For Traditional Conservatism and Unionism
The London Swinton Circle was founded in 1961. Its original membership was composed solely of those who had attended Conservative Party training schools at Swinton Castle in Yorkshire, and who wished to maintain contact with each other through regular meetings in London. Since that time, however, the London Swinton Circle has expanded its membership, and now welcomes members from all backgrounds who support traditional Conservative and Unionist principles.
The Circle holds regular meetings which are addressed by speakers on issues of interest to the Circle. Over the years the Circle has been addressed by members of
the Conservative Party, the United Kingdom Independence Party and from the Ulster Unionist parties. The Circle has also been addressed by a number of authors, journalists, campaigners and other political commentators.
In an address entitled "Towards a Christian Britain?" Councillor David Silvester emphasised to the Circle on 17 April that the Bible and strict adherence to the Ten Commandments1 was at the heart of Britain's rise to national greatness. Our considerable fall was as a result of not only our departure from God2 but our waging a war against His Law, particularly the enactment of 'same sex marriage'. Councillor Silvester also highlighted the disastrous consequences of so much foreign ownership of flag ship British companies, department stores and even football teams. Our weakening of national defence means that we could well fall prey to foreign powers and we would not be able to react to a sudden crises affecting our national interests.
1Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day: And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
Deuteronomy 11:26 - 28
2But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: Cursed shalt thou be in the city and cursed shalt thou be in the field. Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store. ... The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me. ... Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand. ... The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. ... Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee
Deuteronomy 28:15 - 44
