Most YPP debates happen over here...

This 'blog is mainly for info only, the serious (and not-so-serious) debate is carried out by active members here, ideas filter through all that and end up in our manifesto.

YPP London meet-up, Friday 3 August

1. We'll be at the Brewmaster from 5.20 onwards for an hour or two. Leicester Sq Tube, exit 1, left and left again into the alleyway, look out for the yellow leaflet on the table.

2. New leaflet(s). Draft versions complete with typo's here. We've got to tread the fine line between left wing and right wing i.e. the Georgist way. In other words, saying that rent controls would dampen land speculation but emphasise that they are a second best solution to LVT and reducing taxes on output and employment.

3. Ring or text me if you'll be running late 07954 59 07 44.

YPP (London) meet-up, tomorrow Friday 29 after work

1. We'll be at the Brewmaster from 5.20 onwards for an hour or two. Leicester Sq Tube, exit 1, left and left again into the alleyway, look out for the yellow leaflet on the table.

2. Topic - the 2015 version of the YPP tax reform app gave people results that seemed 'too good to be true'. We have to update this anyway, so I'm thinking, let's strip it down to just scrapping VAT and NIC and replacing it with LVT. It still gives really good results but is more plausible and an easier 'sell'.

1. Brewmaster pub, Leicester Sq Tube, exit 1, turn left and left again into the alleyway, look out for the yellow leaflet. 5.20 onwards for an hour or two.

2. Topic - somebody from the Populist Party asked me how to sell LVT to populists, I'm drafting a speech in my head, if anybody has any ideas, I'd love to hear them.
