Reasons for Supporting the New Party

Opening quotation markI am a competitive person by nature and I believe that competition of all kinds leads to increased self reliance and greater personal fulfilment. Unfortunately, in Britain today competition is actively discouraged and this is reflected in the attitude of many of our young people. We need to break free of the politically correct and interfering nanny state and start acting as proper human beings before we de-motivate and institutionalise an entire generation. I support the New Party because I empathise with its ideals and I agree with its policies.Closing quotation mark
