Ideas from Compass (supported by church groups) for Labour manifesto

Compass is lobbying Ed Miliband (manifesto co-ordinator) for the inclusion of some key ideas in the Labour manifesto.

They come in a document ‘Winning on the Doorstep’ and include quite a few ideas which church groups such as Church Action on Poverty and ourselves have been recommending:

1. Make the banks safe
2. Make all votes count
3. A living wage
4. A New Military Covenant
5. Tax junk mail
6. Replace top-up fees with a graduate tax
7. A High Pay Commission
8. Close the gender pay gap
9. Cap interest rates on unsecured credit
10. Railways for people, not profit
11. Ban advertising to children
12. Introduce a Robin Hood tax
