    Is the Yorkshire Party pro Brexit, or do they wish to Remain.
  • commented 2017-05-24 22:27:43 +0100
    Much of this makes sense (I’m an exiled Scot, married to a Yorkshirewoman, and living in Airedale). I also really don’t want to vote for the personality cult that used to be called the Conservatives, this time around. Can you tell me your position on lawful firearms ownership and use ?


    Thanks

    Hi. As someone who is highly against London centralism and privatising services such as public transport, I’m interested in your manifesto. I was wanting some clarity on where your party stands on immigration?

    I can certainly see the appeal of Yorkshire having more autonomy and would dearly love to have alternative candidates to vote for next month. However, I was really surprised and disappointed that you support HS2. Why? I can only conclude that your transport advisers have only looked at HS2 LTD propaganda when considering the impact of HS2 in terms of the Yorkshire economy, environment and communities. ALL independent analysis of the project shows it to be bad for the region, and it’s ludicrously high costs, which in reality will run to hundreds of billions, will starve other more worthwhile projects of funding for decades.

    This leaves me with the sad conclusion that the Yorkshire Party is probably as enslaved to vested interests or as ill-informed on this issue as the Westminster Brigade which is an awful shame.

    EVERY poll on HS2 in Yorkshire has shown that the Yorkshire people AND Yorkshire business is against HS2 so please would you explain to me why a Yorkshire Party is for it?

    Hi,

    I understand that Matthew Clover is the Yorkshire Party’s candidate for Elmet & Rothwell and will be attending a Hustings at St James Church, Wetherby, on Wednesday, May 24.

    I am publicising this on the Churches Together web site and would like to include a photograph of Matthew. I would be very grateful if you would send me a suitable image for inclusion on the web page.

    Thanks very much,

    Chris Bishop – Chairman, Churches Together in Wetherby, Linton & Collingham

    What is the Yorkshie Party’s policy on Brexit, the single market, free movement and Europe?

    Also what is your opinion on farm support ?

    Why hasn’t Yorkshire/Leeds got a mayor like West Midlands/Birmingham? Shirley I can’t be the only one who thinks that’s a good idea.

    Will the Yorkshire party be fielding candidates for any Leeds constituencies this general election?

    Hi, when did this start?

    So disillusioned with all the parties so believe we need a yorkshire party, SNP gets so much and don’t believe in unity of the country.


    No events do you have meetings??

    Hi, I am just looking around certain political parties trying to make my mind up on who to vote for in the upcoming local election in Doncaster. Having searched your site I haven’t seen anything regarding the hot topic of immigration. I am not here to judge either way, I would just like to know the facts and where you stand on it if possible? Thanks, Jack

    I hope I joined the party last year. I would like to speak to a rep. in person regards the state of education in this country, my reason for joining, seeing the letter in the local press. I wish to write a letter tp the Daily Mail et al about how Yorkshire is back of the queue when it once had the thriving West Riding LA – my freedom, and those of miner’s families. I volunteer locally so can see first hand how many are disaffected, not just the homeless. Happt to make a stand.

    The following appeared in the Yorkshire post today. I do not think this will come as a surprise but I think we should be using the report to highlight the incompetence of the Westminster political parties


    “The devolution agenda is one of a number of areas that has been held back by decades of “tinkering” in central government, a new report claims, as experts warn of the huge amounts of waste generated by a constant “churn” of Whitehall policy. The new study by the Institute for Government (IfG) argues that the “endless” cycle of reform and restructuring in Westminster has come at a significant economic cost to the UK – as well as impacting on communities, businesses and departmental expertise. The think tank points out that the issue of devolution alone, successive administrations have unveiled four different models for regional governance in recent years, ranging from Regional Development Agencies to Local Enterprise Partnerships. And the recent change in government has once again “thrown the agenda into question”, strengthening the think tank’s calls for a cultural shift to encourage longer-term planning and greater stability. “The sheer scale of change to these key government policy areas is astounding – not just because of the costs incurred, but also the effect on people’s lives,” said IfG programme director Emma Norris. “Government can and must safeguard against more wasting time, money and resources on endless changes that result in little progress. “This churn is not simply a result of changes in government. It highlights persistent weaknesses in our system of government: the tendency to change and to recreate rather than commit to stable, well-evidenced policy.” The new report examines three policy areas which it claims have experienced “near-constant upheaval” in recent decades, including further education, regional governance and industrial policy. On education, it notes that the sector has seen the introduction of 28 new FE laws and 48 secretaries of state over the last 30 years, leaving students and employers dealing with a “confusing and ever-changing set of qualifications”. The study also points out that the Government is on its third industrial strategy since the Conservatives took power in the coalition in 2010. It claims that if Theresa May’s plans for a new industrial strategy are to make progress, they must focus less on overturning the work of previous governments, and more on committing to a “clear and consistent” strategy for the long term. On regional devolution, the think tank states that while the commitment to devolving power has endured throughout successive governments, the agenda has been subject to “endless tinkering and change”. “It is unclear how committed the new Prime Minister, Chancellor or other relevant secretaries of state are to the current devolution process,” it says. “If the cycle of churn is to be broken… the current process of devolution to a city-regional tier must be given the stability it needs to develop and perform effectively,” the report concludes”.

    Hello,


    My name is David Rudge.

    I was going to set up “The Yorkshire Party” many years ago. I bought the domain www.theyorkshireparty.co.uk and designed the branding to the site. You had the ‘yorkshire first’ name at that point.

    As I’m not using www.theyorkshireparty.co.uk would you like to buy it from me for say a very reasonable £100.

    If I’m right in thinking your registered with the word ‘the’ and also you’ll find co.uk is more memorable. Or you could haave it forward to your current site. It will no doubt help with brand awareness, search engine optimisation and increase hits to your site.


    If so, call me on 01757 642042 and I can talk about the transfer of the ownership for you.


    Best regards,

    David Rudge


    p.s. I also have some branding and other ideas, which I can share with you for free. As I wont be using them. Thanks.

    Dear Yorkshire Party


    I am a member of the Labour Party who nonetheless wishes you well in your commitment to our county, but do you honestly believe there is any possible chance of you ever seeing the election of a city councillor, let alone a member of Parliament?


    Based on this fact, do you not feel it would be far, far better to work with the two parties – ie Labour and/or the Lib Dems – who are the only one’s capable of challenging the Conservatives in the vast majority of seats.


    Would it not make more sense to become a democratic pressure group and be freed from the hassle, cost and workload of elections and instead free up all those funds for a concerted public campaign towards your goals?


    regards and best wishes

    Hi

    Good decision to change the name and all the best with the new one. I believe that there should be a real connection and understanding between a locality and its political representatives and am always disappointed in local council elections in particular to see that none of the candidates live or are from the area they are looking to represent.

    My thoughts on a NAME CHANGE


    I think a name change would be a good thing. The connotations of the word ‘First’ are off-putting. It sounds like a subsidiary of the far right Britain First party, or at least it seems isolationist in a sort of old fashioned way, like the old farmers on the James Herriot dramas. How about ‘Yes Yorkshire’ or just ‘Yorkshire Region’ or include the word democrat somehow… Yorkshire Forward would have been good but that was used already.


    ‘Yes Yorkshire’ or YY gives opportunities to explain what the party stands for and ‘Yes’ gives off positive and inclusive vibes. Let me explain. A journalist quips “well why why ?” (YY) and there’s your lead in to stalk talking… “I’ll tell you why”…etc


    Get rid of the word ‘First’ it sounds bad in a sort of first, and last, and only sort of way, or it sounds far right.


    Just my thoughts.


    Thanks
