Helping to fix broken Britain by targeting the root cause of our decline rather than trying to fix the symptoms.
Favourite politician in history:
Flying, sailing and annoying people by playing my accordion loudly
“I take toleration to be part of religion. I do not know which I would sacrifice: I would keep them both: it is not neccessary that I should sacrifice either” - Edmund Burke
IF party politics was working in this country today, we would still be referred to as Great Britain. That is patently not the case and, indeed, neither should it be.
Financial failure of our banking system, moral failure of our parliamentary system and weak leadership of the Christian church in failing to provide a spiritual and moral compass has rendered Britain bankrupt.
We constantly hear from political parties how their way the is best to treat symptoms, but it seems none of them has the courage to face up to mentioning the root cause of the problem - our societal neglect or rejection of the Christian God with the false gods of humanism and atheism disastrously filling the vacuum.
When Britain was known as a Christian nation, we prospered. Innovation and manufacturing provided wealth, and the British welfare and judicial systems served as models to developing nations, we also educated our young people to the highest standards.
To our shame we now head up league tables for abortions, teen pregnancies, STIs and widespread debt and depression, not an attractive legacy to leave to our children or boast about.
During the Second World War, our national leaders, (church and secular), called this nation to prayer; the churches were filled and, as a result, Dunkirk, D-Day and the Battle of Britain attest to God’s deliverance from the evil of Nazism.
If elected to represent Salisbury in Parliament, I will work tirelessly to bring Almighty God back into the life of Westminster.”
