The Penguin Manifesto




Here's a brief outline of the sort of manifesto that The Ranting Penguin would stand on.

1. Leave the EUSSR
2. Dismantle ALL quangos.
3. Cut number of MPs and Lords to 400 each house. Total transparency, no "allowances". No second jobs or "outside interests". All ministers barred from employment of any sort for 5 years after stepping down / being sacked and getting basic state pension during this period.
4. Scrap the BBC Licence Fee completely.
5. Simplify the tax system drastically.
6. Life sentences would be just that. All sentences to be served in full.
7. Householders specifically allowed to use any degree of violence agianst intruders.
8. Drop ID cards and the NHS database and similar big brother IT schemes.
9. Scrap speed cameras.
10. Bring back selective education by ability, and the cane. Scrap all SATs and league tables.
11. Repeal the Dunblane gun ownership laws.
12. Net immigration to be capped at ZERO with USA style green-card system for specific bona fide jobs.
13. No bail for any previously convicted criminals, or for any serious offence.
14. Zero tolerance policing with regard to anti-social behaviour.
15. Deport ALL illegals and failed asylum seekers - only ONE appeal and at own expense over asylum.
16. Rip out 60% of the managers and admin staff from the NHS, give control back to the doctors.
17. Have the "economically inactive" work for their benefits on community projects such as litter-picking.
18. Make prison both an effective deterrent and an opportunity to reform.
19. Drop the Human Rights nonsense.
20. Huge bonfire of red tape and Health and Safety bollocks.

Just a start.

17. Have the "economically inactive" work for their benefits on community projects such as litter-picking.

No benefits...

What about legalizing drugs?....

Joe Public said...

"5..........All ministers barred from employment of any sort for 5 years "

I don't think that'll encourage many to apply.

Joe Public said...

How about adding "Scrapping all public-funded interpreters & translation services"?

The Penguin said...

5. Joe, it would certainly make politics less attractive to the likes of Byers. And Bliar.

The Penguin said...

Stan,

Publish your own manifesto, you idle little man.

Captain Ranty said...

Eerily similar to mine.

Great minds fink alike.

I'd vote for you. No question.

CR.

Dont do guvmint,ergo, dont do manifesto`s.

Fox hunting is way down my list of priorities - seems to me the current situation is that the hunt do their thing regardless and because the law is so crap they get away with breaking it. I'd repeal it or replace it with a workable law after research and consultation but only after sorting out more important issues.

Repeal the Smoking Ban

Id let the people who live and work in the countryside deal with it.

Resaearch and consultations,state interference ,quango`s and red-tape more like....

The Penguin said...

"Dont do guvmint,ergo, dont do manifesto`s."

So mind your own fucking business then.

Ed P said...

Points 2 - 19 mostly require Point 1 first, with "The Plan" suggesting the best way to achieve separation from Bruxelles.

What about scrapping the Trident replacement to save even more dosh?

I am Stan said...

So mind your own fucking business then.


Yo! Penguin

-I`m forced to pay their taxes and obey their laws so it is my business.

If they stayed out of my affairs I`d stay out of theirs.

Youve put up a manifesto for public comment,something you would enforce on me if you had the power to do so,so there`s two reasons why I`m making it my business...ok!...

Or withdraw your manifesto!.

"Scrapping all public-funded interpreters & translation services"? What about Braille? I think you are being very unfair to deaf people as its not their fault.

Uncle Marvo said...

Yep. My votes split between you, Ranty and Stan.

Or Gene Hunt.

Fire up the quattro, and pass the ammunition.

Thanks, Pingu. Made my day.
