Work Together to Build the Alliance

Political parties that share aims and values should be willing to work together to win and to acheive their shared goals. We are faced with a government determined to sever the UK's ties with our closest allies and neighbours in Europe and tear up our democratic rights and systems at home. 

Parties that share values of openness, tolerance, internationalism and freedom of speech must work together to beat them. It's not easy, but if progressive parties can work together to win elections they can put a stop to this Government's regressive agenda and create a modern, fairer voting system so we never have to vote tactically again.

Labour, Lib Dems and Greens must work together

Labour, Lib Dems and Greens must work together

The last twelve years of Conservative government have been catastrophic for our economy, our NHS and other vital public services.

While more and more people are being pushed into poverty and millions are struggling with a cost of living crisis, the Conservative Government has wasted an estimated £64billion of public money while awarding lucrative public contracts to Tory party insiders, donors and contacts. They have personally broken the law themselves.

But our outdated voting system keeps the Conservatives in power with a minority of votes.

If the share of seats matched the share of votes they received, the Conservatives would have only won 2 of the last 21 elections. Even Margaret Thatcher would have failed to secure a majority.

Right-wing parties worked together to win the last two elections. In 2019, with around 40% of the vote they got 56% of the seats. Opposition parties must beat them at their own game.

Consistently, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and Green Party together outpoll the parties of the right. Latest constituency-level polling shows that by cooperating in just 100 out of 650 seats, they can lock the Tories out of power.

To end minority rule in Britain, add your name to the call for Labour, the Lib Dems and Green Party to work together at the next election, tell them:

I support election co-operation between Labour, Liberal Democrats and the Green Party and call on the leaders of the three parties to find every way to end this government and implement a fairer voting system.

Party leaders Keir Starmer, Ed Davey, Carla Denyer and Adrian Ramsay - you have a chance to come together to put the UK back on the right track. Don't let them win another term.

The Better Democracy Fund



UPDATE - 9th November 2022

In 2022, the Government pushed through several new laws giving them more power to limit the freedoms of ordinary people and act with even less accountability. With your support we got some of the worst provisions in these laws removed but despite this, we are already seeing the consequences.

Peaceful protesters are serving prison sentences, journalists have been arrested for reporting on them, vulnerable people are being held in disease-ridden detention centres and in three months we have had three different Prime Ministers without a general election.

We are campaigning for a general election as soon as possible and the election of a more internationalist government that will deliver a fairer voting system. Until then, we will continue to work against the erosion of our democracy.

The Government is progressing even more legislation that aims to break international law and reduce standards and protections for everyone in the UK. Don’t let them get away with it. Donate to our Better Democracy Fund and join the fight against this attack on democracy in the UK.

UPDATE - 24th June 2022

The Conservatives lost TWO by-elections in one night, only because Labour and the Lib Dems made it clear to voters they were each targeting only one of the seats each. Voters in Tiverton & Honiton were told to vote tactically for the Lib Dems and in Wakefield they were told to tactically vote for Labour.

It worked! But Labour and the Lib Dems mustn’t rest on their laurels, repeating this success will be much more difficult in a General Election. Our polling proves they will need to collaborate to defeat the Government.

Labour, Liberal Democrats AND the Green Party need to make a real pact to work together if they hope to remove this government at the next election. Donate to the Fund now so we can get them on the right track and prepare for the General Election we know is coming.

UPDATE - 6th June 2022

The Prime Minister has won a confidence vote in his leadership by 211 votes to 148, taking 59% of the vote. He's been wounded, but clings to power.

This country needs leaders we can trust, be proud of, and who can give our trading relationship with Europe the impetus we so desperately need.

Our broken system continues to keep this divided Government in power, but with no vision for the country. It is essential that opposition parties work together at the next election to remove this Government.”

Conservative MPs have challenged Boris Johnson's leadership and he now faces a vote of no confidence. Despite enough Tory backbenchers privately growing a backbone, Johnson may well win the confidence vote and even if he is removed, his successor will still be tarnished by the corruption, scandal and economic vandalism that defines this Government. A general election could be upon us sooner than expected.

Now more than ever, the UK needs leaders we can trust, be proud of and who can give our trading relationship with Europe the shot in the arm we so desperately need.

But our broken system keeps the Tories in power on a minority of votes, so opposition parties must work together at the next election to remove this government.
