to the rule set out by the highest authority, would be for goods deemed to be essential i.e. food given a lower rate and goods which are detrimental a higher rate. License system for all domestic animals as they do nothing for bio diversity and contribute to global warming.

 

I.        Local Authority income. more...
This should be a proportion of the total tax collected by the society based on the population of the area represented by the appropriate authority. Every adult should be allocated a certain amount which should be divided, as a percentage, between the all the authorities above them. These percentages should be decided the highest authority in the society. Collection of property/wealth tax.

J.     Property tax on residential property, X square foot FREE per adult, more than X, Y per square meter, Y increasing as the as the square footage changes. more...

This allows the poor who in need property to have reduced costs while also penalising the ones who have more resources and then they pay for the privilege. Overall this will encourage the optimum use of housing.

Second properties and foreign owners should pay the maximum per square meter.

K.    Housing more...

Local government housing must be available to those in need.

Every property should be given rent value say £50 a week. If the residents earn over an amount (say £12 000 a year) the rent should increase by a sum, say £5 a week. The extra money should be saved by the local government towards a deposit for the renter to put towards a deposit on a future house of their own thereby putting the public housing available to others. Thereby if a renter starts earning a good income they are encouraged to buy their own property. Then the property is available to another renter. Any money accrued by the recipient upon their death will be included in their will.

L.    Business Building more...
Every infrastructure requirement will be subject to planning by the appropriate government authority. Individual businesses should be granted by the local authority. Sometimes a project is in the interest of the greater society as a whole thereby the final decision after proper respected consultation will eventually be taken by the appropriate authority.

M.   Child benefit removed. more...

Most adults want children to carry on their line but society needs less for the greater good of the planet’s population.

N.   Immigration “Open the doors!” more...

Open the boarders to whoever wants to enter, they should be able to come and work BUT not entitled to the minimum income, see A above, until after they have contributed for a number of years. Genuine Asylum seekers should be offered the minimum income see above. This encourages integration of peoples throughout the world. To fully comply with the 1951 refugee convention.

We will set up immigration centres in our embassies to vet potential refugees into the UK. (automatically accepting people that fulfil the definition of refugee under the convention). When they reach the UK they will be given temporary residency which will allow them to work, but not be entitled to the minimum income see A.

If it is not possible to set up an immigration centre in the country of the potential refugee, centres will be set up at the nearest possible spot.

This is a small effort towards world peace and understanding.

 

O.   Education more...
The head of the school should be given free rein to run their school, to counter balance this parents and teachers should have access to a phone line and a complaints book anonymously, if requested to report any shortcomings to the local authority, if the complaints reach a critical level the local authority should investigate the matter and bring the two parties together and hopefully resolve the issues without referring the issue to the courts, see below. All should be cover a) learning a trade/hobby something of interest to the child i.e. sport, acting or craftwork etc.. b) a objective/questioning mind, c) spiritual and psychological support as well as literacy, mathematics etc. The assumption that teachers know best should be a given. The objective must be giving those being educated confidence and a questioning mind. All forms of propaganda must be avoided including religious practice of all sorts.

P.    University more...

University should be available to all based on ability alone to encourage excellence, no cost should be involved as potentially this will benefit the society and if they earn more this should be reflected in the tax system see above. Also it would keep the best talent in the society they were educated instead of going elsewhere therefore not paying the charges for their education. Many people are brilliant at mending machines or programming computers where they can learn the skills on the job.

Q.   Housing more...

Everyone needs a secure home. If housing needs to be built the decision should be made by the most locally elected authority within the principal but we need homes not houses. Updating/renovating houses must take priority over just building more houses. Every individual needs a home, and that should be his castle not the landlord’s income! See also K&L above

R.    Drugs more...

All drugs should be legalised and controlled. All drugs should be purchased through chemists where proof of identity must be taken and recorded by society. If people are found in possession of drugs not via a chemist should be taken to court. The definition of what is a drug needs to be defined as something the individual decides she/he feels is controlling him/her more than them being in control. This hopefully this will decrease the drug related crime.

