Take away my vote and give me money instead please.

Its taken as given that under “first past the post” we don’t have equal voting power and therefore we don’t live in a democracy

But

Even with direct Proportional Representation, we still wouldn’t have a democracy.

The only way to create a true democracy is to give every citizen a sizeable disposable income.

He who has money to buy, has the power to dictate what goods/services are valuable and “worth paying for” and what goods/services are not valuable and not “worth paying for”.

Give every citizen a sizeable disposable income and see what sort of society we create then.

In fact I’d rather live in a society where every citizen has a sizeable disposal income but no voting rights than the other way round.

Why should the privileged few dictate what is valuable and what isn’t.

If you had a sizable disposable income what would you spend it on?

Cameron lies expose

David Cameron won the 2015 UK General Election because he successfully lied to the public by blaming labour instead of the global banking crisis for the recession of 2010.

This post is an account of all the other idiocies, fabrications and outright lies David Cameron comes out with while serving as Prime Minister.

Tuesday 12th May 2015

David “we intend to double free child care”

Truth – Every child is born with 24 hour a day free child care. Its called a parent you dickhead!

Work hard? You mean Earn hard David.

When Cameron says “those who work hard and do the right thing are able to get on.”

He means those who “earn hard” not “work hard” there’s a big difference.

Everyone works at something, but its corporations and companies that decide what work “pays”

He wants us to allow companies and corporations, markets and the few humans who actually have vast wealth to decide what “work” is valuable.

If they decide your work isn’t valuable? Die please!

We live in a world where it doesn’t matter how much demand there is for my skills, products or services, if those who demand my services can’t afford to pay for them, then my services aren’t valuable.

My solution

Gift every citizen an unconditional basic income.

Gift every citizen the resources to survive.

If you could

“Earn hard” doing something a corporation  or market decides it wants you to do

Or

“Work hard” doing something you love and feel passionate about.

Which one creates a better society?

How do you fancy £11,375 every year in Tax Free Unconditional Basic Income. No strings Attached?

How do you fancy Cutting MP’s Pay In Half?

How do you fancy Abolishing All MP’s Expenses?

 

How do you fancy giving the people of Bristol the chance to vote for all of the above?

 

In the 2010 General Election I changed my name by deed poll to “none of the above” and promised to resign immediately if elected. Creating history by turning myself into the first official genuine “none of the above” option on a UK ballot paper.

This time I want to offer something positive.

 

If elected in the 2015 General Election I will

1. Pay every UK adult citizen aged 16 and over, whether earning in other paid work, non earning or retired, £11,375 a year in Tax Free Unconditional Basic Income. No strings Attached

Note: every UK child citizen aged 0-15 years, will be paid £2650 a year in Tax Free Unconditional Basic Income. No strings Attached

 

2. Cut MP’s pay in half

 

3. Abolish all MP’s expenses

 

 

But I need your help to do it.

I need £500 to enter the election

I need £700 to post my manifesto to every one of the 50,000 households in my constituency

 

As I’m not currently an MP, I can’t fiddle my expenses or sell knighthoods to raise the money.

Nor can I sell lunch at Downing Street for £250,000 a pop can I David.

So I’m begging you for the money instead.

 

If you would like to help but can’t afford to donate any money, please feel free to “like” and “share” this campaign widely.

Or better still stand for election yourself.

 

Unconditional Basic Income: FAQ 

1. Wouldn’t it just contribute toward inflation?

If giving every adult £200 a week would contribute to inflation, what would happen if everyone “worked hard and got on” (current Conservative manifesto mantra) and earned an extra £200 a week? Would that also be eaten up in inflation? If so “working hard and getting on” is just as pointless as giving everyone an unconditional basic income.

 

2. Wouldn’t it undermine the incentive to work?

It does exactly the opposite. It incentivises work, because it abolishes the benefits trap. Anyone doing any form of paid work will always be better off than someone subsisting on their Tax Free Unconditional Basic Income.

It also frees the entrepreneurial spirit in every citizen

 

3. What is your  fully costed plan detailing how the Tax Free Unconditional Basic Income would be paid for and implemented?

Paying every adult aged 16 and over, £11,375 a year and every UK child citizen aged 0-15 years, £2650 a year in Tax Free Unconditional Basic Income. No strings Attached, SAVES the UK taxpayer £12 billion a year.

Based on these figures from the citizens income trust

http://www.citizensincome.org/filelibrary/poster2013.pdf

The cost of implementing the Tax Free Unconditional Basic Income. No strings Attached is £619 billion

 

51 million adults aged over 16 to be paid £11,375 every year = £580 billion

11 million children aged 0-15 to be paid £2,650 every year = £29 billion

 

The money to pay the Tax Free Unconditional Basic Income, No strings Attached, can be raised like this

Abolish current benefits system = £204 billion

Abolish personal tax allowance and pay 50% tax on first £10,000 in income = £170 billion

Raise income tax from 20% to 50% = £232 billion

Abolish housing benefit = £25 billion

 

Total raised = £631 billion

Total spent = £619 billion

 

therefore

 

Paying every UK adult aged 16 and over, £11,375 a year and every UK child citizen aged 0-15 years, £2650 a year in Tax Free Unconditional Basic Income. No strings Attached, SAVES the UK taxpayer £12 billion a year.

 

Enough to double the UK transport budget!

 

Note:

Any individual currently earning less than £29,000 a year will be financially better off under this proposal.

Any couple earning less than £59,000 a year will be financially better off under this proposal.

As a society we will thrive.

What about single mums?

I was talking to a single mum tonight. Recieves £190 a week in benefits and £900 a month in housing benefit. Let’s say about £24,000 a year.

She would recieve £11375 + £5300 for her 2 kids.

Shes £7000 a year worse off under UBI.

When I explained how UBI works, she’s free of conditions, benefit sanctions and its unconditional, no strings attached.

She said she’d “snap my fucking hand off” her words not mine.

Said she could find a way to live on £17000 a year and home educate her kid.

Its the freedom that appeals.

Then I explained she would also be able to get a 25 year interest free mortgage repayable at source from her UBI at £80 a week and she said she would buy a boat with it.

So she’s actually better off financially anyway

You could be over £100 a week better off, without changing a thing.

If your annual salary is £14,000, you currently take home £13,200 every year. (after paying 20% income tax)

With the tax free unconditional basic income you get £7,000 (after paying 50% income tax) + £11,375 (tax free unconditional basic income) taking home £18,375 every year.

So, with Unconditional Basic Income You’re £5,175 a year better off

That’s almost £100 a week!!!!!!!!

Wanna know how much better off you will be?

Why not try our New Net Income Calculator

1. How much is half your annual salary?

2. Add £11,375

3. Total is your new net annual salary.

Obviously if there are two adults in your household you both need to do this calculation separately. Then add the two totals together.

Also add £2,650 per child in your household aged 0-15 years.

If you have a child living with you who is 16+ they will also need to do steps 1, 2 & 3.

Divide by 12 for your new monthly income.
Divide by 52 for your new weekly income

Would you be better off?
