A blueprint for Britain
« on: August 14, 2017, 07:10:33 PM »
A Blueprint for Britain. Common sense solutions to our problems.

THE CENTRE PARTY

Great Britain is in a mess and needs to be cleaned up.                                                                             
It is almost impossible to know where to start first.  In any case, the mess is so great that it will take years to rectify since it has taken years to get into this terrible state.  Drastic and imaginative actions are needed as a matter of urgency.
We believe politicians should have the best interests of the country and the population as a whole at the heart of all their actions and decisions.  Unfortunately, all our politicians are career politicians who, mainly, have never spent time in the real world.  It is doubtful if even one has set up and run their own business successfully, using their own money, and yet they make laws that affect all businesses, mainly adversely.  As a result their actions are mainly aimed to help themselves, their party and their cronies rather than the country as a whole.
This country needs to revert back to being a pleasant, relatively safe and successful place in which to live.  We need to be better educated, responsible for our own actions and industrious.  We need to look after those who cannot do so for themselves but not those who deliberately will not.  We need to ensure people feel safe in their homes and neighbourhoods.
To do this we need to drastically improve many of the areas that are failing us today, such as education, law and order, the NHS, Defence, the economy, immigration, etc., etc.  Not necessarily in that order.  Since they ALL need drastic revision much of this will have to take place almost simultaneously.
2
Immigration.
This country has welcomed people from many lands, backgrounds and religions over centuries.  Until recently, these immigrants had integrated well into our society with minimal trouble.  They have learned our language and, although they had their own religions and culture, there has never been any real clash.  We have all lived amicably together and the immigrants have contributed to our society.
This changed with previous Governments dash for votes by encouraging unlimited immigration knowing that these newcomers will support them because of the terms under which they have arrived.
If a British person emigrated and then returned to this country for any reason, they have to provide for themselves in all aspects, housing,   health, pension, etc., until they had paid at least 12 months National Insurance.  This despite the fact that they had been paying taxes, etc. here before they moved abroad.
Compare that with the present situation where immigrants, many of whom illegally claim asylum, come here and are showered with gifts of all kinds, free housing, free health, free education, money to spend, even furniture, a vehicle, etc., etc. all having contributed nothing.
We cannot blame them for rushing to our shores to get in, either legally or illegally.  If there was another country offering us the same benefits we are likely to consider moving there at least.  The current position is biased against ethnic British people and so racist and will have to be changed.
However, the numbers coming here have resulted in our becoming the most overcrowded western country and it is never ending.  As a consequence, the indigenous population are suffering from overcrowded schools and hospitals, dangerous roads where many drivers are unlicensed or uninsured, where houses are unavailable because they have been taken by the immigrants and where crime has increased out of all proportion to the numbers.
The incentives for immigrants coming to this country should be removed so that they are treated at least partly as returning expats are.  They should have no benefits until they have contributed in taxes for at least five years.  This will dramatically reduce the dash to this country by people of all nationalities.
3
In the case of immigrants already here, if they are not contributing towards their costs here by way of taxes, they will be given one year in which to find a job so that they are no longer dependent on the State.  If they are unable to find employment within that period, especially if this is because they are unable to speak English sufficiently to hold down a job, they will be deported back to either their homeland or at least their port of embarkation when coming here.
Up to 25,000 GENUINE asylum seekers will be allowed in annually and given the support they need. However, to qualify they must conform to UN regulations, which states that they have to ask for asylum at the first safe country they enter after leaving their own.  There, our Embassy/Consulate staff will check their qualification for asylum to ensure they are genuinely in danger in their own country before issuing a Visa.
Any immigrant who breaks the law WILL be deported.  At present, most are being allowed to remain, even killers and rapists, on the basis of spurious Human Rights, usually that they are entitled to a family life.  That is accepted but will not prevent their deportation because they will be allowed to take their families with them.  We will pay for their deportation as well.
All visitors to Britain, either temporary or permanent, MUST have a Visa from our Consulates in their own country or the first country they enter if they are seeking asylum.  That Visa will only be issued if the person has valid health insurance and a certificate that they are not suffering any health problems or are pregnant at the time of travel. 
The Immigration authorities will be overhauled and strengthened, if necessary by using troops, so that every vehicle, plane or boat is checked for illegal immigrants.  In the case of vehicles and boats, the presence of illegal immigrants will mean the immediate return of that vehicle or boat to its original embarkation point.  Any illegal immigrants found in the country will be immediately deported back either to their country of birth or embarkation.
All immigrants will be fingerprinted when arriving or when being deported so that they can be identified later, if required.  All emigrants who have lived here for several years and paid at least 3 years taxes will be offered a resettlement payment to help get themselves re-established in their next country.

