After getting expelled from the Labour Party, is it possible to form a new party. I was thinking of setting up a new Party called Blue Labour or National Labour.

Unfortunately, you would need some major backing to even have a chance to form a new political party, so unless you already have a lot of supporters, and I mean a lot, as well as a clear end goal, you probably can't

Fair enough, I might as well stand as an Independent candidate

Just out of curiosity, how would your hypothetical Blue Labour party be different from the normal Red Labour party?

Possible? Yes.
Likely? No, the logistics involved to establish a national party are insane. It took UKIP 20 years to gain enough attention to be a national party, and they're a rare success story.

It will be socially conservative, pro freedom of speech, anti EU, and pro working class.

Yeah, you’re right in the national and general sense. However, I was referring to the TSR.

i don't know the rules to forming a new party, but what i gather it isn't that simple. can you join an existing one? or is everyone else not suitable to you politically(?).

You should be posting in MHoC then, otherwise people are going to think you mean for real.

Not likely, but the Macron magic certainly did its trick - La République En Marche!

I can’t join the Labour Party, since I got expelled. I will never join the Liberal Democrat’s, I’m not a Libertarian (although I do respect them a lot as a party), and I’m not sure about joining the Conservatives.

As the Posies once said, ‘I guess you’re right’.

i don't know what happened with you and Labour (don't care either) but not sure why you're writing off Lib Dems. i am a Liberal Democrat on TSR and i doubt you know much about my politicals (not trying to entice you btw. just saying).

if i were you, i'd ask the Conservatives? you seem feisty (in a good way). i bet they would welcome you.

Tbf, I would join the Liberals if it was 2005, and Charlie Kennedy was still leader. However, I’m not sure if the TSR Liberal Democrat’s are like the real life Liberal Democrat’s (pro-EU). If they are pro-EU, I think I might be at odds with the Party. Despite voting for the Conservatives in the General Election, I would never really want to join the party.

What's your idea on socially conservative? How would you deal with the monarchy, death penalty, immigration, climate change, religion, taxes, elitism, etc?

I’m pro monarchy, pro death penalty (only for serial killers, terrorists, and those involved in child grooming gangs), I’m for the Australian style point system, I’m pro Christian, but I do accept that people should criticise religion, I’m for cutting taxes (mainly corporation tax and VAT). I’m against elitism (I think the metropolitan liberal elite are too powerful)

unlikely. Plenty of much richer and better connected people have tried.

It seems like the only way to get any ground at the moment is to have a lot of money and latch on to a niche issue that isn't already covered by other parties.

To be honest, it would probably be easier to join the torries/labour, fake it for 5-10 years, try and become an MP, and then if successful, defect to your 'new party'.

Not a party I agree with (being a libertarian) but you could join the Workers' Party of Britain - George Galloway's the leader.
