Making Tax Evasion and Tax Avoidance illegal:
For too long, people have been reducing their tax bill by claiming for dodgy rain forests and even dodgier movies. This idea could raise an extra 20 billion a year and help plug the gap in the public finances

National Conscription to be served in the military or supporting the care sector, which also has massive recruitment problems.

I support another referendum on the deal.
