You might well have thought they were already running it but in todays elections candidates from the ultra right wing YOUNG BRITONS FOUNDATION are hoping to mount a coup.Headed by Mark Clarke of the TRADE UNION REFORM CAMPAIGN they have a chance of holding the balance of power. Here’s what’s been said about them:
‘Alex Deane – former Chief of Staff to David Cameron, member of the management board of the Young Britons’ Foundation – was elected as a Common Councilman of the City of London in May 2011.
The Young Britons’ Foundation has been described as a “Tory madrassa” and David Cameron has denied all knowledge of it, despite having contributed to a YBF guide for young Conservatives. The YBF has expressed views that are anti-NHS and pro-torture – unsurprising considering its links to extreme-rightwing groups in the US.’
So this group may well control the City…..becoming a a right wing enclave with huge wealth and power. It will need more than OCCUPY this time comrades.
