The PM should resign. Windrush, Grenfell, and Brexit are indicative of an old style of politics and arrogance that must end, says John Nucciarone
Democracy and “will of the people” is not only about and expressed through the act of placing a mark on the ballot. It is about information the electorate has access to and how a government decides to interpret the results of a vote. It is about how a government or even a Prime Minister chooses to achieve a policy and what they ignore in attempting to do so.
The 48% have difficulty understanding how they became beggars at a banquet when the 51.8% was obtained in a campaign where the Leave campaign:
i) purposefully confused the issue of political refugees (Syrian refugees) with the EU mobility right,
ii) claimed Turkey was about to join the EU with its approximate population of 80 million obtaining freedom of movement into the UK,
iii) claimed that £350 million a week would be freed up and made available to our under-funded NHS,
iv) promised that EU nationals would not be used as pawns (imagine the spin in the media and the reaction of a few voters if they had known that Theresa May would utter that Leave campaign policy on this issue was not government policy), and
v) claimed that 700,000 British citizens currently residing outside the UK were denied the right to have their voices heard at the ballot box. Moreover, when May decided to confirm this referendum result in an election she specifically made about Brexit, her government was reduced to a minority. This was in part caused by Labour’s muddying of the waters on Brexit and our country’s future access to the Single Market - a specific strategy adopted to attract Remain voters.
For a PM who closes her eyes to the facts of how the 51.8% was obtained, to subsequently take the next audacious step of ignoring the promises made to EU resident nationals by the Leave campaign while also simultaneously claiming the government was deriving its mandate from the 2016 referendum itself, is simply mind boggling.
This is not only about how the 51.8% was achieved, it is about the society we live in having to accept not only the consequences of
policies it disagrees with being implemented without a mandate but about the individuals making up that society being told that the methods used to achieve Brexit were legitimate, normal, and acceptable in a democracy.
Does the illegality of the Leave Campaign breach electoral laws?
Where does this Prime Minister and her government draw the line?
The Windrush Connection
The method used by a government or any other entity to achieve its political aims is relevant in a democracy.
Inconsistency in positions, irrationalism, and ignoring of obvious facts by a PM or government is neither normal, legitimate, or acceptable in a democracy and can lead to even worse abuses.
A mindset which refuses to recognise the weak foundations of the Brexit project and is willing to close its eyes so easily to illegitimate and illegal aspects, is the same mindset which closed eyes to the misguided policies behind the Windrush scandal.
In that instance, to fulfil a political promise to reduce immigration made to usurp UKIP, an administrative process was introduced at the Home Office to create a “hostile environment” where no reasonable politician or even civil servant could not have known that many legal UK citizens would be found guilty of non-existent crimes.
It is a mindset which ignores facts, regardless of the consequences for voters, individuals in society, trust in politicians, or even trust in the political and legal system in our country.
The Grenfell Connection
The very same mindset underlying Brexit and Windrush reared its ugly head again in the government’s handling of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry.
The May government initially proceeded, before a public outcry reversed its course, to appoint one of the Big Four consulting firms (KPMG) as an adviser to the government inquiry into the tragedy.
What should have raised red flags for the May government is the fact that KPMG
i) audits the parent company of the company which produced the defective cladding put on Grenfell Tower,
ii) audits the builder (Rydon) that refurbished Grenfell Tower with the defective cladding and
iii) also audits the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, which has a management contract to the provider of Rydon’s contract, the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation.
And what should raise red flags with the public about the Cameron and May governments are their judgments on two matters. The first being that the May government needed a public outcry to remove KPMG from the inquiry process and the second being that their inaction on the Big Four accounting firms’ dominant position in the marketplace may have indirectly led to the tragedy.
The connecting factor in Brexit, Windrush, and Grenfell is an arrogance towards both facts and consequences. Our leaders think they can be ignored to achieve political aims, to avoid political embarrassment and accountability, or to simply delegitimise opposition to their arguments.
Mistaking Party for Country
Now, on 12th December 2018, this generation of Tories is delaying the business of the government and the country in order to indulge a leadership challenge. This comes after the PM has already delayed the vote of 11th December on her withdrawal deal.
It would seem this generation of Tories believes that whoever runs the Conservative Party runs the country.
