Vote For Yourself manifesto
George Weiss
George Weiss said party wanted to remove cash from circulation
Belfast should be closed down for a year for redecoration and to implement successful architectural designs decided by its citizens, according to a party manifesto.

The Vote For Yourself Party said it would invite designs for a new "Wonder City" from locally based artists and architects.

The party is fielding three candidates in the 26 November Northern Ireland Assembly election - in three of the four Belfast constituencies.

Party leader George Weiss, also known as Rainbow George, said: "I am astonished at how many people have disappeared from the electoral register.

"People are so disillusioned and so dissatisfied with the party political system."

In terms of what government system should operate in Northern Ireland, he said: "People would elect an executive, but that executive would be there to carry out the wishes of the people.

"This would effectively be government by referendum - we call it preferendum.

"It is power to the people - we need a future where people vote for policies and not for politicians."

The main points of the party manifesto include:

  • People receiving all basic services for free, with no charges for gas, water, electricity, telephones, public transport, healthcare, education and accommodation

  • Declaring all debts null and void

  • Removing cash from circulation, and introducing an electronic city currency called "The Wonder"

  • Allocating land and facilities for co-operative projects.
