  • David Smith: AIP.

Comments (0)

AN INDEPENDENCE FROM EUROPE (AIP) will remove Britain's political union with the EU but retain current trade with Europe. Britain's economic base will be expanded with fair trade and closer links to the Commonwealth. Trading quotas will be removed.

AIP will abolish the Common Agricultural Policy and reinstate the British fishing industry. All this will be achieved by negotiation under the umbrella of the World Trade Organisation.

Open borders with the EU will cease and there will be managed immigration. Migrant workers would need permits.

Better opportunities are needed in education, with additional vocational training, apprenticeships and a transition to a more productive and high-wage economy where workers get a fair deal.

AIP will ensure there are better transport links across the region and that Network Rail installs additional measures to protect the main line at Dawlish. The former alternative line to Cornwall via Exeter, Okehampton, Tavistock and Plymouth will be reinstated.

Former public services that are seen to be failing would be returned to public ownership. Privatisation and the break-up of the NHS will be halted.
