A New Year—A New Beginning – A new political force has been born

The Libertarian Party of the United Kingdom

A new force in British politics has been born. A new party to work for the interests of the United Kingdom and its people.

The Libertarian Party has its official launch today, and will develop a raft of actions and policies over the next few weeks to roll back the draconian and authoritarian style of Government of the past 10 years.

We will be looking for new members, new party officials, new activists, new party workers who believe that Liberty, Freedom, the privacy of your Property and your Prosperity are the cornerstone of the British way of life.

We will be looking to put the Great back into Britain, the United back into the Kingdom, where the 4 nations of the UK can work together on an equal basis, and where the principles of the freedom of the individual are equally matched with responsibility of the individual.

As libertarians we believe in small Government, to only involve Government where it is needed, and will work to roll back the mighty juggernaut of Statism that the Labour, Conservative and Liberal parties have all promoted through the years.

The current 'state must run everything' mentality will be put to rest. The corruption within politics will be rooted out, and those guilty of abusing their positions of power will be brought to book.

We intend to promote a country that believes in itself, believes in the individual, to restore our ancient rights guaranteed in the Magna Carta, The Bill of Rights and Habeas Corpus.

To put a stop to the political indoctrination of our schoolchildren, and to curb the politically correct social engineering so prevalent in our society.

We will oppose any moves, such as the Reform Treaty, to take us into the European Empire. Our stance on Europe will be that 'We love Europe but hate the EU'.

We will work towards working with Europe as a trading partner, (which is all the people of the UK ever signed up for), and to join other nations such as Switzerland, Norway and Iceland, who have strong vibrant economies as trading partners of Europe without the need for full membership.

Our Armed Forces will take a priority in our thinking and our budgets. To restore them in the hearts and minds of the nation as respected and brave, defending our Nation and way of life, and to give them the best tools to do the work that we ask of them.

A land where you and I will politely be referred to as a member of the public, no more to hear the Orwellian use of of the term 'Citizen'. A land where your privacy and independence is paramount, a land where Government has no right to interfere in your lawful business.

To consign to the scrap heap the idea of ID cards, the NIR, the children's register and the other trappings of a totalitarian state, and a tax system that reflects the needs of the public, instead of the greed and dogma of a political ideology.

The official launch of the Libertarian Party is today, but if you have an interest in this new and exciting political alternative to Big Brother government, then keep looking at our web site, as announcements will follow soon.


They hope to bring you a manifesto as soon as possible.

Should you have an interest in joining us here at the Libertarian Party, or would just like to register your support, please us the contact page on lpuk.org

If, however, you want to get involved in policy-making, general discussion and cat-herding, you can register on the Libertarian Party Forum. This is where most of the exciting stuff is happening, so wander over and introduce yourself…

If you want to know what Libertarianism is all about, see the values of the Libertarian in a nice video format.

The message to the other political parties is clear.
The United Kingdom, its Institutions, its Peoples, its Culture, Constitution and history are not for sale.

A New Year – A New Beginning.

Integrity Returns To British Politics

n.b. Please note that some of the policy aspirations mentioned above are entirely my own and not necessarily those which will appear in the Libertarian Party manifesto.

    Please don't use words like 'homeland'. It's been introduced as a pavlovian 'war on terror' mnemonic and belongs in the same dustbin as 'fatherland' and 'motherland'. Try 'Britain' if we're to keep the wretched union. I'd prefer simply 'England'.

    Look forward to it, but also agree 100% with Anonymous above. I agreed with most of the stated aims, but found the particular paragraph Anonymous is referring to repulsive.
    Anti-war Libertarian

    I cannot disagree that certain words have connotations that were unintended.
    However, just as we expect a policeman to defend and protect us at a local level, we have every expectation that our Armed Forces will do the same at a national level.
    Defence in my book is just that, defence not offence. Any country that lacks the ability to defend itself will soon find itself on the receiving end of the bullies of this world.
    I too am anti War, but I would like to be assured that others would think twice before starting one.

    The 'United' Kingdom has no future. Dissolution is the only way to sort out the mess of devolution.
