Universal Basic Income (UBI) is a policy that would give every citizen a regular income to cover living costs, regardless of their means and their employment status. Proponents argue that it would reduce poverty and increase working conditions, wellbeing and creativity while critics maintain that it is too expensive or even immoral. UBI is supported by the Green Party, the Liberal Democrats and SNP and the pandemic seems to have increased its popular support. In 2020, a poll by YouGov found support for UBI at 51%, with only 24% against. The same year, 170 MPs and Lords signed a proposal urging the government to introduce UBI during the coronavirus pandemic.