S.     Law and Order more...

Detention in prison should never be used! If a person is found by a court of law guilty of a horrendous crime it should be assumed he/she has a mental problem and treatment should be ordered and the person put in a secure institution until they are deemed not to be a threat to society. If person commits theft or other minor offence they should be assessed and if required a secure “small home environment say 20 inmates” with a warden in the local area of the person convicted.  The person should have restricted access to the outside world. i.e. if it was decided by the that drugs or alcohol were instrumental in the crime they are not allowed to do these activities. If they do curfews should be enforced. If bad behaviour continues eventually outside access will not be allowed at all.

All fines should be based on the declared wealth (see Declared Wealth) of the guilty.

Education should be offered at local establishments and if they were employed at the time of conviction their continued employment should be encouraged.

T.    Complaints about Government bodies more...
An independent panel, made up of the judiciary, with a secretariat, if the complaints reach a critical level the body should be brought to court and the authority ordered to justify their actions. This will be via a manned phone line.

U.   Accountability more...

All professionals and businesses should be given autonomy, with a complaints system. Thereby the state only checks up on the business/professional when complaints reach a trigger level through a phone line, email or any other as above.

 

V.    Charities more...

They should have no special tax advantages. Elected representatives should be given a sum of money to distribute to good causes in their areas. These donations will be made public so their voters will know their priorities. The amount should vary depending on the level of the government authority they represent, and decided on by the highest level of Government

 

W.  Farming more...

Farmers/landowners should not be subsidised. This has over the years has over inflated the value of land and allowed many landowners vast amounts of money while not doing very much. Food produced could be "subsidised" this could be organised by the state deciding what is required/needed at least a couple of years in advance. Through a buffer stock system. (Say the government wanted a 100tons of wheat on a rotating two year cycle a) Farmers if they wish could grow any crops they want to and sell them on the open market.

 

X.     Communication more...

All communication networks should be provided by the state free of charge with a charter stating that nothing will be recorded by the state without court action. Freedom of speech should be encouraged, within platforms that broadcast the view of the individual to others that have an opposing view.

 

 

Y.    Environmental more...

Road pricing, all vehicles registered will have a credit/debit card allocated against the registered owner

 

Z.    Electoral system more...

Two elected chambers see Manifesto here.

 

AA.  Health more...

Many of the above policies.

BB.Transport more...

Many of the above policies.

 

 

 

Conclusion top

In a changing world, all societies should embrace each other and not go into little enclaves with possibilities of conflict. Where this has happened throughout the world in the past where kings and presidents told their peoples their enemy’s country is evil, while we are sure most of the permanent residents of the enemy’s country are much like you and me and not like the rulers.  Every child needs an equal opportunity to get to be the president or king of their man made defined physical area. Throughout history we have created bigger and bigger societies elating a fewer and fewer individuals to positions of power. This has the advantage of bringing peoples together but education is paramount. History tells us that cooperation is more beneficial then conflict, honesty is better than deception which leads to misunderstanding. Knowledge is power for the greedy who want to keep secrets so they can exploit the uneducated. The greatest judge is publicity so why hide it!

 

The object of this manifesto is to try and make sure the everyone is protected while protecting the environment.

A

Minimum income for all, then taxed from the first penny earned.

 

This is a very important measure to give every resident the freedom not to be a slave, allowing every resident a financially secure life. The amount should be set at a level which gives enough for the resident to keep body and soul together without any luxuries. (A position the rich have always had, the freedom to turn down a job without being left destitute)

 

This will allow “dirty jobs” to command a market forces defined income, a fair wage.

 

Due to increasing use of “artificial intelligence” within companies and by governments the need to give everyone a basic income is essential without the bureaucracy of a means testing.

 

This will automatically be paid to all residents over 3 years old. (the rational being that population growth is potentially a source of over use of the world’s resources)

 

This benefit will be paid in at the standard rate to everyone over 18. Those 3 to 11 will be paid at 30% while those between 12 and 17 will be paid 50%.

 

There would be certain residents which will have this increased

a)       Those with permanent disabilities as defined by a medical panel up to a maximum of twice the standard rate

b)       Those with temporary disabilities as defined by a medical panel up to a maximum of 50% more than the standard rate with limited time period when a new assessment will be required.

