Lets face it, there is no point in making New Year resolutions, none of them are kept beyond the 4th of January. So instead, this year, I present you with a list of things which I think will make the UK a better place. With the elections coming up this year, any party that adopts at least some of them will of course, secure my vote. Here are some of my ideas for a more authoritarian, yet pleasant state. In no particular order:
- Rid the BBC of all celebrities and their salaries, thus saving money which can either be used to reduce the license fee or to produce quality programming. I personally don’t care whether I am watching a so called celebrity or a no body. What I want is good television. Let all the gold diggers go to the ITV.
- Enforce a licensing system for all dog ownership. Dogs should not be allowed off the lead in public places and fines should be enforced. Dogs can be off the lead in designated areas and on private land.
- Fit all vehicles with a device that masks mobile phone signals. This will prevent them being used whilst driving.
- A serious cut in hospital administration, there are just far too many different departments for individual letter writing and waiting lists.
- Revolutionise the management structure of Local Government. From examples I have seen or read about there are far too many Chiefs and not enough Indians to provide a quality service.
- Limit air travel for a year to essential travel. This will help the environment, the UK tourist industry and streamline the whole business. Loss of jobs in the air industry will be counter-balanced by an increase of those in the UK tourist industry. This may also highlight the fabulous holiday opportunities available in the UK.
- Get rid of the school examination system, whereby the under tens are put under pressure to perform well in exams rather than concentrate on actually learning valuable skills.
Suffice to say there are plenty more where that lot came from, if you are a member of a political party and want to hear more then feel free to contact me!
