@dtf - you hit the nail on the head!
I, too, would like my own personal political party. But it wouldn't be based on ideology of left or right. I would like:
1. Economically right of centre. Where the private sector works well, it works very well and should be encouraged to get on with it.
2. Excellent regulation in sectors where market-based economics leads (or could lead) to excess e.g. banking, food safety, standard setting, etc.
3. A progressive taxation system that generates sufficient revenue without clobbering initiative and endeavour.
4. User pays principle applied to most resources (water, waste, energy) with externalities included in the pricing (carbon, waste, tobacco, alcohol, etc.)
5. Redistributive and welfare that actually works. As it is, some who don't need help receive it while some who desperately need it do not. That is shameful on both counts.
6. State involvement only in those areas which would otherwise not work effectively - national grid, gas distribution, railway lines and roads, education, health (probably), regulation
7. Liberal in everything else - if it is not specifically involved, it's none of the state's business (our bedrooms, back gardens, etc.).
Anyone with me?
