it would be nice to people talk about future policies from a position of compassion and ambition rather than using Brexit as a way to get even or focus just on immigration and benefits.

There seems very little discussion about what people want specifically for their kids and future generations. That seems....odd.


you don't want to talk about any future for anyone other than you and your own twisted agenda.
you care about nothing but yourself.
you pretend to care and want to discuss issues.
you are a charlatan who is completely self obsessed.
you really should work on yourself rather than trying to lecture others you know nothing about.
what you should do is go talk to normal people and stop trying to bully people into your way of thinking.

For me we need a fairer society to fix anomalies of the benefits system.

Example...

A poor person receives housing benefit, because as a tenant they cannot afford the rent, they are then stigmatised as a benefit claimant.

Rich person then receives that benefit, because as the landlord they cannot afford to lower the rent, and is then called an entrepreneur.

Poor person can no longer afford pension because of high housing costs, therefore any savings they have must be used first to pay rent before any support is given after retirement.

However, as the rich person owns their own home they have no need for housing benefit, they also have a pension and no need for support, therefore their savings remain intact and they continue to receive rent from the poor person.

The system is skewed towards keeping the poor forever poor, tarnished and stigmatised. Yet the rich have been the benefactors throughout.

This is merely one thing that needs addressing.

Erm... no. I don't think you do understand how this system works.

The cars are paid for. They offer a range of vehicles to suit different people's physical needs. A disabled person gives up their benefit in exchange for the vehicle. Some people can't get employed because of their disability. People like my mum who suffers with MS. People don't just have physical symptoms, they have emotional ones too. You need to educate yourself before getting green-eyed over the car someone else drives.

Thought we were past this demonising of the disabled... I guess not. Oh and by the way, free parking has nothing to do with Motability. It's to do with the blue badge system that you apply for at the council. It's to help people with disabilities so they can get easier access. You know, being a considerate human being and looking after those more vulnerable?

Some of you belong back in the age of dinosaurs where the old and weak were left behind to die. Disgusting.

Wait till you see what benefits you get if you bankrupt a major business (like BHS) and sell of its assets to put food on the table for your family and buy them the odd yacht instead of a private jet.

Taxes must rise.

Tax evasion/avoidance is increasing and it's leaving a big bill for the rest of us to pick up; unfortunately even if we succeed in totally getting rid of benefits, pensions and nhs we still won't have enough to run the country at it's present level, thus taxes must rise.

Removal of Undemocratic MPs who are trying to void the result of UK Democratic Referendum result (that they handed to the people with a vote of 6 to 1 in parliament) they are currently trying to twist the terms of the Referendum by trying to entangle Invoking Article 50 and the terms of leaving the EU into one.

The people voted to leave the EU, the vote was Remain or Leave nothing else.

I know of so many do exactly this, it is a pension, including some Aussies and Kiwis who gone back home and receiving a steady pension from rent managed by Foxtons. There is one caveat, the shares investment, an alternative, go up and down and the banking investment is burgeoning with so much trading activity that a lot of capital gain is creamed off with every sale and buy in investment and unit trusts so their return on investment has plummeted in last 20 years.

The wind of change? Much of it is useless, unless the politicians pay using House of Commons expenses, which they do, researchers to monitor social network sites, for opinions...NOTE that polling companies collect polling data and analyse them using statistics BUT the statistical data has to be manually interpreted using known principles and assumptions. When the polls get it wrong, it is ususally due to the assumptions made and apply to the accurate statistical data which is then used to make predictions. As can be seen in US and UK elections, these assumptions were wrong as the actual opinions on the ground tore up their assumptions rule book. So it is important for them to trawl for useful stuff off the social networks.

Or we need to make more exports by diverting workers who do internal services for nationals at home; only exports bring down balance of trade deficits (and to reduce our current account deficit, worse than this as it has been negative since 1980s). Every £1m business injected into UK is worth much more than £1m business internal in UK generated due to money circulation.

We should but we cannot. A doctor immigrant in 2016/7 is not a celibate and will have no parents, children and relatives. Moreover, when PM May just been to India to do some trade talks, she cannot command to the Indian PM to line up all the potential immigrants and say, I want him, her... BUT not him, her...or say I just want your doctors but no office workers because we have enough.

It is not so simple, the government calculate a cost per vehicle and decision made based on the lowest cost of ownership...e.g. re-sale value at end of lease is also a key factor. Ex-mobility cars need to be what the customer will buy in the after market is a big factor.

