Our mission

We believe that now is the time for the United Kingdom to reform its benefit system and to base it on a Universal Basic Income (also known as a Citizen’s Income).

Universal Basic Income would provide financial security for all, so that everyone has the resources they need to fulfil their potential. We urge others to express support for the principle of a Basic Income with the aim of making it an issue in the next General Election. Basic Income is a regular payment made to every individual, not means tested, non-withdrawable and without work conditions. It would :    

  • Guarantee everyone a secure base which ensures that work always pays    
  • Replace the complex benefits system with a scheme fit for the 21st century
  • Provide us all, including people who need extra income related to sickness, disability and housing, with the freedom to develop and contribute our talents, and the dignity we all deserve.

With your support we can press politicians to back this idea and make it a key campaign issue at the next General election.

If you agree with us please endorse the above statement and we would also love to hear why you support a basic income.

    The tool of government’s(all) is ‘Rule And Divide the masses’ to allow the 1 percent elite to remain in controll, left right it doesn’t matter, please don’t use the word ‘progressive’ within this Orwellian nightmare of which we live, if George sorros is truly progressive I will eat John Mcafee’s dick on live TV. It is why we are in this situation now. And will always be if we don’t change a fundamental. Ignorance will ALWAYS prevail with the current welfare model. If ALL have a BASIC INCOME government’s will have to start doing there job properly for the first time in ‘ages’ No more demonising of the poor as ‘scroungers’ and slightly less demonising of the rich for there quest for greed power and control. Its a Win Win situation. Come on, how much does a single human being need to be relatively happy. OK have goals ff you like, A million, perhaps 999 million(mother didn’t love me enough category) . Some people work harder due to physical genetic advantages, brain function or perhaps even sexual persuasion. Whatever your talent maybe. Some people have no arms or legs, some are born docile due to natural causes or chemical poisoning of pharmcuticals. Lets not forget the 1962 thalidomide disaster, one of the darkest episodes in pharmaceutical research history. And some ignorant wanker will inform that these victims(of pharmaceutical greed) are scroungers. They were never compensated, how can you compensate a loss of limbs? Pain? anxiety? and if that’s not enough demonisation by governmental propaganda>society which leads to self harm (if one has the ability to even achieve that). Comments from the working classes, middle, progressive left and right, rich or poor. are ALL guilty and Ive witnessed all these comments in social and professional circles. Clearly the problem is not only connected to money – BASIC income could provide an extension to humanity, especially to those on the cusp of empathy. The next step is spiritual education but not in the sense of institutional religion’s. The path of ones connection with all things. And to the skeptics, don’t worry you will still have all those things that make you feel secure and human ie: rape , murder, propaganda, antifa, other lives matter, conservatives, socialists, justice worriers of the sorros kind, Zionism, islam, jerremy corbyn, tony blair, gay Nazi movement, legacy Nazis, gender fluidity of the exponential kind. We will still hold ALL of these gems in order to hold humanity together and yet so apart(rule and divide : remember) Yet we will have moved humanity a tiny tiny step into a more intelligent, humane consensus. Trust me that’s the worst that can happen through immediate implementation of a BASIC INCOME.

    Because I think it is fairer than what we have now and that it would lead to a more socially progressive society where people can live more fulfilled lives.

    There is compelling evidence that UBI provides substantial benefit to human health and wellbeing.

    Rutger Bergman’s (utopia for realists) book has me absolutely convinced. Read it and make up your own mind. It’s compelled me to do everything I can to support this for the UK.

    It would free people to pursue personal interests, promote equality and deliver a system that’s more suitable for a modern society.
  • endorsed 2017-12-31 15:17:20 +0000
    It would be easier to be entrepreneur, to be free to think and be creative, group together to create something big (eventually), without worrying about not being able to afford basic needs in the meantime. I basically would like to be creative but don’t have saved money to support my own endeavours. It should be an income which is reasonably higher than minimum salary. It can come from both reforming current wealthfare systems and from increase taxes especially of the wealthiest people.

    I believe a reform of the current welfare system is long overdue and this system would make work pay while providing an equal and fair system for those that can’t as well as providing a stable ground for people that may want to train for a dream job or a better suited job.

    I grew up in a very remote area and was resigned to a life of uselessness for a very long time until I met my girlfriend and she took me away. If I had had a universal basic income, I would’ve been able to move to a city and get a job and run my own life. I feel like I’ve wasted so many years because you don’t have a chance without any work and it wasn’t my fault that there was none where I was. It’s way too late for this to still be being talked about, we need a UBI and we needed it 20 years ago. Tax the rich more heavily to fund it, nobody needs more than 10 million in the bank, ever. Just make this happen. Bridge the wage gap. Stop the borderline abuse from Universal Credit. Everyone has a right to something. If money has to run the world we all have a human right to be part of it. Give everyone a UBI!!

    Fairness & financial equality for all. We all deserve the right to fulfil our creative potential without constant financial stress.
  • endorsed via 2017-12-27 10:06:23 +0000
    There is an evidence base of success to support it. My own personal experience backs it up and by valuing people and encouraging their potential, we make a paradigm shift, putting society on an upward trajectory trusting in and having expectations of, positive compassionate behaviour rather than the negative mean mindset of the current system.

    It’s just not OK for so much inequality to exist in modern Britain or anywhere else. Basic income that realistically covers expenses that provide what is needed for health and wellbeing, security and a home, is just a human right…homelessness needs to end, and a complete rethink of how we give money to people…nurses should be paid as much if not more than bankers because what they do just feels so worthy and important in society for example….I could go on, but I think that covers some of it…