Law and Order.
All criminals are volunteers and so must accept any punishment attached to the crime committed.  Stricter rules and punishments will eventually result in smaller prison populations, saving considerably on the costs involved.
We have a huge number of laws, many of which are seldom if ever enforced.  Thus they are of little value so they will be either repealed or enforced in the future.  This particularly applies to under age sex, where nearly 6000 under age pregnancies occur each year but very rarely result in any arrests for rape.  Enforcing this law would result in fewer underage pregnancies.
When committing a crime the perpetrator gives up all but very basic rights, that is, to safe accommodation, basic food, basic medical care and some contact with their families.
All sentences will be served in full.  All sentences must be a disincentive to repeat the crime. For example, for fraud the sentence may be one year for every £10,000 involved.  It therefore would not pay to try to defraud somebody since they could gain far more by honest labour or actions.
Good behaviour will be rewarded with basic improvements, such as condiments for their food, access to a radio, educational instruction, trade instruction, etc.  When they act outside the rules, any or all of these may be removed from them.  They will not be allowed to have TV, computers or mobile phones while in prison.  This will be strictly enforced.
This is in line with the treatment of our Armed Forces who commit a crime and are sent to a “Glass House”
Direct contact with family will not be allowed, all visiting will be controlled using glass panels.  This will prevent unauthorised objects being passed to the prisoner.
All prisoners will have to carry out some work, either indoors for dangerous criminals or outdoors for those deemed not to be dangerous, in order to compensate their victims.
5
Where physical harm has been carried out the sentence will be the length of time it takes for the victim to recover plus several years, depending on the level of seriousness of the injuries.
To regain control over young offenders, for a first offence they may be cautioned, depending on the severity of the crime, but thereafter, any further crimes will attract a sentence at a “Boot Camp”.
These will be set up in various areas on State owned land, such as disused airfields, army camps, etc.. Initially these will be set up using adapted Portacabin type units housing up to 4 offenders.  Each offender will be able to earn rewards for good behaviour but if any member does mis-behave the basic rewards given out to each member may be removed for the whole cabin.  In this way the criminals will learn about collective responsibility.
The initial batches of offenders will be required to help in the building of their own Boot Camp, which will help instruct them in skills useful for the building industry.
Where prisoners cause damage to their cells or the prison they will have to repair it themselves and live in it until it is all repaired.
Rape laws will be enforced so that when an underage girl becomes pregnant the father WILL be charged with rape and sentenced accordingly.  This should significantly reduce underage pregnancies.
The Death Penalty.
The deliberate taking of someone’s life is abhorrent to most people.  The question of the death penalty is a very vexed one in which opinions are very divided.
Since the death penalty was removed in the 1960s, the number of murders each year has steadily increased.  Many murders are classed as Manslaughter and so the true figure is very distorted.
Where the Death Penalty has been returned, the number of murders has usually fallen dramatically, proving the deterrent effect it has.  When it was muted here before, prisoners awaiting trial for murder became extremely agitated, fearing they might be executed.
6
The use of the Death Penalty should be the subject of a National Referendum.
However, this should be looked at dispassionately.  As stated above, nobody likes the idea of deliberately taking someone else’s life.
Statistics show that when the death penalty is removed, the number of murders increases and where it has been returned murders are reduced.
It is usually claimed that an innocent person may be executed and so this sentence should not be used. Whilst that is possible, with modern science it is usually quite clear that the evidence shows who the murderer is.
When hanging was allowed the number of murders in this country was around 150/160 per year, say three a week.  Since its abolition this has risen to around 3 per day.  If we assume the Death Penalty is returned and we follow the trends of other nations who have taken similar action, the number of murders could be reduced by, say, 500.  Of the murderers charged and found guilty, how many might be innocent, 100%, 50%, 25%, 10%, 1%?  How many of the victims were innocent?  So we must decide where our duty lies, with the large number of innocent victims or the potentially very small number of innocent defendants.
In the first 15 years of this century around 1200 people have been officially murdered each year. If we went back to the figures when hanging was allowed it means that somewhere around 8000 people, innocent people, would have been saved had the death penalty still been law.
Where several people may be involved in a murder, it will not be necessary to prove who performed the actual deed.  All will be deemed equally guilty unless they can prove they tried to prevent the killing.  The old system of joint responsibility or being an accessory before, during or after the act will apply.  This applies to any crime, particularly those involving physical injuries or rape.
7
The Economy
The economy is in a mess and despite the Governments efforts through so called Quantitive Easing (printing money) we have seen no real benefit.  Banks are still reluctant to lend to businesses in order to help create employment.  No figures have been produced to show where the £375 BILLION or so money pumped into the Banks over the past 2 years or so has actually gone and the only effect the public has seen is the continuance of the obscene bonuses being paid to the bankers themselves.
