Party funding

My new system - pay to vote.

At the polling station pay £2 to vote, which goes to the party you vote for. Ban donations. Simples.

Difference between parties?

Tories: Spend as little as they can get away with; tax accordingly

Labour: Tax as much as they can get away with; spend accordingly

Hello little blog o mine

I haven't been in here for a while. Distracted by my burgeoning Twitter addiction.

I loved the NAHT lady on the radio this morning. She wants to ban methadone, but not criminalise anybody caught with it. That's kinda what banning something entails. Let's not ban drugs and spend the police, courts, war in Afghanistan and prison money, plus some of the savings from reduced crime on helping people over come addiction, ensure clean supplies of drugs and equipment. Work on the root causes of why people want to take drugs - mostly because their life is shit. Do you think criminalising someone makes their life less shit - really?
