  • Open, transparent and accountable, with no hiding place for backroom influence.
  • Rational, with decisions and policy based on sound evidence, not media pressure.
  • Courageous, able to make difficult decisions without pandering to short-termism.
  • Ethical: dedicated to creating a sustainable society and economy with progressive moral values.

We believe that individuals should be:

In short, we wish to ensure government remains open and transparent, whilst individuals retain liberty and privacy.

We believe that we are heading towards a better future, and that government has an essential role in taking us there. We also believe that as a country, we can self-govern better in the future, and will create policy that hopes to re-engage citizens in our democratic process.

The ideas contained in this manifesto are intentionally idealistic; they show the direction we would like to see the UK head in. They are not necessarily policies that could be implemented tomorrow (although a few could be). Any attempt to implement them would certainly take a good deal of work, time, and reform, but we believe it's important to have a long-term roadmap to which to refer.
