The British People’s Alliance is a pro-life, pro-family, pro-worker and anti-war party of economically social democratic, morally and socially conservative British and Commonwealth patriots.
We will be contesting every region at the 2009 European Elections, and we fully expect to contest every seat at the 2010 General Election. The former will be conducted according to a form of proportional representation, while at the latter we need only be the first past the post in any given constituency, both on very low turnouts, favouring those who organise locally to get out their votes.
Members must sign up as one or more of pro-life, pro-family, pro-worker, anti-war, an economic social democrat, a moral and social conservative, and a British and Commonwealth patriot. Each requires payment of one seventh of the membership fee, giving one vote in the party’s affairs. Candidates or officers above local level must subscribe on all seven counts.
We seek 14 membership organisations as partners: two pro-life, two pro-family, two pro-worker, two anti-war, two economically social democratic, two morally and socially conservative, and two of British and Commonwealth patriots. We hope that they will reflect their respective constituencies’ internal diversity.
In return for seven per cent of total permissible electoral expenses, each partner will maintain a list of approved candidates for Westminster, Strasbourg, Holyrood, Cardiff and Stormont. Local parties will only select candidates who are on one or more of those lists.
Eventually, we intend that each local party’s shortlist of two for Westminster, Strasbourg, Holyrood, Cardiff or Stormont will be put to a binding ballot of all registered voters in the constituency, while the whole party’s shortlist of two for Leader will be put to a binding ballot of all registered voters in the United Kingdom.
