Laurence Fox Launches a New Political Party – Farage Has Exactly the Same Idea

Pam Barker | Director of TLB Europe Reloaded Project

Suddenly, three new UK political parties are about to be launched in the midst of hideous virus management by Boris Johnson, management which is currently tipping opinion polls in favour of Labour. The three parties are Reclaim (a name waiting official approval by the Electoral Commission) by actor Laurence Fox, the Heritage Party of David Kurten (see below) and suddenly, something as yet unbranded by … Nigel Farage. Who has a lot of form in taking new parties to prominence (UKIP, Brexit Party), and then abandoning them. Farage always manages to leave behind his political whirlwinds a two-party system well intact, a pro-globalist system of two facades that offer nothing to the average British citizen. We are of the suspicion, along with UK Column‘s astute commentators (https://youtu.be/x1L4E0RREuI?t=3436), that Farage may not be what he seems.

Fox, a popular, dynamic younger actor with name brand recognition (unlike Kurten), appears to have got in there first with his new party suggestion. Then Farage jumps on the bandwagon. Funny that.

Notice the Tweet dates: 25th for Kurten, 26th for Fox, and 27th (Daily Mail article) for Farage.

Farage’s record of criticizing government policy over the virus goes back to early March with an interview he gave to Newsweek titled Nigel Farage: Yes, Protecting Us All from an Epidemic Should be Prioritized Over the Economy | Opinion.

Farage hosted a radio show on LBC from 2017 until June of this year. Calling out Black Lives Matter as a Marxist organization may have been the reason his contract was not renewed. See Nigel Farage loses UK radio show.

This Daily Mail report was published 2 days ago: Nigel Farage threatens to launch anti-lockdown party as he hits out at Boris Johnson’s draconian restrictions.

According to Fox’s statements quoted below, and David Kurten’s overt position in his Twitter profile as a pro-life, socially conservative Christian, it would seem they are taking a solidly cultural stance at this point, aiming a blow at the ‘progressive’, Marxist set of values that have long been festering away in our institutions, versus Farage’s focused attack on the liberty-destroying virus measures, a recent phenomenon.

Is this another opportunistic party-for-the-moment to split the right by Farage? We wonder who’s bankrolling him. It cannot be the deep-pocketed Tory donors backing Fox, who clearly resonate to Fox’s bold anti-‘progressive’ message.

(And we highly recommend this piece by Damian Wilson for RT titled Woke Witchfinder General Laurence Fox’s new party could be the breath of fresh air UK politics needs.)

Laurence Fox Launches Political Party to Fight the Culture War

The Sunday Telegraph has quite the scoop this morning: Laurence Fox is launching a new political party.

The actor Laurence Fox is launching a political party to fight the culture wars after raising over £1 million, including substantial sums from former Tory donors, the Telegraph can disclose.

Fox hopes to stand dozens of candidates for his new party at the next General Election to provide a political movement for people who are “tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have, in history, stood together against”.

His aims include reforming publicly-funded institutions, likely to include the BBC, and celebrating Britain’s history and global contribution.

The new party (provisionally called “Reclaim”) could launch as soon as next month. The party’s name is subject to approval by the Electoral Commission. Papers are due to be submitted to the electoral regulator in the middle of this week.

In a statement to the Telegraph, Fox said: “Over many years it has become clear that our politicians have lost touch with the people they represent and govern.

“Moreover, our public institutions now work to an agenda beyond their main purpose. Our modern United Kingdom was borne out of the respectful inclusion of so many individual voices.

“It is steeped in the innate values of families and communities, diverse in the truest sense but united in the want and need to call this island home.

“The people of the United Kingdom are tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have, in history, stood together against.

“We are all privileged to be the custodians of our shared heritage. We can reclaim a respectful nation where all are included and none are ashamed to have somewhere to call home.

“I have been so encouraged by the support I have received by those wishing to add their voices to this reclamation of our values.

“Our country is now in desperate need of a new political movement which promises to make our future a shared endeavour, not a divisive one. This is now my endeavour.”

I’m a big fan of Laurence’s and take my hat off to him. This is an exciting development. But I note he hasn’t said anything critical about the Government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis. So not an anti-lockdown party, but an anti-woke, pro-British party.

Two out of three ain’t bad.

Laurence Fox Has Raised £5 Million From Tory Donors

According to a piece in the Mail yesterday, Laurence Fox hasn’t raised £1 million to support his new political party, as reported in the Sunday Telegraph. He’s raised £5 million!

Laurence Fox is launching a new political party to fight the culture wars named Reclaim, and he has already raised more than £5million.

The actor, 42, has received substantial sums from former Tory donors and hopes to stand dozens of candidates across the UK.

The Lewis star says he wants to provide a movement for people who are “tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have, in history, stood together against”.

It comes as Nigel Farage has also threatened to launch an anti-lockdown party after criticising Boris Johnson’s draconian measures to curb the rise in coronavirus cases.

For anyone interested in joining Reclaim, there’s an expression of interest form here.

Stop Press: Patrick O’Flynn, a former UKIP MEP, has some cautionary words for Laurence in the Telegraph. His advice: sign up Nigel ASAP.

Nigel Farage considering new anti-lockdown party to rival Laurence Fox’s efforts

Fresh off the back of claims Laurence Fox is planning to launch a new political party which will contradict the Tory stance on Covid-19, Nigel Farage has said he could also form a new party to oppose the government’s “authoritarian” measures.

The Brexit Party leader has added pressure on prime minister Boris Johnson by claiming the new measures are a threat to freedom, as sceptics fear a new lockdown to deal with the coronavirus.

The former UKIP leader told the Times that he was not ruling out launching a new anti-lockdown party to challenge Johnson.

He explained: “We stood aside for Boris Johnson’s government, now many are questioning why we bothered.”

Farage’s remarks come on the same day that actor Fox confirmed a TNE report that he was considering launching his own political outfit.

In a statement, Fox said: “Over many years it has become clear that our politicians have lost touch with the people they represent and govern.

“Moreover, our public institutions now work to an agenda beyond their main purpose. Our modern United Kingdom was borne out of the respectful inclusion of so many individual voices.”

Fox is said to have already raised £1 million for the tentatively named “Reclaim” party, which was described by one Westminster source as a “UKIP for culture”.

He hopes to launch the party next month, and the name is subject to the Electoral Commission’s approval.

But in a further split of the right, David Kurtan – a former UKIP spokesperson and a London Assembly member – has unveiled the “Heritage Party”.

On its website, the party claims: “We stand for free speech and liberty, traditional family values, national sovereignty and financial responsibility.”

It continues: “For far too long, the United Kingdom has been led down a path of managed decline by successive governments, and the current government has implemented a terrible and destructive erosion of our civil liberties.

“We are a great nation and we deserve better!”
