Opinion image
This page is dedicated to providing opinions on various topics from the perspective of Reform UK. We are the party of common sense. Not right nor left, but practical policies for the people. Policies that put the people first. We believe that a government should serve society and not, society serving the government. 

Finance, Food, and Fuel

Three F's image
There are three further F's that are really relevant right now. These are Finance, Food, and Fuel. As we tumble from crisis to crisis, people of the UK are feeling the added pressure which each crisis carries. Can I afford to pay the bills? Can I put food on the table? Dare I turn on the heating as it turns colder? In 2022, should we be asking these questions? What has gone wrong? What can be done about it? Is there a way forward to a brighter future? Can we Reform the UK?

You probably have noticed that the price of everything is going up each month. Russia is holding us accountable for the sanctions we put in place because of Ukraine. Russia controls our fuel and, indirectly our food. We are in this mess because we handed control of our commodities to others overseas. We, in the UK,  should be independent, not reliant on others for everyday necessities. Control of fuel and food should be with the UK. Only then, will finance be firewalled against foreign fiddling.   Reform UK will give the control of our destiny back to the citizens of the United Kingdom. We can be truly independent and financially secure.

With inflation set to hit 22% in 2023, and the pound sinking to an all time low against the dollar, the UK needs a government committed to reducing the cost of living and protecting its citizens. Reform UK has a sound fiscal policy to tackle this issue. People of the UK are worried. How to meet the costs of ever increasing prices. It is no joke when you're already struggling to make ends meet. Energy costs are growing higher and higher. We punished Russia and now Russia is punishing us. We need to be able to stand on our own two feet, independent from reliance upon other countries. We have to put the Great back in Britain. Make us great again. Yes, we should be friends with other nations but, not reliant on them. Can we make it on our own financially? Of course we can! We once ruled the world, we can be great again. Let's fly the flag. Buy British, Think British, Work British.

Reform UK pledge to:

• reduce taxation for all;
• raise the threshold to £20,000 taking thousands out of taxable income;
• cut VAT on energy bills;
• reduce VAT;
• reduce energy levies;
• scrap Net Zero (that is pushing up prices);
• unleash the treasure in gas and oil under our seas and our earth;
• make us energy independent;
• put the GREAT back in Britain. 
Read Reform UK's economic policy for yourself here. This Emergency Recovery Plan "How to grow our way out of crisis" details the steps we would be taking to put the UK back on a strong economic footing.


• Growth Crisis – lowest decade for 70 years;

• Tax Crisis – highest for over 70 years;

• Inflation Crisis – highest level for over 30 years;

• Productivity Crisis – public sector worst level for over 20 years;

• 5.3 million on out of work benefits, 12% of working age population.

Reform UK would: create a £74 billion stimulus by:

• Cutting tax – zero income tax below £20k a year
  and save almost £1,500 per year per person;
• Cutting cost of living by reducing other taxes;
• Scrapping VAT on energy bills to save £100 per year per household;
• Scrapping environmental levies to save £160 year per household;
• Reducing fuel duty by 20p per litre, saving £240 per year per driver;
• Cutting wasteful Govt spending – saving £5 in £100 = £55 billion per year;
• Reducing VAT from 20% to 18% - saving £300 per year per household;
• Unlocking Shale Gas Treasure: more than £1 trillion of levelling up, by drilling down.

This will cut your energy bills. 


• Stimulate Growth - approx 0.5% higher per year;
• Reduce Inflation - approximately 4% over next 12 months;
• Encourage work - extra personal incentive to earn;
• Stimulus of £74bn, or 3.3% GDP; takes tax, as %age of GDP, back to pre lockdown levels
• Many households saving £5 in £100 (5%). Public sector saving 5% = £55bn per year (£25 bn in year 1, rising to £55bn year 2). Huge opportunities to cut waste & keep service levels;
• £18bn from increased borrowing in year 2 (0.8% GDP) after £46bn extra in year 1;
• Self funding, on 3 year view, and accretive thereafter, as our measures will grow economy
faster (0.5% pa). Increases tax revenues medium term &reduces inflation due to lower prices;
• Unlock our huge hidden Asset Value in Shale Gas Treasure: £1 trillion + under our feet.
  This is equivalent to over £30,000 per household;
• Owned by us all – transforms our national finances.
"Man shall not live by bread alone" according to Jesus (Matthew 4:4). However, mankind cannot live at all without food. I lost 6 stone after my stroke because I was unable to eat properly. I have been able to put some weight back but, I can no longer afford to be a vegan. The vegan equivalent of one of the foods that I can eat is six times the cost of the vegetarian option! I've been vegan for 21 years. Now, because of spiralling costs, I have been forced to be vegetarian.

