party called "Mainstream" is being founded as a new political party
in Great Britain; to promote a society based on total respect for all
human life, and based on the importance of the family unit as the centre

The party's principles are those of Abraham Lincoln; that
"All men and women are created equal". We see Mankind as President Lincoln
did - one "Human Race" where people must be judged solely on the way
they behave; never by their skin colour or physical appearance. We want
the economy to become a "meritocracy" where people advance solely through
their merit - by hard work and study; not by having the right social

to any man-made institution like the EU 'parliament', or the UN. And
as the old saying goes "a Cat may look at a King" - Equality
means ordinary people do not bow down and look up to 'Royals' whose

the EEC's and the USA's farming industries; or OPEC and other similar
We believe in "Human Rights" , but that Rights bring also
Responsibilities. We each of us have the responsibility to behave with
respect, towards all other citizens. We are entitled to the full set
of Human Rights, only as long as we do not infringe the human rights
of others. Those who offend against other citizens' rights, must pay
the penalty of losing some of their own human rights.
We believe in a world where even the tiniest and the humblest
Humans - the babies of the world's poorest parents (and inclusive of
babies who are still waiting to be born) are to be valued just as highly
as Princes and Presidents.
