Two of the policy ideas that were agreed yesterday. ‘Keep it Simple’ was the aim and DOUBLE THE DOLE and a MAXIMUM WAGE fit perfectly along with our MANSION TAX. As others go on the defensive Class war says DOUBLE THE DOLE. Other policies discussed were maximum working week of 30 hours – or the 4 hour day – with no pay reduction – paid for by wealth tax and AFFORDABLE HOUSING paid for by Mansion Tax and existing accommodation made available by exit from inner cities of fleeing gentrifiers unable to pay Mansion tax. City centres re-occupied by the working class.
Removal of beer tax in independently owned pubs
Maximum price limit on football tickets
Rural land reform – seizure of large estates from the landed gentry
Immediate amnesty on Payday loans
All policy ideas for discussion over next three months before adoption at Class War conference in May.