It wasn't that many years ago when the average UK citizen could go to a supermarket and not worry about empty shelves or the price of goods being beyond our means. Inflation could reach 22% in 2023, far exceeding any rise in pay. The average UK citizen is going to feel that rise in the cost of living. Something has to be done. Only Reform UK has the policy to address this. Give us your vote and we will give you back control over your lives.
The Reform UK Energy Policy document can be read here.

The current Global Energy War could continue for years:

▪ Centre of crisis is Western Europe and many nations are in a desperate scrabble for energy. Like the PPE crisis during the pandemic.
▪ UK Energy market is not fit for purpose.

There has been decade & of failure by politicians and others.

REFORM UK's solution could help to put an end to this national crisis and stop:

▪ 1,000s of the elderly & vulnerable dying this winter of cold & hunger;
▪ millions defaulting on energy bills;
▪ 100,000 + small firms going bust;
▪ 500,000 + jobs being lost;
▪ further inflation & so reduce pressure to raise interest rates too far;
▪ the supply crisis over medium term.

In a warlike situation, the Government must declare that a Force Majeure exists in the failed UK energy market. In an energy war the Government must take control of the UK's energy production pricing. Only by this measure can we gain control of thesituation. Desperate dvelopments require definitive directives.

There has been an increasing reliance on imported electricity (up 400% from 2010 to 2021). There has also been an increasing reliance on imported gas (up 25% since 2014), much of it by Liquified Natural Gas in specialist ships. This, when combined with lower UK gas production (down 43% since 2010), was a recipe for a national disaster. The UK's nuclear & fossil fuel generating capacity has been decreasing (down over 30%) since 2010. Power stations have been closed with no replacements. Taken with the risk of France being unable to supply the UK due to their own reduced capacity (as nuclear power stations shutting with maintenance issues), and the risk of Norway also being unable to supply the UK with electricity due to its own shortages, further escalation of the issue would seem probable. A very scary thought.

Reform UK would declare a FORCE MAJEURE situation. This warlike situation requires a wartime response. The UK's energy market is no longer fit for purpose. In an energy war the Government must take control of energy production pricing. UK energy producers would be obliged to sell to UK suppliers at the 2021 average price or be nationalised. The domestic cap would be returned to circa £1,750 per year, and the business cap to circa 35 pence per kwh. Extra help would still required for the most vulnerable. Such measures would exists until normal market conditions return.

Further, Reform UK would:
• establish a regime to accelerate new gas and nuclear supplies;
▪ unlock Shale Gas Treasure. Providing £1 trillion plus of levelling up, by drilling down;
▪ accelerate gas & oil exploration in North Sea;
▪ build High Efficiency Combined Cycle Gas Turbines;
▪ improve the creation of the latest Small Modular nuclear reactors;
▪ ensure that there was no more subsidized renewables. These are unreliable & expensive;
• scrap the windfall tax to motivate extra investment in new gas & nuclear supplies.

The timeframe to be energy self reliant will realistically take several years. Improvements will start after a period of (minimum) 3 years and, a total resolution would take 7- 10 years. However, we have a strategy and it would not just resolve the present crisis but, make the UK energy independent for the foreseeable future.
Winter Warmth imageWinter Warmth image
As I write this, it's that time of year again, when Jack Frost starts nipping at noses. There's nothing like some fresh white powder to create a nice Winter Wonderland. During the colder seasons and less daylight many people suffer from a condition labeled seasonal affective disorder (SAD). People will often feel like they have less energy, thier sleeping patterns will change, they will become sad, emotional or will  feel 'down' . Due to less daylight and sunshine the brain produces different chemicals  which can pledge people into winter depression. People will stop meeting others, stop exploring outdoor acitivies, reduce exercise and suffer daily with emotions and personal challanges. If you feel like you are struggling this winter there are a few simple tips you could try to help you.

