THE LABOUR PARTY
LABOUR PARTY MEMBERSHIP RISE SINCE BREXIT REFERENDUM 2016
The Labour party is a political group that has had its share of Prime Ministers in the United Kingdom, but even with that balance of the power sharing seesaw, this party has been unable to curb climate change, provide affordable housing or bring down our National Debt to sensible levels. The policies of Conservative and Labour parties - and even for a brief time a coalition with the Liberal Democrats have done nothing to alleviate the poverty trap for millions of British citizens who are effectively, financial slaves.
In our view this calls for a complete overhaul of our policies from the bottom up. We should start at the base bottom to build a solid foundation for a sustainable future. We should not start at the debt laden top and work our way down. Why? Because the system at the moment is unfair. If we start at grass-roots level we can define what is necessary and scrap what is not needed.
For starters, we should declare ourselves neutral and make only what is needed to defend ourselves. In the modern age of robotics we do not need Nuclear Submarines or Aircraft Carriers. There are other ways of defending our soil and providing peace keeping abilities to NATO that are much more cost effective and just as scary to potential invaders.
The United Kingdom has many political parties, some of which are represented in the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Below are links to the websites of the political parties that were represented in the House of Commons after the 2015 General Election:

We are concerned with how the make up of the above parties and (reasonably) popular policies affects the Wealden district, because we are all brothers on two islands in the Atlantic Ocean and what we do or fail to do is likely to rebound on ourselves and our fellow man in other nations around the world. How we act today influences policies in other countries in our global community. It is not just about us and our patch.
East Sussex has five District and Borough Councils, each with a border on the coast. From west to east they are:
There is also East Sussex County Council as the provider of services to the 5 East Sussex districts.
As near neighbours and with councils now sharing facilities and working together, these area of Sussex are included in our remit and an area where climate change and affordable housing are issues that need urgent attention. Where the coastline is a feature in every Council, Blue Growth is a food security issue, especially where this side of of our local economy is under-exploited.