Rather than give money directly to the Banks and hope that they will pass this on by responsible lending it would be better to use it, for example, to reduce or eliminate VAT.  In that way people will buy more, creating more jobs, increasing company profits and increasing general taxation receipts while at the same time reducing some of the costs of benefits.
Since we have seen no evidence for improvement to the economy due to the Quantitive Easing that has already been carried out, £375 BILLION, we must assume that the Banks have used that money for their own benefits.  Banks will therefore be required to pay back, say, £1BILLION per month each which can then be used to cover the VAT “lost”.
The Government could also set up a National Development Bank where businesses could obtain funds for developing businesses at lower rates than from commercial banks. All applicants should be limited companies and the NDB would hold, say, 25% of the shares. At the end of, say, five years the shares could be sold back to the company so that the money would now be available for new applicants. It is expected that the shares would be worth more than their original value and so the NDP would benefit also from this extra value.
One reason why small businesses fail is the pernicious way larger businesses, including Government Departments, take far too long to pay their bills.  It is suggested that it becomes illegal for ANY body that is invoiced for products or services to pay later than the end of the month following the receipt of that invoice.  Failure to do so will result in the automatic penalty of, say, 5% surcharge being added for each month or part month where the invoice is not paid.
8
Wealth Re-distribution.
Socialists and the trade unionists have long sought to obtain a greater part of the wealth that they are helping to create. In the 1970s and 80s wage demands of between 20% and 50% were quite common. However, no mention was ever made of increasing productivity to help cover these extra costs. As a result, the rate of inflation grew to 16%+ negating a large part of whatever gains had been made.
Corporation tax on company profits is currently 19%. We propose that all companies will share their gross profit with their employees so that the latter will have at least 25% of those profits allocated to them. As an incentive, the companies corporation tax would be reduced to 10% of the residue profits.
Failure to implement the profit sharing would mean the Corporation Tax would still be levied at at least 19%.
This will mean that both sides will benefit. The workers will get a bonus based on the profitability of the company, so encouraging them to increase productivity, and at the same time the company will pay less tax on the reduced amount of company profits.
Income tax will, of course, be paid on the bonuses involved, so improving the total paid to the Government.
9
Taxation.
Our system of taxation is far too complicated and unfair.  The level at which tax starts to be deducted is too low and gives no incentive to unemployed people to try to find a job.
Taxation should start at a higher level, suggested £15000.  Then ALL income should be taxed at one fixed level of, say, 25% to include the present NI contributions.  This will simplify the system and reduce costs.  It will also make it less attractive for high earners to try to hide their earnings in so called tax havens.
All monies earned in this country will be subject to UK taxation and the transferring of monies to other countries in order to offset taxation will not affect this.
Where other countries, mainly in Eastern Europe, have embarked on a single lower tax rate the actual revenue raised has increased and the economy has benefited.
One pernicious tax is Inheritance Tax, where beneficiaries have to pay 40% on the value of an estate even though tax will have already been charged in creating that estate.  This, again, has resulted in people using tax havens to move money to avoid this tax, so the benefits are actually very limited.  Its removal would result in a simpler system which, in turn, should result in tax savings by reduced Civil Service costs.
Council tax and business rates.
These are also unfair taxes and unnecessarily difficult to administer. Council taxes are based on a spurious valuation of premises and only one person living in that building is actually liable for the tax to be paid despite the fact that all will be using the resources that the council will be providing.
Business rates are based on the size of the premises used and this can be detrimental to businesses starting up.
A much fairer system would be a local sales tax applied to all sales made. This would encourage local councils to do all they can to help businesses generate sales. For example, instead of charging for 10
using car parks from the time a vehicle is parked, the first two hours could be free of charge and only those cars that are there for longer would have to pay for further parking. In the majority of cases people will be parking their vehicles for less than two hours, especially if they knew it was free. This would help to create a greater turnover of customers and therefore sales in the local areas.
This would be particularly useful for small businesses in the neighbourhood where there is at least one supermarket in the area having a large free car park which encourages customers.
We would reduce VAT as soon and as far as possible, partly by reclaiming the £375 BILLION we  gave to the Banks with Quantitive Easing.  This will encourage spending so creating more jobs which in turn will bring in more taxes.
11
The NHS
The NHS does not require extra funding, it needs a radical reform.
This is the National HEALTH Service, NOT the International MEDICAL or Immortality Service.  Far too many medical treatments are being given which should not be covered by the NHS.  For example, it seems that around £2 billion a year is spent treating drink related problems.  These treatments should be paid for by those who need it.  The same for such things as breast implants, removing tattoos, even sports related accidents, etc.  People should have taken out insurance to cover the costs for any medical treatment that may be required as a result of injuries sustained carrying out their sport.
