PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger

“In order for a “Market” to “Exist”
there must be Buyers as well as Sellers” -Giles Wynne
 
The Radical
18th March 2018
 
This is also referred to a Perfect Competition.
 
“Capitalism kills Competition”
 
” Most Food Comes From Farms so Farming is More than a “Rural Affair” – Giles Wynne
 
“Therefore  a Socialist Britain must bring back the Tenant Farmers, the Family Farm, 
 
Smallholdings and Local Produce Markets including those from Allotments”
 
But a Socialist must work also within the Capitalist Economy that exists !
 
Farming Cooperatives Failed – But Farms and Farmers should Cooperate.
—————————————————————–
Karl Marx discussed the working of the market in the presence of a controlled economy sometimes referred to as a command economy in the literature.
 
The socialist market economy (SME) is the economic system and model of economic development employed in the People’s Republic of China. 
 
The system is based on the predominance of public ownership and state-owned enterprises within a market economy.
 
 The term “socialist market economy” was first used during the 14th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 1992 to describe the goal of China’s economic reforms. 
 
Originating in the Chinese economic reforms initiated in 1978 that sought to integrate China into the global market economy, the socialist market economy represents a preliminary or “primary stage” of developing socialism.
 
 Despite this, many Western commentators have described the system as a form of state capitalism
 
————————————————————————————————
state capitalism
a political system in which the state has control of production and the use of capital 
…. does not only imply a capitalism system 
 
but also State Socialism 
 
a socialist political system where essential commodities and services are “nationalised” and run for the benefit of the people. 
 
Service is everything and it is not essential for them to make a profit.
———————————————————————————————————
A Socialist Market Economy (Agriculture)
 
At present there are only three ways of getting into producing food on farms
 
Matrimony Patrimony and Parsimony
 
You marry a farmers daughter, your fathers/ relations  farm and being frugle with Money 
 
The two most important hurdles to enter the industry are :-
 
1.High Land Prices 
2. The Attitude of and High Bank Interest.
 
To solve this a Socialist Government needs a Government controlled Agricultural Bank
and a  national compulsorily buy up scheme of land that is being under used.
 
County Council farm sales should not only be stopped but developed.
 
Mixed Family farming is more environmentally friendly
 
More 5- 10 acre Smallholdings should be allowed and encouraged  by local authorities 
 for retirees, hobbists and market gardeners.
 
So that Markets (other than supermarkets) can “exist”
 
Some farms will never be sustainable or viable without financial support.
 
But with support can produce food economically way above subsistence level 
 
Only Ruminants eat Vegetation and convert it into food for humans.
 
Depending on the market is unfair for farmers,
 because they must take decisions so far in advance.
 
A farmer cannot lay off a beef or dairy herd as Ford does its work force.
 
When an animal is “finished” it must be sold at the current market price, whereas if a supermarket does not sell a tin of beans this week it can stay on ther shelf until next week.
 
So there needs to be some Socialist Government involvement
 in controlled Guaranteed Prices and Marketting Boards.
 
Supermarkets must be regulated better to find out how Government 
support to farmers ends up in their pockets
 
The writer is also recommending an Early Retirement Scheme for Farmers 
to give an opportunity to Young People to enter the Industry
 
Retirees can give experience talks and be mentors under supervision.
 
There needs to be a Socialist Government responsibility to prevent useable land
 used for tax avoidance.
 
Huge profits have been made on land. 
 
Speculation on land is said to be the lubricant of local Government eg. Poulson 
Who really benefits from planning permission ?
 
This then becomes the job for the lawyers.
 
Transparency and Traceability is vital,
 because food is not traceable if you dont tell the consumer where it have come from.
 
Finally we have DEFRA –
 
The DEPARTMENT of the ENVIRONMENT FOOD AND RURAL AFFAIRS, 
 
with A MINISTER RESPONSIBLE.
 
BUT MOST FOOD COMES FROM FARMS –
SO FARMING IS MORE THAN A RURAL AFFAIR -GILES WYNNE
 
– WHAT WE REALLY NEED A MINISTER FOR FOOD 
 
separate from the Environment but responsible and accountable specifically for FOOD 
to the Producers and Consumers