Cold weather and winter storms can be a killer -- if you're not prepared. To help with this, take a look at these tips for winter and cold weather survival:
  • Hypothermia and frostbite are the real dangers. Even in 10 C temperatures, you’re at risk of losing too much core heat.
  • Protect your body heat. Protect it, trap it, and treat it like the precious resource it is.
  • Keep covered. Wind and exposure are the enemy. Exposed skin accelerates heat loss, especially through wind.
  • Dress in layers. The air trapped between each layer holds your body heat, like your own personal hot tub. Plus, layers give you better control over regulating body heat so you can avoid dangerous sweating.
  • Avoid sweating and stay dry. Besides moisture loss, sweating is bad because water on your skin makes you colder. That’s why we sweat — it’s the body’s air conditioning system.
  • Snow is an insulator. Don’t be afraid to use it for shelter.
  • Avoid eating snow. You lose a lot of core heat by melting snow inside your body. Melt it outside your body instead.
  • Take vitamin D supplements. 
  • Alcohol does not warm you. Sorry to be a party pooper!
  • Hydrate. Severe cold can be just as dangerous as severe heat. Stay hydrated.
  • Don’t travel unless you have to. Conserve energy. Stay where you’re most likely to be found. Especially if you’re in a nasty storm where navigation and shelter is difficult.
  • Have emergency food in stock, because when you have food during an emergency, you have an edge and,  you can SURVIVE.
  • So, no matter what...  You need to be PREPARED. Most people don't have any type of food or water supply to last them even a few days! Stock up on tinned and dried foods. Things that will last for, at least, several weeks. Ensure that you have enough for each member of your family to enjoy, at least, one good meal every day for 4 weeks. 
  • What will you do if your water supply stops? Could you survive for several days? 
  • Purchase a basic camping stove and safely store a month's supply of gas canisters (use one to see how long it will last).
  • Remember, copper conducts heat better than aluminum. Use copper cooking utensils where possible.
  • Lower your heating by 1°C to save 10% on bills.
  • Bleed your radiators to boost their efficiency.
  • Lower your boiler flow temp to save up to 6% on bills. Got a combi boiler? The default boiler flow temperature is normally set at 70 degrees. Reduce it to 55-60 degrees to save up to 6% on your energy use. Your boiler will work much more efficiently, and you won’t even notice the difference. Sound complicated? It really isn’t!
  • Move your furniture away from radiators. Big items of furniture can stop the heat from a radiator reaching the rest of the room. Got a bed or sofa right next to a radiator? Move it at least an inch or two away. This will improve the air circulation and you’ll notice the room gets warm and cosy much faster.
  • You may have heard that it’s cheaper to leave the heating on all day. That’s a myth. According to the Energy Saving Trust, the best way is to only have the heating on when you need it.
  • Only heat the room that you're using. Bedrooms can be minimally warm. Good duvets will keep you warm at night.

    Stay warm,  stay safe. 
Infrastructure imageInfrastructure image
The Tories have sold-off our critical national infrastructure. Our electricity grid. Our gas distribution network. Our water and sewage. Our power stations, including nuclear, gas, coal and biomass. It is a national scandal.

Even worse, most of them have been sold to overseas owners. So while prices have soared during the worst energy crisis in decades, foreign investors have got rich at our expense.

It also means we have no control over our critical infrastructure. The government have compromised our national security. No other country has sold off the critical utilities that ensure the continuity of daily life. The Tories betrayal of Britain knows no bounds.

Our nuclear & coal power stations are 100% foreign owned. Our gas pipe network is 89% foreign owned. Our gas power stations are 85% foreign owned. Our offshore wind turbines are 83% foreign owned. Our electricity network is 79% foreign owned.

The profit margins for some are over 40%. That’s a vast profit for any business, let alone a monopoly, where customers have no choice and there is no competition. We’ve been completely ripped off.

So billions of pounds of our money goes overseas every year. The biggest single investor is a Chinese businessman. He has received £2 billion in payments so far. Last year he drew a £237 million dividend, when millions of British people were cold, poor and hungry. Many still are.

This is utterly unacceptable. It’s also downright dangerous. The Chinese Communist Party controls the businesses interests of its nationals. That means they can control the UK power network.

There are lots of other lucky winners in the government’s multi-billion pound utility give-away. The French Government. A Spanish Utility company, part-owned by BlackRock. German stock-holders. Canadian pension funds. The Qatari Investment Authority and many more.

