The Baron’s Manifesto for the Welsh Assembly Election on Thursday 5th May 2016. We remain open to suggestions (click here)
Policy suggestions received 2015-16
All street lights to be replaced by disco lights
(thanks Barry Paul)
Anyone found causing an obstruction in the Gower lanes through fear of ‘hedging’ their new caravan will be dunked in custard
Build a bridge from Gower to Cornwall – share the neighbourly love
(Thanks Fred and Lloyd)
When elected we will give free ice cream to all pensioners during July and August
We will give triple nectar points on all income tax and national insurance payments
We will give all dog owners glittery poo bags in December which will look more festive when hanging in the trees
If you believe that Cardiff Bay is out of touch with the general public, you must vote Loony – you know it makes sense.
When elected, we will form a coalition with the “I want my bin emptied every week party”
Ban greyhound racing in Wales – this will stop the country going to the dogs’
It must be realised that the NHS is grossly underfunded and that people need to be prepared to pay up. Accommodation management needs to be outsourced to Premier Inn
Hospital catering to be outsourced to Domino Pizzas. They will be able to provide for vegetarian and non-vegetarian diets and will have a distinct advantage when barrier
nursing in that they can be slid under the door.
Baron Fullstop is a new national party member and is campaigning to stop politicians using the full stop, that way instead of lots of little ‘porkie pies ‘we get ‘one big one’.
The Westminster Parliament should be relocated to Wormwood Scrubs, reducing the commuting costs for most Peers and MPs – thanks to WolfBaginski
NO SUSTENANCE EXPENSES to be paid or tax relief granted to persons with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 or over.
ELECTION DATE: The date for the Assembly election is set for May, every four years. Loonies suggest it would be more suitable to change this date to 1st April every year.
GLOBAL WARMING – drivers could limit the effects of global warming by putting their air conditioning on full blast and driving round with the windows open. Thanks Michael
All assistance dogs in Wales to carry photo-ID – Thanks Breni
All old bicycles must be recycled – Thanks Beth
M4 to be straightened out thus saving fuel – Thanks Harry
Law and order policies
The Prison Service needs to be more financially efficient and find paying work for the prisoners so that they can make a contribution to society. If the unions require membership, so be it.
ASBOS to be abolished and young offenders to be super-glued together. If you can’t beat them join them.
PRISONERS to receive the minimum wage when carrying out work in the prisons. Previously the trade unions have fought this idea on the grounds that prisons would be a source of cheap labour thus providing unfair competition for work normally carried out by their members. In truth, a living wage would help prisoners to value their contribution to society and also provide means for them to pay the bed and breakfast charges we would be imposing.
Some subjects are beyond levity:
Swansea City Council’s proposal, to sell off school playing fields, ranks as more than loony. The physical and mental development of our children must not be impeded. Apart from the obvious benefits of fresh air and exercise, where are our successful young athletes of the future to come from?
Make sure your Community and County Councillors are aware of the fact that you will be taking into account their position on this issue when next given the opportunity to vote in local and national elections.
Help our farmers
Public Transport, especially in the rural areas, is another big issue which is obvious to those in the country but of no interest to those in the home counties.
All trains to Brussels to be fuelled by gravy.
All bendy buses to be straightened out.
Capital punishment to be re-introduced and applied to people parking their cars on pavements
Beeching gave everyone a cold with his transport cuts. The Baron wants to see Loughor Railway Station re-opened.
Remove all yellow parking lines and just have lines where you can park. (Saves loads of paint) – Thanks Mike
POTHOLES NOT TO BE REPAIRED BY LOCAL AUTHORITIES. This will slow traffic without the cost of installing speed humps.
(Some potholes are large enough to bath in.) Thanks Keith
LOCAL ISSUE – All traffic lights in Wales to be permanently green. [Especially Gorseinon High St.] Thanks ‘Angry Lady’
If students are to earn a living wage, then they must leave school with a certificated education that is relevant to industry.
SCHOOL CURRICULUM – Maths and French to be replaced by food hygiene certificate level 3. This will give young people a better chance of finding a job after leaving school. First aid certificates and theory of driving could be added.
help tourism & share the neighbourly love. Thanks to Fred and Lloyd
