Very quietly, and without fanfare, media attention, or public announcement, the Government has just made it a LOT easier for us to stand up to and end this pantomime plague nonsense. Buried deep within pages of official legislation released last week is the announcement that the Government has now reduced the number of necessary nominations to stand for a political position - whether council, parliamentary, or mayoral - by up to 90%.
You may feel a bit underwhelmed at this point; that was quite a build up, you may be thinking, to a rather anticlimactic announcement... But do allow me to clarify. One primary reason politics is such an old boys' network and closed shop is because to stand for any position, you've previously needed to get an almost unattainably high number of nominations from the local populace.
If you wanted to stand for council, for instance, you needed ten local nominees. That's not ten from your local borough or town, but in your tiny local council ward (e.g. I live in the town of Huddersfield, in the borough of Kirklees, but my local ward is "Crosland Moor and Netherton", which comprises about three streets).
In an age where most people don't even know their next-door-neighbours, knowing ten people well enough in your immediate locality to get them to endorse you for a council position, is vanishingly rare. And if you wanted to stand for Mayor, you were looking at 100 nominations!
These all-but unattainable figures have been a major obstacle to new voices entering politics, and have helped to maintain a compliant status quo, as only establishment players with connections could get the nominees they needed.
All that has just changed. Given the defining rules of "the pandemic" - where social contact is forbidden - the Government couldn't really be seen to be encouraging people to network and connect to the extent of getting 10-100 nominees (which would mean talking to dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of people). So, they've quietly reduced it.
To stand for council in your local ward now, you only need two nominees (and for Mayor, it is down from 100 to 10). This could be a huge game-changer - because imagine if every council ward in the country had an anti-lockdown candidate option!
Now they can have. Standing for council is really simple now the nominees have been reduced - it's effectively just a matter of filling in some paperwork. It's not a high-profile position like standing as an MP, and you don't need to do any campaigning or expect your face to be plastered all over the papers. You can be what is known as a "paper candidate", which is pretty self-explanatory - a name on the piece of paper in the ballot box to give people an anti-lockdown option.
Please consider joining the Freedom Alliance political party - www.freedomalliance.co.uk - and standing as a candidate in your local ward. Like I said, standing is not time-consuming or high-profile, but what it does do is give a political voice to those who oppose lockdown and vaccine mandates/passports at the elections in May. If there are millions of votes for such candidates, this cannot just be ignored and it will throw a major spanner in the works for the current plans of never-ending lockdowns, tests, masks, vaccines, etc.
Please do consider getting involved, and you can find out more about standing as a candidate by emailing the party directly on email@example.com
Thank you 😊
(P. S. You don't have to stand in the immediate area where you live. I myself am standing in the Shetland Islands 😁)
