CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM

The UK’s constitutional arrangements need Reform.

We are ruled by an arrogant and out of touch elite. The two party system is broken. The social contract is broken.

Our public sector is too often incompetent, wasteful and unaccountable. The Civil Service is no longer neutral. Many public institutions are pro-immigration, pro-remain and left-wing. Patronage around the House of Lords and honours system is leading to corruption in public life.

We have a constitutional crisis and our freedoms are at risk. Millions are taxed without proper representation. The British public must have a real, democratic choice on how our country is run.

 

Critical reforms needed in the first 100 days:

Pension and Social Care tick

Leave the European Convention on Human Rights.
Commence reform of the Human Rights Act.                                                                                                                                             

Pension and Social Care tick

Commence Reform of the House of Lords.
Replace the crony-filled House of Lords with a much smaller second chamber. Structure to be debated. Immediate end of political appointees.

Pension and Social Care tick

Commence Reform of the Civil Service.
Replace Civil Service leaders with private sector successful people, who are political appointees, who come and go with the government. Enforce the Civil Service code of integrity, honesty, objectivity and impartiality. Ensure better value for money with proper, competitive tendering.

Pension and Social Care tick

Commence Reform of the Postal Voting System.
Postal voting has allowed electoral fraud. We will stop postal voting except for the elderly, disabled or those who can’t leave their homes.

Thereafter:

Pension and Social Care tick

Proportional Representation Voting for the House of Commons.
First Past the Post is an outdated voting system. Large numbers of voters have no representation in parliament and new parties are shut out of the political system. Voter turnout would be some 10% higher with PR. A referendum is needed.

Pension and Social Care tick

A British Bill of Rights.
Our freedoms must be codified and guaranteed. Political freedom, personal freedom, economic freedom. Never again can our entire country be locked down on shoddy evidence and lies.
