First published in Keighley by

A KEIGHLEY supermarket trolley worker is planning to launch his own political party and contest the next general election.

Leo Robinson is scrapping his Tory membership and instead setting up the Yorkshire Tea Party.

And he has drawn-up a 10-point charter, which ranges from axing the HS2 high-speed rail link to legalising cannabis for medicinal use and downgrading marijuana to a Class C drug.

But before 36-year-old Mr Robinson can go to the polls and battle for the votes of the Keighley and Ilkley electorate, he needs to raise a £500 deposit.

"I have been a member of the Conservatives since 2011 and was in favour of the coalition but it has fallen apart," says Mr Robinson, who lives in Church Street and works at the nearby Morrisons store.

"I'm concerned with the current political scene. I am becoming aware of a lot of hidden agendas in government that I want to expose.

"My aim is to provide voters with an alternative.

"I need a treasurer and to set-up a bank account, but I'm serious about this.

"I thought the choice of name for the party would stick in people's minds. But also it produces the imagery of drinking tea and waking up, in the sense that supporting the Yorkshire Tea Party and social activism to secure our goals is a process of waking up to what is really going on around us behind superficial political appearances."

Mr Robinson admits there has been a mixed initial reaction to his initiative.

"Some people have been very positive and signed-up to the charter and I have received constructive criticism from others," he said.

"I can learn from what people are saying, it's all useful."

He added that the public can find out more by visiting his Yorkshire Tea Party facebook page.

The party's charter in full is: put a stop to benefits sanctions on 'petty things'; reverse privatisation of nursing homes, prisons and other services where corporate partners have a monopoly on provision; a U-turn on 2013-2014 cuts to council budgets that saw Bradford Council scrambling to find £120 million; stop HS2 from London to Birmingham and Leeds, which ultimately will increase the wealth gap between rich and poor and see Yorkshire's talented workers commute to the south east; stop the ring-fencing of NHS budgets and scrap foreign aid to rich trading partners; opt out of EU corporate tax rules that see multi-national corporations pay almost no tax on their trading within the UK; legalise cannabis for medicinal use and downgrade marijuana to grade C drug and freeze beer and cigarettes duty; proportional representation at general elections and reforms to party funding laws; no to GMO food imports and the EU-North American trade deal, and investment in wave power first with no fracking in the Yorkshire Dales and only elsewhere as a last resort.

A recent member of the Cavetown Gang , cajoled when a Cavetowner.
Ridiculed and ignored when he came up with this idea.
If in any way you disagree or differ from the Vindictive and Personal Campaign run by the "Family " ,failed Councilor , or wannabe Chairman of his own Parish Council or disagree with the snivelling conniving existing Counciilor who assists the Group , YOU ARE OUT.
They say they represent the people of Keighley ,yet Facebook Groups which they have no control off ,remove them.

I'm aware that Leo has posted on the KN pages previously but having witnessed his interactions on FB he might be wise to restrict his, sometimes, ill-thought out comments.

Another Fletcher/Latham might be in the making ;-)

Little green man, OWC , any other hidden KTC cllr alias cowards don't you want to discuss my policies. Has anyone noticed that they are based on British Liberal values? As for Cavetown it is in fact the vengeance of KTC against Cavetown that is the real story here. Every week in this paper there is an article and picture to discredit hardworking Cavetown group who have done so much for this town holding an out of control town council to account. Cavetown members have been smeared, ridiculed, and even called black shirts in the Town Hall chamber itself during full public meeting. I have the recording myself. I will indeed stand for election to the town council and hopefully some of the eight cllrs who walked out of a meeting in June will work with me to straighten out this crooked institution. You will observe respect for parishioners and democratic due process from me at all times.

See my Facebook page and read my Charter (scroll down to see) Yorkshire Tea Party in Keighley and Ilkley it has over 120 likes so far (weds). Also planning social action programs including environmental, litter, neighbourhood that will be funded by video clubs through a separate bank account. The social programs there as a service to everyone not a means to push YTP agenda. Everyone from anarchist to libertarian and Inbetween will be welcome to join in and enjoy the video clubs pay to view on projector screen at a venue TBC. From the Yorkshire Tea Party point of view, anybody involved in improving their neighbourhood or their world for others is a 'Tyke-Striver' and is part of the resistance to elite agendas of Parlisment London or Washington or Brussels. So Tyke-Strivers unite!!

First of all become a member of a YTP associated social program such as a video club and contribute to grass roots social change in your local neighbourhood. You tell me what needs to change and funds from the video clubs will be reserved and awarded accordingly. These activists do not need to be a member of the Yorkshire Tea Party no they can be of any party or none. But by getting involved you will become a Tyke Striver and you will be the change you want to see. And we can all sing together 'we are the Tyke Strivers! Do one Dish face, do one Beaker!'

