A democratic crisis is engulfing the UK

Brexit has proven how broken our political system is. People, communities, and our elected representatives in Parliament have been shut out of the process from day one. We were promised an opportunity to build a new Britain, instead the same old elites have taken back control for themselves.

Right now, the government are clawing back powers from Scotland & Wales, and giving ministers shocking new powers to attack our rights. The drive towards a handful of ministers taking more and more powers at everyone else’s expense isn’t new, but Brexit has turbocharged it.

It’s time for a new constitution, one where we take control - over our lives, over our communities, over an out of control executive and a powerless parliament. A new constitution is the only way to create a fairer society where politics works for people.

Add your support to create a new constitution that:

  • Protects hard-won rights
  • Puts power in the hands of local communities
  • Curbs the influence of the most powerful on our political system
  • Brings in a fair voting system, where proportional representation makes votes matter
