only the nobleness of a nation depends upon the presence of this
national consciousness, but also the nobleness of each individual
citizen. Our dignity and rectitude are proportioned to our sense of
relationship with something great, admirable, pregnant with high
possibilities, worthy of sacrifice, a continual inspiration to
self-repression and discipline by the presentation of aims larger and
more attractive to our generous part than the securing of personal ease
'Impressions of Theophrastus Such' GEORGE ELIOT
1 NATIONAL UNITY
|1.1 Our philosophy |
Better a UN1TED ENGLAND than a DISUNITED BRITAIN. We are a 'One-nation'
party. We believe that if a nation is a coherent whole, it follows that
its citizens are bound together by ties of mutual respect and
responsibility. We are dependent upon each other mutually to create a
great society and culture. As a people we are not a random collection
of individuals who happen to be living in the same geographical area
called 'England'. We are a nation of interdependent people who share a
common history and a common destiny. We believe in the nationalist
philosophy of emphasizing NATIONAL UNITY. Our approach to domestic
affairs is therefore to stress UNITY rather than DIVISION between
existing interest groups, classes, etc.
1.2 'Independence Dividend'
There will be a short-term financial gain for English people from
independence, perhaps £20 BILLION (£20,000,000,000) a year in the case
of Scotland. This money could, for example, be 'ring-fenced' for our
English National Health Service.
1.3 Balancing regional prosperity
We are concerned about the 'North : South Divide' and the more general
problem of economically depressed areas throughout England.
Independence will allow us to transfer our attention from Europe,
Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to the NEEDY AREAS OF ENGLAND. We
will build the fastest Rail Link in the world between Folkstone, Kent,
and Newcasle-upon-Tyne, via London and Manchester. Being the inventors
of the railway, we will work to keep such rail links faster than any
1.4 Ending English class differences
England must finally become a CLASSLESS SOCIETY. We must get rid of the
"Them and Us" divisions which are unfair, and which still obstruct full
social and economic cohesion. It is ironic that it is we who have
created new and relatively classless societies in the USA, Canada,
Australia, and New Zealand, but continue to suffer ourselves from the
residue of historical class differences. Many of our policies, such as
those about education, will aim to eliminate class differences. It
should be recognized that the Labour Party has always sought to exploit
class differences, not eliminate them.
1.5 Industrial conflict
The development of Socialism, and its misconceived attack on market
economics or "Capitalism", led during the twentieth century to a main
political party divide in Britain between the "private enterprise" of
the Conservative Party and the various manifestations of anti-private
enterprise by the Labour Party. This divide encouraged a breakdown in
communication between worker and management. Over-powerful trade unions
maintained inefficient trade practices and held irresponsible and
wasteful strikes. On the other side of the industrial divide, problems
arose from an 'elitist', insensitive, and undemocratic attitude of an
uncommunicative management, often educated differently from the bulk of
their employees. Things got so bad in the 1970s that the nation as a
whole learned its lesson, and we realized that our prosperity and
quality of life depends upon a UNIFIED APPROACH to our commerce and
1.6 Social cohesion and interdependence
Social cohesion in England has been lost in the course of the last 60
years. The Second World War, in which we could easily have been
conquered, caused great danger and hardship for our people, but it also
created increased social cohesion. This was then lost as a result of
various undesirable developments, such as the breakdown in traditional
family life, the impact of technological innovations like television,
greater state intervention in peoples' lives, comprehensive building
redevelopment by government aimed at fast postwar reconstruction,
indiscriminate demolition of old buildings and towns, increased social
and physical mobility, and mass immigration and an associated policy of
'multi-culturalism'. It will be one of our main aims to reestablish the
CULTURE AND SOCIAL COHESION of the immediate post-WW2 and similar
periods, and so mitigate the adverse effects of these developments.
I should die, think only this of me: that there's some corner of a
foreign field that is for ever England. There shall be in that rich
earth a richer dust concealed; a dust whom England bore, shaped, made
aware, gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam, a body of
England's, breathing English air, washed by the rivers, blest by suns
'The Soldier' RUPERT BROOK
2 ENGLISH CULTURE
| 2.1 Our philosophy
We believe that the dominant influences on culture in England since the
war have been a destructive mixture of individualism and consumerism,
and, more recently, state sponsored 'multi-culturalism'. We have lost
national, regional and local cultural distinctiveness, and lost a great
deal of social cohesion as a result. The time has come to restore an
exclusive ENGLISH CULTURE at every level to which people are happy to
conform. Such a culture should balance the best of the past and the
best of what is new. It should be independent of other national
2.2 A classless culture
One of the difficulties of talking about a future English culture is
that when we look back we see either middle or working class cultures.
