Today, at 11 a.m. on the 11th of the 11th, The Albion Alliance is launched.
This is a coordination of all the groups, projects and campaigns designed to:
1. Get Labour out;
2. Press for the EU referendum.
It is a grass-roots movement to pressure MPs and PPCs directly to be signatories to this policy, as well as creating an expanding base of people wishing to control their own destinies.
The front page of the Albion Alliance site tells us:
The Albion Alliance is a non aligned pressure group of like minded patriots, coordinating with all other like-minded groups in the UK, thoroughly sick to death of what’s happened to our nation in the past decade and tired of having no voice to effect change or to affect the policies being pursued at Westminster.
The Albion Alliance is a cross-party, grass-roots movement wishing to rebuild a solid foundation for the future of our country – a foundation built on freedom, self determination and sheer common sense, with loyalty to this country and its people being above party politics.
This is my contribution to the Alliance website.
Over the past 40 years Britain has been led, against the wishes of a silent majority its people, into a political union by a discredited political elite without so much as a single vote on the issue from the public. The last time the public were consulted, in 1975, it was for a simple trading partnership called the EEC. No-one has agreed to a political union where the law of this land will be made by unelected officials in a far off land.
We believe that the forthcoming General Election should be the catalyst that forces that referendum. A referendum that simply asks the public:
“Should the United Kingdom remain in a political union with the other member states of the EU. Yes or No?”
In order to force this issue to the top of the agenda, not in another 5 years, but as a priority for any incoming government, we will be asking every PPC to unreservedly commit to putting the country before party by signing up to the principles laid out in this Albion Alliance.
We are not asking any PPC to abandon his or her own party, nor to set up a party in opposition, but to simply put the people whose votes they are asking for, and their country, before all else, irrespective of the Party Whip.
When they become a signatory to the Albion Alliance, they are pledging to force this referendum, they will be asked to carry the Albion Alliance logo on their campaign website and literature, so that you the voter will know that if you vote for this candidate, they have pledged to granting the public that all important voice on the future of these Islands, a United Kingdom, a land once known as Albion.
The public will then know when they are making that all important decision on who to vote for, a vote for a PPC who is pledged to the Albion Alliance means a candidate who is committed to a referendum, where we hope to find a majority of A.A. MP’s across all political parties once the election is over. Such an alliance would also consider policies that are likewise mutually compatable and can be agreed with the members.
I have already made that pledge, and I urge you to write to your current MP, and then to all the PPC’s intending to stand for election in your constituency urging them to make the pledge to the A.A., The Albion Alliance.
Thank you.Ian Parker-Joseph
Leader, Libertarian Party UK & PPC Torfaen
We hope that many people will support this initiative to make our MP’s responsible for listening to the views of the unheard majority.
If you are one of the many millions who have indicated that you want a binding referendum on the EU, whether you are simply a voter, a PPC or an MP, sign up to the Albion Alliance today and pledge your support. Let the people have their say.
Please spread the word on this new Alliance far and wide, its your future at stake.
