1. Immigration and Nationality
On current demographic trends we, the indigenous peoples of the United Kingdom, will be an ethnic minority in our own country within the lifetime of most adults now living.
In order to ensure our people remain a majority in our own land we propose: firstly, an immediate end to all further immigration for permanent settlement by ethnic aliens, that is, by anyone other than persons of British ancestry; secondly, the deportation of all illegal immigrants, foreign criminals, bogus asylum seekers, hate preaching imams and overstayers; and thirdly, the development and promotion of a scheme of financially assisted voluntary repatriation, open to immigrants not of British ancestry and their dependants only. A dedicated ministry, the Department of Repatriation, shall be established in order to forward this process more effectively.
We shall repeal the Human Rights Act, 1998 and renounce the European Convention on Human Rights. We shall deport all illegal immigrants, failed and fraudulent asylum seekers, etc, to their country of ethnic origin or, failing that, to their point of last departure or, failing that, to any other country willing to accept them.
We shall abolish the institutional discrimination practised by public sector employers, most notably the police, against our people and in favour of ethnic aliens. All appointments and promotions shall be on merit only.
We shall repeal the anti-free speech laws on race and religion, beginning with the Race Relations Act, 1965 and including the Equality Act, 2010.
We shall establish a strong and dedicated Border Protection Force with prosecutorial powers, in addition to police powers to arrest, detain and charge immigrants who enter our country illegally, or attempt to do so, or who illegally overstay, or contract sham marriages with British citizens for the purpose of circumventing immigration law.
We shall restore the primary purpose rule abolished in 1997.
We shall abolish the costly anti-English quango known as the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
2. European Union
3. Economy, Industry and Employment
Globalization, through its deregulation of banking and its off-shoring of jobs to the Third World, has helped bring recession and massive unemployment to British industries and the communities that once relied on them. Accordingly, Patria will erect tariff barriers and establish selective and temporary import and exchange controls, behind the shelter of which our domestic manufacturing industries may again be grown to strength and maturity.
A publicly owned National Investment Bank will provide interest free credit to government in order both to finance the renationalization of key industries, such as energy and to redintegrate the public service infrastructure, such as the railways, upon which they will rely.
We shall ensure that our manufactured goods are, wherever possible, produced in British factories, employing British workers. We have the material and human resources to create an economic and social miracle, a second Industrial Revolution, in what was once and could be again, the workshop of the world. In the process of achieving this the terrible scourge of unemployment and of underemployment, will be ended, bringing secure, well-paid jobs for the many, not the few as at present.
A two year, workplace based, National Apprenticeship shall be established. Jointly funded by government and private sector employers, this will provide an alternative route into skilled, secure and well-paid employment for young people of a practical turn of mind.
We believe that British industry, commerce, land and other amenities belong in the final analysis to the British people. This being so, we shall restore our economy and land to British ownership. We shall give British workers a stake in the success and prosperity of the enterprises whose profits their labour creates by encouraging new co-operatives and profit-sharing schemes.
We shall legislate to ensure that no one who is not a British citizen of at least ten years standing may be employed as a player, manager or coach by a British football club, or represent one of the four home nations of the UK in such a capacity. Similar provisions shall apply to employment in all other sports.
We shall introduce a range of measures to help small family-owned farms, including the establishment of a publicly funded Farming Apprenticeship.
We shall end field trials of Genetically Modified (GM) crops.
We shall prohibit the import and export of live animals for slaughter.
We shall restore British sovereignty over the sea around our islands, reinstating the former zone of 200 nautical miles in which British fishing vessels had the exclusive right to fish. We shall help to restore the British fishing industry to its former importance by making interest free loans available to self-employed fishermen and establishing a publicly funded Fishing Apprenticeship.
All exploitative zero-hours contracts, including unpaid internships, shall be prohibited.
4. Law and Order
We shall repeal the Criminal Justice Act 2003, restoring to its rightful place the common law principle of double jeopardy.
Patria will increase police manpower, particularly the number of male officers. We will free the police and courts from the politically ‘correct’ strait jacket that hinders them from doing their job properly. The neo-liberal obsession with the rights of criminals must be replaced by concern for the rights of victims and of innocent people not to become victims.
We shall restore capital punishment for the crimes of murder and treason. The right of appeal for clemency to the Home Secretary shall also be restored. Corporal punishment, specifically birching, shall be restored as a sentencing option in respect of crimes of violence against the person.
We shall abolish the costly and subversive Police and Crime Commissioners and revert to the status quo ante.
No one shall be debarred from employment in the Police and Prison Services on the grounds of their membership of a lawful political party.
We shall institute a large programme of new detention centre and prison building and greatly expand the manpower of the Prison Service. We shall end the involvement of the private sector in the management and staffing of prisons and detention centres.
Prisons must be run by prison governors and prison officers, rather than prisoners. Illicit drugs and alcohol shall be removed from prisons and those engaging in, or colluding with, their trafficking and consumption, punished.

