Build It In Britain

No more British Government contracts for foreign firms when there were British ones ready and willing to take them on; none of this could ever have happened without privatisation, Compulsory Competitive Tendering, the Private Finance Initiative, Best Value, and so on.

No more importation of the products of ununionised cheap labour, and no more hand-wringing about the "weak" pound when a Government with any idea what it was doing would take the opportunity to rejuvenate British manufacturing on the basis of this newfound competitiveness of sterling; none of this could ever have happened if we had kept import controls and capital controls, or if we had never moved away from common sense Keynesianism.

And no more importation of ununionised cheap labour itself; none of this could ever have happened if it had still been a case of "no union card, no job", or if the unions had still been able to take industrial action worthy of the name.

The Brexit Dividend, indeed. Announced, of course, in Birmingham. Announced, of course, by Jeremy Corbyn. And opposed, of course, by the globalist, unpatriotic, un-Tory, "value of nothing" Conservative Party that was created by Margaret Thatcher. Although not only by that party. Many of Corbyn's own MPs, including one thoroughly over-publicised member for a Birmingham constituency, are at least as bad.

But there is going to be another hung Parliament, and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it. I need £10,000 in order to stand for Parliament with any chance of winning. My crowdfunding page has been taken down without my knowledge or consent. But you can still email davidaslindsay@hotmail.com instead, and that address accepts PayPal.
