John Rees-Evans is one of the United Kingdom's foremost proponents of Direct Democracy - a system that will allow voters to propose, engage in discussion and debate, and vote on new laws. As such, John continually canvasses the constituency, seeking insights on how voters in Merthyr Tydfil and Aberdare would like John to best represent them, if elected.
As things stand, while not every voter in the constituency will agree with everything, the following policies represent Rees-Evans' current understanding of the constituencies' and, where appropriate, the nation's, current legislative failings, and therefore constitute his priorities.
If you feel that there are important policies that will enjoy the support of the constituency that are not reflected in this list, please notify John using the contact form.

The UK government should enact legislation to legally guarantee every British resident access to a bank account, ensuring financial inclusivity and safeguarding individual liberties. This policy aims to promote financial security and prevent discrimination based on personal views, fostering a more inclusive and democratic society.
The United Kingdom's commitment to safeguarding public health is of paramount importance. With the emergence of various vaccines during the pandemic, it is essential to maintain a stringent approach to protect the well-being of its citizens. This policy advocates for the UK government to ban the usage of vaccines that have not undergone the complete testing process, focusing on ensuring the highest standards of safety and efficacy in vaccination programs.
The existence of cash in Britain shall enjoy perpetual legal protection, recognising its fundamental importance in preserving financial freedom, privacy, and ensuring inclusivity within the nation's economy. The following policy outlines the reasons for upholding the use of cash and the benefits it brings to the citizens and the broader society.
The British Government's current policy aims to phase out conventional vehicles in favour of electric vehicles (EVs) to address environmental concerns. While this intention is commendable, it is essential to reevaluate the approach to maintain personal freedom of movement and physical independence for citizens amidst the environmental challenges posed by EV battery manufacture.
The UK government shall refrain from imposing lockdown measures during pandemics unless there is incontrovertible evidence demonstrating clear public benefit derived from such actions.
The UK government must act decisively to preserve the innocence of young people by prohibiting the practice of requiring teachers to discuss changing ideas of sexual norms with primary school children. While it is crucial to promote understanding and respect for diverse communities, such discussions at an early age can be detrimental to the healthy development and well-being of young minds. This policy aims to safeguard the emotional and psychological welfare of children, prioritise their innocence, and respect the rights and responsibilities of parents as primary educators.
Recognising that personal perceptions of self-identity can be fluid during the formative adolescent years, the government has a responsibility to protect impressionable pre-adults from potentially irreversible decisions. This policy advocates for the restriction of discussing gender re-assignment surgery with individuals below the age of adulthood (18 years) to safeguard their physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
In the modern age of information and technological advancement, the United Kingdom stands at a crossroads where political reform is essential to ensure a more inclusive and representative government. This policy advocates for the replacement of Representative Democracy with Direct Democracy, a system that empowers citizens to participate actively in decision-making processes. Direct Democracy fosters greater transparency, accountability, and responsiveness, enabling citizens to have a direct say in the policies that affect their lives.
In the face of escalating tensions and conflicts in Ukraine, it is imperative for the British government to take a decisive stance in advocating for peace. As a staunch advocate of global stability, the UK has a moral and strategic duty to support peaceful resolutions in the region.
