SCOTLAND: Greens Manifesto 2015 refers to BIG

Scottish Greens has published their manifest for General Election on 7th May. It says: ‘In the longer term we will build a welfare system which removes the stigma of benefit, helps end the “poverty trap” and promotes equality. A Citizen’s Income is emblematic of this approach. A Citizen’s Income will require a reform programme replace almost all benefits apart from disability payments with a simple regular payment to everyone – children, adults and pensioners. The beginning of this system already exist with state pensions and Child Benefit.’
