Policies for all

How will a Reform UK government benefit you and your family & friends?

How will Reform UK benefit business and the local economy?

The first 100 days of a Reform government will be crucial for the UK

 

There is the alternative to high tax & low growth of both Labour and Conservative policies

Reform UK have great policies that would immediately have a positive effect on peoples' income. I have highlighted just some of our policies. At the time of writing, the complete list of policies is nearing completion and are due to be published soon. So below, are just a sample.

John Edwards

Raising the tax threshold to £20,000 would immediately help those in low-paid employment. 

Reform UK will make work pay and be worthwhile through helping you keep more of the money you earn.

Businesses are struggling with the high costs that have to be paid to enable them to continue trading. 

Lowering corporation tax from the record high 25% down to 20%, then to 15% from year 5, would help attract foreign investment and manufacturing back to the UK.   We would also free 1.2 million small and medium sized businesses from corporation tax.

Abolish IR35 rules to support sole traders. The self employed often work longer hours and take more risks. Many have no pension and recieve no sick pay.

Lift the VAT threshold to £120,000 to free up entrepreneurs from red tape and bureaucracy. 

Reducing VAT on energy bills and reducing fuel duty would lower inflation, thereby benefiting both consumers and businesses.

Lower interest rates. The current interest rate is crippling and for some companies, will mean the end of the road if something is not done soon. What were affordable loans, are now not affordable. High interest rates mean that it is difficult or impossible for companies to finance growth, pursue lucrative contracts or expand the workforce.

Future employment prospects would be more certain, unlike now.  These policies will help to contribute to, and stimulate growth and help make the country prosperous. If business is healthy, then communities will benefit through employment opportunities that will benefit Southampton households along with the rest of the country.

The UK needs a workable immigration system such as other modern countries operate to enable us to choose those that would make a contribution to our nation.  Having valid health insurance and employment skills to enter the UK would be just two requirements. I am fully behind our party's stance over illegal migration and the plan to stop the boats and take the occupants of those boats, back to France. I am against giving illegal migrants being given work. This will encourage more to come to the UK and fill a pool of cheap labour.  The Conservatives won't stop the boats.  Labour has agreed to fly in migrants from the EU. The govt have now announced that flights to Rwanda have been scrapped because of the general election. Those destined to fly out have all been bailed.

Reform UK will reinstate border controls, freeze immigration and stop the boats and send back the occupants and those already here who are not legible, will be deported. 

 

I support reducing foreign aid and redirecting that money to help rebuild public services that have been decimated through the Tories underfunding. It's wrong to give taxpayers money away to nations that have space programs, nuclear arms and poor human rights records.

My personal view is to offer materials and expertise instead of cash, to needy nations. This would cut out the misappropriation (corruption) of aid money and give British companies an opportunity to supply those countries who actually deserve our help.

Reforming the NHS means redistributing NHS finances to enable the training and retaining of doctors.  Doing away with those wasteful management posts listed as diversity and equality officers would leave more cash for patient care.  Reform sees everyone as one people in one nation, regardless of ethnicity, colour, or religion.  Abolishing degree entry for nurses would attract more people into the profession.

Reform UK will exempt nurses from paying income tax for three years. Doctors and nurses who commit to the NHS for 10 years will have their tuition fees annulled.

Care workers too, will be exempt from paying income tax for three years.

Our country needs an affordable integrated transport system if we are to reduce congestion on our roads. 

Petrol and diesel vehicles should be retained until viable alternatives (hydrogen) are ready.

Energy. Once we were self sufficient in energy, thanks to the North Sea oil and gas fields that are now being vacated and ignored by exploration companies, due to the costly and unfavourable conditions that the Conservative government has imposed in the cause of 'net zero'.

Reform UK will exploit our nation's natural resources to lower the cost of expensive imported energy. We would accelerate the program of nuclear power until such time, when using our natural resources need not be an option.

Defence. Consecutive Tory governments have reduced our armed forces to a dangerous level, unable to respond to overseas threats. We will offer employment to veterans with the emergency services and border control. Our police forces were once a natural  destination for veterans who know all about discipline and leadership that is sorely lacking from todays police forces.

Sunak's plan to introduce national service with either the army or voluntary services is unworkable, at only one weekend per month.

Reform UK is committed to rebuilding our armed forces. We would take recruitment away from private companies and use serving or recently retired veterans. Vets would also be offered free higher education to kick start their civilian lives.

 

                                Britain needs Reform UK to make Britain a great place to live and work in again.

Note: Not all of our policies have been released yet. As we get nearer to the time of the general election, you can expect to see more policies and ideas that make will Britain a great place to live and work. In the meantime, you can see the whole draft publication, via the 'More Policies' button below.
