Bar signatories to the Scottish Claim of Right (1988) from holding office in British government.

 
 
Signatories to the Scottish Claim of Right affirm that the interests of Scotland are paramount over those of all other countries, including those of other parts countries in the United Kingdom.
 
The claim states:
 
"We, gathered as the Scottish Constitutional Convention, do hereby acknowledge the sovereign right of the Scottish people to determine the form of Government best suited to their needs, and do hereby declare and pledge that in all our actions and deliberations their interests shall be paramount."

All Proposed Laws Should Attain ‘Crystal Mark’ (As per the Plain English Campaign) Before Being Added To The Statute Books

I propose a requirement that all new legislation must be written clearly and in plain English so as to be be readily understood.

I also propose that existing legislation be gradually translated/rewritten into plain English until such time as all Laws are similarly accessible.

Smoking Ban – Let’s have a referendum!

Moderators – this thread is NOT the same is the other smoking threads, so please don't delete it!

It doesn't matter if you are for or against the smoking ban, what matters is that the public are asked what THEY think and want, through a fair referendum.

Let the public decide what should be done about the smoking ban and allow the government to follow the wishes of its electorate. No other decision is lawful or in any way appropriate if this country is, as it proclaims, a democracy.

The referendum could give 4 options to vote on:-

1. Keep and extend the current smoking ban, to include all public places.

2. Keep the existing smoking ban as it is, with no further changes.

3. Relax the smoking ban to allow private business' (pubs, clubs, cafe's and restaurants etc) to decide on their own smoking policy, or have inside separate ventilated smoking areas etc.

4. Reverse the smoking ban completely, i.e. to how it was in the 1970's.

Reduce Council’s costs – Use English only

Stop spending money on translations, translators and their administrators; people should be able to understand English. Those that can't should be required to provide, at their cost, family members or friends to explain any documents etc. Those who have managed to get into this country without understanding English and  without family or friends should not be here claiming support.

A TAX SYSTEM FOR THE DIGITAL AGE… ‘The George Tax’

 

THE GEORGE TAX

Current taxation systems throughout the world were developed for a physical currency transaction, this means it is a tax system that can easily be avoided and is inherently corrupt in that the richest can avoid tax through highly paid Lawyers and Accountants finding loopholes in the system, and cash only business can avoid tax by not declaring transactions.

A digital age taxation system would allow the Government to collect tax electronically at a centralised point of transaction, and would also allow the government to deploy algorithms to calculate a 'Real Time' tax rate which could adjust dynamically to the expenditure requirements of government, rather than the government being forced to go cap in hand to the bond markets or raise taxation retrospectively on budget day.

IMPLEMENTING THE GEARGE TAX

The starting point for a digital age taxation system would be to abolish the entire UK taxation and cash transaction system and start from scratch.

Algorithms would need to be formulated (A.) to determine the value of all financial transactions carried out in the UK and between the UK and Overseas and (B.) Projected governmental expenditure for the year calculated in real time.

To collect THE GEORGE TAX,  centralised electronic transaction hubs would be built and developed throughout the UK and each of these would be connected in a network to each other and to a master hub connected to the banks where tax is collected as a percentage of each transaction passing through the hub.

THE GEORGE TAX is essentially a transaction tax. Whenever a financial transaction is carried out, a percentage of that transaction is taken as a tax, the tax percentage is calculated in 'Real Time' and would be variable by miniscule percentage movements using an algorithm calculating government spending requirements for the tax year against projected UK financial transactions for the tax year.

All financial transactions including share dealing, bank to bank transfers etc.. would have to pass through the hubs by law, with serious penalties for non compliance.

For small transactions, pre paid cash cards containing say £10 in value could be purchased 'TAX PAID' at shops and supermarkets etc.. these could then be used to pay for small purchases in store and at temporary outlets and outdoor events etc. where terminal connections to the centralised transaction hubs cant be made.

The cards could possibly be top up cards or disposable depending on security issues, but this would negate the need for cash in today’s society, it would also mean that transactions could be carried out without a need for a connection to the main hubs or to a power source as payment tills could be battery or solar powered and would not need a phone line, all transactions taken through these cards would then be uploaded at a later date through a connected terminal to the main transaction hubs.

The benefits of THE GEORGE TAX, are that it is a simple one tax system, it can be collected at the time of transaction, it will reduce business costs significantly, would increase tax collection to near 100%, would be 100% fair, would reduce government expenditure significantly, and would reduce the overall tax burden on the individual significantly, cutting red tape and tax loop holes to pretty much zero.

