  • Charter for Change | Independent Alliance
    the social fabric of rural communities The creation of new stable jobs needs to be distributed nationwide for everyone to feel the benefits The neglected rural transport network must be rebuilt A full and functioning customer led banking system should be set up in smaller towns and villages The requirement for a fairer distribution of CAP payments is paramount if we are to deliver the necessary economic stimulus We do not accept establishment claims that the banks have implemented meaningful reform Insiders still call the shots in the financial institutions Proposals to sell off Allied Irish Banks before the sick banking culture has changed must be postponed The policy of promoting pillar banks is leading towards a duopoly No Irish government should be allowed to privatise the banks until competition and other reforms are firmly restored or enacted Middle Ireland needs protection to combat the banks role as their persecutors in chief We will not tolerate discrimination of any type whether it is on the basis of gender race age creed or otherwise We believe in equal access for all to health and education Children must be cherished recognising that smart investment in our young people is a progressive way to secure Ireland s future We will prioritise the needs of small business We recognise the contribution made by the self employed entrepreneur to the Irish economy at a time when equally necessary multinationals are receiving favourable tax treatment All those who provide jobs for the Irish economy must receive appropriate recognition and equitable treatment Insiders a plague on Irish public life must be outed Lack of transparency and excessive salaries in government supported bodies like the Central Remedial Clinic and other charities have already been exposed Elsewhere powerful lobby groups like the Irish Farmers Association have failed to reveal important information to their members These practices must end Successive governments have lived happily alongside the unacceptable governance culture of many of these insiders Ireland should remain within the European Union But we will not support any government that continues to play second fiddle to other countries in Europe We will not permit any coalition of which we are part to pursue the path of deference to powerful European leaders Ireland must challenge the European consensus dominated by the needs of Germany and France We must no longer be one of a group of small nations obedient observers at the tables of the rich countries Proposals from Europe that are an obstacle to progress should be opposed not rubber stamped Ireland s most vulnerable must be protected We will sign a separate binding pact with any other group in government that the sick the elderly those worst off in society and those with additional needs must be given priority We will insist this pledge is underpinned by legislation including the enactment of our Equality of Access Down s Syndrome Bill within the first six months of government The next government should ratify the UN Convention on the rights of persons