They should not allow May retaining the leadership of their party to provide her a clean slate and safe harbour for a year to berth with the party, the government and its policies.
She may get to press the reset button with her party and this generation of Tories, but she won’t with parliament or the country – whether with regards to her Brexit policies or her government’s integrity.
Make no mistake: if May retains the leadership after this challenge and she loses the coming vote on the withdrawal deal, she along with her government should resign.
It would go against all British parliamentary precedent should she and her government not do so.
The Prime Minister referred to Brexit as a great exercise in democracy. I daresay that under her and this generation of Tories, democracy, rule of law, and respect of parliament and individual freedoms have all been decimated.
John Nucciarone is a Canadian and member of the New York Bar currently living in London. All views are wholly his own.
Renew Deputy Leader James Clarke gives the lowdown from a bizarre day of protest outside parliament.
Today in Parliament Square and College Green, a 'Vote Down the Deal' rally and a 'Brexit Betrayal' counter-protest went ahead in spite of the government's shabby decision to delay the meaningful vote for another day.
On a bright and sunny December morning, the proceedings began well and in good humour, with the two sides (separated by a busy road and two sets of metal and concrete barriers) exchanging Brexit banter.
"You lost, get over it!"
"You WON! Get over it, and cheer up!"
The Remain side had the numerical advantage and also the decibel advantage, with the redoubtable 'SODEM' Steve Bray controlling the mic, leading the chants and bringing in guests, including a cellist and his excellent baritone rendition of 'God Save the Queen'.
"Get a bloody job, Steve!", shouted one passer-by.
"I've got one, and this is it!", Steve replied, gamely.
A slightly surreal and peculiarly British jollity seemed to pervade the atmosphere, with the Brexiteers enjoining motorists to 'Honk if you voted Leave' and the Remainers chanting 'Empty bus, empty promises!' as the oddly passenger-less 'Betrayal' bus conducted its umpteenth circuit of the square.
Tellingly, the Leavers were divided into two groups, an extremely vocal and slightly aggressive group that resembled a Yaxley-Lennon rally and a quieter group, led mostly by women, who kept their distance from both sides.
Tourists looked on bemused at a grotesque model of May, Johnson, Gove and Davis, entitled 'Brexit is a Monstrosity' and Londoners punctuated the day with their passing perspectives.
"Bollocks to populism!", bellowed one cyclist, to no-one in particular.
One unexpected occurrence was the presence of two religious fellows, who were attempting to hijack the politics to spread their message. One, with a battery-powered mic and speaker, exhorted the Remain side to "REPENT OR BURN IN HELL"; the other silently held a placard, warning the Leavers that, 'BEFORE WORLD WAR 3 TRUMPET WILL BE BLOWN EVERYBODY WILL FALL UNCONSCIOUS AND DIE EXCEPT THOSE GOD WANT TO KEEP.'
International journalists wandered through the crowds with curious expressions on their faces, trying somehow to make sense of this strange new country and its unique political street theatre. Westminster now feels like a reality show gone wrong.
These scenes and ones like them are being replicated every weekend throughout the UK and it appears that the one thing May's government has unquestionably achieved is to unite Remainers and Leavers in indignation.
Even as the polls tick towards a People's Vote, it is still a brave gambler who would predict the actions of this volatile government or its supine opposition.
Whatever the outcome, it is clear that the public are not prepared to reward the parties that have turned UK politics into farce.
It's time for something new.
It's time to Renew.
By James Clarke
Deputy Leader, Renew UK
Renew candidate and Cambridge resident Boris Boyadzhiev comments on the need to protect the natural world, both in the way we move around and how we relate to others
Being a keen cyclist and part of the thriving Cambridge community is something I am proud of. My city has been crowned ‘the cycling capital of UK’ for a reason. There is no other place in the country where you can so effortlessly commute or leisurely cruise around on a bike by the river. I am very passionate about promoting the use of bicycles as an environmentally friendly mode of transport - one that is very good for you, too.
Unfortunately, not much has been done recently to promote cycling. There are great proposed schemes like the Chisholm Trail, designed to help you move from A to B without causing unnecessary congestion and pollution, but it will take a few decades to come to fruition. And when the green light was given for a new vital bridge to be built over the river Cam, monster contractor Carillion collapsed, confirming the impotence of the powers that be.