Neither can be the basis for the future because we do not want a class
based society. In establishing a modern, solid English culture, neither
the middle nor working class culture of the past is acceptable on its
own. Both have benefits. We must forge a new ENGLISH CLASSLESS CULTURE
by, for example, combining the concern for education of English middle
class culture with the 'living for the moment' quality of English
working class culture.
2.3 Mono-culturalism, not multiculturalism
An excess of liberal extremism in the United Kingdom led not only to
open door mass immigration, but also to the notion that immigrants
should be helped by government to maintain their culture while living
in England. This policy saw society as a collection of independent and
isolated groups, each with its own way of life. This policy has given
official approval to ghettos in our inner cities, and encouraged social
tensions and conflicts. The political independence of England will be
the ideal moment to jettison this policy, and for us to restore a
SINGLE, EXCLUSIVE ENGLISH CULTURE as a basis for government policy.
English people have been brought up on an almost exclusive diet of
American popular cinema and television, to the point where we are now
unable to easily distinguish English from American culture. This has
produced benefits, but it also threatens our own standards and values,
bearing in mind the grave shortcomings of the American mentality and
way of life. We will intervene to positively RESTRICT THE INFLUENCE of
American culture. We want England to be the ideal model for the world,
including for the USA, instead of the USA being an unwelcomed cultural
model for England.
2.5 English family life
It is now clear that the weakening of family life has been one of the
main destructive force in our society since the 1960s. The media have
played a major role in this process. We will do all government can do
to restore our TRADITIONAL FAMILY LIFE.
2.6 The role of men and women
We believe the traditional role of men and women should serve as the
IDEAL MODEL for our culture, and we will discourage the imported
American idea that MOTHERS should have the same career aspirations as
men. We will restore conditions where families with children can live
on a single modest income.
2.7 Our young people
The way we bring up our children greatly influences our culture in the
future. We do not believe in making children worldly wise (and
world-weary) as early in life as possible. We will encourage parents to
provide an ordered and protective environment so that children can
enjoy a prolonged period of INNOCENCE.
2.8 Our old people
Our society has forgotten that wisdom comes from experience, not from
ideas. Older people have the experience that younger people lack. We
will ensure that older people's involvement in the decision making of
society, such as the taking of decisions by government, is INCREASED.
2.11 Animal welfare
We will PROHIBIT in England the ritual slaughter of animals, and the export of live animals.
2.12 'Keep Sunday Special'
We consider Sunday, the day of rest, to be an important part of
traditional English life, which should not be changed by commercial
pressures. We will PROTECT its character.
3.1 Our philosophy
Our approach to government is to be concerned with our 'Gross National
Happiness', not merely our 'Gross National Product'. We do not believe
that English politics is a problem of economics only. A prosperous
society is not necessarily a civilized or happy one. Now that the
British Empire is a thing of the distant past we face the overriding
economic problem of maintaining our national standard of living as the
world becomes more developed and more competitive. We need to recognize
that we must now look after ourselves, and not the rest of the world.
We believe that recent history has proved that it is only the MARKET
ECONOMY which creates wealth. Therefore the dream of a Socialist
'command economy' is ended. At the same time we do not advocate only
free-for-all, liberal, 'look-after-number-one', economics. We believe
that the national government has a coordinating role to play, and
should intervene in the economy, but only selectively.
3.2 Supporting an enterprise culture
An economy flourishes not because of its government, but because of its
people. People are naturally enterprising, and will invest in new
ventures, taking calculated risks, so long as they are not discouraged
from doing so. England needs to be, in Napoleon's words, 'a nation of
shopkeepers', and we will support such an ENTERPRISE CULTURE, giving
greater public recognition to entrepreneurs, particularly those who
increase our nation's exports.
3.3 The market economy & intervention
Government must allow MARKET FORCES to indicate what the national
economy needs to be produced. It must support competition in order to
encourage innovation and the achievement of minimum costs of
production. Any act by government to protect citizens as producers
penalizes citizens as consumers. However, there are times when the
CITIZENS AS PRODUCERS must be protected. For example, sudden
large-scale unemployment in an industry or a region is nationally
unacceptable. While market forces will indicate the best products and
services the nation can produce within the international trading
economy, government can recognize and reinforce national trends, so
that the nation can, with the help of government, excel in targeted,
highly profitable industries. Government can also to some extent
coordinate the public and private sectors, for example by ensuring that
the universities support industry.
