New articles on the Croydon Constitutionalists web site.
The Coulsdon and Purley Debating Society held a debate in early September on the subject of “Priti Patel is right: it’s time to bring back the death penalty”. To be fair the Home Secretary had walked back that statement, but it was a good opportunity to discuss capital punishment.
Mike's speech is now up on our site at http://croydonconstitutionalists.uk/debating-society-priti-patel-is-right-its-time-to-bring-back-the-death-penalty/
“Punishments work, and punishments deter crime. Today we are losing about an extra 330 people year than when we had capital punishment”
The Society planned to hold two debates in September but ran out of time on the night. One was planned on “A small income tax increase is justified to fund social care”.
Mike's prepared text is also up on our site. http://croydonconstitutionalists.uk/debating-society-a-small-income-tax-increase-is-justified-to-fund-social-care/
“the total tax take has never been lower than 32.5% of GDP and never higher that 37.5% of GDP. Mostly these fluctuations are around the periods of recessions as the economy rapidly changes. Higher tax rates don’t increase tax revenue. People simply refuse to pay it”
Do you have an article in you? Get in touch and let's see if we can host it on our site.