These failures are related to the current state of our democracy. It is ill and dysfunctional. There are experts out there driving around in cars, failing to make decisions on what we need and when we need to do it.
The moment has come to rethink, reboot and renew approaches to issues such as these. Our leaders should let local people decide for themselves. We should stand up and persistently demand a better, brighter future, rather than settling for a vote once every few years. And there is no need for violence and vitriol, since ‘wisdom is better than weapons of war’.
To present people with a sustainable vision for our lives, politicians must engage local communities face-to-face. By learning more about each other, we can achieve balance and harmony. Nature is smart and we should learn its lessons. Planet Earth is our one and only home. Keeping it clean and tidy is the key to happiness.
Don’t think it can wait until tomorrow. Start being active now and join us at Renew to rethink our relationship with the natural world.
By Boris Boyadzhiev
As someone who has lived in London for most of my adult life and an avid cyclist, I am concerned about pollution. With three small children who I cart around in a cargo bike, I worry a lot about its impact on their lungs and mine. We breathe it and we feel the dirt.
9600 early deaths a year are attributed to pollution in London alone. There are 40,000 across the country. It’s a silent killer, but deadly. For the first time this year it was revealed that the tragic death of Ella Kissi-Debrah, a nine year old girl who died in February 2013, would not have happened without unlawful levels of air pollution. That’s a precious life lost to a preventable epidemic.
The current government has not enacted any meaningful measures to address the pollution crisis; indeed, they have only sowed confusion, kicking the problem to local government agencies stripped of meaningful finances and power.
So how do we create incentives for change that are so desperately needed for long term health?
Well, Renew supports a radical clean air act to follow on from the 1956 Act, which was an important milestone in the development of legal framework to protect the environment.
We must invest in clean public transport; not politically motivated schemes like HS2, but ones that will help people across the country to get to work on affordable green rides. Public transport must run with ultra-low emissions within five years to have a meaningful impact on our emission commitments.
Renew will encourage the move to electric cars, rolling out electric points across the country and phasing out polluting vehicles. And we must incentivise delivery companies to reduce road tax liability by ensuring their fleets meet best-in-class emissions standards.
At the local level, we will advocate for air filters in schools that are near busy roads - a short-term solution until we achieve the clean environment of the future.
Radical is the new sensible when it comes to looking after our lungs and our planet. J
Just as we must invest in public health to prevent illness, so to must we stop pollution at its source. Because this is about every breath we take.

Party Leader, Renew UK
Last weekend I travelled to France, visiting Paris and Marseille. Having lived and worked in France, I have a close affinity to the French people and their firm belief in ‘Liberté, égalité, fraternité’. Even arriving at the Gare de Marseille Saint Charles, there is a large sign depicting the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights.
Having followed reports of the rise of the Gilets Jaunes, I wanted to see first hand how this movement was gathering such momentum.
The Gilets Jaunes were born out of a protest against the Macron government’s plan to increase tax on fuel to aid the country’s transition to green energy. The protest was organised by ordinary working people through social media - there is no leader, political party or trade union attached to the Gilets Jaunes.
Since the 17th November, there have been roadblocks, barriers at roundabouts and blockades of fuel depots. These were peaceful protests by working class people; the price of fuel had become one of the major talking points in France.
Sadly, these initially peaceful protests became marred by some unfortunate accidents and incidents, fatally discrediting the movement.
I wanted to find out more about this, so on Sunday morning, I went for coffee in a local bar in a residential area of Marseille. The media was full of reports of the previous night’s violence. The customers taking their early morning coffee were not talking, but watching the news. I spoke to one of them, and he explained how they were angry that the Gilet Jaunes had been infiltrated by far right and far left organizations, and that public opinion was turning against them. The situation had been made worse by the death of an 80-year-old woman caught up in the demonstrations in Marseille the night before.
Why am I talking about this? Well, as Head of Operations at Renew, I firmly believe that the government's Brexit deal is bad for this country. But I am concerned by suggestions from some corners that the Remain movement should become more militant.
The marches and campaign for a People’s Vote have been honourable in their pacifism. They should stay that way.
On returning to London on the Eurostar Monday morning, I read of an impending meeting between the organisers of the Gilets Jaunes and the Macron government. They had been forced, due to the violence of the ultra-left and hard right, to meet and stop the action. In the end, Macron got away lightly, offering only a 6-month freeze, which the moderate leaders of the Gilets Jaunes had little choice but to accept.