3.4 Evening out booms and slumps
Government can beneficially intervene in the national economy to even
out economic BOOMS AND SLUMPS. For example, high levels of taxes can be
collected in times of boom, when, given inflated prices, few public
projects should be executed. Public money is then available for public
projects, which reduce unemployment in times of slump, when, with
deflated prices, public projects can be carried out most beneficially.
3.5 Reducing unemployment
We will do everything practical to REDUCE unemployment. For example,
when necessary we will set up government companies ('National
Companies') which will compete in the open market with private
companies, and we will locate their offices and factories in areas
which need a greater diversity of employment. Where an industry or
large private company is in decline or closing down, we will move into
that area a National Company office or factory. We will encourage such
companies to be as profitable as possible, and use any profits to
finance the programme.
3.6 Economic regionalism
Too much of our national economy is focused on London. We want to
encourage the economic development of all the regions, and will support
the development of the MAJOR CITY IN EACH REGION.
3.7 'BUY ENGLISH'
Governments must support the principle of Free Trade in order to keep
foreign markets open to our products. Individuals, however, are free to
BUY HOME PRODUCTS, and should do so whenever possible. We will require
traders to label all English and British Isles products.
is no land like England, Where'er the light of day be, There are no
maids like English maids, So beautiful as they be... And these shall
wed with freemen, And all their sons be free, To sing the songs of
England, Beneath the greenwood tree."
'There is no land like England' ALFRED TENNYSON
|4.1 Our philosophy
We believe that in an increasingly mobile world, one of the most
important responsibilities of an English government is POPULATION
CONTROL. We need to control the number of people living in England in
relation to our population density, urban:rural balance, the impact of
road building on cities and countryside, etc. We also need to control
who lives in England in relation to the need to maximize social
cohesion and a sense of community, and in order to preserve our English
identity as a people of Scandinavian origin. We deplore those
irresponsible political parties which have operated an open-door policy
since the Second World War. Immigration is an emotive issue but it must
be faced. WHAT IS IMMIGRATION? It is when individuals or families
uproot themselves from their home country and culture on the assumption
that the economic benefit of living in another country will be greater
than the loss of their roots. For the receiving nation it means the
accommodation of people from an alien identity and culture, most of
whom initially make severe economic demands, some of whom become
permanent financial drains. It also means in the longer term an
expanding number of citizens in a host country who are only partially
committed to the country in which they live. At a local level it means
indigenous people, usually in relatively poor urban areas, observing an
influx of foreigners transforming their locality so that it can hardly
any more be described as being part of their own country. It was a
MISTAKE to allow post WW2 mass immigration from the British Empire, and
we are now suffering the consequences.
We will allow NO MORE IMMIGRATION into England. We will enforce this by
increasing the resources of the Customs and Immigration Service, using
available military personnel when convenient.
The number of immigrants and people from immigrant families now living
in England has become so great that the time has come to turn the
inward flow into an outward flow. We will implement a 20 year programme
of the repatriation of post-WW2 immigrants. This will be carried out
sympathetically but with determination. It will be done by
'Constructive Repatriation' i.e. by the normal government process of
passing Acts of Parliament which will make England less and less
attractive for the immigrants to remain.
4.4 European migration and anti-Semitism
European migration needs to be considered in relation to our policy on
EUROPE GENERALLY, AND THE EU IN PARTICULAR. European migrants will tend
to return to their country when its economy and welfare system is
comparable to our own. At times we might welcome temporary migration
from Europe, such as the proposal to recruit surplus Spanish doctors
due to our failure to train enough of our own. We are opposed to
anti-Semitism. During the 20th Century Jews migrated from Europe to
England at a time when they had NO HOMELAND OF THEIR OWN. It is also
appropriate to note the exceptional contribution to British society of
cultured Jews from developed European countries. Pre-WW2 Jewish
immigration is not to be confused with the unnecessary and undesirable
mass immigration from the British Empire.
4.5 Political asylum
The present asylum system means continued immigration into England
every time there is a political crisis somewhere in the world. Asylum
seekers should be required to take refuge in neighbouring slates so
that they can easily return home. We will accept only EXCEPTIONAL CASES
of asylum seekers on a short-term basis, and only subject to the direct
personal initiative of the English Home Secretary. If a country is so
misgoverned as to cause an exodus of asylum seekers, we consider
ourselves justified in putting pressure on that country, diplomatic or
military, until stable government is achieved.
4.6 Racial discrimination and victimization
The responsibility for RACIAL DISCRIMINATION as a response to mass
immigration lies with those British politicians who allowed excessive
immigration into England in the past. We will remove racial
discrimination as a separate area of law on the grounds of the
Englishman's historic right of freedom of thought and speech. We will
oppose all forms of VICTIMISATION, including those on grounds of
religion or race. This includes the victimization of English people. If
anyone deserves to be prosecuted about unwanted immigration it is the
British politicians responsible.

