National statements

  • Many people think taxes will have to rise in the next parliament to cut Britain's budget deficit. If they do, any increases should disproportionately be paid by higher earners.

    agree neutral disagree strongly
    disagree
    Daniel Lambert (Socialist Party of Great Britain)
    is neutral
    “Taxation is a capitalist problem. I stand for socialism, a world of common ownership, democratic control, production solely for use not sale or profit, and distribution on the principle "from each their ability, to each their needs".”
    Jeremy Drinkall (Anticapitalists - Workers Power)
    strongly agrees
    “£1 trillion of our money was spent on the banks by the Labour government. It's time to take over the banks and take our money back too.”
    James Kapetanos (The Animal Protection Party)
    is neutral
    “Opinion not policy; if we are still taxing people to pay banks driven by personal wealth creation then we aren't going to solve the underlying problem.”
    Kate Hoey (Labour Party)
    agrees
    Caroline Pidgeon (Liberal Democrats)
    is neutral
    “Our tax proposals include the biggest tax switch in generations, a radical overhaul to make sure those at the top pay their fair share in order to put money back in the pockets of people who need it.”

    “The relationship between capitalist government and capitalist business is a capitalist problem that does not concern wage and salary workers and their dependants.”
    Jeremy Drinkall (Anticapitalists - Workers Power)
    strongly disagrees
    “We are in favour of socialist planning: a workers state will control the economy. Under capitalism we are in favour of intervention where it helps the workers, eg the banks should have been nationalised under workers' and communities' control.”
    James Kapetanos (The Animal Protection Party)
    is neutral
    “Opinion not policy; if the government reflected a balance between big business interests and answered to relevant social responsiblities to future generations and not a misinformed electorate every five years then this question might be plausible.”
    Kate Hoey (Labour Party)
    strongly agrees
    Caroline Pidgeon (Liberal Democrats)
    agrees
    “The role of government is to create an environment that allows enterprise to flourish, acting as an enabler rather than a participant in its own right. That means establishing a stable tax platform, creating a proportionate regulatory regime.”
    Joseph Healy (Green Party)
    strongly disagrees

    disagree
    Daniel Lambert (Socialist Party of Great Britain)
    is neutral
    “Why should workers be forced to pay more for something? Climate change will never be tackled properly under capitalism as there are too many vested interests. Look what happened at Copenhagen. Only socialism provides the framework for tackling this.”
    Jeremy Drinkall (Anticapitalists - Workers Power)
    strongly disagrees
    “Governments should tackle climate change but at the expense of the multinationals and polluters not the mass of the population. Cheap energy for all”

    Caroline Pidgeon (Liberal Democrats)
    agrees
    “But not for the poorest; Liberal Democrats are committed to fair fuel bills. At the moment energy companies charge you less for your energy the more you use. That’s unfair and environmentally crazy.”
    Joseph Healy (Green Party)
    strongly agrees

    agree
    agree neutral disagree strongly
    disagree
    Daniel Lambert (Socialist Party of Great Britain)
    agrees
    “It's a big problem already that we are living in an unequal society but that's the nature of capitalism. It's based on inequality of ownership of means of production.This can't be changed as the failure of the Labour government since 1997 to do shows”
    Jeremy Drinkall (Anticapitalists - Workers Power)
    strongly agrees
    “It already is very unequal and will become more so if the bosses succeed in making the workers pay for the crisis. Only a socialist revolution will overcome national and global inequality.”

    Kate Hoey (Labour Party)
    agrees
    Caroline Pidgeon (Liberal Democrats)

    “At the root of Britain's problems today is the failure to distribute economic and political power fairly between people. At present, the poorest 20% of people lose more of their income in tax than they did in 1997, while the richest 20% pay less.”
    Joseph Healy (Green Party)
    strongly agrees

    Jeremy Drinkall (Anticapitalists - Workers Power)
    strongly agrees
    “The three main parties want to use the recession to slash spending on public services and shift the money to the rich. The Anticapitalists say tax the rich and the multinationals to pay for our services.”
    James Kapetanos (The Animal Protection Party)
    is neutral
    “Opinion not policy; My starting point would be local first so deciding for Britain is a bit of a stretch. I'm not sure if I agree with a single government for Britain when there are devolved governments but not for england.”
    Kate Hoey (Labour Party)
    is neutral
    “On some public secotr serives but not on public service mnagement and bureaucracy and quangos- too high salaries for Directors and Chief Executive in Local authorities.”
    Caroline Pidgeon (Liberal Democrats)
    disagrees
    “The current economic climate will require a degree of restraint in public sector spending as we work to bring down the deficit.”
    Joseph Healy (Green Party)

    Jeremy Drinkall (Anticapitalists - Workers Power)
    strongly disagrees
    “We are for decent pensions funded by taxing the bosses. The bosses have destroyed final salary pensions in order to pay the shareholders. No pensions to be gambled on the stock market.”

    Kate Hoey (Labour Party)
    is neutral
    Caroline Pidgeon (Liberal Democrats)
    disagrees
    “Britain’s pensions system is one of the most complex and inadequate in the developed world. It provides neither a decent safety net, nor incentives to save. To tackle this, we will restore the link between pensions and earnings immediately.”

    Jeremy Drinkall (Anticapitalists - Workers Power)
    strongly disagrees

    Kate Hoey (Labour Party)

    Kate Hoey (Labour Party)
    is neutral
    Caroline Pidgeon (Liberal Democrats)
    is neutral
    “The expenses scandal has undermined public confidence in politicians. That is why the Liberal Democrats would introduce a ‘recall’ system in which a small percentage of constituents could force a by-election for any MP found to be corrupt.”

    Caroline Pidgeon (Liberal Democrats)
    strongly disagrees
    “The EU has evolved significantly since the last public vote on membership over thirty years ago. Liberal Democrats therefore believe that there should be an in/out referendum the next time a British Government signs up for fundamental change.”
