Life is better with choices
We each live very different lives with different desires, talents and ambitions. The person in the end who knows which decisions are best for you, is you.
It’s time for a completely new emphasis in British politics that is fit for the 21st century.
We believe the primary goal of politics is not to impose decisions on you, but to maximise your ability to make your own.
Government is better when it listens
Too many of our politicians do not care about the thoughts and feelings of the people, only their own opinions and professional goals.
The people are spoken to like children, rarely trusted with raw debate, and their wisdom expressed in election results challenged. In the age of information and digital connectivity, it is an outdated elitist culture that is offensive and unhealthy.
We will fight a long battle to establish inside our political institutions a more civilised and humble attitude because we believe the people are the masters, not the servants.
Where choice is in short supply
And why radical change is urgent
A confident bottom-up society shaped by the choices, innovation and good judgement of the people, with overriding government power that is cautious in nature, limited and robustly held in check, because the people are the masters, not the servants, and the true source of our success.
Party Vision Statement
To revitalise and defend freedom, liberty and democracy, the historic but neglected foundations of our country, as the surest and most reliable path to individual and collective happiness and prosperity.
Party Mission Statement
The people are the masters, not the servants
Party leader Chris Mendes outlines the campaign (6 minutes)
I believe in the wisdom and courage of the people, not the politicians, and today they have too much power while the people have too little.
Taxed to the hilt, over-regulated, our contrary opinions and referendum votes vilified, it’s high time we reined in the governing class and trusted the people to choose more freely and steer us all to a more inspiring place.

For the Country
You should be free to choose how the country is governed.
We believe in independence and self-government so you can elect and un-elect those that make the laws that govern you.
Government spending and debt is out of control. Like any household, the country must live within its means. You should not pay for the irresponsibility of politicians.
For the Local Community
You should be free to choose how your community evolves.
Major decisions about your local area should not be made in Westminster. We have a plan for more local and tailored policy-making so you have your rightful say.
Above all you should feel safe. We must restore the visible police presence on our streets we once had.
For the Family
You should be free to choose what is best for your family.
We believe in the widest range and variety of school and college education, rejecting a state monopoly, so you the parent can freely choose the curriculum and environment for your children.
We want radical welfare reform to stop the trapping of people in poverty and free them to pursue a life on their own terms rather than on the government’s.
For the Individual
You should be free to exercise your inalienable civil liberties.
Never should you be persecuted, let alone prosecuted, for expressing a contrary opinion and risk causing offence. We believe in absolute freedom of speech.
We need a new voting system in order to strengthen the influence of your vote when choosing your representative.
I believe free speech and civilised debate is essential for improving our lives. Our political class have abandoned the values that made us a leading nation.
This is why we desperately need something new and principled like the Foundation Party.

This damaging action from a tunnel-visioned government cannot continue. New leadership and a new approach required.
Those that wish to watch the BBC should voluntarily pay for it, just like any other service. Those that don’t wish to, should not be forced to.

Lockdown must end now
While an initial lockdown to prevent the overwhelming of the NHS made sense, a continued lockdown does not.
The lockdown today is doing extremely little to tackle the virus and is instead succeeding in destroying businesses, jobs, and the livelihoods and mental health of millions of families.
COVID-19 does not effect everybody equally. It is a limited group comprising of the elderly and those with underlying health conditions who are especially vulnerable.
We should do everything we can to shield the vulnerable. But everybody else should be free to choose to either self-isolate or take the risk on a well-informed basis.
Founded by grassroots campaigners, we are working to establish a new political force offering a genuinely alternative way forward for the country for the consideration of the people.
With politics so detached from the people, we are pro-Brexit and want radically empowered citizens. We especially value and vow to fight for national self-government, freedom, liberty and democracy.
