Rights and Freedoms

Conservatives for Liberty’s faith in individuals does not just apply to markets, but to social issues too. We believe that adults should be free to do as they please as long as they do not harm others. For this reason we support same sex marriage, the decriminalisation of cannabis, and the removal of choice-crushing prohibition measures on sugar, alcohol and tobacco.

Conservatives for Liberty is worried that civil liberties are being eroded in the name of fighting terrorism, without pause to consider the impact on innocent, law-abiding citizens. We oppose mass surveillance, clamp downs on free speech, and moves to remove judicial protections and oversight. We believe that counter-terrorism and crime fighting tools should only apply to suspects, and that the definition of who is a suspect should be carefully controlled.

Conservatives for Liberty are proudly patriotic. We support the union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland without pause or caveat. We believe the first duty of the government is defence of the nation, and so we treasure our armed forces and believe they should be properly funded.
