People's Communist Party
The People's Communist Party is one of the oldest political parties in the United Kingdom. In the past it was in top 3 largest parties in UK, counting over 100 members.
Sometime in 2018 (est), the party changed its orientation from Far-Left to Center-Left.
Introduction and Home Affairs
1.1 The guiding principle of the "People's Communist Party" is equality for all citizens, regardless of status, race, gender, age, wealth or experience. This is the guiding principle in eRepublik that we support and hold true.
1.2 In support of this guiding principle we hold the following core beliefs;
1.2.1 We believe in supporting and guiding the less wealthy and powerful because the UK can only be as strong as its weakest citizen.
1.2.2 We believe in teamwork because collectively we can achieve more than one individual alone.
1.2.3 Everyone should have a say in how this country is run, regardless of wage, political direction or status within the UK.
1.2.4 We believe in putting our principles into practice, in the way we work together in our party, in the way we work together in Congress and, with your help, in the way we work together with you in government.
1.4 We believe in an open democracy. All political decisions and votes affecting the public should be made in the open, except in the most extreme circumstances of national security. All Ministers should be available to respond to members of the public and account for their decisions.
Together we can make the UK great
The People’s Army
2.1 The People’s Army fights against the forces of inequality and exploitation.
2.2 The People’s Army fights for the worker’s interests.
2.3 The People’s Army is a purely voluntary force drawn from members of the People’s Communist Party and communes.
2.4 The People's Army does not fight for the United Kingdom's enemies, unless against imperialism.
Stance on The Economy
3.1 The People's Communist Party believes that the rights of the individual worker and consumer supersede the right of the employer to profit and that the best way to achieve this is to maintain as much state control over the economy as is necessary, for the common good.
3.2 The best way to implement this is to ensure that interests of the workers and consumers are properly represented by the party.
3.3 We believe it is the government's duty to ensure fair trading practices and that a worker's wage should enable a high standard of living, and is also flexible enough to change with the price of consumer goods and in response to market forces.
3.4 Government regulation should prevent the problem, not just suppress it, and to that effect, we will avert market failure with foresight, instead of having and then solving an economic crisis.
3.5 Every worker should have the right to a fair wage, regardless of employer.
3.6 Every citizen should have the right to buy fairly priced goods, undeterred by a monopoly in the target market.
3.7 Every company manager should not obtain huge profits to the detriment of the public or employees, as we believe that every business has responsibility for society.
Leadership and its roles
4.1 The PCP does not believe in a single leader, but rather a spokesperson, through whom the entire experience and collected knowledge of the PCP are expressed. When one votes for the PCP CP candidate for the country, one votes for the PCP as a whole for Prime Minister.
4.2 The PCP chooses its leader through a common consensus about who should be the next leader. The PCP believes competition weakens us through division, rather than through unity.
4.3 The PCP leader is discussed and elected in the forum, and thus PCP members should make it their primary aim to join the forum as soon as possible. This is due to the constant threat of Political Take Over.
Stance on other Parties.
5.1 The PCP is willing to work with all other UK-based parties on policies that we share. We will not, however, go against our ideals in order to support/gain favour with them.
5.2 We are willing to trade ideas and cooperate with other international communist parties without directly influencing their policies or elections. The UK, however, will always remain our first priority.
6.1 We will not influence other countries' General Elections. We believe countries should decide upon their leader, not us. We have no right to influence the result of an election through direct or indirect attempts. The will of the people is all important. The only time we will ever go against this is if the country is at risk from a PTO.
6.2 We will make it our priority to serve the UK, but in the event that a party that we share a close link to calls for help, we will strive to meet their requests when possible.
7.1 The People's Communist Party holds these ideas to be true and solid. We will not go against our constitution unless in times of extraordinary circumstance.
The People's Communist Party boasts a very active membership with many members being more than capable of taking up important government positions. This has been reflected in the past with Ip Lockard being the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, and KIA Sneak being a former Minister of Defence. Since making government for the first time in the month of July 2008, the PCP has had more members in "high" positions than ever.
Though in the past, some members were given specific jobs contributed to specific committees, the Party President bowen199 changed all that. He envisaged greater collectivism and less hierarchy. As a result, ANYONE can help in any committee!

Hall of Fame
The history books on the People's Communist Party are some of the most impressive you shall find on any party. They are dominated by their most respected leaders, politicians and citizens. The UK today is because of their hard work and commitment to the nation. A mantle that leaders today try hard to embody. It is for them that PCP hall of fame was created. In this small way, the party tries to commemorate their dedication to everyone and recognition that PCP would not be where it is without them.
The voting process was done outside the PCP forums in recognition of the fact that those deserving to enter the Hall of Fame belong to the UK as a whole and not just the PCP.