The NHS is, like all other Civil Service Departments, overloaded with Management.  Again, heads of the Hospitals will need to be re-educated in better management so that more money is available where it is needed, for the treatment of patients.
In one large Staffordshire Hospital it is reported that there are 1100 staff, including porters, dealing directly with the patients while there are no less than 3000 admin staff. This is clearly quite ridiculous and must be changed as quickly as possible.
The whole structure of the NHS needs overhauling and refining.  It should revert back to being the National HEALTH Service by allowing the establishment of private hospitals to treat medical problems, including drunks as above, and perhaps such things as sport injuries, cosmetic surgery, etc.  This would dramatically reduce the load placed on the NHS so that wards could be opened and offices closed.
The NHS should enlarge or open more medical training schools for doctors and nurses to cater for the increasing population each year. They get enough information to know what’s the numbers are going to be necessary from the birth rate and the official immigration rates. The money is for these will come from the savings made by improved efficiency and the reduction in the clerical staff.
Doctors and nurses being trained at these schools should sign an agreement that they will remain with the NHS for at least five years after completion of their course rather than emigrating to other countries, so depriving us of their services. 12
Pensioners
The UKs records on its treatment of pensioners is appalling.  Despite being one of the richest countries in the EU it has by far the lowest pension as a percentage of average income. We would increase, as soon as possible, the main pension and as our policies take effect, resulting in significant savings, we would ensure that our pensions match more closely those of our less wealthy neighbours.
The disparity between the private sector and public sector in the way of pension provision must be addressed.  Although public sector Unions will scream if any attempt is made to reduce the level of their pensions relative to the private section, the private sector unions should be screaming about the level of contribution they are having to make to cover this.  Perhaps they should come to a public debate in which the general taxpayer is involved, to reach an agreement on what they consider acceptable for one side to receive and the other to contribute.
The State pension should be exempt from taxation so that people who have saved for their retirement are not penalised by having the State pension and their own pension added together for tax purposes.
The amount of state pension could be determined by the contributions made from the income earned by each individual. Therefore, those who spend all or most of their time on benefits will have a greatly reduced pension. If people want a State Pension, get a job.
13
Overseas Aid.
Whilst it is right that we give aid to overseas countries where required, this should not be in the form of actual money, which is diverted into officials pockets, but practical help.
If roads are needed we will help build them and train the people to continue afterwards.  Where schools and teachers are required we will help build them and train teachers.  The same with hospitals, etc.
In this way British companies can benefit from supplying trainers and materials and the level of aid is more easily controlled.
14
Education
Like the rest of our society, education is in a mess.  Left wing elements have infiltrated schools and tried to make all students the same.  This is patently impossible because we are all different and have different abilities.  All that has happened is that standards have continued to fall over many years.
It is quite ridiculous saying children should not be corrected or they will feel failures.  There ARE winners and losers in every area of society and the sooner children learn this and adapt the better prepared they will be for life after school.
We must return to the old system of teaching the three R’s properly, with correct spelling and grammar, no pocket calculators allowed in exams, competitive sports will be encouraged again, business studies will form part of their education so that they know how businesses are started and develop.
Grooming children for sex will immediately be prohibited from schools.  Sex education can be given in senior schools – but NOT in Primary - provided that it includes parenting and the penalties for under age sex.  This country has the highest underage pregnancy rate in Europe and the establishment cannot see it is directly attributable to increasing sex education at ever earlier ages.  Trying to encourage same sex partnerships by including it in sex education will cease. 
Children are expected to practice what they are taught, such as the 3R’s.  Why are politicians and educationalists surprised when this then applies to sex education?
At one time, religious education was enforced in schools yet now it appears that it may be taught providing the “truth about Evolution” is also taught.  This must be reversed, so that religion is taught and evolution explained as being a theory only.  Evolution raises too many unanswerable questions to be treated as anything other than a theory.
A Blueprint for Britain. Common sense solutions to our problems.
Great Britain is in a mess and needs to be cleaned up.

This country needs to revert back to being a pleasant, relatively safe and successful place in which to live.  We need to be better educated, responsible for our own actions and industrious.  We need to look after those who cannot do so for themselves but not those who deliberately will not.  We need to ensure people feel safe in their homes and neighbourhoods.

The Economy
The economy is in a mess and despite the Governments efforts through so called Quantitive Easing (printing money) we have seen no real benefit.  Banks are still reluctant to lend to businesses in order to help create employment.  No figures have been produced to show where the £375 BILLION or so money pumped into the Banks over the past 2 years or so has actually gone and the only effect the public has seen is the continuance of the obscene bonuses being paid to the bankers themselves.

