After the Brexit vote, what next?
As the dust settles and the decision of the people of the UK becomes a reality, many will wonder what next? With the Prime Minister announcing his resignation and the Leader of the Opposition losing the confidence of his colleagues, we must consider a future free of the Institutions of the European Union. Never before have we been given such an opportunity to start again, from our towns and parishes all the way to Westminster, we must seek to address the domestic democratic deficit which we have allowed to take hold. With no obvious plan and months of uncertainty ahead, the case to elect Independent MPs is stronger than ever.
As the political parties scramble around trying to work out what went wrong and to preserve their own careers, we must get on with securing our country’s future. If you always do what you always did, you will get what you always got. This cannot be the legacy we leave our children and future generations. Politicians within all political parties are more concerned with self-preservation and maintaining the status quo; we must look beyond that and find new ways of creating growth and stability in the economy, reform of public services and opportunities in education and employment for the future.
This referendum and the Scottish Independence referendum in 2014 have created an awakening amongst the British electorate. An opportunity exists to address how our democracy works. Let’s not miss that opportunity.
The EU Referendum was not the end; it is the beginning. The future of the country is far too important to be left in the hands of the 1922 committee and Parliamentary Labour party. Let the people decide – elect ONLY Independents.

Independents are free to represent the desires and aspirations of the individual and their community, not fodder for a controlling tribal ideology via the chains and shackles of a national party political machine.
Cllr Michael Guest, West Cumbrian Independents
Why elect whipped MPs who cannot be recalled and are powerless when it matters most? Independents do it better.
Recall is a great idea. It should be for voters to decide when they have had enough of their MP.
What we need is a rigorous selection process, run independently from the parties themselves, to ensure that parliamentary candidates are intelligent, have relevant experience of leadership and management, and are of sound character.
First class ideas, about time we saw some policies that will shake up the system.
All strength to your arm. Are we sure that the current flock of MPs will understand true democracy when they experience it. They are such slaves of the current corrupt party system that I have genuine doubts that they will be able to survive the shock.
