DISCUSSION FORUM - EUROPEAN UNION

This forum is for discussion about public sentiment regarding the EU and how this can be translated into practical action, policy and media coverage; also whether anti-EU feeling is caused mainly by the functioning of the EU bureaucracy and lack of democratic accountability rather than U.K. zenophobia or obsessive attachment to sovereignty, independence etc.; whether increasing unity with Europe could be promoted by other means, etc., etc.

These forums are for discussion of the various issues that fall into the political arena, and to consider how the Democratic Party can develop effective policy in line with "The Will of the People, NOT of the Party".

The forums operate through email, with postings being read by the administrator who then forwards them to the list of subscribers. This is to exclude those which are gratuitously anti-social, offensive or defamatory. Postings that pass the initial vetting process are nevertheless the responsibility of the author. Please note that emails are subject to the libel laws.

Where officers of the Democratic Party contribute to these discussion forums this would normally be on a personal basis because it would not be practicable for postings to be considered by the Party Council as a whole. Where party policy is being quoted, this will be made clear at the time.

Please also note that it would be hoped that discussions could be largely constructive and positive, rather than destructive and negative. This is an opportunity to contribute effectively towards improving the democratic process. Negative comments are not an effective contribution and serve only to discourage.
