More of the same old policies but in different wrappers

Ed Miliband: these are six economic Bills Labour would push right now

Ed Miliband will today set out six of the key economic Bills that would appear in a Labour Queen’s Speech next week.

Sorry Ed. Just more of the same old tinkering with the problem.There is nothing here to inspire me to rejoin or vote for the Labour Party.

Try these instead.

Housing: Local Councils in conjunction with Housing associations, to commence building of social housing for rent.

Banking: Retain existing publicly owned Banks within public and  re nationalise Bank of England. New State controlled bank(s) to provide low cost (interest) loans to small business employing less than 500 employees.

Energy: To take back into public ownership the providers of Gas and electricity and water.

Transport: To return to public ownership the former elements of British Rail and to establish an integrated transport system.

(and just for good measure)
Employment:repeal anti trades union legislation of previous governments.

(and that is just for starters.)