In fact 87% of all our monopolies are overseas owned. Some of these companies have loaded up with high interest shareholder loans. But if they go bust, the British tax-payer still pays their debts.

And what do we get for our money? The worst customer service for years. Power shortages. Neglect of ageing networks. Raw sewage pumped into the sea. Nearly 660 million gallons of water lost to leaks every day. That’s what asset-stripping looks like.

The regulators have been asleep at the wheel. They’ve also let bills go through the roof. Even a former government advisor says the regulators aren’t fit for purpose.

But how about the renewables industry that the government praises so much? Around 83% of our renewable infrastructure is also overseas owned. Much of it by the Denmark Government.

And all this, when we have a national treasure beneath our feet – decades of cheap, sustainable, shale gas. This shambolic government have utterly betrayed our country. With Labour it’s all just warm words and waffle.

Only reform UK will take back control of our critical infrastructure. We will nationalise 50% of key utility companies to stop consumers being ripped off. The other 50% will be owned by British pension funds. This is a win-win. Consumers will benefit from lower prices and better management, with private sector expertise from the pension funds. It’s also the right thing to do.

The Tories have sold Britain. They gave away our critical infrastructure and often at rock bottom prices. Those we trusted to stop them did nothing. But be in no doubt. We will end this scandal. Never again will hard-working British people go cold in the winter, while the government gives our money away to their billionaire friends. Change is coming. Only RTeform UK has the bold leadership and proper management that our country needs. Only Reform UK will Make Britain great.

We voted to leave. Why has the EU still got a hold on us?

It is no secret that Reform UK arose from the UK's Brexit Party. We had such hopes for a UK free from the shackles of the European Union. The nation even gave the Conservative Party a huge majority, a vote of confidence that they would get the job done. They have betrayed that confidence, making a massive mess of managing the country, the economy, and just about everything that they touched. No doubt, some will blame Brexit itself for the current situation. It is an easy scapegoat for our terrible troubles. No, Brexit isn't to blame. The fault lies with the mismanagement of the consecutive Conservative Governments. It's time for change, it's time for Reform UK. Let's get Brexit done properly and remove all existing ties to the European Union. Can the UK stand alone? Of course it can! Let's make this nation proud once again. We can put the GREAT back in Britain. Just lend us your vote and see what we can do! We will make you proud to be a UK citizen.

Think Reform UK

Are you fed up with Tory rule and Tory mismanagement of your nation? Do you believe that it is time for a positive change? Then, lend Reform UK your vote and let us show you what we can do!

Don't consider yourself to be English, Northern Irish, Scottish, or Welsh; let's put our differences aside and think of ourselves as British, first and foremost. A citizen of the UK. You can be proud to be from your region of Britain but start to think British.

Yes, I know that I am equating Britain with the UK but, for me, a citizen of the UK is British!

Think British. Think of yourself as British. Think of supporting the British culture and British values. Let's put the Great back in Britain!

 Think British, think Reform UK!

The Conservative Party has betrayed your trust and Labour is too woke. We all know that 'woke is a joke'. Only Reform UK has the policies to put the UK back on its feet, to make us truly independent, friends with, but separate from, other nations. Putting the citizens of the UK first does not mean that we will turn our backs on the rest of the world. We can be great again, Great Britain Think Britain, and be proud to be British. We are a great nation.

Reform UK, putting the GREAT back in Britain. 

Work for British independence, British strength, and British values

Work British imageWork British image
Work for Britain. Work British. Vote Reform UK.
It's time for change. It's time for Reform UK.

Reform UK's economic plan will encourage people to work. The Government is increasing taxes to the highest level in 70 years with medium-term growth expected to be the lowest for 60 years. This means lower wages and less money to invest in health and other public services. The combined works of Harry Potter is fun but dwarfed by our tax code of some 20,000 pages, the most complex in the world. This stifles growth and creates an industry of unproductive tax avoidance. Smart money and smart people will not invest in the UK nor come to the UK in a mobile world if they think we are uncompetitive in tax terms. Reform UK is the only party that stands for cutting taxes and simplifying taxes to create higher growth, better wages, and better healthcare. Our ‘Low Tax, Simple Tax = High Growth’.