'Home Thoughts, from Abroad' ROBERT BROWNING
|5 ENVIRONMENT & TRANSPORT |
5.1 Our philosophy
There is a general consensus that a government should do what it can to
protect and improve the physical environment, which comprises both the
RURAL and the URBAN. One of the acknowledged glories of England is our
'Green and Pleasant (rural) Land', and we have some excellent urban
architecture, as well as some ugly cities and towns left over from our
industrial past. All political parties promise improvements, but they
never offer radical change. We will bring about radical change by our
promise to reduce the population of our congested Enland, from about 50
million to about 45 million. The result will be the end to further
building of houses and roads in our countryside, and the greater of our
5.2 Our urban environment
We will CONSERVE the best parts of our urban environment, and encourage
a form of modern ARCHITECTURE, which is understood and enjoyed by the
5.3 Mixed employment opportunities
Our main Town Planning objective will be for all towns and cities to
offer MIXED EMPLOYMENT opportunities as far as is possible, in order to
reduce the danger of large scale unemployment when a large company or
industry declines. In doing this we also recognize the need to keep
ESTABLISHED COMMUNITIES together.
5.4 Public-use transport
We will support the greater use of group transportation systems
(trains, buses, etc) in order to attract people away from the
unnecessary and unhealthy OVER-USE of the private car. We want to
reduce pollution by car fumes, and hold down the need for new road
building. We will support the development in England of pollution-free
(e.g. electric) private cars and similar innovations.
"At independent schools, teachers are highly accountable, but how they get results is left to them."
Head of Roedean School PATRICIA METHAM
|6 HEALTH, EDUCATION & JUSTICE |
6.1 Our philosophy
We are a 'One-Nation' party and believe that if a nation is a coherent
whole, it follows that we the English are bound together by ties of
mutual respect and responsibility. We believe that health, education,
and justice are not simple services to be provided by the open market.
They help determine the nature of our society and civilization. They
must be provided EQUALLY TO ALL so as to achieve A UNIFIED SOCIETY.
Furthermore, they must be FINANCED by government so as to be free at
the time of need, with appropriate costs possibly being reclaimed
subsequently. However, they are most efficiently PROVIDED by competing,
independent, not-for-profit organizations. Efficient organizations will
prosper and grow, inefficient organizations will decline and close.
Therefore, our philosophy is the PUBLIC FINANCE and INDEPENDENT
PROVISION of health, education and justice services.
6.2 Health care: Provision
In the context of the general principle of health care being financed
by government but provided by independent organizations, we will
finance the user of the National Health Service at least at the same
level as those nations, which provide the highest standard of service.
We will not take advantage of the good will of medical professionals by
holding down their incomes.
6.3 Health care: Medical research
6.4 Education: Social divisiveness
We are proud of the contribution England has made to world medical
research and development, and will encourage this to continue. In
particular we want English scientists to continue to make a
disproportionately large contribution to MEDICAL RESEARCH and the
creation of medical discoveries and innovations.
Nothing has prolonged historical CLASS DIVISIONS in England more than
our two-tier education system. When parents send their child to a
private school, they do so to achieve the best education available and
almost guaranteed access to higher education for their child. However
these same people collectively also create the problem of a body of
public school educated adults who have little in common with state
educated adults, particularly those from a deprived background. The
solution is not state education for all because state education has
been proved to be mostly, though not entirely, second rate. The
solution is independent education for all, with all financed by
government. All schools would be run by their professional teachers in
collaboration with parents, and only a minimum of supervision would be
necessary by the state which is providing the finance.
6.5 Education: No political indoctrination
We will ensure that our children are protected from all forms of
political indoctrination. Our children must be allowed to think for
themselves and form their own opinions free from interference.
6.6 Education: Spoken and written English
We consider that the primary objective of basic education must be to
produce in every individual the ability to speak and write GOOD
ENGLISH. With good command of language, people are free to study and
attempt most things they wish. Without a command of language they are
6.7 Education: Course content
We will specify a limited SET OF NATIONAL requirements for all schools,
e.g. all schools would be required to achieve university entry
standard. English language should be taught with reference to its
historic roots. English history should be taught from the beginning of
England's origins, AD 400, not from the Norman conquest, AD 1066.
6.8 Education: Working classes
We recognize that for historic reasons, English working class people
have yet to realize the benefits that can be gained from the investment
of time and effort in education. We will ensure that working class
children receive appropriate SUPPLEMENTARY GUIDANCE in order to
overcome this deficiency. We want to see in our universities a
proportionate number of students from working class backgrounds.
