Brexit Party releases election manifesto

Brexit Party releases election manifesto

The Brexit Party have released their election manifesto ahead of the UK going to the polls on December 12.

Nigel Farage, the leader of the Brexit Party, promised a "political revolution that puts ordinary people first" as he launched the manifesto on Friday. Some key pledges include;

  • Scrapping VAT on fuel bills
  • Plant millions of trees to absorb carbon emissions
  • Ban the exporting of waste to other countries for it to be burned
  • Phase-out the BBC licence fee
  • Scrapping the HS2 rail project
  • Making changes and adding guidelines to the Supreme Court
  • Provide free wi-fi on all public transport
  • Ensure no provision of the NHS

The full manifesto can be found at www.thebrexitparty.org/contract/

The party's key policy is of course on Brexit - the Brexit Party is now simply promising that there will be no extension to the transition period after Brexit. Previously, the party had advocated a no-deal exit from the European Union.

The party has also revealed policies in its manifesto to reduce immigration - Mr Farage said he wanted to see immigration numbers down to "around about 50,000 people a year."
