It’s time the Liberal Democrats got some backbone. Basic Income is the perfect place to start.

To begin with, the starts in life must be reasonably fair; secondly, the fabric of society must be maintained; thirdly, a reasonable life must be guaranteed to all

Every step we take towards a Basic Income will liberate power in the hands of the citizen

Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear.

Every citizen will receive either a tax cut or they will get a fixed net sum when they don’t have enough money.

Let everyone be free. Let no one fall.
