I do not agree with increasing the Council tax but I do agree with a 50% and above income tax

Reason: Council Tax is regressive and unfairly hits poor working people relatively more than the wealthy

Plus high rate income tax (as in Scandinavia & France) is progressive and ensures the wealthy pay more of the their share

This results in more money for education (currently being privatised like the NHS by the Tories) & social services

Here is my mini manifesto for the Greens:

Take ownership of the railways and public utilities

Ban nuclear power & trident

Ban sales of weapons esp to repressive reactionary regimes like Saudi Arabia

no witch-hunt on immigrants and people (esp. those with disabilities) claiming their meagre benefits

Formation of a Left Green popular front to combat UKIP and the radical Right!

    Thanks for your comment. Much of what you say fits nicely with the Green Party national manifesto but isn’t something we can alter directly in Sheffield. Sheffield Green Party works to do what’s best at local level by looking at the choices open to us, even if they’re not perfect.
