Andy Kirkwood was the Movement for Active Democracy (M.A.D.) candidate in the constituency of Reading East in the 2017 General Election. Our volunteers have been adding information on Andy Kirkwood - here's everything we know so far!

Statement to voters

BRITAIN IS IN TROUBLE. Ecocide, debt, rich poor divide, austerity and high taxes are all brought about by greed driven banks and corporations that control every government decision. That is why choosing ‘the other party’ can never effect the simple solutions that stare us in the face.

I am just one of a host of candidates and organisations fighting to bring a ‘Direct Democracy’ to Britain and the world. When that happens, everything changes.

E-Democracy utilises internet and app based methods, embracing and empowering the people with self determination of policy. Truly ‘by the people for the people.’

This is OUR country, WE pay the tax, WE should decide how OUR money is spent.

This statement was added by Andy Kirkwood, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.

Wikipedia

The Movement for Active Democracy (M.A.D.) is an alternative British political party created by Andy Kirkwood in South Dorset. Party leader Kirkwood endorses the Swiss model of government in which anyone can propose a policy and force the issue to a referendum if they can gather enough support. Without having a general manifesto, that's the main goal of the party. Kirkwood also urges people to stand as independents under the slogan "vote for yourself". The Movement for Active Democracy stood candidates for the first time at the 2010 general election. Kirkwood also stood in South Dorset at the 2015 general election.
