Address Government’s limited power to block or repeal EU Regulations

Address the problem of the Government's limited power to block new EU Regulations.

Protect and Restore our Sovereign Rights. 

Address the problem of the Government's limited power to repeal existing EU Regulations.

More time and attention should be given to negotiate and release our nation from the Red Tape that the EU has imposed, so that our elected government has more room to manoeuvre in introducing new domestic regulations.

Move income tax, to a tax on dirty energy

 

If we want to encourage clean energy development and lower electricity use, we should raise taxes on emissions created by power plants, so that dirty energy costs more to produce than clean energy. 

If a tax based on the amount of pollutants a power station produced was raised significantly it would make renewable energy economically advantages.  Making clean energy cheaper than that produced by fossil fuels would lead to a surge in renewable energy projects.  This would lower pollution, create a secure energy supply and help the economy through investment.

Obviously this would lead to higher energy prices.  The government should offset this by lowering income tax.  Maybe the Liberal Democrats could get their 10,000 income tax threshold.  Those on fixed incomes would also need an increase, paid for by the emissions tax.  This would be a fairer system of taxation.

Restore power to the teachers

I am currently a sixth former at my local state school and am appauled daily by the lack of control the teachers feel they have over pupils who are consequently allowed to run riot. This needs to be stopped. Teachers should definately be given the moral highground once again, they need to know that the Government are backing them and giving them the power to enforce discipline properly, rather then sending for higher members of staff who recieve exactly the same treatment. The pupils know they can cause trouble without facing any real implications and therefore enjoy roaming the school doing as they please, with the occasional after school detention as their only punishment. The whole system needs to be looked into, and the nanny state needs to be clamped, pupils constantly use their human rights and the fact that 'they'll take you to court' if you as far as touch them, to acknowledge their power within the classroom and students who want to learn and are not at all disrupted find themselves recieving low quality education as a result of this. I'm not suggesting pupils should be smacked by a slipper everytime they speak out of turn, but for the teachers to regain control in the classroom and for constantly disruptive pupils to be secluded or excluded once and for all, as the current charges on schools that exclude pupils means that troublesome youngsters are being allowed back time and time again so that the school can escape the fine.

To make the installation of Smart Meters in our homes voluntary

Instead of the compulsory installation of these intrusive meters in our homes, it should be done on a voluntary basis, so that those who want them can have them, and those that dont can say no, and they can be removed at any time if requested!

Repeal Law To Remove Police Powers to Arrest for All Offences

I submit that the legislation enacted by a former, now utterly disgraced, Home Secretary which gave our Police the power to arrest for any offence at all is being grossly abused by some officers and should be repealed forthwith.

Prior to the bringing into force of this legislation, there were arrestable and non-arrestable offences. I submit that such differentiation should be restored immediately and the powers of Police to arrest be restricted to arrestable offences only, as before.

At the same time, we might give due consideration to further clarity on  the so-called 'necessity to arrest' and the grounds upon which arrest can be deemed necessary.

OPT OUT OF EUROPE ALL TOGETHER

The cost of being in Europe is prohibiting the real expansion of business within the UK so removing us from the Union would ultimately result in more job creation and faster growth.

Along with this would come the benefit of not having to pay a membership fee of some £40billion a year for a rebate of £9billion a net loss of £30billions a year which would wipe out the national debt within 6 years.

If this government is intent on keeping its promise of fair representation for all then it must realise that European intervention in everything we do is against that promise so we must pull out now.

Get out of the drain on public finance which is Europe

The E.U cost us £40billion per year, that is a conservative estimate but the real cost to business may be regarded as far higher when one equates the number of what people see as idiotic rules and regulations emanating daily from some unelected think tank hidden away in Brussels.The following statement is from civitas.

 

      If the UK were to leave the EU, there would be no net loss of jobs or trade. In addition, we would be between £17 billion and £40 billion per year better off, possibly more. 

 

Even if the true cost were to be the minimum saving of £17billion within ten years the economy would be back in the black.

Legislation regarding health and safety should be based on individual circumstances and not some bland restrictive cover all measure which will always come from the EU. the EU system is designed to equate to the lowest common denominator and will always restrict growth within the UK because we will always be paying more in to in effect shackle ourselves than we will ever get back out in subsidies.