You mentioned studying there and that brings me on to education. That's something we as a society need to invest more in and if that means higher taxes then I hope the stories have the guts to do it.

Education is the greatest leveller in society and it's biggest driver of social mobility.

You also read about some deprived areas shutting almost all their libraries. I'd like to see us either invest more here or look to technology to change that. When we have so much of the worlds great literature either in public domain or available cheaper, couldn't we look to an e-solution?

Imagine every child with an e-reader from age 5.

We have been since 1973 trying to increase and we have increased taxes and to spend money wisely, and we have. Both of which have reached a point of law of diminishing returns after 40 years. Yet we have a big current account deficit year on year, partly offset by financial services (approx. half due to internal use and half due to export of these services but we also import other countries financial services too). We can only get out of current troubles, accummulated in the last 40 years, by exporting more goods and services in return for foreign curreny rather than borrow and do quantitiative easing and public finance initiatives.

I know what you are saying, it may be useless and makes very or no difference but it is the human community feeling that makes a tiny thing hot; such as 20g less or more for a £1 Toblerone (150g <-170g). And this community is HOTUKDEALS. it may be very similar to a big charitable community, some people just tak politics all day and achieve "nothing", such as those who post no deals (at least some of us do POST deals and do some work in my big charitable community analogy).

your making the assumption that every child can be of great intelligence, wrong.

if you honestly think that it shows how far you are from knowing anything about our society.

I think every child has potential and that any imagination can be fired. I'd much rather kids read then be plonked in front of screens.

But I'm glad you're engaging in constructive dialogue.

I also think secondary education needs reform. More grammars, more technical colleges to teach skills and an end to suggesting all kids need to go to uni as you say.

Anyway, need to take the family to the local war memorial in the village.

I would think the majority of people would prefer to work full time.
a small minority choose not to.
I really think your attitude to the benefits system is skewed because of a very tiny amount of people claiming who are highly publicised.
the person you see on a documentary with 7 kids is not your average benefits claimant.
the person on disability cleaning windows or playing football is not your average claimant.
not all pensioners are loaded.
If you are working full time why should you get anything?
bait not taken, just a statement and a question.

Like Shadey, I prefer to direct my rage against the setup at the top which cost us far far more rather then the bottom. The problem is they create a lot of jobs and to some extent wealth for the country but I'd rather see them hit hard and take a knock myself in gdp or cost of living etc then let them drain us over a long period of time.
The benefit scrounges , whilst there are some do not worry me as much. I only have to stand outside the benefit centre to know how they live (I know some dress down for the occasion and a few have it easy) .

We need someone to blame and the media give us that so we don't look at the people who are in charge and hide behind fancy intellectual words with the backing of their media friends with big pockets to evade most situations.

That's the only thing I like about brexit in the sense that it's given people something to think about and change but the baggage that goes with brexit makes me worried.

Since you seem to be some sort of expert in democracy, can you explain why a party that 1.4m voters voted for has 56 seats in Parliament whereas a party that 3.8m voters voted for has only one seat?

Taxation on multiple home ownership is a must. Attractive rural areas are a magnet for second or even third homes, raising demand and preventing locals from being able to afford to remain in their home towns or villages.

Cut down on litigation for ridiculous damages, merely funding a legal system uninterested in the individuals welfare.

Australian visa system, so occupations in need can recruit from anywhere in the world, and conversely for unneeded skills to be refused access thus preventing added pressure onto the infrastructure.

Convicted criminals to be penalised with a higher tax rate. For instance, for each year spent in prison, increase their tax by 1% for the same length of term of imprisonment. Therefore helping to fund the institution and aid better retention of staff and improve rehabilitation projects.

For slightly left of field infrastructure projects, build a crossing onto the Isle of Wight, removing the difficult access of drawn out ferry crossings. That will greatly increase the possibility of developing an undeveloped part of the sout. Think of the 60's and 70's development of Milton Keynes, Peterborough and Northampton etc, large scale profects.

Just a few to get me started.

who in UK politics said "democracy" and sincere about it? Hint "Ronchew's question"?
.
Moreover, why is it on ballot paper, many do ask , "none of the above" suits me?
.
Democracy is only possible with an instant electronic vote (supplemented by ballot paper) for each and every choice directly. Analogy, a village decision for all , everyone goes to (virtual) village hall, and instantly do a show of hands for "yes" or "no".
