Did an Eton Boy write this?
The author is certainly of a bourgeois persuasion.

Guess what? I won't be joining.
I wouldn't expect you to. Keep working on bringing that Green voice into the House, which also expands the options available in here!

Where are you to the right of the Lib Dems? I guess there's privatisation of the NHS (something incredibly right wing which is apparently a problem to you guys) but other than that it's Lib Dem through and through given it's a load of moralistic rambling
The political positions of the founding members are all right-wing moderates.

I've gotta say, it is very weird there is so much freaking out over a new party. Let them form and fight them at the ballot box. If you are so confident you can beat them, you have nothing to worry about.

A different (and Random) question for the proposers of this party.

What is the party's stance on Brexit?
What will the party's leadership structure be? (I know this one is very random)

I like how both Aph and Catus failed to answer what social conservative policies Libers have produced recently. Maybe its because we have non? Most of our social legislation have been socially liberal.

If they are like CUK it's going to be betraying the people and support remaining.

No but I know a lot about this
Like more than the NHS?

In most cases, circumcision will only be recommended when other, less invasive and less risky treatments have been tried and haven't worked.

I'm pretty sure they would consider pushing the actual penis a less invasive and less risky way to deal with hygiene.

I wasn't aware that I was asking for your opinion of the policies of Change UK?

_thestudent33 are you Muslim? Even if you are do you not think adults should make the decision rather than children.

this has to be a joke right?

you are not electable.
Not a joke unfortunately, they’re a bunch of 90s throwbacks who do not see the damaging nature of idealistic liberalism and the falsity of the just-world hypothesis.

I'm perplexed as to why a leftist would want to privatise the NHS. Seems OP is very confused and is in no position to start a party.
The NHS privatisation pledge is essentially just political pragmatism.

They know that in order for their party to be formed, that it needs to have a distinct ideological niche as per the MHoC constitution, without the NHS pledge they’d be virtually indistinguishable from the existing Liberal Democrat Party, so they’ve included it to increase their chances of being approved basically.

His party has environmentalist policies and his party is socially liberal. I'd wager the probability of being left wing given those two factors is quite high.
You can be right wing and socially liberal and a environmentalist.

We do not have an official stance on Brexit, but if you wish I will outline my personal stance.
As for leadership structure, at present the three founding members are agreeing on decisions, but we realise that as we become more established we will need to create something. Count it as to be decided; we have other hurdles to overcome and decisions to make before we get there at this stage.

Does this party believe in a so-called “rape culture” - and by extension, if someone denies the existence of such a culture, are they morally equivalent to a rapist?

To Aph, the economic policies section of your party claims to have a desire to “simplify the tax code” - yet you abstained on the Libertarian Party Motion to introduce a flat tax; how do you reconcile support for these two conflicting positions?
