The Alternative Manifesto

The UK is in a rotten state –  a ruined economy, crumbling services, a bloated bureaucracy, bullying officials, absurd regulations, and politicians who use power to benefit themselves, not the public. But what can be done about it?

The Alternative Manifesto outlines a twelve-step programme to wean politicians off their addition to high spending, debt – and power. With interviews from the heads of the leading policy think-tanks, it shows why we need to cut government spending far and fast, how Parliament can be rebuilt as the defender of the public’s rights, why power must be devolved to local communities and individuals, how to curb the quangocracy, why we need to simplify taxes and stop taxing low earners entirely and, how to introduce choice and competition into public services.