6.9 Education: Vouchers for Higher Education
We will issue all school leavers with higher education vouchers for
use, subject to achieving academic qualifications, AT ANY STAGE during
their rives, as a way of encouraging adults back into education.
6.10 Justice: Provision
Many legal costs will be initially paid by government, with costs being
reclaimed by the state in appropriate cases. This will reassure people
that justice is IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE TO ALL, and force government to
ensure that legal procedures keep costs to a minimum. A stage would be
introduced into current procedures so that the initiation of a legal
case must be justified where the cost will be ultimately public.
6.11 Justice: The legal profession
The public feels that legal procedures are designed by lawyers for the
benefit of lawyers. People must feel confident to use the justice
system when they need to. We will overhaul the legal system to ensure
that it is USER FRIENDLY, and caters for the consumer, not the
The traditional professions have contributed much to society, and to
their various fields by virtue of the principles which have been
developed within them. These principles have ensured that health,
education, justice, and other services to society, have been provided
at a level above simple commercial activity. We recognize this and will
ENCOURAGE the continuation of these professions
|7.1 Our philosophy
We believe that the gradual improvement in our material standard of
living and the elimination of abject poverty should have resulted in a
radical reduction in crime. That this has not happened is a failure of
politicians, not the police. It is the result of the POLITICAL
MISMANAGEMENT of society. We will act to reduce crime, and reduce the
SOCIAL CAUSES OF CRIME, such as poor working class education. We will
aim to create a society in which crime becomes increasingly
7.2 Social cohesion and conformism
In the last 60 years there has been a complete loss of SOCIAL COHESION
in the working class areas of our inner cities. This loss of cohesion
means that individuals, often from immigrant backgrounds, no longer
feel constrained by agreed norms. This attitude is reinforced by our
English culture of individualism. We will take all measures necessary
to restore social cohesion in the areas which breed crime.
7.3 The link with immigration
A disproportionate amount of crime in England is the work of immigrants
and those from immigrant families. This is due to immigrants being
alienated from English society. Our policy of repatriation with an
initial emphasis on criminals will radically help to reduce crime.
7.4 Education to reduce crime
Many people turn to crime despite that fact that it is not in their
real interests. With little education, training and social skills they
have no better options. We will ensure that the national education
system provides SPECIAL RESOURCES AND TECHNIQUES to ensure that no
adolescent leaves general education with so little intellectual and
technical training that they need to take up a life of crime. It is
particularly important that such people are helped to go directly from
school to a secure long-term job without a break. Our proposed National
Service will assist in this by 'filling the gap'.
7.5 Verdict: Sentence
At the present time juries determine verdicts, and judges alone decide
sentences, which they base on past decisions and their own value
judgements. However, an act of violence is an act against a person
before it is an act against society. VICTIMS OR THEIR FAMILIES have a
right to influence the character and severity of a sentence, and we
will alter procedures so that this is possible.
7.6 The punishment should fit the crime
We believe that EXCESSIVE TOLERANCE towards crime means that the
balance between the benefits and costs of crime to the hardened
criminal have tended to favour a career in crime. We will redress this
balance, taking no account of the civil liberties lobby.
7.7 Death Penalty
We will restore the DEATH PENALTY for terrorists who kill, serial
killers, and the premeditated murder of a child by an adult. We will
make the changes retrospective.
We REJECT any idea of legalizing the use of drugs. We will do more than
any other party to stamp it out. We aim to create a society where
people have better and safer ways of enjoying themselves.
"I think that the poorest he that is in England hath a life to live, as the greatest he."
Lt Colonel WILLIAM RAINSBOROOUGH (a Leveller speaking at the time of the English Civil War 1649)
8.1 Our philosophy
We believe that free enterprise and risk-taking creates prosperity, but
also leaves the risk-taker exposed if he/she fails. Everybody, and not
just the deprived, needs what Sir Winston Churchill called a PUBLIC
WELFARE SAFETY NET.
Our approach will be to support those people whom the PUBLIC WOULD WISH
TO SUPPORT if they knew their circumstances, and not support those
people whom the public would not wish to support it if they knew their
circumstances. This will be facilitated by involving the public in
relatively detailed discussion of who should and should not be
supported by taxation. We will publish information about what
categories of assistance have been claimed, granted, and refused, in
order than the public can calibrate policies and trends. We also think
that a FLEXIBLE approach is required. Norms are useful, but some people
may require more assistance than can be legislated for by general
rules. The severely physically disabled, for example, require a great
deal of expensive assistance if they are to live a life as normal as
Prosperity today is the result of past sacrifices, investments and
endeavor, so we must look after our elderly in need. We will give
priority to maintaining a NATIONAL PENSION SYSTEM as generous as the
economy allows, with pensions indexed at least to average earnings and
at the highest level internationally.