Reform UK will:

• free up 6 million people from income tax, by lifting the minimum threshold to £20,000, from £12,500 p.a. This is 1 in 5 taxpayers. Basic income tax rate stays at 20%;
• ensure that the less well off benefit proportionately most, saving £1,500 p.a. @£20,000 salary, circa £30 per week;
• lift higher rate tax threshold to £70,000 from the present £50,000;
• establish a flat 40% tax rate above £70,000;
• lift Capital Gains Tax threshold to £20,000 from £12,300, with a single 20% flat rate above that amount;
• free up 1.2 million SME’s from paying Corporation tax (over 80% of companies) by lifting the minimum threshold to £100,000. Raise rate thereafter from 19% to 20%;
• Cut employers NI from 13.8% to 10% under £70,000.

Buy British, Think British, Work British.

It's time for Britain. It's time for Reform UK.

Buy British, Think British, Work British

Buy British, Think British, Work British.

Unashamedly, putting the United Kingdom first: buying and thinking and working for Britain will put the GREAT back in Britain. Britain can be truly independent, standing on its own feet, friends with, but not reliant on other nations for essential commodities. We are in the mess that we are primarily because of mismanagement of ourresources. Farming them out to other nations, making us reliant on other countries for essential commodities. At the behest of their good will. Should that good will stop (as in the case of Russia) then, the UK is left without an essential supply.

The UK is facing the worst economic crisis since World War II. Something has to change. The present government has proved itself to be incompetent. It's time for fresh ideas. It's time to Reform the UK!

Lend us your support and we will give you back your nation. Buy British, think British, and work for British strength, British culture, British heritage, and British values. Let's put the GREAT back in Britain. Let's make sure that the UK is able to stand alone, friends with, but not dependent upon other nations for essential commodities.

Can we fix it? Yes, we can!
Reform UK would put an Australian style immigration points scheme in place such that the UK would accept only those immigrants who would benefit Britain. Illegal immigration would be significantly reduced and, we would work to prevent Britain being an attractive destination for any illegal immigrant. It's clear that the majority of illegal immigrants are not fleeing persecution, rather are economic migrants seeking a better life or are coming to exploit our system.

Why are illegal immigrants problematic?

• because they are illegal (the clue is in the name);
• use of your taxes to fund them;
• take away housing from British residents;
• demands on already stretched medical and welfare systems;
• occupy jobs that should be filled by British residents;
• (the above has the effect of) keeping wages low;
• higher proportion of criminals (smugglers, traffickers) trying to sneak in by the backdoor;
• less likely to assimilate;
• dilute our cultural heritage;
• possible terrorist and security threat.

When the weather is good and the seas are calm – which has been the case all this summer – hundreds, sometimes thousands of fit young men make their way across the English Channel in boats. So far this year, more than 25,000 have arrived on our shores, double last year’s figure. More arrived in August than the whole of 2020. By the end of 2022, the Home Office believes as many as 60,000 people will have made the perilous crossing: not far off the equivalent of the entire British Army.

Within this number, a shocking trend has been exposed. Thanks to a public-spirited insider who risked his job and perhaps own safety to reveal the truth about who is really coming here, we now know that the single biggest group of “refugees” are not Syrians and Afghans fleeing war and terror: they are Albanian.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Government kept this a secret. After all, if the individuals seeking “refuge” in the UK via this dangerous and illegal route are not poverty-stricken victims of conflict and strife, would the long-suffering British taxpayer be quite as forgiving?

Following ths expose, the Government has been forced to admit that about 6 in 10 of the Channel crossings are by Albanians.

No wonder ministers did not want us to see the military intelligence documents that have been obtained, showing that a shocking four in ten Channel migrants are from this perfectly peaceful part of Eastern Europe, a NATO member state that is well on its way to joining the EU.

It is cheap and easy for Albanians wishing to visit the UK to obtain a visa for six months. They can come here to work perfectly legally under schemes like the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme. Flights are inexpensive. So why don a lifejacket and scramble aboard an overcrowded and ill-equipped dinghy controlled by criminal gangs, unless you are up to no good? Much cheaper and easier to hop on a Whizz Air flight from Tirana to Gatwick or Luton, for a few hundred quid – a tenth of the fee demanded by criminal gang bosses, with an questionable safety record to boot?

Since 2012, the Albanian prison population in the UK has soared nine-fold to well over 1,500. Last July 2021, justice minister Chris Phelp enthusiastically announced a new prisoner return scheme to Albania, suggesting British taxpayers (generous as ever) might help pay for a new jail there. No surprise that six months later, just 24 of the easiest targets had gone home.

