The Greens’ vision for the UK


This is from Tim Blair.  I love how they talk about nursery now being “free”, along with social care and school dinners.

Also of interest is that they regard it as a good thing that 90% of kids will now turn up to school without a packed lunch, because the taxpayer is providing free dinners.

Guido Fawkes has also highlighted some of their policies:

  • “a complete ban on cages for hens and rabbits”
  • “end the use of the whip in horse racing and conduct a full review of the sport”
  • “end the practice of grouse shooting”
  • “ensure UK taxpayers’ money is not used for bullfighting”
  • “ban the import of fur products”
  • “ensure that all schools, hospitals and other public buildings have solar panels by 2020″
  • “closure of all coal-fired power stations”
  • “make equality and diversity lessons mandatory in all schools”
  • “progressively introduce anonymised CVs
  • “strengthen Travellers’ rights”
  • “cancelling student debt”
  • “revive the role of trade unions”
  • “phase in a 35 hours week”
  • “work for the abolition of the City of London Corporation”
  • “introduce a wealth tax of 2% on the top 1%”
  • “raise the additional top rate of income tax to 60%”
  • “increase corporation tax from 20% to 30%”
  • “introduce new taxes on the use of water”
  • “ensure that no company owns more than 20% of a media market”
  • “state funding of political parties”
  • “pursue a policy of defensive defence, which threatens no one”
  • “a ban on the production and sale of fois gras”

Why stop at anonymised CVs? How about anonymised job interviews where you sit behind a screen so they can’t work out your age or race, and they use a Darth Vader type voice synthesizer so they can’t work out your gender also?
