The Wings of UK Politics #2: Capitalist Right

The Rights, Capitalists, Free Marketeers and all others that believe in right wing ideologies.

The Rights believe that everyone has an opportunity to become rich and wealthy. The believe that competition is necessary for economic growth and they also believe that if you are successful in education you will be rich, wealthy and achieve your dream, whilst if you do poor in education you will fail and have to help someone else reach their dream by working for them. 

In The United Kingdom the main and most popular right wing party are The Conservatives. In general The Conservatives believe that we should deal with the debt and deficit before anything else so we can avoid another financial crash. Conservatives believe the best way to do this is to cut 'non essential expenditures' such as less important welfare benefits.

In an far right, laissezz-faire government everything would be privately owned and the government would not intervene and have no regulations with businesses therefore increasing the economy and jobs in the country. Pay scales would also be different and the workers would have no unions protecting them. Poverty and homelessness may also increase and the wealth inequality gap would grow wider and wider in an far right wing government.

Under a laissez-faire approach, all essential services such as education and healthcare would be privatised and owned by companies rather than being owned by the state.

There are pros and cons to living in a far right Capitalist country. The pros would be; high employment, democracy, increase in GDP and economic competition whilst the cons would be; high poverty and homelessness due to poor pay and workers rights and privatisation of essential services meaning that money decides life or death.
