    Well, I'm certainly not going to deny that this plan has been thoughtfully produced, but... this basically sounds like TSR Conservatism on steroids. Or just typical TSR Conservatism. There are already two pretty hard right parties in the House, and I honestly believe they'd share similar views to yours.

    Your views, in my opinion, are simply going to widen the class divide. But I wish you luck anyway.

    Can you tell me which the second "pretty hard right" party is? Given throwing 'pretty' in there somewhat reduces the hard bit I will give you UKIP when they're having a 'good' day, but I'm lost as to who the second is.

    Both TSR Conservatives and TSR UKIP are firmly right wing.

    The centre ground is probably somewhere slightly to the left of Blair and slightly to the right of Miliband. The UK's electorate is extremely right-wing.

    If anything i'd say it's right of Blair but not by much. If you took Blair (having never been previously elected) and gave him some anti-welfare and immigrant policies then i think he'd storm it.

    tbh I think Blair would storm it on his 2005 platform. May only looks like a good candidate because Labour are such a shitshow, she's not at all convincing so far IMO (whereas David Cameron - independently of politics - was a genuinely good PM).

    Given how much pollsters have looked into it the last couple of weeks, I would put Blair as the left limit and Cameron as the right limit, bit closer to Blair than Cameron.

    Then TSR Tories and UKIP are 'firmly right-wing' - no?

    If the OP and others are interested, I see a potential for us to merge and finally get the Libertarian project off the ground (I hope).

    You can't merge two parties that don't (and won't) exist.

    So if me and the OP agreed on one agenda, we couldn't combine?

    Nothing stopping you submitting a single bid to create a new party, provided you were still distinguishable enough from the existing six parties.
