Be Bold Manifesto!

Be Bold Manifesto! BritainIsntEating

This is my wish list for the Labour Party to put in their manifesto to restore this country of ours to a decent place to live and work in. It is a starting point and is not meant to be complete in any way. BE BOLD LABOUR:

  • Top of my list is to Nationalise the Energy Companies allowing the Government to ½ energy bills and eradicate fuel poverty, including cold related deaths;
  • But in equal first place is the repeal of the Bedroom Tax and a repayment of all the money taken from those forced to pay this unjust tax;
  • Remove the Welfare Cap and invest in the NHS once more;
  • Increase minimum Wage;
  • Give public employees an annual pay rise above the rate of inflation & scrap the Tory NHS/Care Bill;


  • Nationalise the Lottery so that all of the profits go to good causes and not have a huge amount creamed off by Camelot;
  • Cancel Trident and use the £97 billion on house building across the country;
  • Make it a condition of house building that every new home has to be energy self-sufficient, both this and building will create thousands of jobs;
  • Cancel HS2 and spend the money generating a new entrepreneurs fund to create a generation of new business owners that will create jobs;
  • Hunt out tax avoiders and reclaim £25 billion a year minimum. Anyone caught trying to evade or avoid tax or VAT should have all their assets ceased and sold off, the money going to create more jobs; bjifieacqaajz0g
  • Create a fair and equal system of taxation, removing universal benefits for all based on the more you earn the more you pay, and that includes companies. If you make money off the earnings of the British people, for example Amazon, then you pay corporation tax without excuses;
  • All business owners have to establish a Workers’ Hardship fund from 5% of the company’s profits. This fund (which will be a charity in structure) will be administered by the Trade Union representative in the company, can only be used for the welfare of the Workers and their families, and any award to a person or family must be voted for by the Workers of that company;
  • The Workers of a company will have the right in law to vote on to the Board of Directors a Worker to represent their views, this worker will have full voting rights on the Board;
  • All Board of Directors of all companies that are operating in the UK must have an equal number of women and men as Directors and Non-Executive Directors on the Board, as well as a Worker who has been voted onto the Board by the Workers;
  • All Bonuses that are proposed within a company have to be put to the Work Force and Shareholders for a secret ballot to approve (or not) the Bonusesbedroom
  • All companies by law must have all their Workers enrolled with a Trade Union;
  • Any company or organisation making a loss or having made people redundant in their current or previous financial year cannot pay people bonuses or dividends of any kind;
  • Ban forever the private organisations making profit from assessing people’s needs, it’s immoral and disgusting, train and employ our own assessors within the DWP;
  • Increase taxation on bonuses, including increased shares and pension funds that are in effect a bonus;
  • Re nationalise all parts of the NHS;


  • Establish a minimum wage set by the TUC;
  • Nationalise all aspects of care in the community, instead paying Councils to care for their constituents in their own homes where possible, as this immediately cut out a 33% to 50% on the cost of care, which is often profit care companies make;
  • Set a minimum wage for carers & set up a licensing scheme for them;
  • Invest in CQC, it’s an organisation that if funded correctly would revolutionise care for the better;
  • Nationalise PFI builds and stop payment to the profiteering companies exploiting the tax payer;


  • Nationalise housing stock for use by the council for families in need;
  • Nationalise the Post Office;
  • Nationalise the Railways;
  • For every pound the Councils spends on creating affordable housing for their constituents or social housing, they are to be given another pound to set up schemes to increase employment opportunities;
  • Removal of University fees for students whose families have a household income of less than £40,000pa;


  • Removal of prescription charges for families whose household income is less than £40,000pa;
  • Removal of Bishops & Hereditary Lords from the House of Lords and establish an all elected House instead based on ¼ Tory, ¼ Labour, ¼ Lib Dems, ¼ Other, and they are to be called the People’s Senate;


This is the basis of the manifesto I would have the Labour Party pledge to in order to take power back from this unjust Coalition that has ceased power for the sole purpose of raping our national assets for the benefit of corporations. n4s_nhs11