9.1 Our philosophy
We believe that all English people are entitled to a home of their own,
and in an ideal world every home would be owned by its occupants. It
should be possible to acquire a basic home without the need for great
personal sacrifices, and Government should be prepared to protect
people from the vagaries of a free-for-all housing market. We will make
the housing market MORE USER FRIENDLY.
9.2 Housing supply
Our policy of repatriation will result at no public cost in the steady
supply of ADDITIONAL PUBLIC HOUSING for rent over the next 20 years.
This will reduce, and with the reduction in our population eliminate,
the shortages in problem areas, particularly in London.
9.3 Nationalization of public housing
We will manage public housing nationally so that it provides a BETTER
SERVICE FOR TENANTS and better serves the nation. Demunicipilisation of
public housing will rescue tenants from areas of extremely bad housing
and management, and allow tenants to move nationwide.
We will allocate public housing only to people holding an English
passport, and aim to be able to house all categories of people,
including SINGLE MEN AND THE YOUNG. We will require the allocation of
public housing to discriminate in favour of those who have the greatest
historical claim on public housing in a specific location, as an aid to
enhancing the social cohesion of established communities.
We will CONTINUE AND EXTEND the right of public housing tenants to own their own home.
9.6 Supply and Demand
We want the cost of housing to be as LOW AS POSSIBLE. The price of
housing should only marginally be above its current cost of
construction. We therefore do not want it to continue to serve as a
primary form of investment. In order to keep its price down to the
minimum necessary to support private investment, we will ensure that
supply stays ahead of demand wherever possible.

across the sea. Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
fallen in the cause of the free... As the stars that shall be bright
when we are dust, moving in marches upon the heavenly plain, as the
stars that are starry in the time of our darkness, to the end, to the
end, they remain."
'For the Fallen' LAURENCE BINYON
10.1 Our philosophy
What do we mean by 'defence'? 60 years ago national defence meant
protecting ourselves from invasion by other European states. This is
now a problem of the past. European nation-states are now our allies
through NATO against aggression from outside Europe. There has been a
RADICAL CHANGE in our military requirements, and the need now is for a
combination of excellent international diplomacy to avoid conflicts and
maximize cooperation, and a suitable military force for essential
international policing operations.
10.2 Maintaining technical superiority and military alliances
Our best form of defence is to be as TECHNICALLY ADVANCED as possible
in military strategy and weaponry. Being so means investing in research
and development with other states, because we cannot afford it alone.
It also means continuing to export arms because this is necessary to
cover our investments. So long as we maintain a realistic view of our
military requirements, we will not find ourselves in the same desperate
situation as in 1939-41, when we lacked the independent means to resist
10.3 Policing the world
The devastating attack on New York by a small group of individuals with
few resources demonstrated that we cannot contract out of being capable
of POLICING INTERNATIONAL PROBLEMS as they arise. We are in the
fortunate position of having a close relationship with the most
powerful democracy in the world, and we have the ability to enhance the
USA's quality of response to situations. At present we correctly
describe our military concerns, as being with the threats from rogue
states, such as Argentina's attack on the Falklands, Iraq's attack on
Kuwait, and Afghanistan's protection of Muslim terrorists. Also, the
mis-government of a state can result in genuine but unwanted
applications to us for political asylum. Such a problem is sufficient
reason for us to consider a policing action, because providing asylum
in England is no longer an option in modem conditions. We must
establish criteria for involvement in events, and not try to solve
every problem. As nationalists we must say, for example, that we were
wrong to interfere in Kosovo as we did, because then we overlooked
"Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country".

nationalism is a language of the blood: a call to arms, which can end
in the horror of ethnic cleansing. But it is also a language of
belonging: a call to come home".
" 'Blood & Belonging' by MICHAEL IGNATIEFF
11.1 Our philosophy
We reject the drift towards individualism and the 'atomisation' of our
society into unrelated groups with nothing in common. We will
reestablish SYMBOLS OF ENGLISHNESS, and of England as a united
community of interdependent compatriots.
