UK freedom movement formed to promote Freedom Equality and Democracy
Freedom without Fear
Equality under the law
Democratic strength in unity and diversity
We believe in:
1 FREEDOM – that is the inalienable right of all people to freedom of thought,
conscience and religion including freedom to change religion; to freedom of
speech and freedom to hold and express views without interference and
2 EQUALITY – that all people living in the UK are equal under and must be
subject to UK law.
3 DEMOCRACY – the Sovereignty and structural integrity of the UK and in the
right of UK citizens to self-government through effective representative
These principles, that have been shaped by and have helped to shape our society
and culture over centuries, are being eroded both by legislation and by political
inaction, with grave consequences for the rights and security of all.
The UK Freedom Movement will lend its support to any political parties or
organisations that campaign to preserve and act to implement these principles.
1.Freedom – “Freedom without fear”
This freedom includes freedom of thought, conscience and religion, freedom to
change religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others, in
public or private, to manifest religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and
observance 1 ,. This freedom also includes the freedom to mock and question the
basis of a religion 2 . All UK citizens should be free to think, speak and act according to
their conscience and deeply held beliefs as long as those beliefs do not cause
physical harm to others.
Each one of us has the right to express our opinions, including in circumstances
where this may offend others 3 , without fear of interference by public authority, and
the right to be able to communicate our views, through any media and regardless of
The freedom to hold open discussion of all ideas, including political and theological
ideas, is vital to the healthy functioning of any modern democracy. If we silence
those with whom we disagree we miss the opportunity for the truth to expose lies
and for good to expose evil.
These freedoms, already provided under UK law, must be protected.

- Equality – “Equality under the law”
We believe all people living in the UK are equal before the law and must be subject
to and answerable to the law. We do not believe that any other legal authority either
outside or within the UK should have any jurisdiction in this country or make legal
rulings that effect people’s lives and freedoms; this includes supra national legal
bodies and religious courts or councils.
The UK legal system must be impartial and free from political and religious influence
We believe all people living in the UK are of equal value and should treat one
another with respect and charity irrespective of gender, race or religion. 5
We believe everyone in the UK should live free from the threat of terror or violent
crime; security of life and property are fundamental in creating a peaceful and
prosperous society. 6
We believe all UK citizens have the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness” 7 , irrespective of their age or medical condition and should be protected,
respected and cherished. 8
No one should be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home
or correspondence 9 , nor to attacks upon their honour or reputation. Everyone has
the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
True equality is not based on ethnic, sexual, religious or gender identity but on a
shared sense of community based on care for ones neighbour. The primary driver in
the terms of equality must be care for all people; “loving our neighbours as we love
ourselves”. This principle has been at the core of what it means to be British for
hundreds of years. 10

- Democracy – “Democratic strength in unity and diversity”
We see the independent identities and cultures of the citizens of the UK – whether
living in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland – to bring great strength
The sovereignty and structural integrity of the United Kingdom is vital if we want to
see the great nations that make up the UK prosper. We believe the UK to be the
most successful political Union in history.
Whilst not without the stains of nationalism and colonialism, the British people have
contributed immeasurably to good government, democracy, peace, security and
prosperity around the world and of these achievements we can be proud. We want
to encourage a sense of confidence in what it means to be British; our history must
be told – warts and all – but the warts must not be turned from mole hills into
We encourage all immigrant communities to embrace British culture and the society,
freedoms and responsibilities that it provides. This does not mean jettisoning their
own cultures but marrying them to British culture with all the benefits for them and
the wider UK population that this would bring.
We must be alert to and challenge any threats to our democracy, culture, society,
freedoms and way of life whether they be from the far left, far right or Islamic
supremacy. The threats include those seeking to use institutions of State and
democracy to dispense with democracy, exploiting the freedoms we offer and British
tolerance to undermine those very values and deprive others of their rights through
the insidious introduction of undemocratic Sharia Law, Fascism or Marxism.
