These all sound pretty nasty ideas to me
There are some odd coincidences in life and one was to read Michael Stanley of UKIP's reply to my letter.
In this I said that UKIP would let people with money move around Europe to choose where to construct their factories for the cheapest labour, while preventing British people from moving abroad to get jobs where the money had gone by pulling us out of Europe and its free movement of Labour laws.
He declared that they are not a party of nasty people, but on the same day, Thursday, October 18, The Independent reported the views of the UKIP candidate for police commissioner in the Hull area.
His ideas included, Yorkshire women should be at home and always have dinner on the table when their husband returns, bringing us into line with China and Iran by restoring the death penalty and ending police policy on hate crimes.

However one feels about the others, which are all pretty nasty to me, the latter is by definition nasty.
Meanwhile, Tim Newark of the Taxpayer's Alliance on November 8 declares it is unfair that our council tax should be used to subsidise, to the tune of about £80,000 the activities of trade union staff to negotiate terms and conditions, deal with the case load of troubled employees and fund their secretarial roles.
However, by the same token, it is also unfair that non-members of unions get the benefit of those negotiations without paying union subscriptions.
It cannot be a fair world or else we would all have the same food on the same day and fall ill to the same degree when a flu virus is around.
Therefore the alternative to the council paying the employer's fair share of the cost of these negotiations, which is the equivalent of about one third of some council chief's wages, to ensure all stakeholders reach an amicable agreement, without animosity, is to return to the days of closed shop workplaces where workers have to be members of one union or another.
I am sure the unions will be happy if that is what Tim wants.
The third way is to return the feudal system of government or slavery and of course there is the possibility that such is what some people who cannot see the consequences of their actions will bring on us.
The Green Party wants a "living wage" introduced.
That would mean all in Bath would receive a wage above the minimum wage since it is more expensive to live here.
