WHAT IS POPULAR CONSERVATISM ?

 

Mark Littlewood, our Director, explains...

 

"Popular Conservatism or 'PopCon' is about giving ordinary people, taxpayers and voters,  their freedom back. That was what Brexit was supposed to be about: taking back control.

 

Statists want to give this control to a swathe of international lawyers, unaccountable bodies and treaties, anonymous and unelected civil servants, quangos and central government departments.

 

We want power transferred to families, communities, businesses and individuals, instead – but the institutional infrastructure that has grown up in the past two or three decades mitigates against that. If we don’t have a plan to tackle these impediments to freedom, achieving conservative outcomes will forever feel like pushing water uphill.

 

There’s a sense of disenchantment with how democratic accountability has been gnawed away at for more than a generation. PopCon's aim - with your help - is to help overhaul Britain’s creaking and stifling bureaucracy to pave the way for a more peaceful and prosperous Britain.

 

POPCON'S MISSION IS TWO-FOLD:

 

  • first, to inform and educate candidates and MPs about the need to reform Britain’s bureaucratic structures to allow conservative values to flourish

  • and second, to advance these policies across the country, whilst demonstrating their popularity.