11.2 The media
Newspapers, television and radio shape the way we think. We will
introduce the principle of government guidance of media content for a
five-year period in order to ELIMINATE ITS ABILITY TO INDOCTRINATE. The
BBC will be replaced by a new English Broadcasting Corporation. We will
require all English national newspapers to be English registered and
11.3 The Church of England
The Church of England should more fully play the role of a NATIONAL
CHURCH, helping to maintain our national institutions and day-to-day
way of life. We will financially help a national Church, for example to
maintain its supportive role in the daily lives of our villages, towns,
and cities, and to conserve our priceless old church buildings. In
return we would expect the Church of England to be sensitive to the
views of the democratically elected government of the day.
11.4 St. George's Day
Nothing indicates more the neglect of our English identity than the
lack of attention paid by English people and our institutions to St.
George's Day. We will make it a NATIONAL HOLIDAY.
11.5 English National Festival
We will establish an English NATIONAL FESTIVAL similar to the Welsh
National Eisteddfod, to take place during the week of St. George's Day.
11.6 National service
When manpower rather than technology provided our main line of defence,
military National Service for all helped shape a law-abiding and
cohesive society which recognized the importance of the nation and the
national interest. National Service took in adolescents and passed out
mature, self-confident adults. Our drug infested society need this
process still. We will restore a MODERN FORM OF NATIONAL SERVICE,
military and non-military, with the main aim of preparing young people
for adult life. As was the case formerly, it would bring together young
English people from all areas and walks of life and provide them with a
period between school and normal work which would broaden their mind
and help them better choose the best career for themselves. It would
guarantee them some WORLD TRAVEL AND TECHNOLOGICAL TRAINING, and help
ensure that no individual entered adult life without a positive
attitude to the future.
| 12.1 Our philosophy
Local authorities should be small and should do a FEW THINGS WELL, not
many things badly. Local authorities should not be run on a party
political basis, but by the most capable and motivated local people
keen to provide the best possible services to residents. We will impose
central government control on the terms of employment of staff, so that
local authorities do not operate primarily in the interests of those
We will remove the power of local authorities to collect taxes, and
will finance their services entirely from NATIONAL TAXATION. This will
make possible a transfer of funds from wealthy areas with few problems
to poor areas with many problems.
12.3 Our Inner Cities
Our cities have followed the same pattern as in the USA, with wealthier
people commuting to quiet places outside, and poorer people living in
rundown public housing in the Inner City. There are many notorious
areas in our cities, which people know to avoid, and law-abiding people
living in those areas are trapped. The local councils there are weak
and often preoccupied with 'Politically Correct' ideas. They are also
the areas where racial ghettos become established. These areas
represent one of our major political challenges. Our remedy will be
radical intervention by skilled Central Government Urban Teams with
special powers to REGENERATE AREAS QUICKLY. We will transform these
areas so that they are no longer deprived places to be avoided by the
wealthy, and endured by the poor.

is it possible, in this wondrous land where the relics of genius and
enterprise confront you at every step, where every realm of human
possibility has been probed and challenged and generally extended,
where many of the very greatest accomplishments of industry, commerce
and the, arts find their seat, how is it possible that when at length I

13.1 Our philosophy
The literary and visual arts have a powerful influence on our thinking,
and we want them to protect and enhance OUR ENGLISH CULTURE. We will
apply our belief in the principle of monoculture by actively
reestablishing English culture as the only basis for our arts and
sports. This involves things like reestablishing a strong English film
industry and ensuring that our cricket is played in the traditional
13.3 English film industry
We will practice POS1TIVE CENSORSHIP of public TV/radio because they
have such a strong influence on our culture. We will ensure that these
reflect what the public wants, not what an elite of programme
controllers want. We will make TV more educational. We will employ the
media fully in order to communicate with the public and so achieve
greater 'Direct Democracy'.
Blessed with the English language, the American film industry based in
Los Angeles has acquired a near monopoly in the production of
English-speaking cinema and television films, and so dominates the
style and standard of our other television programmes. We will combat
this, and limit the influence of trivial American junk culture. We will
actively SUPPORT a good quality English film industry, though we will
expect it to become self-supporting very quickly.
13.4 English sport
We want to see sports teams and individuals representing England being
FULLY SUPPORTED so that they can be winners. We will therefore ensure
that our national facilities are of the highest international
standards. We also want to see English sport being sport, not business,
with greater emphasis on health-related amateur participation. We will
ensure that all national events are available on public television.
|14.1 Our philosophy
It is now technically possible for a democratic electorate to determine
national policy without always using representatives as an
intermediary. There remains a role for experienced Members of
Parliament to engage in parliamentary procedures and exercise
judgements in the interest of constituents. However, government should
allow the electorate to exercise DIRECT POWER whenever this is both
appropriate and practicable.
