C4B has been set up from the political and indeed non-political grassroots. We are not led by current MPs or former grandees; most of us have our main career outside politics. Indeed, we are just what it says “on the tin” – citizens standing up for Britain at a time when our political class has lost the gumption to do so.
We hope to bring in supporters from all across the centre-right and generally from outside politics – people who are not prevented by political ambition from speaking the truth.
Most are still members of the Conservative Party but some of our most prominent backers have now left and joined Change UK – The Independent Group or simply allowed their Conservative membership to lapse. We believe that more will leave the Conservatives unless there is a dramatic change of course.
