Yep, still looking for a job

Tomorrow is Queen’s Speech day. No government that might have been elected would have presented the programme I would wish for. These would have been my priority bills:

To create an Office for Tax Responsibility

Heh.

And marvel at the logic here:

Replacing the Lord’s with an elected Senate. This would begin the process of real change in the way we a are governed. This ought to have happened in the aftermath of the mp’s claims scandal.

Elected politicians are thieving scumso, err, let’s have more elected politicians!

  1. And I like how is self professed expertise in tax and economics has now expanded to, well, everything.

  2. Rather than have an elected senate why not have one picked by lottery, we could pay them what they were earning beforehand* plus 30% plus one years redundancy at the end of the 5 years.
    It would of course exclude any tax evaders as they would not want to apply.
    (To get students to serve this could be the average salary for their profession).

  3. David, I was a war studies student. What is the average salary for a war studies profession? Wife did animal management degree – what is the average salary in the animal management profession?

  4. @”David, I was a war studies student. What is the average salary for a war studies profession? Wife did animal management degree – what is the average salary in the animal management profession?”
    Not sure, it wasn’t a fully costed and detailed proposal, just the beginning of an idea.
    (We could do it by the average salary of a graduate of that uni or just limit to people over the age of 30).

  5. “An Education Reform Act….

    Require mandatory education in basic economics, taxation, budgeting, debt, credit and banking”

    Hopefully it will be retrospective and he will learn a thing or two…..

  6. Why would you want to have students as senators? By definition, they lack experince.
    (Like most MPs 🙂 )

  7. I have proposals for replacing the House of Lords

    1) Select 500 prisoners at random from HM Prisons.
    2) Select the 500 closest illegitimate descendants of Charles II, over the age of 21.

    Of course, you could combine 1 & 2

  8. It’s a sad day when I’m feeling sorry for the man – 5 years of complete irrelevance ahead – and we’re only a month in!!
