The Premier Independent political party in Wyre Forest

The Wyre Forest area of north Worcestershire is the home of independent political thought - having been represented in Parliament for two terms (ten years) by the Independent M.P. Dr. Richard Taylor M.B.E.

Representing Wyre Forest people

The party works at Wyre Forest District and local Town and Parish levels with Councillors on the Bewdley, Kidderminster and Stourport-on-Severn town councils.

Not just a ‘Single Issue’ party

Independent Kidderminster Hospital and Health Concern is NOT just a ‘single issue’ party but a grouping of independent representatives of the people; taking on-board all manner of local problems (and solving them) and local aspirations (and aiding in their delivery). It grew out of the projected closure of Kidderminster Hospital (to which so many had contributed with fund-raising). This prompted mass protest and street parades and, ultimately, the rejection of the sitting Labour MP - a junior Minister. The party remains fundamentally concerned with the provision of health facilities and the delivery of all that results in ‘good health’ it is associated with concern for all aspects of a healthy community - education for all ages, support for the disabled and the elderly, transport, arts and entertainment, nature and the environment.

Closer to home, as if North Shropshire wasn’t close, we have the ward of Franche and North Habberley in the Wyre Forest District Council.. and your Candidates on Tuesday 30 November 2021 are ..
CLIMATE DISASTER Overnight, the other week, the wind generation of electricity collapsed by 90% - because there was .. NO WIND. High demand meant the purchase of current from other producers and, market forces being what they are, the PRICE ROSE .. by some 100 TIMES the normal level .. and “we” ended paying (because its always “us” who pays in the end) £4,000 per MWh (mega-watt-hour). How appropriate / appalling / ironic (take your pick) that we nearly ran out of ‘Green juice’ while the “great and the good” who have arrived in Scotland in their private jets (President Biden, in his 747 ‘Spirit of America’, was accompanied by 4 other jets) are here to tell us how to “Save the Planet”. Still, perhaps we should “Insulate” ourselves from the cold by wearing more woolly jumpers. ?
