Between 2010 and 2018 £3.6 billion was cut from public spending in the North; £4.7 billion was added to public spending in the South during the same period.
The Northern Independence Party was established in 2020 in response to the worsening injustice of this North/South divide. We believe that the North can only overcome the challenges of our times as an independent nation, free from the regressive and inequitable politics of Westminster.
There can be no doubt that the challenges we face are substantial and diverse, including high rates of poverty, lack of secure housing, and soaring energy prices. The policies set out here aim to address these challenges at every scale, from parish council to Westminster.
Let us show you what would be possible in an independent North.
