For the Majority,

not the Minority

'Don't knows' and 'No-shows'

Why can't there be a party that gets 60% of the electorate's vote? We all have different views but there are plenty of views shared in common by at least 60% of people.

In opinion polls you include the 'dont knows' - or the poll is meaningless. So in analysing actual election results, you must include the 'no-shows' - those who stay at home instead of voting. They're just as important as the ones who turn out to vote. So percentages must be based on the whole electorate, not just those who vote. Non-voters are NOT lazy young people who can't be bothered to get off the sofa - they're people who would LIKE to vote - if only there was a party / candidate they could support! They in effect DID vote - for 'none of the above'.

In last year's snap election, called by Theresa May to 'improve' her position, but which turned out a disaster for her, the Tories were marginally the most popular party but with just 29% of the electorate's votes. And Labour who came second, got 27% of the electorate. No party gets even half the electorate's support - nowhere near! This continues the trend for the last 40 years . Is it any surprise when you look at how out of touch ALL of Parliament's MPs are, with ordinary people?

a new party for the centre

We need a populist party . A popular party, a people's party, to represent the majority who don't identify with the establishment parties of 'right' and 'left'. With new populist policies from the centre, A party for the centre ground, for the political MAINSTREAM.


                  "SMASH THE RIGHT" 




our take on recent news stories...



The latest attempts by Labour 'Insiders' at forming a new 'centrist' party will fail, just like the SDP did back in the 80s. That's because all the politicians involved, are exactly the same establishment figures as we already have in Westminster - instead of what we need , which is a whole new style of politician from OUTSIDE the establishment. We need to drain the Westminster swamp - not move clumps of it around.

Labour are supposed to be an opposition to Theresa May's shambolic 'government' - instead they're fighting among themselves - Brexiters against Remainers; female MPs against male MPs. You couldn't make it up.


MAINSTREAM - a brief history

MAINSTREAM is a small, new political party - founded in 2005 and based in the West Midlands. The idea of MAINSTREAM is to try and re-create, what we always had up to about 40 years ago - a party capable of getting majority support - i.e., the support of more than 50% of voters, in an election.

Our Parliamentary system of first-past-the-post is not going to change any time soon: it was confirmed by people's mandate in the 2011 referendum. we're stuck with it. Right now it's not working well - but that's not because of the system : It's because of the useless collection of politicians, and political parties, which have succeeded in taking over political life. They're all totally out of touch with ordinary people, representing only powerful and rich minorities and pressure groups. Their ideas about what's right and wrong, what's sensible and what's sick - don't come from the grass roots or from working people - they come from snooty intellectual think-tanks based in North London.

We want to challenge the current 3-party political establishment, who are an assortment of ex-public-school millionaires, political party or trade union 'researchers' (hacks), and lawyers. Most of them have never had a real job in their life.

For the 40% who don't vote. While the Chattering Classes  scratch their heads to think of ways to get the non-voters "included" - they're blind to the truth: These 40% don't vote because they don't like ANY of the existing choices on offer!
