    Hello,

    I read in the YEP that Minister Jake Berry is against a single Yorkshire devolution deal. Given that Osborne stated the northern powerhouse should be locally led and not dictated by London what can be done to achieve a united Yorkshire if such a deal is being blocked by Westminister?


    Is there anything we can do as citizens? I’ve written my MP and all my council wards but I’ve had no solid reply.


    Kind regards,

    Barry

    I’ve never heard of you, until I saw you on my ballot paper. Had I heard of you before I may have given you my vote, because none of the others really deserved it.

    I am very disappointed that you didn’t have a candidate in Middleton. You would have had my vote had I had that option.

    I’m interested in politics, but am so disillusioned with all the major parties, I wasn’t going to vote this election. I wasn’t, however, aware of your party, so will now be searching for information on you and decide if you’re worthy of my vote. I have signed up for the newsletter.

    No show from your party at the Stanley Court event. Poor effort.

    I wish the party every success next week. Re-quoting the UK’s Prime Minister; “Brexit means Yorkshire’s exit from Britain”! There’ll be the world’s first Ridings’ Republic! Pity there is no candidate for Goole, the nearest seaport to the capital city.

    Dear Mr Roberts…The Yorkshire Party..,
    The idea of The United Kingdom is specious and has been made to be since Great Britian or just Britain has a different profile to The U.K as do England Scotland Ireland and Wales The Channel Islands etc …et al… so British labelled goods can still be manufactured anywhere where the Union Jack once flew …it’s a canvas of a Double Cross. A feature or foible of language that the more names you give to something the more invisible it becomes so these titles have never worked for us since they allow us to be de..scribed and rendered invisible.


    When I became aware of the existence of a Yorkshire Party I wondered if it would work or if it could ever work for us …invisibles since England itself has been shorn of its democratic industrial and cultural Identity. . everywhere… we do not exist as a Country because London says so!


    My opinion is that under the present system the representation of our people and our constituencies is foiled by the stark fact that the Westminster system actually works in reverse a top down topsy turvy travesty designed to foil the democratic process and exclude us instead. The Westminster system is a dictator…ship!


    Such as Labours Mr Trickett and his less than honorable fellows are complicit in this deception with almost all of them …?belonging?…. to the three London Party’s have represented Westminster to us and deliberately ignored our concerns. It is noticeable that The S.N.P is the only major geographically representative party working for it’s own Country’s interests in Westminster


    There is no truly Democratic activity in Westminsters London parliament every one of our MPs elected should be having a full time conversation with his constituents and passing the result of our decisions to our (geologically challenged) civil service Why are these miscreants interacting elsewhere with other MPs and claiming it is their vocation being our elected representatives it follows that they gave up their right to their own opinion when they became MPs! i would say it is time we dubed them .. ?our? Constituency Representatives and sue them for their neglect of out representation but they have a Supreme Court ..predictably situated in London to cover up for …them…. and keep us despised deprived and defeated invisibles out.


    Now i have said my piece can you give me another point of view Stephen Round . THE ENGLISH EMBASSY. CENTRAL ENGLAND, YORK COUNTY. PONTEFRACT, ELMSALL, MINSTHORPE, 8, SANDFORD RD, WF9 2XL

    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?
  • commented 2017-05-20 08:58:01 +0100
    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,

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

    Also what is your opinion on farm support ?
  • commented 2017-05-08 13:02:16 +0100
    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, 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”.