Since we have seen no evidence for improvement to the economy due to the Quantitive Easing that has already been carried out, £375 BILLION, we must assume that the Banks have used that money for their own benefits.  Banks will therefore be required to pay back, say, £1BILLION per month each which can then be used to cover the VAT “lost”.
The Government could also set up a National Development Bank where businesses could obtain funds for developing businesses at lower rates than from commercial banks. All applicants should be limited companies and the NDB would hold, say, 25% of the shares. At the end of, say, five years the shares could be sold back to the company so that the money would now be available for new applicants. It is expected that the shares would be worth more than their original value and so the NDP would benefit also from this extra value.
One reason why small businesses fail is the pernicious way larger businesses, including Government Departments, take far too long to pay their bills.  It is suggested that it becomes illegal for ANY body that is invoiced for products or services to pay later than the end of the month following the receipt of that invoice.  Failure to do so will result in the automatic penalty of, say, 5% surcharge being added for each month or part month where the invoice is not paid.

Wealth Re-distribution.
Socialists and the trade unionists have long sought to obtain a greater part of the wealth that they are helping to create. In the 1970s and 80s wage demands of between 20% and 50% were quite common. However, no mention was ever made of increasing productivity to help cover these extra costs. As a result, the rate of inflation grew to 16%+ negating a large part of whatever gains had been made.
Corporation tax on company profits is currently 19%. We propose that all companies will share their gross profit with their employees so that the latter will have at least 25% of those profits allocated to them. As an incentive, the companies corporation tax would be reduced to 10% of the residue profits.
Failure to implement the profit sharing would mean the Corporation Tax would still be levied at at least 19%.
This will mean that both sides will benefit. The workers will get a bonus based on the profitability of the company, so encouraging them to increase productivity, and at the same time the company will pay less tax on the reduced amount of company profits.
Income tax will, of course, be paid on the bonuses involved, so improving the total paid to the Government.
9
Taxation.
Our system of taxation is far too complicated and unfair.  The level at which tax starts to be deducted is too low and gives no incentive to unemployed people to try to find a job.
Taxation should start at a higher level, suggested £15000.  Then ALL income should be taxed at one fixed level of, say, 25% to include the present NI contributions.  This will simplify the system and reduce costs.  It will also make it less attractive for high earners to try to hide their earnings in so called tax havens.
All monies earned in this country will be subject to UK taxation and the transferring of monies to other countries in order to offset taxation will not affect this.
Where other countries, mainly in Eastern Europe, have embarked on a single lower tax rate the actual revenue raised has increased and the economy has benefited.
One pernicious tax is Inheritance Tax, where beneficiaries have to pay 40% on the value of an estate even though tax will have already been charged in creating that estate.  This, again, has resulted in people using tax havens to move money to avoid this tax, so the benefits are actually very limited.  Its removal would result in a simpler system which, in turn, should result in tax savings by reduced Civil Service costs.
Council tax and business rates.
These are also unfair taxes and unnecessarily difficult to administer. Council taxes are based on a spurious valuation of premises and only one person living in that building is actually liable for the tax to be paid despite the fact that all will be using the resources that the council will be providing.
Business rates are based on the size of the premises used and this can be detrimental to businesses starting up.
A much fairer system would be a local sales tax applied to all sales made. This would encourage local councils to do all they can to help businesses generate sales. For example, instead of charging for 10
using car parks from the time a vehicle is parked, the first two hours could be free of charge and only those cars that are there for longer would have to pay for further parking. In the majority of cases people will be parking their vehicles for less than two hours, especially if they knew it was free. This would help to create a greater turnover of customers and therefore sales in the local areas.
This would be particularly useful for small businesses in the neighbourhood where there is at least one supermarket in the area having a large free car park which encourages customers.
We would reduce VAT as soon and as far as possible, partly by reclaiming the £375 BILLION we  gave to the Banks with Quantitive Easing.  This will encourage spending so creating more jobs which in turn will bring in more taxes.
11
The NHS
The NHS does not require extra funding, it needs a radical reform.
This is the National HEALTH Service, NOT the International MEDICAL or Immortality Service.  Far too many medical treatments are being given which should not be covered by the NHS.  For example, it seems that around £2 billion a year is spent treating drink related problems.  These treatments should be paid for by those who need it.  The same for such things as breast implants, removing tattoos, even sports related accidents, etc.  People should have taken out insurance to cover the costs for any medical treatment that may be required as a result of injuries sustained carrying out their sport.
