The SDP’s National New Deal is a programme for growth and renewal. We want a strong economy and a fair society. We want every part of Britain to grow and prosper which requires a strong and capable state and a vigorous economy.
Our policies flow logically from the aims and values set out in the New Declaration published in 2018. Contrary to the claims of modern-day liberals and libertarians people do not exist in isolation. We are all part of multi-layered communities. Consequently, we believe in strengthening family, community and nation – the places where we work together for the common good. We exercise rights but we also have responsibilities and our programme reflects this across a broad range of policies.
We are proud to call ourselves social democrats. Greater individual responsibility, trust and social solidarity will, we believe, make Britain a happier and more productive nation.
