A congregation of people for SOLIDARITY and CONSCIENCE for LIFE
British Farming & Industry
British Farming The CDP will campaign for the promotion of British farming. We firmly believe that supporting the British farmer and encouraging the public to buy British food / produce is important for the economy. It is also, in some respects, healthier for the British public.
Ethical Farming We will campaign for ethical farming techniques.
Organic Farming We are keen to support and promote healthy and organic produce. Organic foods help fight caner.
GM Food (Genetically Modified Food) We stand firmly against GM (genetically modified) foods for health reasons.
The Global 'Over Population'Myth We are told that the planet is over populated and that that is the reason why there is so much hunger, a need for GM food and why the planet is heading for desaster. We find this not to be true and we encourage you to research this for yourselves, so that you gain a balanced and informed view. We believe that greed has lead to land being misused and abused (across the globe), and that a lack of morality, corruption and corporate profit are the main causes of our global problems. On top of this, millions of tons of food is being thrown away each year. All these things need to change. Please see our Environmental Concerns page for some more information and support us in our campaign to change the UK for the better.
British Industry We will endeavour to do everything in our power to protect, support and develop our industry.
National Minimum Wage We have always supported the minimum wage becoming a living wage, and we believe that the proposed living wage needs to be at least £10 per hour by the year 2020. We propose to develop this further into a family wage.
VAT The national minimum wage needs reviewing, and we believe that the level should be raised, working in conjunction with a rise in the threshold of VAT, making the national minimum wage more affordable by employers, especially small businesses. This in turn would help lower unemployment.
