Trustees-All - Independent Constitutionalists UK
Manifesto


• LET’S USE THE SYSTEM
• TO BECOME THE SYSTEM
• TO CHANGE THE SYSTEM
• TO RECOVER TRUST

We are the first independent, bottom-up, non-power-based political Movement and Process, independent of all existing political parties, and free of official membership, of constituency selection committees, and of central funding beholden to vested interest sponsors. People offer our initiative support as individuals and do so as citizens in a Trustees-All Movement. We deem all current political, economic & social institutions unfit for purpose since unable to secure the trust of the people. Root and branch reform of these institutions, according to recognised yet rarely achieved principles of genuine democracy, is thus required.

OUR PURPOSE

To use the political system, to become the system, to change the system, to bring about renewed institutions that will foster Truth and recover Trust within society.

OUR STRATEGY

To restore England to independent sovereign-nation status. Invite the four nations and other islands that currently constitute the UK to re-form as a Confederation. Equip all reformed and renewed institutions with democratic charters and protocols for governance. Entrench such root-and-branch reform in a written and living constitution.

OUR ACTION

Independent self- and crowd-funded candidates representing a citizen Trustees-All Movement, could begin to stand under an Independent Constitutionalist banner in future general elections and campaign for a written constitution based on a living charter of principles called a People’s 21st Century Magna Carta. With the electorate’s support, the candidates would work to form a non-partisan Constitutional Parliament to replace the existing House of Lords and function as a real Upper House to which, under a new Constitution, any future House of Commons & government will be accountable. Said Constitutional Parliament will call general elections for both the House of Commons & Executive Government to re-legitimise themselves every seven years.

THE TIMING

The Independent Constitutionalists are now inviting volunteers to become Speakers for their cities, towns, villages and communities. Speakers will initially recruit and support independent candidates to the Constitutional Parliament and will organise DemoCafés to encourage proper ongoing deliberative debate to take place among citizen-trustees. With support for the four major and the eight minor political parties becoming increasingly volatile and unpredictable, a real opportunity could arise within the next few years to elect a Constitutional Parliament and to start to implement a People’s Magna Carta for the 21st Century. Current political developments suggest, further, that a refashioning of the United Kingdom into a New Confederation for the Islands of Britain may become not only desirable, but also necessary, in the near future.
