Our Mission

Defending National Self-Government

Safeguarding the peoples’ right to elect and un-elect those that make the laws without supranational interference

Pro-Brexit, we are enthusiastically in favour of leaving the European Union

Yes to UK law made exclusively by democratically elected British citizens

Yes to British courts free from jurisdiction and interference by overseas courts

Yes to positive co-operation with friendly and allied nations without political union

No to remaining in or rejoining the European Union

No to membership of any organisation with political or legal supremacy over the UK

No to open borders policy undermining the nation’s frontier

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.