The NHS is, like all other Civil Service Departments, overloaded with Management.  Again, heads of the Hospitals will need to be re-educated in better management so that more money is available where it is needed, for the treatment of patients.
In one large Staffordshire Hospital it is reported that there are 1100 staff, including porters, dealing directly with the patients while there are no less than 3000 admin staff. This is clearly quite ridiculous and must be changed as quickly as possible.
The whole structure of the NHS needs overhauling and refining.  It should revert back to being the National HEALTH Service by allowing the establishment of private hospitals to treat medical problems, including drunks as above, and perhaps such things as sport injuries, cosmetic surgery, etc.  This would dramatically reduce the load placed on the NHS so that wards could be opened and offices closed.
The NHS should enlarge or open more medical training schools for doctors and nurses to cater for the increasing population each year. They get enough information to know what’s the numbers are going to be necessary from the birth rate and the official immigration rates. The money is for these will come from the savings made by improved efficiency and the reduction in the clerical staff.
Doctors and nurses being trained at these schools should sign an agreement that they will remain with the NHS for at least five years after completion of their course rather than emigrating to other countries, so depriving us of their services. 12
Pensioners
The UKs records on its treatment of pensioners is appalling.  Despite being one of the richest countries in the EU it has by far the lowest pension as a percentage of average income. We would increase, as soon as possible, the main pension and as our policies take effect, resulting in significant savings, we would ensure that our pensions match more closely those of our less wealthy neighbours.
The disparity between the private sector and public sector in the way of pension provision must be addressed.  Although public sector Unions will scream if any attempt is made to reduce the level of their pensions relative to the private section, the private sector unions should be screaming about the level of contribution they are having to make to cover this.  Perhaps they should come to a public debate in which the general taxpayer is involved, to reach an agreement on what they consider acceptable for one side to receive and the other to contribute.
The State pension should be exempt from taxation so that people who have saved for their retirement are not penalised by having the State pension and their own pension added together for tax purposes.
The amount of state pension could be determined by the contributions made from the income earned by each individual. Therefore, those who spend all or most of their time on benefits will have a greatly reduced pension. If people want a State Pension, get a job.
13
Overseas Aid.
Whilst it is right that we give aid to overseas countries where required, this should not be in the form of actual money, which is diverted into officials pockets, but practical help.
If roads are needed we will help build them and train the people to continue afterwards.  Where schools and teachers are required we will help build them and train teachers.  The same with hospitals, etc.
In this way British companies can benefit from supplying trainers and materials and the level of aid is more easily controlled.
14
Education
Like the rest of our society, education is in a mess.  Left wing elements have infiltrated schools and tried to make all students the same.  This is patently impossible because we are all different and have different abilities.  All that has happened is that standards have continued to fall over many years.
It is quite ridiculous saying children should not be corrected or they will feel failures.  There ARE winners and losers in every area of society and the sooner children learn this and adapt the better prepared they will be for life after school.
We must return to the old system of teaching the three R’s properly, with correct spelling and grammar, no pocket calculators allowed in exams, competitive sports will be encouraged again, business studies will form part of their education so that they know how businesses are started and develop.
Grooming children for sex will immediately be prohibited from schools.  Sex education can be given in senior schools – but NOT in Primary - provided that it includes parenting and the penalties for under age sex.  This country has the highest underage pregnancy rate in Europe and the establishment cannot see it is directly attributable to increasing sex education at ever earlier ages.  Trying to encourage same sex partnerships by including it in sex education will cease. 
Children are expected to practice what they are taught, such as the 3R’s.  Why are politicians and educationalists surprised when this then applies to sex education?
At one time, religious education was enforced in schools yet now it appears that it may be taught providing the “truth about Evolution” is also taught.  This must be reversed, so that religion is taught and evolution explained as being a theory only.  Evolution raises too many unanswerable questions to be treated as anything other than a theory.
A Blueprint for Britain. Common sense solutions to our problems.
Great Britain is in a mess and needs to be cleaned up.                                                                             
It is almost impossible to know where to start first.  In any case, the mess is so great that it will take years to rectify since it has taken years to get into this terrible state.  Drastic and imaginative actions are needed as a matter of urgency.
We believe politicians should have the best interests of the country and the population as a whole at the heart of all their actions and decisions.  Unfortunately, all our politicians are career politicians who, mainly, have never spent time in the real world.  It is doubtful if even one has set up and run their own business successfully, using their own money, and yet they make laws that affect all businesses, mainly adversely.  As a result their actions are mainly aimed to help themselves, their party and their cronies rather than the country as a whole.
This country needs to revert back to being a pleasant, relatively safe and successful place in which to live.  We need to be better educated, responsible for our own actions and industrious.  We need to look after those who cannot do so for themselves but not those who deliberately will not.  We need to ensure people feel safe in their homes and neighbourhoods.