We shall give HMRC the resources and leadership necessary to prosecute tax evaders, no matter how well-connected to the Establishment they may be.
6. Marriage and the Family
We shall repeal the so-called Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act, 2013 and all Civil Partnership Acts, retrospectively annulling all such combinations in the eyes of the law.
We shall introduce a Married Mother’s Home-making Allowance, payable to married mothers whose children live with them. The benefit will be universal and will increase with each child up to a maximum of three. The benefit will replace Child Benefit and Child Tax Credits for married mothers and will be more generous than these other benefits.
We shall legislate to prohibit courts from routinely holding their proceedings in secret when dealing with matters concerning children. Justice must not only be done, it must also be seen to be done.
7. Transport and Communication
Rail, tram and bus transport will be re-nationalized with compensation paid to shareholders as and where deemed appropriate.

Conductors will be restored on double-decker buses.
We shall abolish the London Congestion Charge and cancel HS2.

The Royal Mail shall be re-nationalized with compensation paid to shareholders as and where deemed appropriate.
Successive cuts in the defence budget have left Britain’s armed forces perilously weak. We shall strengthen our armed forces so that they are capable of dealing with any emergency and of defending our homeland and our sovereignty. We shall withdraw from NATO and bring back our troops from Afghanistan, Germany and the Ukraine. We shall close all foreign military bases on British soil and refuse to risk British lives in foreign military adventures in which no British interests are at stake.
We shall retain and if necessary strengthen, Britain’s independent nuclear strike capability and as in the case of our economy and industry as a whole, endeavour to maximize our self-sufficiency and autonomy.
The wearing of the burqa, hijab and niqab in public will be prohibited.
All forms of ritual slaughter will be banned, as inhumane methods of slaughter, on the grounds of animal welfare. Where such meat is imported and sold retail it must be clearly labelled halal or kosher, as the case may be.
Public institutions, such as schools, colleges, hospitals and prisons, shall be prohibited from providing halal or kosher meat in their catering, other than as an alternative which is clearly identified as such on menus.

We shall establish an English Parliament, to be elected under the First Past The Post system, which will hold its sessions in the chamber of the former House of Lords. A devolved Government of England, with powers similar to those exercised in Scotland by the devolved Government of Scotland, shall be formed by Members of the English Parliament (MEPs) who control a majority of votes in the Parliament for England.
We strongly support the continuance of the Union of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Local authorities shall have a statutory duty to provide a mortgage on favourable terms for this purpose.
We recognize that the theory of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming is both profoundly flawed scientifically and unproven. Consequently, we shall not determine the energy policy of our country with regard to its prognostications.
The Climate Change Act, 2008 and the Climate Change (Scotland) Act, 2009, shall both be repealed.
Wind energy has been an unsightly and costly failure and its facilities shall be progressively decommissioned.