The Remain campaign must stick to its principles and not resort to violence. We are getting the upper hand and we cannot allow extremists to infiltrate us. It is not the British way to force change through violence.
Join me outside Parliament on 11th December to protest against the Government's Brexit deal. Sign up here and give a small part of your time to voice your opinion against the Deal.
by David Britten
Head of Operations, Renew UK
With no time left to get a good Brexit deal, the government is pressing closer and closer to a hard, harsh Brexit.
No one is happy with the deal - the government is in chaos. It's time for the people to take back control.
It can happen - the ECJ advocate general's legal opinion states that we can withdraw Article 50 without the approval of the EU.
Now is the time to demand a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal - with an option to Remain - by writing to your MP today.
It is not only British politics that has heated up in the past two years. 2018’s scorching summer was a due reminder of what is to come if we do not rapidly transition to clean energy and requisition carbon from the atmosphere.
It was in this context that Sir David Attenborough spoke at UN-sponsored climate talks in Poland this week. By taking the ‘People’s Seat’ at the conference, a national icon hopes to convey the urgency that people in Britain and around the world are starting to feel on the need to tackle climate change.
That urgency could not have been clearer on Saturday 24th November, when I travelled down to Westminster for Renew’s inaugural National Assembly.
This event symbolised a sea-change in British politics, as ordinary people from across the spectrum came together to celebrate the growth of a new force ready to discard ideology in favour of science and progress.
Meanwhile, just outside our venue of Westminster Central Hall in Parliament Square, protest group Extinction Rebellion were taking to the streets to combat climate change.
This was a different kind of congregation. Activists were holding up traffic, marching across bridges and generally being as loud as possible so that people might take notice of their cause.
Meanwhile, in Australia, school children feel the need to walk out from school on strike because they feel that their future is being out at risk. Closer to home, ordinary people must campaign against multi-national companies seeking to frack our precious countryside for gas at a time when clean energy is growing ever cheaper and has the potential to create more jobs.
I am Renew’s environmental advisor and run the environmental think-tank Carbon Tracker Initiative. I know as well as anybody the immense challenge of climate change, so I fully understand the frustrations that have led to the Extinction Rebellion’s tactics. The situation is really dire; we have left it so late that we have a limited window to act and we face huge disruption because of it. Around the World we are already seeing extreme weather events, such as wildfires in California, hurricanes and, closer to home, extreme heatwaves, flooding and storms.
So I get the reason for Extinction Rebellion. We really need to wake up and smell the coal.
The irony is that we have the clean technologies to tackle this and create high quality jobs, clean growth & prosperity for our country.
Luckily, Renew is an example of the kind of radical thinking we need. It’s a chance to listen to the people and reboot politics in the age of global warming, setting our country on the road to clean growth and prosperity.
A party unbound by ideology or donor promises will not subsidise filthy fossil fuels. It’s much more likely to rapidly expand investment in offshore and onshore wind power - an economically sound decision as well as a clean one. And it’s much more likely to embrace modern technology like electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles since it sees opportunity in invention. This technology can provide alternative clean, cheap and effective transport for the people of this country.
By backing a party like Renew, we embrace the immense environmental challenges that face our nation and our species. If we continue to run from them, I’m afraid that a few blocked roads will be the least of our worries.
By Anthony Hobley, Renew Energy & Environment Advisor
The cost of subsidies for offshore wind farms have fallen by half since 2015, with prices per megawatt hour falling below new nuclear power and gas for the first time. 
In July 2017, the government awarded contracts - ‘contracts for a difference’ - to two firms at a record-low fixed price of £57.50 per MWh for 2022-23. Under the new subsidy programme, which is designed to support investment in renewables, schemes are paid a pre-determined fixed price per unit of energy produced, giving investors the guarantee of steady returns - if wholesale prices fall below the set rate, schemes are paid the difference. If prices rise above the set rate, they must pay back the difference. Most contracts issued under the CfD (contracts for difference) scheme last for 15 years. Initiatives of this nature are valuable as they help reduce the cost of borrowing, which ordinarily accounts for a significant proportion of total costs for low-carbon energy firms. 