THE GEORGE TAX is a progressive digital age tax system, that is simple and effective, it just needs a progressive and visionary government to implement it in its simplest form.

The basic rule is to keep it very simple, tax the transaction at a single real time rate, a one tax system.

I can envisage an extremely low tax rate of a percentage of 1% using THE GEORGE TAX , every single financial transaction in the UK and between the UK and Overseas would be taxed at the time of transaction, this amounts to a staggeringly huge sum of money available to be taxed against.

Because the tax is a transaction tax, both sides of the transaction are taxed, therefore a transaction of £1.00 is actually worth £2.00 for taxable purposes.

The benefits to society and the UK economy would be immeasurable!

THE GEORGE TAX – Should be this governments legacy to this great nation, i give my idea for FREE, in the hope that somebody with the vision of progress will take it forward.

Why call it the  THE GEORGE TAX?

Well its my last name, its my idea, so why not!  😉

Free care for the old, make prisoners pay instead.

My suggestion is to repeal the laws that compel the old to sell their homes and instead charge criminals for the cost of their sentences. To prevent the impact of negative cash flow sending people back to crime, my suggestion has two potential penalties: additional tax and a charge on the criminal's estate.

For a first offence I suggest a tax surcharge of 0.5% to be applied for every year of the sentence (not time served) after release, possibly to be paid into a bond which could be repaid after ten years of good behaviour. For a second offence I would raise that charge to 1% and for a third offence 5%. As an alternative for well heeled individuals who could avoid tax I would apply a charge to their estate to paid when they die.

Oblish Income Tax, VAT, Rates, Capital & Corperation, Duty

Fair Tax system, it has been said by top US econmical professors that if they were designing a tax system from new they would plan it on sales tax only. In the USA there is a growing grass roots desire for a fair and newer tax system for the 21st centry backed by buiness leader, senate membbers and the  man in the street. Google it….!

All wages paid as gross its all your money until you spend it, there is nothing wong with a verying degree of taxion that are transparent. These tax rates may veriry from 1% to 30% depending on the worth or banding value ie. Goods between £1 to £499 – £500 to £999 – £1000 to £2000 extra.

Or every item or service is independantly assesed for tax rateing.

The Tax would be linked to the econmy, And colled as a sales tax, this sales tax could be divided in to Federal (UK) Country, County and distric so all elements of goverment are founded by the products and service companines that are attracted to that region/area.

The tax would be collected across the counter, and paid weekly by retailers, buisness people in to local postoffice/bank holding accounts which would then be distrubited to all goverment main holding accounts on a monthly basies. (Free money to found postoffice bank to use on overnight money markets as a return for no admin charge to goverment)

This will also cut 50% or more of the civel servant at the inland revenue thus reducing a burden on the public purse. This would also reduce the red tape, it would benifit goverment as the tax revenue would be come availble every mounth rather than yearly or quarterly (VAT) this would then effect the way the goverment borrows money.

The implecation are fantasic the savings would benfit us all, I think there would need to be a regulation about removing money from UK and that would have to be taxed as it leaves.

Were there is a will theres a way, lets not dismiss this.

Every item sold would be subject a rate of tax (homes from 10% upto 30% for house over a certain value)

Fair Treatment for Israel

Especially towards the end of the last administration the sovereign nation of Israel has received unfair treatment. My idea would be to reversal thre o of the policies and treat the sovereign country like any other country. The first policy to stop the use of the term, "occupied terroritory" for the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Israel did not enter Gaza or the West Bank in the same manner that Sadaam Hussein enterd Kuwait or the Russian entered Afghanistan. Instead the West Bank and Gaza came into being as terrority, rightfully caputred during the Six Day, in which Egypt, Jordan, and Syria tried to destroy Israel. As a result of the war the terrorities became a part of Israel. This means Israel has a right to the land just like the US has a right to the land caputured from the Native Americans.

Second reversal would be to seek the reversal of the labelling of products that come from Israel. It serves no purpose other than to inflame feeling on the subject and it works contrary to public policy. Furthermore it seeks to further divide the public and as a consumer it will make me seek out products from Israel so that I can support the country.

Repeal of the Sex Discrimination (Election Candidates) Act 2002

The basis of this idea is to repeal the Sex Discrimination (Election Candidates) Act 2002, which exempts the selection of candidates by political parties from sex discrimination laws.  Repealing this law would restore full sex discrimination legsialtion to the selection of candidates for elections by political parties.

Trespassers, especially those trespassing with the intent to break the law such as thieves, vandals, etc, should not be able to sue those who own the property in the event that the trespasser hurts themselves.
