The European Union model is incompatible with genuine democracy.
Accountability is strongest when government is no more complex, costly or remote than necessary.
The EU has the very opposite idea and it will forever introduce more problems than it will solve.
Party Leader Chris Mendes campaigning for ‘Leave’ during the EU referendum 2016
What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you use it? To whom are you accountable? How do we get rid of you?

Of the many compelling reasons for withdrawing from the European Union, one stands above all and provides the foundation for much of everything else – democracy.
Laws should not be made nor taxes raised by anyone except our own elected representatives.

Maintain sensible controls on immigration that is sensitive to the needs of local communities and their capacity to accommodate population growth
Encourage the lowering or elimination of trade barriers worldwide and promote global free trade
Maintain well-funded and capable armed forces as a means to defend the nation whenever necessary
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.
