Blue Revolution is a political platform which aims to bring an end to the party political system by enabling as many like-minded people as possible from as wide a variety of backgrounds to stand for elections at every administrative level from Parish to Parliament. This is achieved by the simple means of authorising the use of the platforms emblems to those who endorse the Blue Revolution “core values” and five manifesto pledges.
When you vote for a Blue Revolution candidate you can be sure you will be electing a truly independent councillor who is answerable to you the electorate and only you. They will not be answerable to the group leader. They will be free to vote based only on the needs of their ward.
The only way we can begin the process of systemic change is to register as a political group with the electoral commission and then once elected free our councillors to vote how they wish.
We aim to start this revolutionary process at these Council Elections.
Of course, for us to truly change the political system we need to have as many elected councillors as possible. So we now not only ask for your vote, but we ask for you to help us change what is a very ineffective political system.
If, like us, you do. You are in luck because Blue Revolution is a political platform that is working within the system to change it. Our elected councillors will be much more representative.
Our first step in this revolution is to campaign to remove the whipping system from politics. This means that political parties and groups will no longer be allowed to force, conjole or even bully elected individuals into voting in a certain way.
Once the whipping system is gone, you will have truly independent elected representatives. Politicians will have to vote on their conscience and not ‘follow the party line’.
By electing Blue Revolution candidates you can be sure they will be representing you because we will never tell our members which way to vote.
Independents after the election will have to form groups to get on committees and will have a leader who usually tells its members how to vote.
The traditional political parties have favoured the whipping system for many years, done nothing to change it and have always been conflicted between their party and the people.
Blue Revolution ‘works the system’ by going into the election as an electoral commission recognised political group. Once elected this enables our councillors to promote their independents and thus to vote freely and to truly represent you.
