We are against the monarchy and for a republic. We are for the abolition of the House of Lords, and for votes at 16.
The royal family’s enormous wealth, land and palaces should be put to social use. The same applies to the aristocracy and their mansions.
The Church of England must be dis-established, its privileges ended and its wealth confiscated.
The first-past-the-post single constituency system must be replaced with proportional representation. We support the right of prisoners to vote.
We would replace the current practice of always voting on a Thursday with voting on weekends.
We would research into the possibility of electronic voting. Clearly, if this is implemented we would need to be sure that the votes were protected from the possibility of fraud and guaranteed to be secure and secret.
Local democracy should be restored, with powers returned to councils and democratic control of schools, hospitals and housing.
