Put drugs on the same footing as alchohol and sell them legally over the counter by chemists. No more drug gangs too !!

A 10% annual wealth tax on the second million plus and exemption on the primary home up to a million and grade 1,2 & 3 listed homes.

The super rich would be pegged back a bit but remain rich.

Did you know it is illegal in the UK for 2 or more women to live in the same house if they are prostitutes ?

We'll correct that and other absurdities.

Pensions big enough to live on. My pension went up a measly £2.24 last week for 2015 ?!

Podemos (Spanish: [poˈðemos], translated in English as "We can")[a] is a left-wing political party in Spain, founded in 2014 by Pablo Iglesias.

Iglesias was formerly a lecturer of Political Science at the Complutense University of Madrid and is currently a member of the European Parliament. In the 2014 European Parliament elections, Podemos received about 8% of the national vote, even though it was merely 4 months old at the time.

Podemos originated in the aftermath of the 2011–12 Spanish protests against inequality and corruption. It is a left-wing populist party that seeks to address the problems of inequality, unemployment and economic malaise that followed in the wake of the European debt crisis. Podemos has called for a renegotiation of austerity measures and seeks to curtail the Treaty of Lisbon.

Podemos is currently the 2nd largest Spanish party by number of members;[7] it became the 3rd largest party within the first 20 days it allowed membership, with 100,000 signing up in that period,[8] and currently has more than 300,000 members.

Review and change - Permitted Developments laws.

Establish new green belt building rules.
Introduce new simple flat law - build on 2% of owned land. This will ensure appealing and unique properties.

I would like to see small rise terraced flats of say 6 floors ( 1 flat on each floor ) + balcony/patios\sun conservatory tacked onto the south facing side/communal garden at ground level. Tenants association per block to adjust reasonable rents etc.
