Conservative Way Forward is a Thatcherite group within the Conservative Party.


  • Nationhood: Each nation must be free to determine it's policies to the benefit of it's citizens.
  • Freedom: For responsible individuals, guaranteed by the rule of law administered by an independant judiciary and minimal state activity.
  • Democracy: The excercise of political power, with the consent of the people - through regular elections on the basis of universal suffrage and secret ballot.
  • Security: The first duty of the state is to provide external and internal defence on the citizenry.
  • Community: Defined by geography, tradition inheritance and sense of identity.
  • Capitalism: The most effective system of wealth creation. Free markets are blind to gender, race, class or religion.
  • Choice: For individuals must be maximised - even if the state accepts responsibility for provision of a safety net.
  • Enterprise: Fostered by a low tax, low inflation economy - with currency exchange rates determined by the free market.
  • Deregulation: Domestic and global - to maximise freedom of choice and individual responsibility in an improved society.