To do this we need to drastically improve many of the areas that are failing us today, such as education, law and order, the NHS, Defence, the economy, immigration, etc., etc.  Not necessarily in that order.  Since they ALL need drastic revision much of this will have to take place almost simultaneously.
2
Immigration.
This country has welcomed people from many lands, backgrounds and religions over centuries.  Until recently, these immigrants had integrated well into our society with minimal trouble.  They have learned our language and, although they had their own religions and culture, there has never been any real clash.  We have all lived amicably together and the immigrants have contributed to our society.
This changed with previous Governments dash for votes by encouraging unlimited immigration knowing that these newcomers will support them because of the terms under which they have arrived.
If a British person emigrated and then returned to this country for any reason, they have to provide for themselves in all aspects, housing,   health, pension, etc., until they had paid at least 12 months National Insurance.  This despite the fact that they had been paying taxes, etc. here before they moved abroad.
Compare that with the present situation where immigrants, many of whom illegally claim asylum, come here and are showered with gifts of all kinds, free housing, free health, free education, money to spend, even furniture, a vehicle, etc., etc. all having contributed nothing.
We cannot blame them for rushing to our shores to get in, either legally or illegally.  If there was another country offering us the same benefits we are likely to consider moving there at least.  The current position is biased against ethnic British people and so racist and will have to be changed.
However, the numbers coming here have resulted in our becoming the most overcrowded western country and it is never ending.  As a consequence, the indigenous population are suffering from overcrowded schools and hospitals, dangerous roads where many drivers are unlicensed or uninsured, where houses are unavailable because they have been taken by the immigrants and where crime has increased out of all proportion to the numbers.
The incentives for immigrants coming to this country should be removed so that they are treated at least partly as returning expats are.  They should have no benefits until they have contributed in taxes for at least five years.  This will dramatically reduce the dash to this country by people of all nationalities.
3
In the case of immigrants already here, if they are not contributing towards their costs here by way of taxes, they will be given one year in which to find a job so that they are no longer dependent on the State.  If they are unable to find employment within that period, especially if this is because they are unable to speak English sufficiently to hold down a job, they will be deported back to either their homeland or at least their port of embarkation when coming here.
Up to 25,000 GENUINE asylum seekers will be allowed in annually and given the support they need. However, to qualify they must conform to UN regulations, which states that they have to ask for asylum at the first safe country they enter after leaving their own.  There, our Embassy/Consulate staff will check their qualification for asylum to ensure they are genuinely in danger in their own country before issuing a Visa.
Any immigrant who breaks the law WILL be deported.  At present, most are being allowed to remain, even killers and rapists, on the basis of spurious Human Rights, usually that they are entitled to a family life.  That is accepted but will not prevent their deportation because they will be allowed to take their families with them.  We will pay for their deportation as well.
All visitors to Britain, either temporary or permanent, MUST have a Visa from our Consulates in their own country or the first country they enter if they are seeking asylum.  That Visa will only be issued if the person has valid health insurance and a certificate that they are not suffering any health problems or are pregnant at the time of travel. 
The Immigration authorities will be overhauled and strengthened, if necessary by using troops, so that every vehicle, plane or boat is checked for illegal immigrants.  In the case of vehicles and boats, the presence of illegal immigrants will mean the immediate return of that vehicle or boat to its original embarkation point.  Any illegal immigrants found in the country will be immediately deported back either to their country of birth or embarkation.
All immigrants will be fingerprinted when arriving or when being deported so that they can be identified later, if required.  All emigrants who have lived here for several years and paid at least 3 years taxes will be offered a resettlement payment to help get themselves re-established in their next country.

Law and Order.
All criminals are volunteers and so must accept any punishment attached to the crime committed.  Stricter rules and punishments will eventually result in smaller prison populations, saving considerably on the costs involved.
We have a huge number of laws, many of which are seldom if ever enforced.  Thus they are of little value so they will be either repealed or enforced in the future.  This particularly applies to under age sex, where nearly 6000 under age pregnancies occur each year but very rarely result in any arrests for rape.  Enforcing this law would result in fewer underage pregnancies.
When committing a crime the perpetrator gives up all but very basic rights, that is, to safe accommodation, basic food, basic medical care and some contact with their families.
All sentences will be served in full.  All sentences must be a disincentive to repeat the crime. For example, for fraud the sentence may be one year for every £10,000 involved.  It therefore would not pay to try to defraud somebody since they could gain far more by honest labour or actions.
Good behaviour will be rewarded with basic improvements, such as condiments for their food, access to a radio, educational instruction, trade instruction, etc.  When they act outside the rules, any or all of these may be removed from them.  They will not be allowed to have TV, computers or mobile phones while in prison.  This will be strictly enforced.