This will help people attain their true level of accomplishment a position which had only been available to the rich in the past.

There are many examples of rich people that are remembered because they had the luxury to indulge in their passions without the worry of “keeping the body and soul” together. i.e. Many politicians, Wordsworth, an English romantic poet for example.

Some accomplished their passion through fate like Wilfred Owen who was paid through government payments due to him while conscripted to fight in WW1.

To pay for this the money will be raised through the income tax system, where the point where someone earns the mean income will take home the same amount of money as they do in the existing system.

Minimum wage

The minimum wage should be set at a level equal to the minimum income for a 60hour week.

This gives incentives to the economic migrants to have an income while they build up credits towards permanent residency, after 3 years of contribution and their entitlement to a minimum income see A.

Ownership “What should be in the State Sector”

There is an increasing use of artificial intelligence to make decisions as against people making them. These “people” should be under the control of society to the benefit of all not just the few who own the system. All monopolies and utilities should be under state control so all profits go to society not to individuals, this should be a general rule. Many industries only contribute a maintenance role and produce nothing i.e. internet and green energy suppliers for example. These industries should be looked at on an individual basis. And local governments should be encouraged to sponsor/own local energy generation projects.

 

This should never be used to a detrimental effect of under mining innovation or experimentation. This can be accomplished by the state investing in engineers and scientists with the remit to find more efficient ways of doing things with no blue sky thinking. Holding brain storming situation including cabinet minister(s)

 

The hospitality sector and where there is a thriving competitive market should never be in the state sector.

H.

Tax, Government’s Income

a.       Income/transaction tax (between Business Tax Units and Residential Tax Unit) will be defined as a percentage, the base rate by the Nation State, this is added to by district down to the lowest government body. The government then the area, then the town. This will be levied on all transactions between Business Tax Units and Personal/Family Tax Units. i.e. the nation say 30%, 5% by County Council, 2% by District Council and .5% by Town/Village Council giving a total 35.5% on each transaction. A higher level for high earners in the same proportions. (say 10% higher thereby (33% to Nation, 5.5% to county, 2.2 to District Council and .55% to local village/town.) This will also replace VAT. The tax will be on the first penny earned.

b.       Capital Gains Tax will be set the same as the Nations Contribution as laid out above minus inflation.

c.       Wealth Taxes set on all assets under the control of any residential tax unit. 1. on the amount of land above a minimum say £10 a year per acre on all land above 1 acre. (collected by local authority) 2. Liquid assets say 1% of assets over £20 000 (except for funds saved towards first property) collected by local authority. 3. Excess accommodation tax see “J”

d.       Energy Tax, ring fenced for investment in public transport.

e.       Inheritance Tax at the point of death will be abolished but people remaining in the tax unit will inherit without tax. If no one is left in the Tax Unit the assets will be added to the recipients income see above.

f.        Animal tax, domestic animals need to taxed for their welfare and they do nothing for either global warming or biodiversity. It is understood pets give emotional to many so this tax should be set at an affordable level by people living on the basic income.

g.       Removal of tax advantages to charities, and giving elected representatives amount to give to local good causes in their areas which are publicised on the government websites.

h.       Property tax on residential property, X square foot FREE per adult, more than X, Y per square meter, Y increasing as the as the square footage changes. This allows the poor who in need property to have reduced costs while also penalising the ones who have more resources and then they pay for the privilege. Overall this will encourage the optimum use of housing. Second properties and foreign owners should pay the maximum per square meter. SEE J below

Local Authority income

This should be a proportion of the total tax collected by the society based on the population of the area represented by the appropriate authority. Every resident should be allocated a certain amount which should be divided, as a percentage, between the all the authorities above them. These percentages should be decided the highest authority in the society.

They will collect income from the Animal Tax, all animals add to global warming by breathing out carbon dioxide and all mammals produce a certain amount of methane. These rates should be set animal by animal by the regional government.

Property tax on residential property, X square foot FREE per adult, more than X, Y per square meter, Y increasing as the as the square footage changes.

There should be a lower square footage for young people over 3.

This allows the poor who in need property to have reduced costs while also penalising the ones who have more resources and then they pay for the privilege. Overall this will encourage the optimum use of housing. Second properties and foreign owned property to pay the maximum per square meter. These allowances will only be available to residents.