At the current rate of growth, within just 4 years, there will be more Albanians in UK prisons than Albanians in Albanian jails, where there are currently 5,000 inmates.

Instead of supporting Albania to build a new prison there, we might as well just build a special one for them here. Indeed, one of Albania’s fastest growing exports successes is sending its criminals to the UK to end up in our jails. The brutal truth? The UK is becoming Albania’s Alcatraz. For the Albanian government, all this works beautifully. Let undesirables make their way to the UK and hey presto! They reduce their own crime problem.

In the absence of any logical other explanation, it is feared that most of the Albanian’s crossing the Channel fall into one of two categories. Either they are foot soldiers for British based criminal overlords who (according to the National Crime Agency) play a key role in the cocaine and cannabis markets; or are they being trafficked into modern day slavery, helping to launder the vast drug profits of these gangs.

Ever noticed all the cash-only Albanian run car washes?

They’re not the only suspicious businesses linked to this racket. What about all the “Turkish barbers” now popping up on high streets across the UK. Hair isn’t the only thing they’re washing, and I strongly suspect many more Albanians than Turks are involved. So prolific have these shadowy shops become that even small market towns have three or more such “barbers,” few of which enjoy a roaring trade. Has our hair really started growing faster since Covid? Empty chairs suit the criminal gangs just fine. These places only take cash and are presided over by young men who were not present when God gave out smiles. By filling their diaries with fake appointments, they can then launder large amounts of cash.

Lawless Britain has become the softest of targets for the hardest of Albanian criminal masterminds. Perhaps we should see how they get on in Rwanda? Better still, let Albania build and pay for its own Alcatraz. 

Without the vital work that we in Reform UK are doing, so much of this activity would go unnoticed and unreported. We can make a real difference to the way our country is run but only with your help and support.

None of the parties represented in Westminster have the guts to step up and really deal with the growing problem of illegal immigration. Well, we do, and we will!

A responsible government has a duty to protect our borders. We must know who is coming in and who is going out of the country at our airports and ports. Let’s welcome those who have high level skills and talents that we need, such as doctors, engineers, software designers, scientists, surgeons, in tightly controlled numbers that meet our requirements. We want these valuable people to come and work in the UK legally, and play by the rules, respecting our values. This must not be an excuse however for cheaper labour that reduces wages in the UK. Nor must it be an excuse for not training our wonderful young people. Illegal immigration is unacceptable and must not be granted asylum in the UK. The vile people smugglers running the dangerous, illegal routes, such as across the English Channel, must be stopped. People smugglers should be given very long prison sentences. Everyone must know that no one coming via these illegal routes will be allowed to stay in the UK. Cases must be determined in just a few weeks and people returned to from where they came. The cost to the taxpayer is already billions every year and the impact on local communities around the country is very significant. However most people who are concerned are afraid to speak out on this issue in what is effectively a restraint on free speech.

While Westminster is engaged in yet another self-inflicted fiasco, our borders remain open. On Saturday, nearly 1000 Channel migrants arrived on UK shores. The Tories' record on this crisis so far has been appalling, and there seems to be no sign of the crossings slowing down:

Illegal immigration via English Channel by year:

2018: 299
2019: 1,843
2020: 8,466
2021: 28,461
2022: 39,430 and counting

Illegal immigration doesn't affect Mansfield??

Yes, it does!

• The "It's not our problem so, we can just shut our eyes to it" attitude is not in anyone's interest;
• We are all tax payers and it is costing the nation billions of pounds to fund this influx;
• with hundreds of thousands of people hitting our shores, how long will it be before Mansfield is involved?;
• Crime is on the rise in Mansfield. Do you want organised criminal gangs adding further to it?
Organised crime knows no boundaries. Mansfield would be affected;
• Additional population will eventually have a detrimental effect on local services causing you personal inconvenience. The NHS is already stretched beyond its capacity.
What effect do you think hundreds of thousands of extra demand will have?

