    Default What would you do if you were PM?

    Following on from all the high tax and fuel debates and general stuff about the government, I'm interested as to what things people would do if they were PM.

    I'd do the following:

    Re-introduce the 10p tax threshold
    Stop child benefit after the third child
    Buy back Gas, electric and water etc and make them non profit orgs..
    Scrap toll roads (once the company had made there outlay back)
    Cap immigration
    Stop paying child benefit for kids that don't even live in this country!
    Make working from home compulsory unless the job cannot be done from home
    Move freight of the roads where possible
    Improve public transport
    Build more schools (and make it that you have to go to your nearest one)

    Well, that just about empties my piggy bank...

    "NEXT..."

    I certanly would look at how I could get all the politicians to be more accountable and to improve their efficiancy, and reduce all the money that parlement waste. Well that would be a start anyway.

    Good point Ed, was going to put that but forgot half the things when I started writing it..

    I would stop MP's being able to claim expenses full stop.. it's not like they don't get paid enough to start with!

    Too many things to choose, but i would probably start with cutting tax on fuel, then reduce road tax, then give MP's a pay cut and stop them claiming expenses, the MP's expense's could probably balance out any deficit in revenue after cutting the tax and fuel duty.....

    Default

    Build more prisons;
    Get tougher on jail terms;
    Get rid of the Human Rights Act (or the parts that protect criminals);
    If someone wants to be an MP, they should automatically be barred;
    Every MP should spend a month a year working in low paid, labour intensive jobs so they don't forget their roots (and in that month live on a squalid council estate so they can see crime figures personally).

    I would add the following:

    1. Send the yobs to the Army after 2 offences that will get the numbers up quickly.
    2. Stop the immigrants flooding the country
    3. Enforce stiffer tets for those that can work, but won't work.
    4. Extend the time to hold terrorists till we check them out.
    5. Get more police employed onto the streets to regain our towns and villages etc.
    6. Increase the pensioners allowance and assistance with heating and free telly, etc etc.

    Thats it for now.
