A Country That Doesn’t Work For Anyone

Section:

As Matthew Steeples announces that he has submitted an application to stand for ChangeUK – The Independent Group, he argues that we must all work for a better Britain

Britain is broken. That’s a fact and with a stubborn and frankly disastrous Prime Minister what can we do?

 

Having repeatedly argued the case against Brexit in this title and been on such things as the People’s Vote March, I have never been anything but a publicly ‘out’ remainer. For this I have been criticised in some quarters and targeted by such people as Viscount St David’s and the vile Traditional Britain Group even.

 

To my mind, as a former activist and someone who worked on the leadership campaigns of William Hague in the 1990s and Kenneth Clark in the 2000s, it was not I who left the Conservative Party but they who left me. I, like so many others, found myself party-less and now, today, I confirm that I have applied to be a candidate in the European Elections for ChangeUK – The Independent Group.

 

Whilst improbable that I will even be selected, I want to state that I now feel we must all do what we can to stop Brexit plunging Britain into an era of deeper doom. I urge all readers to heed the words of Edmund Burke: The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” and to put their heads above the parapets.

  1. I have to say, Steven Berkoff’s comment is a damned sight calmer and more reasoned than Jackie’s “Section him!” response.

  2. I applaud you for wanting to step up to the plate, Matthew. But to honest, I am baffled as to why you would want to stand on behalf of TIG/Change UK.

    The problem with them is that nobody knows what they stand for – i.e. what their exact policies are. Their website provides nothing concrete – just a load of wishy-washy ramblings about how they’re fed up with current politics, want to defend Britain’s security, and make the country prosperous.

    Nobody has a clue as to how precisely they intend to go about it. And who funds them, btw?

    In terms of their current membership, I actually find the former Tories more palatable than the former Labour MPs (which is really saying something). I haven’t come across anyone with a positive thing to say about Chuka Umunna – the man who recently did a 180-degree turn and urged Remain campaigners to abandon calls for a second referendum or risk being seen as a metropolitan elite “who think they know best”

    I agree that the established parties – Labour, Tories, & Lib Dems are all useless. But TIG, for me, is not the answer.

  3. I remember when Steeples was actually a good journalist. Now hoes a remainiac fanatic only complaining about street scooters and patriots
