Candidates

John Morris

1. What do you plan to do in order to make sure you remain ‘in touch’ with the electorate?
If elected, I would produce an annual report to be posted to every elector in the constituency, using the expenses allowed for my duties as a constituency MP.
2. What makes you the best candidate for this constituency?
I believe I am the only candidate standing for absolute peace, based on the premise that all constituents wish to treat others as they wish to be treated themselves. I would thus expect all of them to reject war and violence as the means to resolve conflict and to embrace peace and the methods of non-violence to do so.
3. What has the current Member achieved that you believe has been successful?
She has never communicated her successes, if any, to me directly although she did assist in expediting the return of my driving licence from DVLA.
4. In your opinion, is austerity working? What should we take from the state of the economy during this Government’s tenure?
If media reports are to be believed, austerity is not working with many more people suffering poverty and hardship from cuts in benefit and services, while the rich appear to be getting richer day by day. I see “Austerity” as a failed concept, leading to greater inequalities in society. I would like to see the government assuming full responsibility for money supply and not sheltering behind the banks.
My reading of the state of the economy is that the Government has failed to establish one that is stable and sustainable.
5. Does (legal) immigration need more limitations or is it vital for the UK?
Treating all people as we wish to be treated ourselves can only mean that any limitation to the movement of people from country to country is wrong. There must be no barriers to that movement, just as the government should be working with others to eradicate the inequalities between the peoples of all countries. Only in that way can there be true peace.
6. Many people are concerned about the cost of living in the UK, with wages having failed to rise in line with the price of food, energy and rent in recent years. How can this be corrected?
The Peace Party wishes to see a Basic Income brought in for all, funded directly from government-created money, with no interference from the banks.
7. How would you like to see the NHS change in the future in order to become more successful?
The Health Service must be returned to being a fully-funded national one. The moves towards privatisation should be halted and reversed; no private firms must be involved at all – no one should be making a profit from delivering health care. Government cash must not be siphoned off into shareholders’ pockets.
8. What measures do you think need to be taken to decrease unemployment, particularly youth unemployment and those who have never been employed?
Treating others as we wish to be treated ourselves must mean that everyone has satisfying work to provide a good income. The government should be investigating and providing steps that must be taken to ensure that it is as easy as possible to establish companies or, preferably, co-operatives, to manufacture goods and provide services. The steps will include financial help, such as loans, at low interest, and low taxes during set-up times as well as local authority help with providing suitable accommodation at low initial rents.
9. Does the lack of diversity in Parliament equate to a lack of representation?
Probably – and that may explain why some young friends refer to our system as “demockery”. I would hope that a change in the voting system for UK parliamentary and council elections to one that is truly proportional (as in Northern Ireland) might improve diversity. Perhaps, like the Swiss and the Americans, it might help to ask the electorate their opinions much more often by using referenda.
10 . If an EU Referendum were to take place, how would you encourage your constituents to vote and why?
Peace is maintained much more certainly if nations work closer and closer together (until such time as all national boundaries can be abolished). The EU is one small step forward on the road to bringing humanity closer together. We must not now take a step backwards but engage more deeply in co-operation with others. I would certainly encourage constituents to vote to remain in the Union.
