Immediate Clean Slate for all Non-Fraudulent Tax Credit Overpayments

Write off all non-fraudulent tax credit overpayments whilst continuing to recover those resulting from claimant fraud.  This will save innocent, hardworking families from the distress and hardship caused by system-created errors, and will save the millions of pounds currently being wasted on forcing families who spent their awards in good faith to somehow find money they do not have.  Compassion and sound economics all in one!

Right to Die – s2(1) Suicide Act 1961

As the law currently stands it is an offence to 'aid, abet, counsel or procure the suicde of another'. 

This has the effect of criminalising those who assists a person, who is physically unable to end their own life, to commit suicide.  As suicide is not illegal and is essentially part of an individuals right to autonomous conduct, this is arguably discriminatory against disabled persons – in particular the terminally ill.

Surely we have the right to die with some dignity?

Remove all ‘internal market’ constraints from public sector

Whereas previously sections of the public sector (most importantly health and education) used to serve their local communties, now, thanks to the implementation of 'internal market' economic strategies, they are now locked in competition with each other to secure funding.
