Our parliamentary system is broken. Something needs to change. As few as 50 Independent MPs could reshape the balance of power in Westminster. We offer a strategy for voters to elect Independent MPs committed to changing the parliamentary system to promote a new form of democracy and an inclusive political economy.

The Independent Constitutionalists UK is an initiative to create

  • a codified constitution that sets out in plain language the rules by which we govern ourselves
  • a new kind of democracy combining effective citizen participation with genuine representation
  • a just economy that addresses inequality and conserves planetary resources

Empowerment through devolved self-government

Your participation

Your participation in this new initiative could help create a culture of political independence:

  • For Citizens – a new kind of democratic involvement
  • For Representatives – freedom to be accountable to their constituents
  • For Local Communities – greater control through greater participation
  • For People and Planet – a sustainable political-economy

We aim

  • to facilitate cooperation among all those seeking genuine political and economic change
  • to use the existing political system to create one of inclusion and trust

By developing collaborative links with like-minded thinkers and activist groups we aim to promote UK wide discussion of key aspects of comprehensive systemic reform of our political economy. Our Declaration of Purpose could serve as a starting-point for an emerging consensus.
