A new beginning.
Our nation deserves more. We are better than this. The UK has a proud history of social progress and we need to build on to that tradition and make sure Britain works well to face the 21st century.
The country is holding its breath waiting for something positive to happen. AllianceNow sets out the change needed to bring Britain back from the brink to rebuild and renew our sense of purpose, self-worth as a nation, and our hope for the future.
Effective democracy is the door to a brighter, more progressive future for us all. But our democracy is broken and that future is in doubt.
Millions of us fighting for a better future are being blocked or slowed down by our broken democracy.
Our mission is to repair and rebuild our democracy so that it serves the people of this country in an open, accountable and competent way that builds trust and delivers reliably for all.
We will achieve this through a properly representative electoral system, a constitution with guaranteed rights and sufficient checks and balances to ensure any future government must act reasonably, honestly and only in the interests of the broader public good.
ALL is an alliance of organisations and individuals open to anyone who shares our mission.
The Change Makers
AllianceNow (ALL) is collaborating to improve our country’s politics and governance. We need deep constitutional and electoral reform.
The UK has reached a point where the existing systems have not only ceased functioning for the benefit of our society, economy and environment but have also been corrupted.
ALL has laid out the changes needed to move our country towards a fairer, more inclusive and prosperous future for all.
We will force change on the political parties by creating a mass movement of citizens demanding the change the country is crying out for.
