British Party: Democracy and Citizens' Rights

Local and National Democracy within a New British Union
Our Nation should enjoy Democracy, with the resident British citizens having the right to take part in debating local issues, putting forward proposals, finding solutions that are satisfying for the common good, and deciding by vote the preferred proposal.
This same form of Democracy should be applied by way of referendum to important national issues proposed in Parliament concerning the Country.

The House of Commons
The elected House of Commons should be the only legislative body in Parliament, while abiding to the concept of a referendum on important issues of national concern. The antiquated House of Lords is out of touch with the concept of modern democracy and constitutes an unnecessary burden of added weight to the present system of centralised big government.

Constitution of Basic Citizens' Rights
The Constitution of basic citizens' rights, once established, could not be changed even through democracy, legislation or referendum. This Constitution has to guarantee the undisputed right of our Nation to Freedom and Independence, and the rights of British citizens to live with dignity and be able to participate in the economy, to be assisted in time of need, and to be instructed in the ways of righteousness.

The Christian Faith is the only Faith that our schools should uphold and impart. Any attempt to prevent the Christian Faith from being made known and cherished within British schools must be combated with the Law.

British Party: Community Farms

Employing British People on British Farms
Britain’s prosperity depends to an important extent on agriculture. In order for agriculture in Britain to be prosperous, it is necessary for farms to employ local British people for full time and seasonal work, rather than excluding out of principle British people and employing Eastern Europeans.

Community farms should be introduced nationally as part of a campaign to encourage enthusiastic people to learn how to work a garden and grow vegetables, and how to plant and cultivate an orchard. Each county would run its own community farm estates, and these would be distributed within the various districts of the county.

In return for a standard wage, and under the guidance of knowledgeable farmers, people would become acquainted with working the soil, sowing seeds, planting vegetables and fruit trees, and tending to them. They would also take part in the harvest once the crops have ripened.

Finding Work on Farms
The next logical step in this campaign is to encourage local farmers to offer vacant farm work to the members of the community farms residing in their county, offering both full time and seasonal work. As a result, hundreds of thousands of jobs could be created in Britain’s agriculture sector for British people, alleviating the state Treasury of expenses related to unemployment and offering a standard wage to people who otherwise would be forced into dependency on job seekers allowance, which in the UK is currently £67 a week.

There is plenty of farm work available in Britain, and this always used to be carried out by local people residing near farms. But in recent years, many farmers in some parts of Britain have taken to discriminating against British people and employing exclusively eastern European workers. This is not only unfair, but is indeed racial discrimination, and is equal to the attitude of so many private sector employers in British factories, who actively recruit only eastern European workers, even those who cannot speak a word of English.

This Is Our Garden
When God created Adam and Eve, He gave them the Garden of Eden to live in. At that time Adam and his wife Eve did not need to work the Garden, as the fruit came forth spontaneously and in abundance. Then God sent the first man and woman from the Garden of Eden and told them they must work in order to obtain fruit from the soil.

This is why community farms are an important factor in British Party ideals, as people should not lose contact with the countryside and the necessity to work the soil to obtain food. Everywhere in the world people should be able to say of their own land: “this is our garden, we work on our land and enjoy the fruits of our labour”.

It is so important for a country not to discriminate against its own people by excluding them from participating in the joys and duties of life, as if their own land were foreign to them and did not accept them.

British Party is adverse to racial discrimination and campaigns for the rights of British people to find work on British farms and in Britain’s factories without being excluded out of principle on account of our being British.

Church and State in Britain

Parliament defends the Christian Faith in Britain

Localism Act Permits Christian Prayers
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has reversed a High Court ban that outlawed Christian prayers in Britain. Sky News reported on 18 February 2012 that the Communities Secretary signed a parliamentary order bringing into immediate effect a general power of competence contained in the Localism Act which enables councils to do anything an individual can do that is not illegal.

The move came in response to a High Court ruling earlier in February 2012 forbidding prayers in English councils prior to meetings. Bideford Town Council in Devon had been taken to court by a former councillor and the National Secular Society and ordered to renounce prayers at the start of their council meetings, and the court order became effective for all councils in England.

Stalinist Tyranny and the Government's Response
This blatant act of hatred towards the right of Christians to unite in prayer at the beginning of a working session was considered by many among Government ministers and the Clergy as an act of aggression against the freedom of the English People to practice the Christian Faith.
Eric Pickles said: “I can participate in prayers in the House of Commons so if I can do that why shouldn't councils throughout the Country do it?”  

The swift response from Britain's Parliament to a court ruling that outlaws the Christian Faith in British governing institutions is an evident demonstration that the British State and the Christian Faith are inseparable. It is proof that no court can ever stamp out our freedom and dignity to be that what we are: a tolerant nation that does not force people to believe in God, but that will not allow anyone to take from us the freedom to unite in communion and say prayers to the Lord in Christ's name.

Eric Pickles went on to say: "Last week's case should be seen as a wake-up call. For too long, the public sector has been used to marginalise and attack faith in public life, undermining the very foundations of the British nation. But this week, the tables have been turned."

Common British Identity in the Union Flag
Our English St. George Flag is Christian; our Scottish St. Andrew Flag is Christian; our Irish St. Patrick Flag is Christian. So our Union Jack is Christian.

The Faith cannot be separate from the State, there can be no such thing as separation of State and Church. Parliament and local councils cannot separate God from their respective institutions.

We need prayers at the start of each parliamentary and council meeting, Christian prayers, as our Union Flag requires of us!
Otherwise we would renege our identity of being British.

On 6 April 2012, the Communities Secretary, Eric Pickles, announced the new power - that contained within the Localism Bill - would "let councils innovate and also hands them back the freedom to pray".
This new power allows parish councils in England, including town councils, to hold prayers as part of their formal business, for example during a council meeting.

The Communities Secretary went on to say: "Bideford Town Council will be able to hold prayers once more at the start of council business. With Easter approaching, this sends a strong signal that this Government will protect the role of faith in public life against aggressive secularism".

The National Secular Society, which seeks to ban the Christian Faith from local government, has accused Mr. Pickles of behaving like a dictator, and has suggested that the court order which in February 2012 banned local government from saying prayers, is still valid. The National Secular Society said, in fact, that English parish councils abiding to the British Law - the Localism Bill - will risk being in contempt of court.

With this statement, the National Secular Society has challenged the authority of Parliament and of the democratically elected Government, not through democratic means, but by way of a court order which they are implying is binding and prevents Parliament from freedom of legislation.

With this latest statement, the National Secular Society has taken on both the Authority of Jesus Christ and the authority of Parliament. A court order banning the Christian Faith in England would mean the introduction of tyranny and the collapse of a Christian society through dictatorship. It would also mean the end of Parliament's authority, as it would serve as a precedent to bring to an end - by way of court orders - Parliament's freedom of legislation.
