If I were a Member of Parliment I would make Politics and Economics a Compulsary Subject in Schools, the reason for this to educate people to not make hasty discisions such as the predicament we are in now, with a population of elderly people who are against immigrations full stop and for the the larger majority who do not know anything about business. Only a small percentage of people are educated to understand about Politics and Economics so society is under an unfair disadvantage.
I have my own opinion on Brexit but I have just had an interesting conversation with my 18 year old daughter that opposed my idea that the people of the UK should not have had a right to vote in the referrendum about the desicion to stay or leave the EU.
She explained “In my opinion, I agree with the government in the sense of relying on society to confirm a choice of whether we remain in the EU or whether we decide to leave. The reason behind my viewpoint is simply due to the fact that the government needs to contain their social control, if, for whatever reason, they decided to put matters into their own hands and make the decision on behalf of society, there could easily be a moral panic, an instance of public anxiety in response to a problem regarded as threatening the moral standards of society. For those members of society who’s values are against those of the governments decisions would form a lack of trust and create animosity towards the government, overall causing a decline in social cohesion”.

Obviously if the Government have messed up and have not put their house in order and not implemented laws such as reducing asylum seekers or immigrants with no prospects of work then the people that were responsible should step down.
Obviously I do not the full extent why Brexit started as I do not proclaim myself to be an Economist other than what I know was a rise of an EU Budget that the European Parliment were not happy. After all the UK has never voted on being part of the EU, which was formed at the time of the Maastricht treaty in 1993.
According the MPs who have always wanted not to be associated with the EU have said Brussels has been on a mission to expand its powers and sought further political integration, which is far removed from what the UK originally wanted. Britain appear to have decided that this was their one chance to leave a union they never particularly embraced and did not consent to in the first place.
*I for one if I was a Prime Minister would start off with cleaning up the people in power who have no clue what they are doing.
*I would then put a cap on wages and expediture. So if you earn say £1M per annum you should pay for example 2% extra tax per year. People that earn a certain amount of money should pay higher taxes and all footballers should have a wage cap and the rest of the profits these clubs make should go back into society. Any blue chip companies that hits a threshold either should pay higher taxes or return their profits into society.
*I would concentrate on the NHS and Businesses in the UK.
*Finally stop asylum seekers draining our resources ( I would make sure for every asylum seeker there would be a job waiting, if not they would not be allowed in and would have to go to a country that could provide work for them. All immigrants would have to have a job before entering the country and if they were to loose their jobs they would have up to 3 months to find a new one or leave. They would have to have work permits that would have to be updated each month by an employer and if they then left the country and tried coming back without an updated work permit they would be refused entry.
I would make small businesses pay smaller taxes and bigger companies pay more or give back into society with a cap on profits, this would include banks and all blue chip companies.
