A Force For Good: Our 4 Pro-UK Principles

September 10, 2019


My name is Alistair McConnachie, Director
at a Force for Good, a pro-UK organisation coming to you from the Great British City
of Glasgow. In this video we’re going to tell you our
4 fundamental principles upon which we stand, and which also describe for us the Territory,
the Nature, the Purpose and the Form of Government of our United Kingdom. These 4 points represent the Position from
which we judge the Philosophy, the Policy, the Projects and the Activity which we promote: Our first principle: The United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Northern Ireland shall be maintained. Great Britain and Northern Ireland is the
Territory. Our second principle: The United Kingdom is,
and shall remain, primarily a Unitary State and One Nation. That is to say, we’re not merely a “union
of nations”. We are primarily and predominantly a Nation
of Unions. We are not merely a “family of nations”. We
are primarily and predominantly a Nation of Families. And that’s important because if we conceive
of the United Kingdom only as a “union of nations” then we are thinking of the UK in
a very unstable way. We are opening the door to forms of destabilising
devolution which do not properly take into account our Unitary Nature. Which do not properly take into account our
Oneness. And these forms of destabilising devolution
which do not properly comprehend the Nature of the United Kingdom will grease the slippery
slope towards forms of federalism, and slow independence, and ultimately separation. Our third principle: Ever Closer Union between
all the people and parts of the United Kingdom shall be pursued. That is the Purpose of the United Kingdom. And that includes elements; social, cultural,
environmental, economic, educational, legal, territorial, and all forms political. You know, the EU has as its fundamental organising
principle the aim of ever closer union between all its member states. Well, if the EU can be doing this, the United
Kingdom should certainly be doing so! And our fourth principle: The House of Windsor
shall continue to provide the Head of State of our United Kingdom. That is our Form of Government. We are a Constitutional Monarchy where the
Queen is the Head of State, and where the ultimate authority to make and pass legislation
rests with the British Parliament, and the People who elect it. And we recognise the importance of that Form
of Government in conferring upon our Islands our Unique Identity. So that’s where we are coming from. And in future videos we’re going to be expanding
upon that Philosophy, and we’re going to be describing Policies and Strategies necessary
to strengthen our United Kingdom. Because, as we say, the passage of time should
be bringing us all closer together. It should not be driving us further apart! So please subscribe to our YouTube channel
