1. Does your party have any connection with the Austrian Freedom Party?

No. There are Freedom Parties all over the world of widely varying political complexions.

The name was chosen because we stand for freedom from the suppression of democratic debate which the phenomenon of ‘political correctness’ was intended to produce, and freedom from having control over our futures handed over to a European elite remote from democratic control.

2. Are you racist?

No. We believe that humankind quite naturally forms itself into differing societies with characters and identities of their own. The real racists are those who wish to make everyone the same while pretending that they are enhancing diversity. The word ‘racism’ is now used to mean almost anything which those in power wish to suppress for the purpose of increasing their power.

3. Why do parties like yours often get a bad press?

A bad press is diminishing gradually as the intentions of those in power become clear to all. The real reason for the negative attitude of much of the media towards pro-British parties is, however, other than anything to do with the views we express. It is simply because the media is a business, and businessmen like to to seek the favour of those in power to aid their enterprises.

4. Why are parties like yours are often accused of opposing democracy?

Because our opponents’ idea of democracy is one within which no one holds any opinion but theirs.

5. Are you nationalist?

We do not like the term nationalism since it embraces two utterly different outlooks which are often confused - sometimes deliberately and for political and perjorative reasons.

On the one hand, it can mean a wish for one’s country to control and dominate as much of the world as possible. On the other, it means a wish for one’s country to retain or regain the right of self-determination.

We fervently support the right of the British people to control their own affairs and decide on their own future.

6. Parties like yours often claim to have wide public agreement with their views, yet are not, at present, very large organisations like the three main parties. Why is this?

Few could reasonably have foreseen the manner in which the main parties have betrayed this country and its people. Our success in the Second World War seemed to point to a regime which would support our interests. The public have been reluctant to accept that what is happening is not just a temporary lapse by those in power, but a deliberate and systematic plan to dismantle our country against the wishes of the vast majority.

7. Plenty of people think that this country’s decline is now so advanced that nothing can be done. It is clear that you do not agree with this or your party would not exist. Why do you not share the belief that nothing can be done?

A similar argument was advanced for many years concerning communism, which appeared unstoppable. Yet it collapsed. The fact of the matter is that everything is possible if the political will is there. Those in power want people to believe that their system is immovably entrenched to discourage their opponents.

8. Can a party far smaller than Lib/Lab/Con really make any difference?

What counts in politics is not the number of members. It is the number of active members. The big parties have hundreds of thousands of paper members but so few are willing to engage in active politics that the Freedom Party can easily outgun them locally in the areas where we campaign.

Much of the public do not yet know how few active participants the big parties have, and how disillusioned their memberships really are. That is why we were able to win a council seat against one of the biggest parties in the country.

9. There are several organisations like yours. Why should I join your party rather than one of the others?

In the long run, a willingness to address all the issues, and a way of doing things which attracts trust, count with the public.

Some organisations have been able to attract a large following as a protest against what is happening to Britain, but not persuade the public that they wanted them in power. Such movements are easily derailed as anyone who has studied the history of them will ascertain.

10. I am only one person. What difference could I possibly make?

Political change is usually brought about by very few people engaging in politics at a time when their societies are increasingly unhappy about the turn of events. Few would dispute that the present situation in Britain is pregnant with growing dissatisfaction largely unchannelled into political action.
