Laurence Fox news: Actor launches Reclaim Party to fight woke culture | UK | News (Reports)


The actor shot to political prominence in January after appearing on an episode of BBC Question Time. He’s since become a high-profile campaigner against what he calls the “exponential march” of the “woke religion”.

Over the summer Mr Fox launched the Reclaim Party, a new political faction dedicated to fighting radical identity politics and conserving British history.

Speaking to he revealed the party is looking at standing candidates in upcoming elections.

He commented: “What essentially at the moment, because we’re also going through the electoral commission, is to be a powerful movement with the fangs of standing people should we want to stand them.

“I have quite a solid plan of what I’m going to do.”

Mr Fox argued a new party is needed as the Tories are no longer representing conservatism.

He said: “The conservatives aren’t being remotely conservative.

“Boris going on about climate change and build back better and you’re just like this doesn’t sound like conservatism to me.

“What I stand for is essentially what I learned around the dining table when I was a kid.

Asked whether he’d had contact with members of the CSG Mr Fox replied: “I have. I have spoken to a few of them.

“And I’m interested that even by my existence, maybe this is arrogant, I noticed the Tories became markedly more Tory quite quickly when we announced.

“And I think the Common Sense Group is a good thing.”

Protests about racial justice erupted across the world this summer following the killing of George Floyd by police in Minnesota.

Statues of a number of historical figures, deemed racist by demonstrators, were either attacked or removed by authorities in the US and UK.  

Mr Fox argued education is the key to the rise of radical identity politics.

Asked what he’d priorities as Prime Minister he replied: “I think I would go straight away into education.

“De-politicise education as much as possible. I would have kids learn British and European history until GCSE level.

“Only 40 percent do and the curriculum is very generalised and non-specific.

“I would be working right in education in the beginning to stop the long march of wokeism through education and institutions and try and really level the playing field of equality of opportunity for people.”