This is in line with the treatment of our Armed Forces who commit a crime and are sent to a “Glass House”
Direct contact with family will not be allowed, all visiting will be controlled using glass panels.  This will prevent unauthorised objects being passed to the prisoner.
All prisoners will have to carry out some work, either indoors for dangerous criminals or outdoors for those deemed not to be dangerous, in order to compensate their victims.
5
Where physical harm has been carried out the sentence will be the length of time it takes for the victim to recover plus several years, depending on the level of seriousness of the injuries.
To regain control over young offenders, for a first offence they may be cautioned, depending on the severity of the crime, but thereafter, any further crimes will attract a sentence at a “Boot Camp”.
These will be set up in various areas on State owned land, such as disused airfields, army camps, etc.. Initially these will be set up using adapted Portacabin type units housing up to 4 offenders.  Each offender will be able to earn rewards for good behaviour but if any member does mis-behave the basic rewards given out to each member may be removed for the whole cabin.  In this way the criminals will learn about collective responsibility.
The initial batches of offenders will be required to help in the building of their own Boot Camp, which will help instruct them in skills useful for the building industry.
Where prisoners cause damage to their cells or the prison they will have to repair it themselves and live in it until it is all repaired.
Rape laws will be enforced so that when an underage girl becomes pregnant the father WILL be charged with rape and sentenced accordingly.  This should significantly reduce underage pregnancies.
The Death Penalty.
The deliberate taking of someone’s life is abhorrent to most people.  The question of the death penalty is a very vexed one in which opinions are very divided.
Since the death penalty was removed in the 1960s, the number of murders each year has steadily increased.  Many murders are classed as Manslaughter and so the true figure is very distorted.
Where the Death Penalty has been returned, the number of murders has usually fallen dramatically, proving the deterrent effect it has.  When it was muted here before, prisoners awaiting trial for murder became extremely agitated, fearing they might be executed.
6
The use of the Death Penalty should be the subject of a National Referendum.
However, this should be looked at dispassionately.  As stated above, nobody likes the idea of deliberately taking someone else’s life.
Statistics show that when the death penalty is removed, the number of murders increases and where it has been returned murders are reduced.
It is usually claimed that an innocent person may be executed and so this sentence should not be used. Whilst that is possible, with modern science it is usually quite clear that the evidence shows who the murderer is.
When hanging was allowed the number of murders in this country was around 150/160 per year, say three a week.  Since its abolition this has risen to around 3 per day.  If we assume the Death Penalty is returned and we follow the trends of other nations who have taken similar action, the number of murders could be reduced by, say, 500.  Of the murderers charged and found guilty, how many might be innocent, 100%, 50%, 25%, 10%, 1%?  How many of the victims were innocent?  So we must decide where our duty lies, with the large number of innocent victims or the potentially very small number of innocent defendants.
In the first 15 years of this century around 1200 people have been officially murdered each year. If we went back to the figures when hanging was allowed it means that somewhere around 8000 people, innocent people, would have been saved had the death penalty still been law.
Where several people may be involved in a murder, it will not be necessary to prove who performed the actual deed.  All will be deemed equally guilty unless they can prove they tried to prevent the killing.  The old system of joint responsibility or being an accessory before, during or after the act will apply.  This applies to any crime, particularly those involving physical injuries or rape.
7
The Economy
The economy is in a mess and despite the Governments efforts through so called Quantitive Easing (printing money) we have seen no real benefit.  Banks are still reluctant to lend to businesses in order to help create employment.  No figures have been produced to show where the £375 BILLION or so money pumped into the Banks over the past 2 years or so has actually gone and the only effect the public has seen is the continuance of the obscene bonuses being paid to the bankers themselves.
Rather than give money directly to the Banks and hope that they will pass this on by responsible lending it would be better to use it, for example, to reduce or eliminate VAT.  In that way people will buy more, creating more jobs, increasing company profits and increasing general taxation receipts while at the same time reducing some of the costs of benefits.
Since we have seen no evidence for improvement to the economy due to the Quantitive Easing that has already been carried out, £375 BILLION, we must assume that the Banks have used that money for their own benefits.  Banks will therefore be required to pay back, say, £1BILLION per month each which can then be used to cover the VAT “lost”.
The Government could also set up a National Development Bank where businesses could obtain funds for developing businesses at lower rates than from commercial banks. All applicants should be limited companies and the NDB would hold, say, 25% of the shares. At the end of, say, five years the shares could be sold back to the company so that the money would now be available for new applicants. It is expected that the shares would be worth more than their original value and so the NDP would be