This makes offshore wind one of the cheapest means of electricity generation in the UK, alongside onshore wind and solar power.  The industry is also moving towards being entirely subsidy free in Britain - the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has said it expects wholesale prices to fall to just £53 per MWh from 2023 to 2035,  meaning that today’s £57.50 per MWh contracts are less than £5 per MWh above these projected wholesale costs.  By comparison, the new Hinkley Point C nuclear plant receives subsidies of £92.50 per MWh.  Deployment at a rate of 4 GW per year in Europe is necessary to continue the downward trend in price. If this is maintained, offshore wind could be widely competitive with traditional power sources in just a few years. 
A 2017 report published by BVG Associates titled “Unleashing Europe’s Offshore Wind Potential” found that it would be possible for the UK to increase its offshore wind capacity by up to 5 times by 2030, and that the nation’s resources are among the most economically attractive in Europe. A total capacity of 25 GW could be installed along UK coastlines by the end of the next decade, via the use of larger offshore wind turbines, each with a capacity of 13MW - the largest in use are currently 8MW. This would be enough to power 20 million homes, or around 75% of all households in the UK. The report confirms that the dramatic cost reduction in offshore wind over the last few years can be translated into large quantities of clean, reliable and cost-effective energy for the UK. 
According to the Director of RenewableUK in response to the report’s findings, it is important for the government to continue holding ‘fiercely competitive auctions for financial support, as well as putting offshore wind at the heart of its upcoming Industrial Strategy’. It is hoped that a clear policy direction on the industry will attract billions of pounds of investment. 
The government has confirmed plans to hold competitive bi-annual auctions for offshore wind facilities, which it is hoped will provide firms with greater certainty regarding investment decisions. The next auction is currently set to be held in May 2019, and will also include onshore facilities in remote areas. £557m of additional funding will be made available in advance of this. Offshore wind currently accounts for around 6% UK power usage, though these plans are expected to double this to 12% over the next 10 years. 
As the North Sea oil field approaches depletion, the UK is becoming more and more reliant on imported energy; since 2004, the UK has been a net importer of energy, with just under 40% of all energy coming from imports in 2015. Renewables produced domestically provide an opportunity to reduce our reliance on imported energy, allowing for greater energy security and leaving us less vulnerable to geopolitical events and fluctuations in the global market.  Furthermore, a report by RenewableUK found that British companies already provide close to 50% of British offshore wind power, and investment in the industry is helping to support over 600 companies across the UK. A further £17.5bn investment is expected over the next four years, which it is hoped will help to reinvigorate local economies and grow the UK’s manufacturing sector. 
Competitive auctions will allow the UK to remain a world leader in offshore wind power generation. For example, the UK was responsible for installing 53% of Europe’s net 3.15GW offshore wind capacity in 2017.  This provides a valuable opportunity to gain a share of the now $300bn global renewables industry , by exporting renewable energy as well as cutting-edge technology to other countries wishing to follow suit, among these being China, India, Taiwan and the USA.  A 2013 report from the IPPR stresses the importance of ensuring that a high proportion of related technology continues to be produced in the UK in order to strengthen and grow the local supply chain. Importing components manufactured in other areas significantly reduces the local value of the industry. The report also outlines the industry’s potential to help rebalance the UK economy by promoting industrial growth in the North. 
In light of recent findings regarding the cost and economic opportunities associated with offshore wind power, the government’s continued pursuit of nuclear development is becoming increasingly questionable. 
In the second instalment of a two-part article, Renew candidate Tim Fisher concludes the story of his Renew journey so far
Now, when movements like Renew start up, there will always be an element of railing against the establishment. Yet what seems to be different here is the message of hope twinned with a desire to do things differently. To be better.
This also isn’t a single-issue protest movement and it goes way beyond Brexit. For me, the vote to leave the EU is a symptom of a deeper malaise. I believe people feel unrepresented and unsupported. They feel that no one cares or is even interested in them and that is what prepared the ground for Brexit. The Leave campaign was then able to manipulate all of that despondency and downright hopelessness, ultimately stealing the referendum. Whether we leave the EU or not, that malaise will still be there festering until we do something about it.
If anything, tackling that head-on has become a question of national importance. Those who seem to think they have the inalienable right to be in charge have done nothing over the last thirty years to improve the situation. There are parts of the country that missed the Cool Britannia vibe of the Nineties, where people struggle to put food on the table. In a rich country like ours, that is simply unforgivable. Successive governments have not solved these problems; they have only applied sticking plasters which fell off immediately when tugged by austerity.
