DONATE: Fight back against the authoritarian direction of this Government
The Government clearly does not care about democracy. In April 2022, we saw how they rammed through autocratic legislation without allowing parliamentarians appropriate time to consider and debate it. This is the hallmark of a Government that wants to avoid scrutiny. The hallmark of a Government that wants to dismantle democracy.
As we look ahead, we’re anticipating several troubling new pieces of legislation to be issued by the Government, all of which we believe will further undermine our democracy.
When that happens, we need to be prepared - prepared to campaign, to advocate, to work with MPs and Peers, to galvanise, and to shed light on what’s happening in the media. And in order to do this, we need all the support we can get.
So donate today and help us fend off the Government’s authoritarian inclinations to the best of our abilities.
Legislation on the horizon includes the repeal of the Human Rights Act and its replacement with a British Bill of Rights, which is expected to deviate from EU minimum standards for human rights. We’re also expecting a Brexit Freedoms Bill, which is likely to represent a bonfire of the EU regulations that keep us all safe, and possibly may include provisions that increase executive power at the expense of civil society. We’re also expecting a Bill which might allow this Government to unilaterally walk back on the Northern Ireland Protocol - something that it agreed to in the first place. This would be a disaster for diplomacy and would truly represent the ascent of authoritarianism.
So donate today so we can get to the bottom of what’s to come and tackle it in the best way possible.During regulated election periods the law says we must make sure all donations of £500 or more are from people who are registered to vote in the UK, or companies that are registered and conduct their business in the UK. That's why we ask for your address and a phone number. If the same person donates more than once and their donations add up to more than £500 in the same calendar year, the same rule applies. Donations over £7,500 must be published by the Electoral Commission. Donations we find to be inadmissible may have to be returned.
Outside of election or referendum periods we welcome donations from anyone who wants to help Best for Britain.
