Video: Introducing the
Democratic Republican Party
The Future of Your Country
Is this how you see it?
THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICAN PARTY IS THE ONLY ONE THAT ADVOCATES AN ALTERNATIVE
OPPOSE THE TORY ROYALIST GROVELLERS. BRING ON WHIG CONSTITUTIONAL RADICALISM
How is it that in the 21st century the British Head of State is still a Mediaeval Monarch? Everywhere we see the pernicious effect this archaic institution has on the life, politics and wealth of the country.
The fact of having a head of state chosen by bloodline enshrines privilege and inherited wealth as a basic principle of government.
This percolates down through society from top to bottom, resulting in massive injustice
The TORY Royalist grovellers have dominated British politics for over 100 years and have wrecked a once great economy. Now all the main parties conform to the Tory agenda.
The DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICAN PARTY is the party of the great British WHIG tradition of radical constitutionalism and progressive capitalism
We stand for the removal of the monarchy. But we are much more than that. We will implement a full Democratic Republican Constitution embodying republican principles to revitalise our democracy and our nation.
BBC Series's Monarchist Bias Distorts British History
Peter Kellow, DRP Leader writes.
It is one thing to concentrate on the history of the monarchs, it is quite another to totally distort history in the service of aggrandising the monarchy and magnifying its significance and role in events. The recent BBC three part history presented by Lucy Worsley “The First Georgians: The German Kings Who Made Britain” did just that.
The deception is well advertised in the title. The idea that George I and II “made Britain”, is an insult to name of the Britons who truly formed Britain in the seventeenth and eighteenth century.
In the last Newsletter I spoke of the ongoing influence that the monarchy still has in this country, even if their direct political power may have gone by the way, and here in this monarchist propaganda (there is no other word for it) this influence is blatant. a
Basic principle of pensions jettisoned for short term economic and electoral fix
Peter Kellow, DRP Leader writes.
George Osborne’s plan announced in the Budget on Wednesday to free up how people spend or invest their pension pot has been widely acclaimed.
It is said to give freedom to people to be responsible for their own finances and was a long overdue reform. The fact that few doubts have been expressed in the mainstream media shows the extent that the Tory-led coalition’s economic and political agenda has been taken up and become received opinion.
One of the arguments supporting the move is that annuities repayments are now on the floor. Until now when you retired at pensionable age and you took the pension pot that you had saved up, you pocketed up to 25% of it and the rest you had to use to buy an annuity - yeilding you a derisory income ........
Student Loans – The Giant Scam That Robs The Nation
Peter Kellow writes
It was one of the grand projects of current JP Morgan Director, Tony Blair, in one of his previous employments as British Prime Minister: make university education open to the many. The many here was meant to be 50% of the young now going through education. The plan included making students pay for their higher education through loans. In the earlier years of the project, they paid just a little, then a lot, then practically the whole of the cost of the education.
Students now going through university will emerge up to their eyes in debt and this debt will dog them for years. Debt is not a superficial aspect of life. It drags you down. R.W. Emerson whom I cited in Newsletter 109 put it aptly when he said back in 1836 “Debt, grinding debt … which disheartens a great spirit with cares that seem so base..” Debt is a scourge of our lives.
Leaving aside the question of whether we really need 50% of our young going to higher education, let us ask whether there is any alternative to making people pay for higher education and let us ask whether it might be more sensible for the nation to pay for it.
What To Do About The Barclays LIBOR Scam?
The Answer: Ban Securitisation
Peter Kellow writes
I returned from a couple of week’s holiday in the sun yesterday. So for two weeks I saw no news and received no emails. Very refreshing. What was not so fresh was the news that greeted my return. Once again the bankers have been caught up to their tricks of looting their investors and the general public. To anyone outside the world of banking and regulation what they have done, namely fixing LIBOR, the interbank lending interest rate, would be criminal but it seems Barclays may well be let off with an insignificant fine.
You might expect from the national press some interesting new perspective on the banks and their chums in the regulatory authorities and government but all we get is the same old indignation and calls for enquiries and a few stiffer measures to control the banks. The most generalized comments refer to the culture within the banks and this is held by some to be rotten to the core. Well, we can all say ‘aye-aye’ to that
But what will happen to truly curb the banks in their activities? We all know the answer to that. Nothing. Business secretary, Vince Cable, described the problems in UK banking as "a moral quagmire of almost biblical proportions", although he did not specify in which book of the bible such a quagmire is mentioned. In reality this moral quagmire is unprecedented in the Old Testament or anywhere else. Bob Diamond, et al, are taking us into brand new territories of greed, power and moral decadence