All second homes and foreign owned houses will be charged at the highest rate

Council Housing

Local government housing must be available all those in need. Controlled by the lowest level of government.

The central government should provide portable good quality homes, at the minimum size as required see below.
 
Every council owned property should be given rentable value say £50 a week. If the residents earn over an amount (say £12 000 a year) the rent should increase by a sum, say £5 a week. The extra money should be saved by the local government towards a deposit (interest free) for the renter to put towards a deposit on a future house of their own thereby putting the public housing available to others. Thereby if a renter starts earning a good income they are encouraged to buy their own property. Then the property is available to another renter. Any money accrued by the recipient upon their death will be included in their will. The interest on such monies will be accrued by the local authority. 

 

1. Introduce a replacement for council tax, based on the square footage of residential property/properties of an owner. See here...

2. Introduce a law making the use of residential property being used for short term lets of less than a year illegal. An exception for people who wish to share their main residence after registration with local authorities. Income from this source will be taxed as part of the household income.

3. Local authorities will be enabled build minimum sized accommodation see here. For different sized households. This property will then be let out at a minimal rent set at a max of 25% of the basic income.

 

If the household income rises above a certain amount. The rent will also rise. The rise in the rent will be saved by the authority on behalf of the tenant which is returned to the tenant towards a deposit of a home of their own.

 

Minimum housing units could be built in factories to a defined minimum size per person

 

Everyone needs a secure home. If housing needs to be built the decision should be made by the most locally elected authority within the principal but “we need homes not houses”. Updating/renovating houses must take priority over just building more houses. Every individual needs a home, and that should be his castle not the landlord’s income!

If it is not possible to set up an immigration centre in the country of the potential refugee, centres will be set up at the nearest possible spot.

This is a small effort towards world peace and understanding.

Education top Add Comment

The head of the school should be given free rein to run their school, to counter balance this parents and teachers should have access to a phone line and a complaints book anonymously, if requested to report any shortcomings to the local authority, if the complaints reach a critical level the local authority should investigate the matter and bring the two parties together and hopefully resolve the issues without referring the issue to the courts, see below. All should be cover a) learning a trade/hobby something of interest to the child i.e. sport, acting or craftwork etc. b) an objective/questioning mind, c) spiritual and psychological support as well as literacy, mathematics etc. The assumption that teachers know best should be a given. The objective must be giving those being educated confidence and a questioning mind. All forms of propaganda must be avoided including religious practice of all sorts.

What is Education?

In today’s world many things have changed the education has not evolved to the same extent. The accumulation of knowledge is not as important as it was as “The Facts” are often just a click away.

The concentration should be on the following-

A.     The skills and/or support required to reach their full potential from the student’s point of view.

B.      The understanding of rhetoric and how it can be used to manipulate opinion.

C.      The skill to analyse situations separating opinion from fact.

D.     Life skills including how the government works, the law and personal finances.

E.      The appreciation of the arts.

F.      To encourage a questioning mind.

G.     An understanding that all human beings are equal and deserve understanding and love.

H.    An understanding of the Manifesto of the society in which they live and other societies in the world.

I.        An understanding of the judicial processes of the society.

J.        The importance of the quest to seek the truth.

 

 

The role of the State

To provide lifelong education based on the opinions outlined above.

Nursery school phase, (where social skills and cooperation are the main basis, learning together where asking questions etc is encouraged

The Primary phase Reading, and writing simple maths,

The Junior phase access knowledge, how to assess and evaluate information

The lower senior phase,

The higher senior phase, speciality phase in a limited number of subject

The university/for the pursuit of knowledge.

Special colleges to teach specific skills, from plumbing to medicine.

The responsibility of parents and the rest.

Farmers if they wish could grow any crops they wish to and sell them on the open market.

This works by a body deciding on a guaranteed price for certain crops, and if appropriate the sell price. This should include plants like trees and habitat enhancements as well as food crop.

All subsidies will be paid on production of the goods. In the case of crops that take more than a year an interest free loan will be made. There will also be grants awarded for habitat improvement where no crops are
