As the other chaps are too self-effacing and as I contributed only moral encouragement and chaired the meetings, James would like it to be known what has actually been achieved at last.

Albion Alliance has now put together a database which you can access by going to our site, going to the tab above “Candidate Info”, finding the HERE link and clicking [or direct here].  It comprises the details of all parliamentary candidates for the next General Election insofar as we currently know them – and we do know them well from various sources but would always appreciate input from you on what’s happening in your neck of the woods.

You can see, at a glance: Constituency, Candidate, Party, Pledge, Majority, Tel No and EMail for you to contact them yourselves, quite a few good souls have already done so and are reporting back via the forum and via email.  We are expecting it to be an uphill battle to get pledges from many for obvious party political reasons.  Some candidates are making statements in line with what we’re demanding – country before party and a dialogue with the people – but have not gone that last step and made a pledge.

As Christmas is almost upon us, we intend to wait until New Year [apart from current letters to various journalists and public figures] to really launch the database and at that time, we’d like all our signatories, fellow bloggers, fellow travellers and so on to help in this campaign to firmly ask from every candidate an indication of whether or whether not he or she will support a voice for the people through supporting any Private Member’s Bill calling for a referendum on our relationship with the EU.

In short, to go or to stay.

We shall be contacting every major press outlet in the land and hope that you too will get behind this.  More on this first thing in the New Year.  Meanwhile, if you have a few minutes, you might like to go in and have a look at the database in its yet to be completed form.