Tufty Dales I am pleased that you intend to stand for election to the town council ,forget your manifesto, as a none political council you will not need them .Following the auditors report, simply stand as a return the council to the electorate of Keighley and if possible attempt to have a few good people of similes honest open views as yourself stand with you . The reason you need these additional good people is that you will not be able to rid this council of the cunning and devious councilors that threaten and bully their fellow councilors and members of staff.

O W C you may think that making fun of a person by belittling him in print is what a councilor should do to the electorate of our town ,let us see what your comments are following the auditors report . As I remember it was the x mayor Walker that used the phrase guilty by association in reference to my request for an apology for being escorted out of the chamber by 9 police officers despite not filming ,
Oh dear ,delusional , you once again infer that I am a Councilor , that's what made you a good Cavetowner .
Paying complements that makes a change ,try being honest for once you never know you may get to like it .On second thoughts no it just is not in your make up.

I'm confused - what videos are shown?

If these are commercial videos (i.e. cinema movies) then a licence is needed.

Or are these "home movies"?

5%?? You'll be lucky if its 0.5% but I'm fairly confident you'll be spared the embarrassment because it's unlikely you'll even get to the start line.

What is wrong with working in a supermarket? Do you class this as a lowly job for the uneducated? If there were no supermarket workers we would all be lost.

I would say that there are probably not that many well educated trolley pushers wandering around our supermarket car parks so I judge my remark to be factual rather than derisory but you are free of course to interpret it as you wish. The point I was making was the unsuitability of Mr Robinson to represent anyone when he makes such a poor show of representing himself.

I am, and I have.

Why is he making a poor show of representing himself? He seems to be quite compos mentis. I didn't realise that all of our parish council and district council representatives had to have a particular standard of education. Is that a degree, or are lowly GCE's and A levels acceptable?

I'll remember never to apply for either. As I have just made an application for a supermarket job, I am obviously not considered to be educated to the necessary standard.

Thank you.

Sounds very much like every other political party to me, just some are established in deception and garner their funds from more acceptable (but still dubious) means.

He is being slated for trying, which is a damned site more than most do. He may get nowhere at all, but at least he is trying to make a difference. Lets face it, UKIP got votes without having any sort of manifesto, so that's not a detriment.

Though Mr Robinson is keen to accuse supermarkets (20th August on his FB page) of exploiting the public and yet works for them and thus part of the "system".

I do think that to work for somebody you accuse of exploitation is a little hypocritical and also potentially another problem on the horizon for My Robinson on top of his requirement to change the party name within weeks of launching.

Little Green Man have you even taken one look at the policies I am proposing? One for example Proportional Representation has been dropped by 'Liberal' 'Democrats' in shame. My party are the real Liberals and we will have tremendous support and enough funding to challenge the General Election. You do not have the foggyest idea what I mean by Government secret agendas and this is another thing which makes me completely different from the other parties. I refuse to believe everyone else shares your apathy and dull views LGM , Leo Robinson

Little Green Man assumes far too much. And reads too little. He is a bigoted individual. He assumes that since I work as a trolley pusher that I must be not well educated. He is wrong I am highly educated and exceptionally intelligent. I turned down the opportunity to work as a Museum Crafts Conservationist because at the end of the day I did not want to become an angst ridden middle class worker. I wanted to become working class and that is how I regard myself now happily.

little green man assumes I do not have a Manifesto. In fact I wrote out the Party's manifesto five weeks ago in full hand written to 12 pages A4!

Little green man assumes I don't have any clear policies. In fact I showed you very clearly exactly what I stand for in the Ten point Charter published in the article.

Little green man assumes I don't have any supporters. In fact I have a Facebook page for Northern Tea Party with nearly 200 likes and vigorous engagement with the posts. And printed ten point Charters shown to customers at Cafe Choux Choux were singled upto straight off the bat.

Little green man assumes I have no treasurer. In fact three people have so far volunteered to do this job. One had to resign since she was moving to Bradford.

Again he thinks I am not qualified to stand in elections since I must be of such low education and intelligence working for a supermarket.

LITTLE GREEN MAN you are a BIGOTED IGNORANT individual and you will be proved wrong.

Oh and thank you Katiery for standing up for the working man;-)

You are welcome Leo. Some of our better politicians came from a working class background. The same background I am from. I really dislike supercilious snobs.

Methinks you've fallen into the trap of launching an attack on a member of the public and have now gone the way of others on these pages!

Don't forget that there are members of the "angst ridden middle class" who will find your willingness to label somebody a bigot as more than a little inappropriate.

Sorry Leo - intelligence doesn't equal common-sense and you've shown a side that reminds me of Paul Latham and others.

Did I say you weren't qualified? Did I say you were of low intelligence? If you answered 'yes' to either of these questions then I probably should have! Oh and since you are of such exceptional intelligence you might want to grab your dictionary (not the one with pictures in) and review the meaning of the word 'bigot' I believe you used it in the wrong context in several places.
