This week the government published the Elections Bill

Being frank, this is an attack and afront on our democracy.

The introduction of voter ID is the headline-grabbing element of the Bill and is indeed very worrying. But it is only a small part of this attempted power grab.

This Bill if passed will fundamentally change the way the UK conducts elections and seriously threatens to limit democratic participation.

It would shut out and silence diverse voices from expressing views on parties and candidates at elections. It would make it difficult to run tactical voting campaigns. And organisations like Best for Britain, trade unions and charities will see the rules stacked against them.

We have seen similar partisan power grabs with electoral legislation in the US and it is part of a worrying trend around the world.

The Elections Bill, when placed alongside the Policing Bill that bans 'noisy' protests and the new extreme Borders Bill that criminalises seeking asylum in the UK - possibly breaking international law in the process, highlights what we're facing.

This Government is seeking to limit freedom of speech, limit the voices that can be heard in our elections and national debate and limit freedom and compassion of all kinds.

It is clear with the publishing of this Bill, that we need every party in the House of Commons to work together to defeat this bill. 

That is why we need YOUR support.

Earlier this year we launched the ‘Fight the Bill Fund’ with all funds raised supporting the campaign against the government's regressive policies. So far we have raised over £28,000. And we thank all those who have given so far.

However, we still need to raise another £7,000 by the end of July to meet our target.  <[link removed]>

I won't lie to you, we need all the support possible to fight this Bill. This will be a David VS Goliath fight. Will you support us to fight the Elections Bill?

Defeating this Bill will not be easy. The government has a large majority and we need all those in and out of parliament to start working together if we have any hope of winning. 

However, we know that this is the right fight to be in because our democracy is worth fighting for.

If you are sick, tired, and downright angry about this regressive government’s policies. Then it is time to stand up, join the fight and support Best for Britain <[link removed]> as we take the fight to the government.

I hope you will join me in the fight to save our democracy. 

Best wishes,
