I The State is our servant, not our master

Governments must recognise they may only govern by consent, that the people hold the power over them.

ll People are free

Certain freedoms, rights and liberties should always be guaranteed, regardless of circumstance. Governments must demonstrate beyond reasonable doubt when limiting freedoms that it is conducive to the common good. Freedom of speech, faith, expression and conscience should always be guaranteed.

lll The tax burden should always be minimal

Governments should reduce taxes to a minimum and demonstrate value for money for every pound spent.

lV Property-owning democracy

People should have the right to ownership of property and goods without the burden of undue taxation or predatory practices by larger entities. Cash must also be preserved as a way of limiting the power of the state and other bodies.

V Defence of the Realm

The Government’s first duty is to defend the people from foreign and domestic threats to life, property and liberty.

VI Free enterprise

Regulations should be kept to a minimum so as not to discourage enterprise. Regulations should not benefit larger organisations over smaller entities. The locus of regulation should be on protecting the rights of the consumer and employees from harm.

Vll Certain duties belong only to the State

Only the state should provide defence, policing, judicial functions, border security and prisons.

Vlll National sovereignty

The Government should protect at all times our institutions, democratic process, culture and national discourse from undue foreign, supranational or corporate influence.
