Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration,
without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion,
political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political,
jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person
belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other
limitation of sovereignty.
Finding it fishy.
-Action in Parliament:
1. Give teachers and head teachers more power and freedom to teach as
well as regulating classroom behaviour. A ‘standard curriculum’
rather than a ‘national curriculum’.
2. -‘Nice and Fed, Sport and Bed’ scheme for primary school children
which will encourage healthy eating, fitness and a long sleep every
night. We will use local celebrities as positive role models.
5. Mentoring between Primary-Secondary students and Secondary-
College students for students to gain skills in leadership,
independence, educating which employers will value.
6. Feedback system for students to say what they want their school to
give them via our online feedback project (see ‘Local Feedback’).
7. Start Pupil’s Voices to encourage students to have a say in their own
school/college by increasing the power of the student council.
8. Start Parent’s Voices to encourage parents to engage in their child’s
educational community. This will allow parents and teachers to liaise
and improve the overall standard of each school/college.
We fully support green policies as one of
our three main ideologies. As you have
read through this manifesto you will
hopefully have noticed how many of the
other sections have strong links to a self-
sufficient, workable and economically
sound environmental infrastructure- the
low-pollution train service for example.
Another environmental point briefly
touched upon in our ‘Local Communities’
section was that of allotments. Not only
do they save you money, they also allow
us to support local businesses as it means
you will be buying less fruit and
vegetables from chain stores, and it will
reduce the air miles that are created when
produce is shipped in from abroad. We
plan, if elected, to launch a local
campaign to encourage the growth of
your own food, as they did in the Second
World War with great success.
Our other main promise will be to
connect with Transition Towns, a
movement in Cambridge that deals with
issues such as alternative energy
production methods and a vision of a
mostly self-sufficient society. By
transferring these visions into our own
manifesto we can work with their
experienced experts to foster
environmental communities all over
