Welcome to the Populist Party (also known as the Populist Alliance)

What We Stand For:

The Populists want the United Kingdom to trade and have good relations with our friends and neighbours in Europe, as indeed with the rest of the world, but we do not want to be governed from Brussels. We want to be a free, independent, sovereign country that is governed by our people in our own Parliament in Westminster. Therefore we aim to end Britain’s membership of the European Union. A Populist government will protect British industry with protectionist measures where necessary and engage in free trade agreements only when the national interest is served.

  • Immigration. We cannot allow more immigration while we have millions of UK born workers unemployed.
  • Investment and Employment. Bring back credit and exchange controls, clampdown on the speculators and use the money gained to get our people off the dole and back into work through creating a National Investment Bank to revive British manufacturing.
  • Pubs. Defend the pubs and working men’s clubs- abolish duty on alcohol bought in pubs and transfer the tax burden onto alcohol bought in supermarkets and off licences so pub closures are reversed and more pubs open and prosper.
  • Shops. Defend the traditional High Street from standardisation. Help the smallest businesses by taking them out of corporation tax and abolishing the Unified Business Rate. Transfer the tax burden onto the multinational and the supermarkets. Support local traders, through an online purchase tax.
  • Health/Pensioners. All health care (including prescriptions, optical and dental tests) should be free at the point of use. We oppose privatising the NHS and the scrapping of free bus passes for pensioners.
  • Housing. Rent controls to prevent greedy landlords fleecing tenants; action to eradicate residential leasehold and replace it with commonhold agreements. Scrap the "Bedroom Tax".
  • Crime. Tough law and order policy - life sentences to mean life, no more open prisons, no early release or parole for prisoners.
  • Education. Scrap student loans for university courses that are the most likely to be of use to society (to provide us with doctors, scientists etc) and restore grants for them
  • Welfare. A fair Basic Income scheme of welfare that will erase poverty, promote working and deter fraudsters.
  • Rural Economy. Restoration of the UK Fishing zone and subsidies for farmers.
  • Tax. Replace VAT with import tax to give British made goods cost advantage over foreign ones. Buy British.
  • Justice. Withdraw from the European Courts and bring in our own Bill of Rights. Deport Hate Preachers. Scrap “politically correct” laws.
  • Infrastructure. Bring water, gas, electricity, coal and British Rail back into public ownership
  • Neutrality - withdraw from NATO and become a non-aligned nation. No more of our soldiers to die due to American foreign policy…
  • Democracy. Become a Direct Democracy like Switzerland with Referenda chosen by the people, not the politicians. Power to the people not the corporations and bankers.
  • Politicians will be prohibited from having second jobs and political parties will have to be funded by their members, not businesses or unions. Phase out corruption….
  • Freedom. Restoration of personal and political freedom, moderation and commonsense.
  • Transport. No to extra airport expansions and unpopular high-speed rail planning blight. Expand light rail systems to improve travel networks to areas with currently public transport links
  • Heritage. Defend the green belt and listed buildings from developers.

Anti-Globalism

The Populist Party does not have a policy on individual nations or races, but it does oppose world government, power bloc politics and international treaties. We are anti-globalist and part of our anti-globalism is a policy of non-interference in other nation's affairs, opposition to interference in our policy making. We believe in localism - the small scale economy and decentralised society as envisaged by EF Schumacher, GK Chesterton and John Papworth. This is the direct opposite of internationalism and multinationalism, which is run by a remote global elite who are increasingly unnaccountable and powerful. A return to small nations, small governments, small farms and shops, and support for the "small man" against the big forces is what we strive for.

20 Ideas
20 Ideas to implement in a post-EU economy.......

1. Make businesses that import and employ overseas labour rather than homegrown workers responsible for their education, healthcare, their housing costs and their visas, not the taxpayer.

2. Bring back credit and exchange controls, clampdown on the speculators and use the money gained to get our people off the dole and back into work through creating a National Investment Bank to revive British manufacturing.

3. Scrap student loans for university courses that are the most likely to be of use to society (to provide us with doctors, scientists etc) and restore grants for them

4. Replace VAT with import tax to give British made goods cost advantage over foreign ones. Buy British.

5. Bring water, gas, electricity, coal and British Rail back into public ownership

6. Help for all small enterprises that employ fewer than 10 employees by removing them from Corporation tax altogether.

7. Return to a non-profit making Milk Marketing Board, or an arrangement with dairies whereby farmers can agree an annual fixed price for all the milk they can produce. Any surplus production, would go into the manufacture of butter and cheese products, thereby reducing our need to import foreign products.

8. Tax all stock exchange transactions (the Tobin Tax)

9. Tax currency transfer heavily so that the money people make in the UK is spent in the UK. Not transferred overseas to be spent abroad....

10. Support the control of mortgage lending to ensure that the amount lent is not beyond the capability of the borrower to repay.

11. Implement rent controls to fix rents at a figure that is affordable for the private tenant and small shopkeeper.

12. Oppose the “Bedroom Tax” which will see people in social housing with one spare bedroom will have their housing benefit cut by 14%, while those with two or more unoccupied rooms will see it slashed by 25%.

13. No more sales of council houses at a knock down price to be allowed

14. A ban on further conversion of older properties (pre-war) into multi-occupancy so that areas retain their charm and character and greedy property speculators no longer profit from cramming as many people into small conversion flats as possible.

15. Advertising overseas to fill employment vacancies to be made illegal, as will advertising in any language other than English, so that everyone has a fair chance to apply...

16. Oppose further privatisation of state assets such as London Underground, Royal Mail etc..

17. Defend the pubs and working men’s clubs- abolish duty on alcohol bought in pubs and transfer the tax burden onto alcohol bought in supermarkets and off licences so pub closures are reversed and more pubs open and prosper.

18. Introduce a Basic Income, and maintain the National Mimimum Wage, with a view to making it a "living wage" through the Basic Income provision..

19. A ban upon zero hour contracts

20. Become a Direct Democracy like Switzerland with Referenda chosen by the people, not the politicians. Power to the people not the corporations and bankers.
