"Taking the 'Politics' out of politics"

What is 'Politics' and What is politics?

‘politics’ (from GreekΠολιτικάpolitiká, ‘affairs of the cities’) is the set of activities that are associated with making decisions in groups, or other forms of power relations between individuals, such as the distribution of resources or status. The branch of social science that studies politics and government is referred to as political science.

‘Politics’, however, is the game of using the power relations over individuals or organisations to get your own way or to achieve an advantage financially, career-wise or improved status, no matter the cost to the populous. Have you ever heard of a poor Prime Minister?

It is the abuse of political power and the power games played by politicians which has lead to the huge mistrust and lack of belief in our political system and it’s players. Famously, abolitionist Wendell Phillips declared “we do not play politics; anti-slavery is no half-jest with us”. ‘Politics’ as a methodology can work very well for a Government if you remove the corruption part, or as we call it ‘Politics’. NONPOL simply wants to take the Politics out of politicsp

Bring Respect and Integrity Back to Our Political System

The Pandora Papers confirm how much dodgy money there is in Politics. Individuals and Corporations want to buy power. We believe the political system is suffering from Politics and it is time to restore respect and integrity, and at the same time update the currently outdated system. We have the chance here in the UK to fix the Politics in politics. Politicians represent the people, not themselves or corporations. It is a privilege and an honour to be a politician and each MP must protect the interests of the public at all costs. Read more about our views on politics HERE.

Besides being a new party, we are a realistic and balanced party. We won’t get everything right, but we are not frightened to put our hand up and say we have made a mistake or now understand things better. We will always be open to learn from others, especially other parties that have brilliant ideas. We firmly believe that we can best grow from lessons learned, rather than sticking to strict ideals. This attitude puts us above all other mainstream parties that are constrained by their political views and stances. Without these restrictions, we can be very flexible and adjust to the ever-changing environment and situations.

From the beginning, we will always provide transparency when explaining changes to any policies or ideas in our manifesto; a manifesto should evolve and not be held as a gun to someone’s head. As new national and international reports are released, fresh evidence and facts come to light, or as we learn by bringing in more knowledgeable people, we will change our ideas and views in order to constantly improve and optimise our efforts to fix the UK. Our policies, ideas and manifesto are created through a ThinkTank-like process, contributed to by specialists, generalists, critical thinkers, fair minds and intellects. 

Flexibility, honesty and self-realisation are very powerful tools that few parties have today, but we intend to bring these values with us. NONPOL aims to take politics out of government and, by the use of great neutral minds, introduce common sense, intelligence, honesty and collaboration into building an exciting and refreshing future. We are currently designing a manifesto on how we can do this.

Not a Single-Agenda Political Party

Even though we would like to clean up the image of politics, we have a full and extensive manifesto that stands up against all of the top political parties. We also have very new and fresh ideas on how to ‘Fix the UK’.  We are a technology party that is up to date with trends and evolving technologies. See our idea under ‘Digital UK’.

The NONPOL Think Tank

Our policies, ideas and manifesto are developed in a Think Tank-like fashion, through the means of neutral brainstorming among critical thinkers, specialists, great minds as well as balanced and knowledgeable individuals that have a keen interest in Social and Economic policies, issues, solutions and concepts. We aim to always seek the full facts and reality of the issues we intend to fix, therefore we need people from all walks of life and experience to help us do so. Besides our Think Tank, our members will be able to register all their ideas under our DAO.
