It was Niall Warry’s initiative in 2012, in close cooperation with Richard North, that organised the inaugural meeting in Harrogate which lead to the setting up of, what became known as,The Harrogate Agenda(THA). Niall’s active involvement in politics started in 1997 as a candidate for the Referendum Party, he then joined UKIP and stood in two General, one Euro and one Local election for and was Chairman of Wales and later Cheltenham. In the 2010 General Election realising that all political parties were part of the problem and weren’t offering any real or lasting solutions he stood as an Independent candidate in his constituency. After this experience it finally dawned on him that nothing would change until the system changed hence his involvement in THA and it’s six demands.
