Albion Alliance Hacked!

We've obviously got someone peeved enough to hack the site :) but to make sure the message doesn't get completely forgotten, I'm reposting it's mission statement here too.

The key policy statement that the economy must be tackled first and that a referendum be discussed only 18 months after the general election, is fundamentally wrong and unacceptable.

Instead:

1. There must be a referendum on EU membership within one year of a new parliament, including the option of total withdrawal or a trading agreement, in order to “clear the decks”;

2. Given a No vote, then all laws inimical to Britain, both EU and homegrown need to be reviewed and repealed and a fundamental overhaul of all sectors of society needs to be undertaken.

Many of our political leaders are ignoring and even blocking this. The response that it would be electoral suicide to offer the people a voice just doesn’t hold water. It would be suicide not to do so because opinion polls say that we want it. Albion Alliance is also contacting all candidates for the next general election and asking them to commit to this principle:

I pledge to work tirelessly to give the voters of my constituency a democratic and direct voice in the United Kingdom’s continued relationship with the EU, to support any motion for a referendum on that continued relationship, and to vote positively for any Private Members Bill that may call for such a referendum, written in clear concise terms, irrespective of Party Whip and to promote the same, with a view to the successful outcome of this pledge within one year of a new Parliament or sooner.

We are publishing all responses when received – yea or nay – and preparing lists of which candidates said what, to be publicized around the UK prior to the general election.

The people want their voices heard. You can help us by signing at:

  3. I have just re-posted this at my place with a backlink.

    I am SO finished with Cameron and I really wish I hadn't been right about him - one of these days I'll trust my instincts from the outset!
