Its been a long and interesting weekend. I travelled north to meet my colleagues in the Albion Alliance, spending 2 days thrashing out some fairly detailed ideas and plans on how we move the campaign forward in the wake of a totally indecisive election.
Although I am not going to give precise detail yet of what we have decided, the key pointers will be around the known events, and the re-run of the general election that cannot be so far away that it is already a distant blip on the horizon, but definitely in view.
Our next steps will include:
Updating the database to reflect the election results.
Preparing materials to use in the campaign.
Renewing our efforts on obtaining an EU Referendum, and inviting the new MP’s to sign the Albion Alliance pledge. (You know, It’s never too late for an MP to make a personal commitment to his/her constituents, especially as many are not going to like the outcome of the coalition talks).
Preparing for the re-ratification of the Lisbon Treaty next month, and additing pressure to turn this into a referendum, thereby getting the parties to honour their manifesto promises.
Doing as much groundwork as possible on preparing for the next general election, when any coalition comes to an end, or fails to command the confidence of the house.
Whilst we are looking forward to putting into action our plans for what we do know about, we are also excited about the fact that there will be lots of adhoc events during the coming year that can be exploited to the benefit of this campaign. In the words of someone famous at some time or other, ‘Events always overtake planning’.
Despite the promises of transparency, a new kind of politics, much will depend on the outcome of any coalition talks and horsetrading currently going on behind closed doors, and we will revise our plans based upon that outcome.
Our focus will be on the lack of democracy, real democracy in a free and self governing UK, rather than the faux choices being put forward by the progressives, which are designed to lead and trick you into ever closer ties with the EU, and the regionalisation of the UK with progressive localism. Many of you have already worked this out, and those followers of Carswell and Hannan will know that their ‘Plan’ is just that, localism within a Regionalised UK, governed from Brussels, with party selected & appointed community leaders to keep you on the right path and in the dark.
My view on all the talk of PR is also part of this progressive communitarianism. It is designed so that no single party can ever take us back to where we were before the UK was taken apart, the left/right pendulum stops swinging, a continual form of political suspension.
We are sick of being led down roads that the majority don’t want, so there is one thing that our political leaders can be assured of, the Albion Alliance is not going to go away, we are gearing up and moving into the next phase. Watch out for some new developments from us over the coming weeks and months.
