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?

All this is additional to the fact that every citizen will live in a healthier, better educated, dynamic, creative, innovative society, with substantially reduced crime.

Why Give Everyone an Unconditional Basic Income?

Why Give Everyone an Unconditional Basic Income?

1. Students would be free to study at Uni

2. Stay at home parents would be free to nurture their own children.

3. Budding entrepreneurs would be free to develop their ideas and products and help provide the solutions to some of the critical situations we face as a species.

Single parents and the disabled part 2

So, “what about single parents” and “what about the disabled who cannot get extra paid work?”

Seems the right think Unconditional Basic Income is a left wing idea and wail about hippy students sharing a house together and clubbing their incomes to live the high life.

While the left think its a right wing idea and worry about equal payments for rich and poor.

Oh well, its nice to successfully unite both political extremes I guess.

Anyway back to the questions and great questions they both are.

So much so that I would say that different levels of Unconditional Basic Income for different circumstances i.e adults, children, the disabled, single parents and OAP’s is open to discussion.

However, until any negotiation takes place, this is how we would answer those questions.

Unconditional Basic Income makes everyone an entrepreneur.

Housing for OAP’s and the disabled is a new market for all those budding entrepreneurs to exploit.

Unconditional Basic Income enables relatives and friends of single parents to be able to choose to help out, because they will have the time to do so, if they should so wish.

Unconditional Basic Income enables single parents to move nearer to relatives and/or to less expensive areas and help regenerate those areas.

Unconditional Basic Income empowers social enterprises to meet the needs of single parents and the disabled, because there will be an influx of people who will now decide to use their time to volunteer.

Failing that legalize and tax cannabis and use every penny to help OAP’s, single parents and the disabled.

what do you think?
