In the UK as in all countries of the world there is no shortage of opportunities for success in life, but to seize them you need money, which is why the poor remain poor and the rich are increasingly richer. Low-income people have no assets and sometimes have low incomes, which severely limits their access to bank loans and prevents them from investing in a better future. With the Covid 19 pandemic, it is more than ever necessary to find innovative solutions to reduce social inequalities and give everyone a chance to succeed while preserving the country's public finances.

This is why I am submitting to the Prime Minister an original idea on which I have reflected and which aims to create a new system of national solidarity in three stages:

  • First of all, the introduction of a universal monthly tax of 1 pound paid by all citizens from the age of 18.
  • Then, the benefit of the tax (several million pounds) will be paid to a fund which must distribute it to people in difficult social situations.
  • Finally, each beneficiary will receive a share of 400,000 pounds which can be used solely and exclusively in investments such as housing, training for well-paid jobs and the creation or takeover of a business. The fund will not provide liquidity, but will act as a bank to pay expenses related to beneficiaries' projects.

All over the UK, all low-income people in difficulty will be placed on a waiting list according to the following criteria:

  • The family situation, that is to say the fact of having children, especially for single-parent families.
  • A modest standard of living, that is to say a low or zero income, especially for the unemployed, the homeless, farmers, poor retirees, the disabled, undereducated or precarious workers.
  • Living in a disadvantaged area, i.e. living in the suburbs or in a rural area.

A “large solidarity fund” will act as an intermediary to redistribute the money collected on behalf of people in need. The fund will have to operate from the state budget with a modest budget line using local resources from other agencies. He will ensure:

  • Update the waiting list of beneficiaries on the basis of information provided by associations, public services, local communities and social security administrations.
  • Receive and inform the beneficiaries who must remain secret until the last moment.
  • Listening to their needs, offering them adequate and tailor-made solutions, recording, preparing and executing their decisions.
  • Increase the number of beneficiaries thanks to donations from individuals, companies or government institutions.

For example, if around half of the UK's population, or 30 million citizens pay the £ 1 tax, the monthly £ 30 million profit will be split among 75 beneficiaries who will each have a share of £ 400,000. Thus, each year, 900 low-income people and their families (estimate) will benefit from this tax to carry out their future projects (housing, training, entrepreneurship, etc.).

"The Diouldeenne tax or great solidarity tax" will allow Great Britain to achieve political, social, economic and budgetary objectives, in particular:

  • The transformation of poor benefit recipients into employees and entrepreneurs, which means repairing and restoring the social lift.
  • Shrinking working class and growing middle class, which means less spending and more revenue for state and social security budgets.
  • The increase in the purchasing power of the underprivileged population and therefore of household consumption on which a large part of the national wealth produced each year is based.
  • The additional benevolence of the state towards the citizens who suffer by giving them an unexpected chance to come out and thus strengthen the confidence of the population in the government.

Any UK citizen with an income (salary, annuity, social benefit or other) will have to pay this tax but only those who need it most will benefit. In addition, this device is painless enough not to impact the purchasing power of the British, people with minimum wages will see their monthly wages go from 1524.52 to 1523.52 pounds and their annual wages go from 18294.24 to 18282.24 pounds.

At the ridiculous cost of £ 1 per month and £ 12 per year for each person, the Solidarity Fund will offer significant financial capacity to citizens in difficulty and their families to buy housing, create or buy a business, train in trades highly qualified with good salaries or to invest in the field that is close to their hearts, which is why I urge the Prime Minister to quickly implement this policy with legislation should be adopted at the start of the year for implementation by mid-2021.

To intelligently overcome the heavy impact of the health crisis, it is urgent to emancipate the most vulnerable through work and revive the British economy while keeping the state budget. That is why I believe that this solution can serve the general interest in the most economical and efficient way possible. I therefore propose a flexible automatic solidarity system applicable across the UK and around the world to tackle social injustice and break the vicious cycle of poverty. To make this idea a reality, it is up to the British leaders, in particular the Prime Minister, to take the necessary measures to apply the Diouldeenne tax or great solidarity tax.

I also ask each reader to sign the petition and raise awareness among those around them and on social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).
