New political party wants to launch “brave new world” on Western Isles

The general election is on June 8.
The general election is on June 8.

A new political party hopes to oust the SNP from its Western Isles’ stronghold at the June election.

The Children of the Atom has a “radical, transformative” vision and thinks the Hebridean islands is a suitable launch pad to create a “brave new world” for Britain.

Plans to build the party to contest all 650 UK seats in the 2020 election seem to have been caught out by Prime Minister Theresa May’s announcement of a snap election, with the Western Isles seat appearing to be the only one in its sights at the moment.

Supporters were told: “We are campaigning to get the Scottish National Party out of the Western Isles by standing a candidate in the UK General Election 2017.”

An internet crowdfunding drive is being set up today from its new national campaign headquarters on the Isle of Lewis.

Creating debt-free money to “re-set society” is its key policy to drive all other elements in its wider strategy to “push society to its full potential.”

Reducing the size of the population is another significant idea, as is replacing income tax with a 10% tax on people’s bank deposits.

Every citizen, including children, would receive a sum equal to the average wage – around £27,600 – for life.

Families will be fined for having too many babies while “substantial grants” aim to encourage people to emigrate overseas in a bid to shrink the UK population to 50 million people in the first instance.