It would be good at this point to recap the policies which Reform UK laid out back in May and August this year (2022) to deal with this growing crisis:

1) Publish the origin of Channel migrants monthly.
2) Instruct the Navy to give the location of launch points immediately to the French police and also to publish them publicly.
3) Pick up and take back boats under the existing laws provided in the 1974 International Convention of Safety of Lives at Sea (SOLAS).
4) Withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights and the 1951 Refugee Convention. We don't need to be signatories to either to help genuine refugees in need.
5) Reform the Human Rights Act 1998.
6) Merge the existing Border Force and Immigration Enforcement departments into a single dedicated force, to be called His Majesty’s Border Force (HMBF).
7) Remove the new HMBF from woke civil service control, attaching it to the Home Office as a separate entity.

Health care in the UK. Better with Reform UK.

Reform UK will reform our public services: we must be ambitious, seeking faster, more efficient public services that work better for us all, with better results. For example, in health, we should demand zero waiting lists. We should be able to see a doctor in a reasonable amount of time (preferablythe same day).

The NHS is possibly the most loved healthcare system in the world. Being free at the point of delivery is at its core and must always continue. The frontline care is amazing, dedicated, and always appreciated. But we have to be honest that in the back office, it is neither the most efficient nor the best managed system in the world. Let’s be ambitious: we should aim for zero waiting lists. This is achievable with reform. Many other countries don’t have waiting lists, why should we put up with them?

We will be putting forward detailed proposals in due course on our reforms that could make this happen, but here is a hint of our thinking:

• Stop the taxpayer being ripped off by pharmaceutical companies;
• Abolish all politically imposed hospital targets that distort clinical priorities;
• Re-open the nursing and midwifery professions to recruitment without the degree requirement, alongside a new nursing qualification in social care;
• Introduce 24-hour GP surgeries to relieve the strain in A&E departments;
• Restore face-to-face GP appointments permanently for those who want them;
• Increase the number of nurses;
• Increase nurse take home pay by, at least, 6%;
• Increase the number of doctors;
• Watch this space!

Safe Spaces, Safe Streets, Safe Surroundings

Common sense dictates more police on the streets will help prevent crime and help catch criminals. Reform UK would:

• Increase police numbers in the community, with officers on the beat, engaging with the local community.
• Ensure there is more visible policing with a focus on combating violent crime, robbery and
burglary rather than enforcing restrictions on free speech and harassing people sitting on a park bench.
• Target the menace of County Lines drug dealers, gangs and the growth of knife crime.
• Our police need much better technology to help them when they are on the streets. Some of
what they currently use is archaic. This can substantially reduce bureaucracy and paperwork.

Reform UK will reset the ambition for police forces across the U.K. The recent shocking report into the Charing Cross police station showed a pervading culture of disgraceful behaviour, unbecoming of those entrusted with the safety and protection of our communities. This was not just a few bad apples. There was a culture of cover up and denial, rather than performance and accountability.

The recent data showing that only 6% of crimes now result in a charge indicates how low things have reached. This is almost giving up territory. In truth, for many crimes, the police and indeed victims have given up. 
Three Key Areas imageThree Key Areas image
Reform is essential in three key areas:

Reform our Economy

To succeed, we must become a low tax, smartly regulated, high growth economy. Faster growth is the only way to better wages and more tax revenues to invest in better healthcare and other public services. Our bold economic vision frees up over 6 million people from paying income tax and over 1.2 million small businesses/self-employed from paying corporation tax. We would also remove a raft of stifling taxes. This will generate much faster growth.

Reform our Public Sector 

We must be ambitious, seeking faster, more efficient public services that work better for us all, with better results. For example, in health, we should demand zero waiting lists. Our police need to focus on preventing crime, catching criminals, not woke nonsense.

Reform our Institutions

major change is needed to the bodies that impact our lives, the unelected cronyism of the House of Lords, the outdated civil service, the bloated BBC. Reform is essential to our voting system so it is fairer, more representative; the two-party system embeds the status quo and prevents real change.

A real agenda for bold reform. We restate our core values: We must return all our liberties to the people. We must preserve freedom of speech. We must control our borders properly. We must protect our proud heritage from the woke folk and celebrate our nation’s incredible successes.

The education of our children is the key to the future success of our nation. It is vital that we get it right.

Reform UK would invest more wisely in young people:

• university students are being ripped off with high fees often for just online learning. Many degree courses could be done in 2 years not 3 years, which would save students many thousands of pounds.

• We would scrap interest rates on student loans and extend the capital repayment period, which will improve the debt recovery rate.

