Nigel Farage has unveiled the Brexit Party’s general election policies, promising a “political revolution that puts ordinary people first”.
The party leader pledged to cut the foreign aid budget, abolish the House of Lords and cap permanent immigration at 50,000 a year.
The Brexit Party is running in 275 seats, after deciding to stand down in the 317 won by the Tories in 2017.
It is also promising a “clean break” from all EU institutions.
Speaking in London, Mr Farage said his party would scrap VAT on fuel bills and stop companies earning less than £10,000 a year paying corporation tax.
He promised that millions of trees would be planted to absorb carbon emissions.
Mr Farage also said his party favoured making civil servants sign a “pledge of political neutrality” and devising “political guidelines” for the Supreme Court.
- Introducing a ban on exporting waste to other countries for it to be burned
- Scrapping the HS2 high-speed rail project
- Providing free “base level” broadband for all homes, and free wi-fi on all public transport
- Abolishing business rates for shops outside the M25, funded by a “small online sales tax”
- Scrapping all interest on student loans, and abolishing inheritance tax
- Phasing out the BBC licence fee
Several other political parties have launched traditional manifestos – outlining policy commitments for government – this week, but Mr Farage and his colleagues have declined to do so.
He said manifestos were a “means of telling people what they want to hear without ever having the genuine desire to implement them”.
The Brexit Party will campaign for postal voting to be limited to elderly, infirm and overseas voters, with Mr Farage citing “many examples of intimidation and fraud”.
In manifestos launched this week:
- Labour promised “real change” and “radical” plans, including nationalisation projects, green jobs and more council homes
- The Lib Dems have promised a “brighter future” by stopping Brexit, as well as extra funding for the NHS and free childcare
- The Green Party has proposed to spend £100bn a year to cut emissions, along with a basic income for all and banning single use plastic
Plaid Cymru is also launching its plans for the election on Friday.
