Bringing Classical Liberalism to South London

London Mayor Election Interview with David Kurten

We recenlty interviewed the Independent Candidate for the Mayor of London and London Assembly.

GLA Member David Kurten was elected as part of the UKIP list in 2016, he now sits as part of the Brexit Alliance.  David has a local connection to Croydon, working as a teacher at the Royal Russell School.  David has also spoken at two of the Croydon Constitutionalists’ events, discussing Britain’s Opportunities outside the EU, and Freedom of speech.

“I’m very much an outsider against the progressive hegemony which rules politics in the UK and especially in London”

“Mass, rapid immigration has caused unsustainable demand for housing, especially in London where the population has increased by 2 million in the last 20 years”

Sputnik Radio Interview

Mike Swadling was interviewed on Sputnik Radio about the Confederation of British Industry's call on the UK’s government to make businesses aware about potential changes to bureaucracy after Brexit.

“we are talking almost four years now since the referendum, and obviously the referendum had a running period itself, businesses have had lots of opportunities, and I think that most big businesses would have already implemented their Brexit plans”

“The only sensible decision for the EU countries is to have a Canada style free trade deal with the UK, but I’m not sure that they will do that, and I fear that the dictatorship in the Commission may win, but for Britain, it works either way”

“it just depends on whether the EU has any vestiges of democracy left in it or not”

Hope to see you in March and April.
