Notice of Motion by John Booker Feb 2017

(a) states the working poor and their families are under attack, and are loosing the battle. Wages have fallen for the poorest due to benefit changes and wage compression.

These issues and related problems are a direct result of “Austerity” policies perpetrated by current and previous governments. The poorest in society are bearing the majority of the cuts, and the government is shifting its debt onto them, creating more hardship and reducing state services to the most needy.

(b) further states at the same time the government is creating an additional £60bn of Quantitative Easing to spend in the financial markets.

This makes a total Quantitative Easing package so far to be deployed of £435bn.

Imagine what good could have been made of this kind of financial clout for the benefit of society as a whole.

(c) notes under the current government this theme of the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer will continue, it is a disgrace that this situation has been allowed to proceed as far has it has.

(d) asks where is the opposition? Where is the alternative economic policy?

(e) condemns the system of planned corporate control, known as “Globalisation” which was created by stealth and deception, a system that benefits the financial interest of the City of London at the expense of the rest of us.

(f) believes we need Quantitative Easing for the people, investing in the real economy, help finance small businesses who still find it difficult to secure funding.

Make it easier for small and medium-sized businesses with  250 employees or less to tender for public sector contracts.

(g) also believes this money could allow young people to start an apprenticeship in place of four non-core subjects at GCSE level. Abolish tuition fees for those studying science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine.

(h) further believes a policy of re-nationalising our Railways, Transport System,  Utilities and services would benefit, in the future, society as a whole.

(i) places on record at this moment we have a system of Socialism for the Bankers and Capitalism for the Workers.
