Chris Mendes

Party Leader

From his late teens to his now early thirties, Chris has transitioned from being an enthusiastic member of the political left, to now being a highly charged fierce opponent of the left.

Rejecting the over simplified zero-sum narrative from the politicians of his then party, Chris now looks back with a very different point of view.

Pro-Brexit and highly sceptical about government as it is currently formulated, Chris opposes self-centred politicians who insist that heavy-handed big government scheming is the answer to society’s every wrong and the source of society’s every opportunity.

Today Chris is particularly passionate about individual freedom and innovation, the preservation of our heritage and British enlightenment values, and the cleaning up of our democracy and holding politicians properly to account.

EU Referendum 2016

Chris was very active during the EU referendum in 2016, co-running the Leave campaign on the ground in the London Borough of Croydon. For eight months leading up to polling day Chris was handing out leaflets, speaking to passers-by, knocking on doors and speaking at a few public meetings seeking to persuade his fellow local citizens to vote Leave.

Outside of Politics

Professionally Chris is a self-employed contract software engineer specialising in digital media for a wide-range of businesses.

Chris was a TA Reservist for several years, first with B Company, the London Regiment (PWRR) and later 41 Signal Squadron, 38 Signals Regiment. Attaining the rank of Lance Corporal, Chris became a Physical Training Instructor responsible for maintaining the physical fitness of his squadron.

A sporty personality, Chris plays 5-a-side football while supporting Arsenal FC, as well as being a keen table tennis and chess player.

About Us

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.
