Politics is broken.
Let’s change it.

There is a different way.

To change our broken politics, we need a different culture. The Independent Group aims to reach across outdated divides and tackle Britain’s problems together.

We all have the right to be heard. We can all make a difference. Sign up today to find out how you can join this movement for change and bring hope back to the country.

Our country faces enormous challenges.

Brexit has exposed all that is wrong with today’s political parties. But our country faces challenges that go deeper than Brexit. Our economy is underperforming. Too many of us live in poverty, or struggle to make ends meet. While our society ages, many of us are worrying about how we will look after our families. Crime is on the rise. Our place in the world is uncertain and the risks to our environment are growing.

The Conservatives are captured by their right-wing, Labour by their hard left, and all put their own party interests before what is best for the country.

It’s time we changed our old-fashioned politics for politics fit for the 21st century.

Don’t give up in the face of messy, frustrating politics. Join us and help change our broken politics for the better.

Petition – Time to decide on Brexit

The time has come for us to decide – and stop this disastrous Brexit process.

The House of Commons has voted against Theresa May’s deal – twice – and has voted to rule out a catastrophic ‘no deal’ Brexit.

Parliament must now instruct the Prime Minister to seek an extension of Article 50 so that MPs can settle the terms of a People’s Vote as soon as possible, with a referendum no later than 30th September 2019.

Petition – End the benefits freeze

Please sign our petition to scrap the benefit freeze. Increasing working age benefits would lift 200,000 people out of poverty.

All policy should be evidence-based. There’s no reason to persist with the freeze. The Chancellor should look at the evidence, and end the freeze at the Spring Statement this April.
