Who Can You Trust?

Who can you trust to work towards what you want in this General Election?

That is a tough question of course, but the way to find out is to get those people who want to represent you in Parliament to acknowledge and pledge that they will do what they say they will.  It is in this mindset and fed up of again being betrayed by our political class that James, Ian and David got together set up the Albion Alliance

It is because the Albion Alliance exists that I am able to publish the 95 names of the candidates that has had the courage and the conviction to make a simple pledge on this side of the election that if they are elected, they have all declared:

I pledge to work tirelessly to give the voters of my constituency a democratic and direct voice in the United Kingdom’s continued relationship with the EU.

I pledge that I will sponsor a Private Members Bill, written in clear concise terms, calling for a referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union – and/or support any motion for such a referendum – and to vote positively for any Bill that may call for such a referendum, irrespective of Party Whip, with a view to the successful outcome of this pledge within 1 year of a new Parliament or sooner.

As someone else who feels let down by our continued submersion into the EU leviathian the Albion Alliance has provided me with a mechanism by which look at the candidates running in my area and press my local candidates to get them to state unequivocally whether they feel the same way as I do, and if so to offer more than mere words.  Words alone that one day things will all come good have stranded the UK without the means of real self-determination.  It is time we got serious about what is at stake and how to correct it.

Thus far, just ninety-five candidates out of thousands have been willing and/or able to make this very simple pledge.  Thus these are the only ninety-five candidates that can really be trusted to work for a referendum.  I have included their contact info where I have it, as there is no such thing as an election candidate who could not use a bit more support, or a bit more cash.

It is NOT too late to pledge, it is not too late to contact your local candidates to ask them to pledge. 

It WILL be too late to do anything about our EU Membership when the final controls are soon ceded to Brussels - Do something about it today!

Daniel,

Thank you very much for publishing this list.

You are quite right, it is not too late for a candidate to pledge, and to make it simple they can do this online here
http://candidatedb.albionalliance.org.uk/Candidate_Pledge.php

Alternatively voters can present their candidates with the pledge form to sign (and return to The Albion Alliance)

Democracy should not be sidelined for party interests.