• We would introduce a new workable apprenticeship scheme. We have to be honest that many young people would be better learning whilst in work rather than accruing debt at university.

• Our schools and pupils need better technology to give them the best chances as we help prepare them for life. Covid has changed so much. Our children learn best in school and never again must we shut them, forcing children to learn from home for weeks on end.

• Schools must focus on the basics of teaching every child to read and write.

• Teachers must be free to teach pupils how to think, not what to think, without fear of the woke police or religious persecution.

• We will invest to expand the local capacity of alternative provision, to ensure all children are given every chance to achieve and pursue meaningful education or employment.

• A teachers’ National Leadership Scheme will be introduced designed to ensure the best leadership talent reaches our most deprived areas, and remains supported when they get there.

• Arbitrary limits on pupil exclusions shall be lifted, enabling Headteachers to maintain high standards of behaviour in schools.

• Ofsted inspection will be reformed to abolish the current public grading criteria, which can make retention and recruitment even harder, ensuring no school is harmed by an Ofsted inspection but is instead supported to improve.

• School league table criteria shall take greater account of provision and outcomes in music, technology, and the arts to give parents more information when choosing schools.

• All state schools, where possible, shall take part in a ‘Daily Mile’ exercise programme for all staff and pupils.

• The importance of healthy nutrition will be emphasised in the curriculum and implemented in school. In state schools, the sale of sweets and sugary drinks will be banned, fresh fruit will be provided during break times, and practical home economics will be taught at secondary level.

• Fee-paying schools will be encouraged to offer more free places.

• We will invest in opening a new generation of on-site welfare and support hubs that will work with schools to ensure vital support services get quickly to those children and families who need them most.

• Free school meals will be provided to all state school-educated children during term time only.

• All children will receive instruction in the workings of the UK constitution, and a broad familiarisation with British history. History teaching will be honest, while making the balanced case for Britain’s important and net positive contribution to world history.

• Outside English and Mathematics, we will rebalance the way schools are assessed to accord equal value to technical and vocational courses as to academic subjects, provided that a healthy balance of both technical and academic courses is offered.
Britain is broken. Richard Tice explains this in the
attached video. Change is necessary. We need to
Reform the UK.

Reform the economy.
Reform the energy supply. 


• Reform the BBC: Bloated, wasteful and obligatory. The licence fee needs abolishing. People should be free to choose.

• Reform the unelected, crony filled House of Lords: The Prime Minister enriching his brother, mates and personal donors by making them peers is indefensible. A properly representative second House is needed.

• Reform the Civil Service: Better leadership, more accountability, and greater welcome of successful people from the private sector to come in and serve the nation.

• Reform our Border Controls and Immigration: We need proper border security at airports and ports so we know who is entering and leaving the UK. Illegal immigration is unacceptable and should not be granted asylum in the UK. We welcome controlled immigration of talent and skills to meet our economic needs, this must not be an excuse however for cheaper labour and not training our own young people.

• Reform the voting system: To make it more representative. Smaller parties mean more choice, new ideas, and better debate.

• Reform the postal voting system: We must combat fraud and abuse to ensure trust in our democracy. We have seen real problems first hand in recent elections and this problem is far bigger than many realise.

• Reform our educational system. See previous section.

• Reform our NHS. More doctors. More and better paid nurses. Zero waiting lists. Effective ambulance service. 24 hour surgeries.

• Reform our military covenant: Let’s properly protect our troops and veterans from unwarranted, never-ending legal claims. Let’s invest in properly equipping and housing  our armed forces. Let’s invest in training our brave people for new jobs when they leave the services.

Let's make Britain GREAT

Years of Government mismanagement has left Britain Broken. The attached video of Dr. David Bull's speech at the 2022 conference covers the issues. Starting with the pandemic (is anyone, any institution, or any country's leadership ever going to be held accountable?) and the Government's response, then moving through the following crisis filled years, we end up with a Conservative Party in disarray, a very short-lived Prime Minister, and a Broken Britain.

Not since the Second World War has the UK faced such a disastrous situation. Desperate times call for strong leadership. Do you trust the Conservative government to provide it? Would Labour be any better?

It's time for change. It's time for Reform UK.

Lend us your vote and we will make Britain GREAT once again.

Surely, you can see the error in voting for parties that have failed the UK time and time again?

It's time for change.
It's time for Reform UK.
