Ban private schools

Ban Private Schools

They perpetuate the gross inequalities in the UK; this can only be addressed if they are erased completely.

The two other alternatives which might be more palatable to our politicians are taxing the life out of those that can afford private education (almost impossible), or paying teachers in state education more than those employed privately to drain public schools of their best resource. We do this in many other public sectors to attract the best talent, so why not in education?

Abolish the Monarchy.

Antiquated, expensive and utterly pointless, as well as perpetuating the idea that status and prestige are a privilege of birth.

Abolish the honour system

Not only is this system open to abuse, but we are an international laughing stock, giving out orders for an Empire that has long ceased to exist.

Roll out London Living Wage nationally

The very idea that anybody should be forced to live on 5.73 an hour should be abhorrant to any UK citizen.

Ensure that no person, financial institution or business can borrow money more than they could possibly ever pay back.

The idea that some financial institutions were borrowing up to 50 times against their assets is ridiculous, in what is clearly a doomed strategy.

Equally, 125% mortgages?!

We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.

We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.

    Utterly bonkers…. Please oh please put this irrelivant nonsense into the Labour Manifesto and lets destroy the Labour Party totally.

    Do creatures like this still exist in the Labour Party? I see you missed out confiscation of private property, abolition of marriage (sorry female-slavery) and execution of the rentier-bourgeoise-kulak class. Why so reticent? Saving this for the second term? Wrong century brother. I think North Korea would be more to your liking.

    You’re all entitled to your opinion but let’s keep it civil.

    Sorry old boy, the Labour Party is obviously a lot tamer since I was a member let me rephrase… ‘Do ‘free-thinkers’ like this still exist in the Labour Party? I see you missed out confiscation of private property, abolition of marriage (sorry female-slavery) and execution of the rentier-bourgeoise-kulak class. Why so reticent? Saving this for the second term? Wrong century brother. I think North Korea would be more to your liking’.
