The Better Democracy Fund

UPDATE May 2022 - New Best for Britain poll shows opposition parties can win if they work together

To win, Labour needs to do what the Conservatives most fear them doing, and that’s working with the Lib Dems and Greens at election time. The parties on the right reliably stand down for each other to secure majority governments on a minority of the votes, and our data shows that the safest way for opposition parties to defeat this corrupt and failing Government is to stand aside for one another in the seats they can’t win.

It is time the opposition parties did the grown-up thing. It is time for them to choose to work together to win the next election. It's the only way to fix our broken system and get a better democracy and a better future.

We know this can work. We know how to do it. Find out more.

Best for Britain stands for cooperation, and working together. These same values apply to politics. We want to see parties and campaigners like us working together to get what's best for all of us. 

This government passed the Elections Act to extend the unfairness of 'safe seats' to other types of elections that already have proper modern, fairer voting systems. And to reduce the power of the Electoral Commission to hold politicians and parties to account. Parties need to work together so they can win together and make elections fairer - together. They need to undo what this government has done.

We know this can work. We know how to do it. Find out more.

When we work together, we win. It's as simple as that!

Together we will bring together people and parties from across politics to work together to build a better democracy.

UPDATE - it’s March 2022

It’s now March, and partygate seems to lie forgotten.    

British politics may be focused on Ukraine - and rightly so. But we must stand up to corruption and authoritarianism wherever we find it. It does not bode well for our objectives abroad that our elected leaders are yet to receive so much as a slap on the wrist for all their rule breaking and bending at home. 

In fact, it doesn’t bode very well for democracy at all - and we need to do something about this.

7 December - UPDATE: Video of No10 staffers laughing about lockdown Christmas party

...now we must persuade opposition parties to get together to remove this government

Leaked footage from inside 10 Downing Street of Boris Johnson's closest aides laughing about the party they held last Christmas has emerged. While the rest of us were in lockdown and unable to meet loved ones, this government thought the rules didn't have to apply to them.

2nd July 2021 - UPDATE: Labour WIN in Batley & Spen By-Election

A long and hard-fought election resulted in Labour keeping hold of the seat by just 323 votes. This is a win for openness and tolerance, but it didn't need to be such a tight race. George Galloway's campaign squeezing Labour's vote shows just how important it is for the pro-internationalist parties to work together at elections. We will work hard to show the parties how to cooperate!


18th June 2021 - UPDATE: Lib Dems WIN Chesham & Amersham By-Election 

A stunning victory for Sarah Green and the Lib Dems in Chesham & Amersham shows just what can be achieved. We look forward to Batley & Spen where we wish Kim Leadbeater good luck on 1st July 2021. 


12th May 2021 - UPDATE: The Chesham & Amersham by-election has been announced.


9th May 2021- UPDATE: IMPORTANT NEWS: The government is planning to bring forward plans to change voting systems across the country back to First Past The Post - all because Labour won some of the mayoral elections!

Please support our work to ensure that no part of the country returns to this older system. The United Kingdom stands alone in its use of FPTP, with the only other European country still using it being Belarus. Everything raised by the 'Better Democracy Fund' is used by Best for Britain to bring progressive parties together or to campaign for a change in our voting system, to make all votes count.


6th May 2021 - UPDATE: By-election in Batley and Spen likely, following Tracey Brabin's successful bid to become Mayor of West Yorkshire. This is the seat formerly held by murdered MP Jo Cox.
