This is the Pink party’s manifesto – Please vote for us.
Education – We pledge to do the following:
- We will spend £10 million on training more teachers and teaching assistants to reduce class sizes and for children to have the best education they can!
- We also want every child to have a free school dinner. We will raise taxes by 15% to all big companies who make more than £100 million a year to make free school dinners available. We will also make vegetable patches in primary school. Once this happened taxes will lower.
Health & Social Care – We pledge to do the following:
- £10 million is what we will spend to train extra doctors and nurses to help people in serious need. The money will also come from bigger companies’ taxes.
- We also promise to spend £100 thousand on hospital beds as there isn’t enough at the moment.
Law & Order – We pledge to do the following:
- We are going to improve police officers’ ability and train new ones, also with the money from bigger companies.
- We also promise to make officers more aware of knife crime as it is a big problem at the moment.
Tax & Spending – We pledge to do the following:
- We will raise individual taxes by 5%, but only to people who earn more than £500 thousand.
Environment – We pledge to do the following:
- We will plant a new tree with every £50 a person gives their Eco group.
