LPUK SGM Postponed

The planned LPUK Special General Meeting due to take place this weekend has indeed been postponed. The meeting is essential to begin the process of renewal for the Party, but I have been informed that the meeting has been postponed due to technical issues with the invitation email.

That British governments are elected by the majority of the governed, and are thus authorised by those majorities to make decisions or rule on their behalf. That therefore British governments are legitimate.
