Direct Democracy proposal for Economics

Income Tax

The People's Administration believes that the people are more concerned about getting value for money and having a stable economy, than they are about the actual tax rate itself, provided that the rate is reasonable.

On this basis, Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to review the tax banding system and its thresholds altogether. We propose that the threshold for the higher tax band should be raised with an increase in tax levy added to this band, with a reduction in Income tax for the lower band.

100 years ago, none of the taxes listed below existed, yet the UK prospered. There was no national debt and the English middle class was the largest in the world:

Stamp Duty
Tobacco Duty
Alcohol Duty
Petrol/Diesel Duty
Corporate Income Tax
Income Tax
Council Tax
Employment Tax
Fishing License Tax
Inheritance Tax
Value-added Tax
Marriage License Tax
Property Tax
Service Charge taxes
Social Security Tax
Vehicle License Registration Tax
Vehicle Sales Tax
Workers Compensation Tax

The People's Administration further propose to consult heavily with the IFS regarding all aspects of the UK tax system.

Voting for direct democracy outside a general election

Direct Democracy - Audio

It is up to us, the people [not the politicians] to use the power that we have always had, to choose to implement direct democracy as soon as possible.

This is not a protest campaign.

In accordance with Magna Carta Article 61 and with UN UDHR Article 21 and with all of the democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK has signed-up to], the people already have the lawful right to reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.
