Actor Laurence Fox has launched a new political party, The Reclaim Party, which has been dubbed by a Westminster source, the “UKIP for culture.”
The party was created in 2020 with the aim to “reclaim” British values, from British politicians who Laurence says have “lost touch with the people.”
Read on to find out more about the Reclaim Party, and Laurence Fox.

What is the Reclaim Party?
The Reclaim Party was dubbed “UKIP for culture” by a Westminster source in The Telegraph.
Laurence appeared on Question Time in January, where he called an audience member “racist” for calling him “a white, privileged male.”
The Reclaim Party website states: “The people of the United Kingdom are tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have in history stood together against. We are all privileged to be the custodians of our shared heritage.”
“We can reclaim a respectful nation where all are included and none are ashamed to have somewhere to call home. I have been so encouraged by the support I have received by those wishing to add their voices to this reclamation of our values.”
