Our BNC Party Manifesto

The BNC party feels very strongly about the welfare of the citizens of the UK. In this piece we show our NHS manifesto to the voters of this country. First of all, we pledge to increase taxes on the higher earning population (those who earn over £100,000 per year) so we have more budget for other departments of the NHS, like mental health and social care. We believe that mental health is just as important in our society as physical health.

If we get into office, we also plan to end privatisation in all our hospitals and clinics therefore meaning that all UK citizens have the same opportunities in healthcare and keeping to our original purpose that was made in 1948; free healthcare for all in the UK.

We also wish to focus on promoting healthier choices throughout the country; 28% of adults are obese and encouraging healthier lifestyles and diets could possible reduce the strain that the NHS faces on obesity. The money we would save from reduced numbers of diabetes and heart diseases could be put to use for other problems we face like cures for diseases such as the many types of cancer and COVID-19.

Since almost 1.5 million people work under our national healthcare system, we plan to end the taking of money from our employee’s pensions so the retirees of the NHS can enjoy lovely retirements without worry of their pensions being taken from them. Over 10 million operations are performed each year in surgeries across the UK and we despise the fact that the people who save lives get their hard-earned money taken.

The NHS has nearly 100,000 unfilled jobs, so we will hire as many new people for those jobs - and not necessarily just medical personnel! We understand that without healthcare assistants, medical secretaries, care workers and technicians, we wouldn’t be as successful as we are at present.

The members of the BNC party care very deeply about our nation’s health and wellbeing, physical, mental and all other factors. We wish to take it into our own hands to use our fantastic healthcare system to its fullest efficiency and capability and make sure we maintain our reputation as the best healthcare system in the world for many years, decades, even centuries to come.

    Your plan is to give diets and guidelines to those who are obese. Though that is a physical problem (being overweight), for most people it probably came from a mental problem like depression or anxiety. If somebody is depressed and starts eating unhealthily, a doctor can't just give them strict guidelines they have to follow; that isn't going to cure depression. Like you said, being mentally unwell is as important as being physically unwell, but it is more than that. A lot of physical issues stem from mental unwellness, so it is actually more important. If we put more money into getting rid of mental illnesses, it will indirectly cure some physical issues and is some cases obesity. Of course, not all physical illnesses come from mental issues because sometimes you can become ill naturally - not of your own accord. We still need to invest money into curing physical illnesses, but first and foremost we need to do the same thing but mentally, because it helps both sides. This will help the NHS because they can take care of other people who need medical attention immediately.

    Overall, I agree with you that we should spend a lot more time on keeping people well mentally, as well as physically. I will definitely vote for the BNC party!

      Where do you find your evidence that being overweight 'probably came from a mental problem'? This is quite a big statement to make and we might want to be more nuanced and careful.

        Well, Tom. There is a mental health problem that is called binge eating disorder that does makes you overweight.

    Thanks very much for sharing this, there is some great research here. What has informed your decision to mark those earning over £100,000 as "higher earning"? Why not increase taxes for those earning over £120,000 a year, or over £60,000 a year? Why have you chosen £100,000?
