Powered by the People - A Champion for Genuine Democracy

The upcoming elections offer a significant opportunity for Britain to elect truly independent representatives who genuinely understand and value their concerns; not political puppets that toe the party line dictated to them by whips, donors and vested interests.

John Rees-Evans has been working with a number of parliamentary candidates throughout the country with a view to coordinating a democratic revolution nationwide.

JRE seeks to support candidates that share his distinctive vision for Britain, a vision that is underpinned by an unwavering commitment to protecting children's innocence, defending personal liberties, preserving the use of cash, enhancing our national security, augmenting our prosperity, and safeguarding against the potential abuse of emergency powers that we have recently started to see threatening our established rights and freedoms.

But above all, JRE is looking for candidates at all levels of political engagement, who share the vision that embraces Direct Democracy as Britain's future political cornerstone and that holds the will of the British people to be sovereign: the highest authority in matters concerning the future direction and lead that our great nation will take as we embrace some of the most sobering challenges our world has seen in generations. 

For the electorate, having a truly independent candidate in Parliament whose primary loyalty is to country and the people, rather than to party, offers a unique and powerful opportunity to their constituency. Party-controlled candidates are powerless to act on their own initiative or on the instructions of their constituents. In reality, they answer only to their parties who, in turn, answer to whips, donors and lobbyists. An independent candidate is free to sponsor private member's bills and to fight uncompromisingly for the interests of his or her constituents and can actually wield more genuinely useful political muscle than yet another powerless seat-warmer in Westminster.

Such independents can leverage their access to national media and the machinery of Westminster to work effectively to challenge unjust legislation and to sponsor future bills that will make a real difference in the lives of the men and women that Parliament is supposed to exist to serve, rather than the interests of Big Business that have successfully hijacked our democracy for their own ends.

Our servants in Westminster have long ago forgotten what is truly important to the people of our nation.

One of Rees-Evans' foremost concerns is the preservation of our children's innocence in an ever-evolving digital landscape and at a time when governments are abusing the trust of parents by seeking to socially re-engineer our children to appease special interest groups.

As technology continues to advance, so do the potential dangers that our young ones are exposed to online. Rees-Evans' campaign will fight to implement robust safeguards to empower parents and teachers to protect children from harmful content and online predators, and to prevent dangerous ideologues from hijacking our education system to promote their agenda.

Defending personal liberties is another pillar of Rees-Evans' campaign. He firmly believes in the importance of preserving individual freedoms and privacy, ensuring that government overreach does not infringe upon our rights or that essential service providers do not use their leverage to persecute citizens for their political or religious views.

Rees-Evans advocates for measures that strike a fair and pragmatic balance between security and personal freedom, safeguarding the cherished democratic values that form the backbone of our society, and above all, prioritising liberty of conscious and freedom of speech.

In an increasingly digital world, the question of cashless societies looms large. John Rees-Evans is an ardent advocate for keeping cash as a viable payment option, recognising that not everyone can or wishes to engage in digital transactions, and that the government's digital currency ambitions represent the aspiration for a dangerously unacceptable level of state control that future administrations may very easily abuse.

His dedication to preserving cash usage ensures that vulnerable members of society are not marginalised or excluded from the economy, fostering a more inclusive and equitable financial system, where citizens may continue to live free from fear of the abuse of pervasive government powers.

Additionally, Rees-Evans is a fervent critic of unchecked emergency powers wielded by the state. He understands that while such powers may be necessary during crises, they can easily be abused if left unchecked. He pledges to be a stalwart guardian of civil liberties, ensuring that emergency powers are time-limited, proportionate, and subject to thorough parliamentary scrutiny and the timely approval of the electorate wherever possible.

By actively engaging in this aspect of governance, he aims to protect citizens from potential abuses of power while maintaining an effective response to emergencies.

Furthermore, JRE's background and experience add significant weight to his campaign objectives. As a business founder, mentor, and consultant to new and established businesses worldwide he understands the value of discipline, strategic planning, relationship creation and networking, and the importance of teamwork.

With a keen eye on the future, Rees-Evans proposes innovative initiatives that foster economic growth and job creation in Britain. He envisions the establishment of vocational training centres to equip the local workforce with the skills demanded by emerging industries, driving each constituency's prosperity and reducing unemployment rates. Additionally, he advocates for improved infrastructure and increased investment in renewable energy to pave the way for a more sustainable, cost-efficient, and environmentally conscious future, but without harm to the established industries that have long been the basis of job creation and our nation's wealth.

As voters head to the polls, by selecting a Direct Democracy candidate they are presented with an opportunity to elect a representative who not only understands their concerns but also possesses the vision necessary to spearhead Britain's progress towards a promising future that will exceed the achievements of those nations who democracies remain under the inimical control of vested interests.

Get in touch to learn which future leaders are aligned with the vision JRE presents for a stronger, happier, more prosperous and fair Britain.

The United Kingdom's commitment to safeguarding public health is of paramount importance. With the emergence of various vaccines during the pandemic, it is essential to maintain a stringent approach to protect the well-being of its citizens. This policy advocates for the UK government to ban the usage of vaccines that have not undergone the complete testing process, focusing on ensuring the highest standards of safety and efficacy in vaccination programs.

The British Government's current policy aims to phase out conventional vehicles in favour of electric vehicles (EVs) to address environmental concerns. While this intention is commendable, it is essential to reevaluate the approach to maintain personal freedom of movement and physical independence for citizens amidst the environmental challenges posed by EV battery manufacture.

The UK government shall refrain from imposing lockdown measures during pandemics unless there is incontrovertible evidence demonstrating clear public benefit derived from such actions.

The UK government must act decisively to preserve the innocence of young people by prohibiting the practice of requiring teachers to discuss changing ideas of sexual norms with primary school children. While it is crucial to promote understanding and respect for diverse communities, such discussions at an early age can be detrimental to the healthy development and well-being of young minds. This policy aims to safeguard the emotional and psychological welfare of children, prioritise their innocence, and respect the rights and responsibilities of parents as primary educators.

Recognising that personal perceptions of self-identity can be fluid during the formative adolescent years, the government has a responsibility to protect impressionable pre-adults from potentially irreversible decisions. This policy advocates for the restriction of discussing gender re-assignment surgery with individuals below the age of adulthood (18 years) to safeguard their physical, emotional, and mental well-being.

In today's interconnected world, it is imperative for every nation to safeguard its borders while also maintaining a fair and efficient immigration system. John Rees-Evans and the UK Direct Democracy campaign understand the importance of balancing national security with compassion and fairness towards immigrants.