We will make the maximum use of REFERENDA using advances in
communication techniques. We will consider all proposals for referenda
received from the public, and hold referenda on the following type of
issues: the general level of taxation, the death penalty, abortion,
euthanasia, fox hunting, homosexual rights.
prosperity of others makes for our own prosperity; theft peace is our
tranquility; their progress smoothes our oath.... We rejoice at every
diminution of the internal tariffs and martial armaments of Europe...;
But we have our own dream and our own task. We are with Europe but not
of it. We are linked but not compromised. We are interested and
associated but not absorbed..."
WINSTON CHURCHILL (1930)
idea of the law of nations presupposes the distinction between the
independent states. Although this is a state of war...it is still,
according to reason, better than the fusion of those states by means of
a hierarchy of power culminating in a universal monarchy. Laws which
are passed for a large area lose their vigour, and such a soulless
despotism, after it has hollowed out the kernel of goodness, ultimately
collapses into anarchy".

|15 INTERNATIONAL POLICIES |
15.1 Our philosophy of National Independence
As nationalists we reject absolutely and on principle any loss of our
national sovereignty. We believe in preserving the division of the
world into a 'patchwork quilt' of INDEPENDENT NATION-STATES, each with
its unique identity and culture developed over past centuries. We are
opposed to anything which tends to reduce the differences between
nations, and which reduces their and our political independence,
identity, and unity. We recognize that England must now fight
vigorously to maintain our economy and quality of fife, having lost our
former advantages as a preeminent power in a world of many
underdeveloped nations unable to compete with us. Our approach to
international relations will be based only on protecting the INTERESTS
OF ENGLAND AND THE ENGLISH.
15.2 Rebirth of England
We will WITHDRAW England from the United Kingdom. England will then be
a 'reborn' nation-state, as will Scotland and Wales. We assume that
Northern Ireland might as a result establish itself as an independent
state, but this needs to be decided in Ireland. On establishing an
independent England, we will carry out from a purely English
perspective a comprehensive REVIEW of all legislation passed by past
15.3 Not a Federal United Kingdom
As Devolution develops, a federal UK will eventually be proposed as a
compromise to full independence, but it can be RULED OUT. It would not
work. It would lead only to inefficient and costly disagreements
between the federal UK Parliament, and the national English, Scottish
and Welsh Parliaments. For what reason would an English Parliament
accept dictation by a UK Parliament? A federal UK could also continue
to see England subsidizing nations, which are otherwise independent.
15.4 Council of the British Isles
Well prior to our withdrawal from the United Kingdom, we will establish
with the appropriate political parties of Scotland, Wales, and Northern
Ireland, and with the government of the Republic of Ireland,
arrangements for the successful dose cooperation of all the states of
the British Isles. We propose for this purpose a consultative COUNCIL
OF THE BRITISH ISLES, including Ireland. This would be based on equal
representation of each state, and would coordinate policies according
to the wishes of each independent state. It would meet. at a mutually
convenient central location within the Isles.
15.5 Our relations with Ireland
We believe that our proposals will lead to new and BETTER RELATIONS
with Ireland, putting the problems of the past behind us. This should
improve our relations with Irish people throughout the world, including
in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the USA, where there remains a
residual resentment of England's imperial past.
Our policy is 'Cooperation not Integration'. We want an ENGLAND
GOVERNED BY ENGLISH MPs FROM WESTMINSTER. We will withdraw from the
European Union until it reforms itself into a loose ASSOCIATION of
independent European nation-states. We recognize that the nations of
Europe have greatly influenced each other's development in the past,
and we support the maximum cooperation between the nations of Europe.
However, we reject any moves towards political integration. Europe is a
Continent, not a Country. We will never allow laws from outside bodies
to be imposed on England.
15.7 English speaking nations
Our ability to form close relations with other nations depends to some
extent on the availability of a common language and on historical ties,
leading to the possibility of mutual understanding. In these respects
there are opportunities for reestablishing closer links with Australia
and New Zealand, Canada, and the USA. We will encourage citizens and
the governments of these nations to increasingly recognize THEIR
ENGLISH AND BRITISH ROOTS as a basis for greater cooperation with us.
We will also explore the possibility of greater cooperation with the
other maritime nations of North-West Europe: Denmark, Norway, Iceland,
15.8 World peace
We believe that peace in the world will only be achieved by the further
development of INDEPENDENT NATION-STATES, each with secure borders and
a homogenous and socially cohesive population. We recognize that there
are global security and environmental problems, which require
underdeveloped nations to take actions, which they cannot afford. Only
in such cases will we, in cooperation with other developed nations,
provide TARGETFED ASSISTANCE.