Listening to the speeches at Renew’s Inaugural Assembly, I not only heard sensible, honest people - people like me, talking with passion about how we can be better. I also spoke with people brimming with ideas about how we could achieve it.
It is early days and many of those ideas still need to be fleshed out, but the vision is there…and as any successful person will tell you, the vision needs to come first.
We are also going to do it the hard way, starting from scratch, because trying to drive change through the established parties clearly hasn’t worked. I don’t want to speak to people on doorsteps and be compromised from the start. It will be hard, but there needs to be a clean break – otherwise, we just end up perpetuating the things that aren’t working. We need to start anew, with integrity, hope and without the baggage of the past.
These are dark days for the country - there is no other way to put it. We run the risk of doing ourselves untold harm and the people charged with governing us appear to be the crux of the problem.
But for me – there is a glimmer of hope. A sliver of light in the darkness. While there are people who recognise things must change and are willing to put themselves out there to do it, I say there is hope for us all.
It’s time to reject the lies, take our country back and make it a better place for everyone. And if enough of us stand up and say “enough”, we will do just that.
It’s time to reboot Britain.
It’s time to Renew.
By Tim Fisher
In the first instalment of a two-part article, Renew UK candidate Tim Fisher sets out his motivation for getting involved
Like many people out there, the goings on in the country over the last couple of years have led me to really question the views I hold and why I have them. One of the things this period of introspection has unexpectedly thrown up is the stark realisation I’ve never actually been in favour of anything politically.
When I first voted in 1997, I voted Conservative and I’m not sure I was voting for anything the party said in particular. I suspect I was just voting against New Labour. That was probably only because I came from a pro-Conservative family, and, well, that’s how we always voted.
Even when David Cameron’s Tories first won enough seats to form the coalition with the Lib Dems in 2010…I wasn’t voting for them per se. I was just voting to get rid of a Labour government that I thought had run out of steam. There wasn’t a particular message to get behind and I certainly don’t remember any of the arguments during the campaign; just the horse-trading that formed the coalition and latterly killed off the Liberal Democrats as a meaningful force in British politics.
During the Scottish independence referendum, I didn’t get to vote as I live in England, but I was fully caught up in it as my family all live in Scotland. While I’m all for the Union, again, there wasn’t nearly enough of a positive message there. In my mind, independence clearly wouldn’t work without much unnecessary hardship for those least able to cope with it. That the nationalists appeared happy to spout any old lies to achieve their ultimate goal was deeply distasteful and set an unfortunate precedent for the future. I sided with the current state of play because the alternative was, in theory, utterly unpalatable. The argument for leaving the UK wasn’t made sufficiently well to justify any change to the status quo and most Scots agreed.
And again…during 2016’s EU referendum, I wasn’t so much in favour of staying in the European Union, I was just against leaving. And look how that panned out.
By the time Theresa May called her somewhat abortive snap election in 2017, I’d lost the will to live a little bit… and found myself voting against the two major parties because neither of them had anything useful to say. The Conservatives were trying to shore up a weak position to sort out a mess they had created, and Labour, frankly, is ultimately a hard-left protest movement, standing against things rather than having a positive message of their own. Unfortunate really, as my MP seemed to be actually be one of the good ones.
It is wearing to always be against things and never for them, to be continually negative and critical or simply observing those playing the game to win rather than achieving anything useful. I am rapidly coming to the conclusion this is part of the reason that political discourse in the country has reached the base level it has and why we have the representatives we do.
Against this backdrop, it is unsurprising many people find themselves politically homeless, despairing of those who are supposed to govern us for the common good. Finding themselves continually complaining about how politicians are dishonest, lazy, self-serving, incompetent and never get anything done. At this point, I will say it is probably a little unreasonable to level this accusation at all the individuals in public life as there are always exceptions to the rule. But I’m telling you how I feel; I’m not saying it’s fair.
Luckily, despite all this, I found Renew.
A positive message appeared on my Twitter feed one day, about some people who wanted things to change. Normal people who had just had enough. I looked into it. I went to a couple of meetings and listened to what they had to say. And for the first time, I thought here is something I can support...
