A Non-Solution to the Wrong Problems

Introduction Before looking in detail at this Budget, it is worth reminding ourselves that the economy is the system we as a country have chosen to put in place to optimise the production and distribution of valuable goods and services for the benefit of our population. There is a wide array of choices open to […]

Beyond Extreme

Since 2012, Cameron, May, Johnson, Truss have all been at the helm of the Conservative Party. By the standards of the UK’s other major parties, of course, they are all very right-wing. But how far right are they by traditional Conservative standards? From the perspective of traditional Conservatism, this government is dangerously extreme: Johnson’s government […]

Have We Finally Had Enough?

Many people in the UK are extremely concerned about the future. Most are poorer today than they were in 2010, and this year is forecast to see the sharpest drop in living standards since records began. For over half of households, paying their energy bills this winter will be a major challenge – many will […]

What Was the Alternative?

Since 2010, the UK economy has been shaped by three critical government decisions: Austerity, Brexit and COVID. We have previously argued that the government mishandled all three (see Austerity, Brexit, COVID – an ABC of Economic Mismanagement).

Update on the Lords’ Amendments to the health & Care Bill

As part of its ongoing campaign against the Health and Care Bill, the LoveNHS Coalition welcomes the mitigating amendments passed in the House of Lords, and calls on MPs of all parties to ensure that the Bill does not pass without them. Mark E Thomas, coalition member and founder of The 99% Organisation said: “The […]

The Reality of Health Insurance

    In the UK, our healthcare is (largely) funded through the tax system and provided by the NHS. But Sajid Javid does not like that. He thinks, “government shouldn’t own all risks and responsibilities in life. We, as citizens, have to take some responsibility for our health too. We shouldn’t always go first to […]

Letter sent to 99% members

Dear Member, Johnson has made it clear that he will not go quietly. And even if his departure is now inevitable, he can still do an immense amount of damage before he leaves. So this week, we are asking you to make sure your MP knows your views on our Prime Minister. What Johnson can still […]
