Compassion has the power to change politics for good.
From inequality to homelessness, online abuse to refugees dying at sea - imagine how these issues would be tackled if compassion was the main motivation of decision-makers.
Yet compassion has been edged out of the political debate, replaced by a politics of fear, anger, and division, and a narrative which emphasises individual success over collective well-being and happiness.
When we look at ourselves and our lives, however, it seems pretty obvious that we are so much more than that. We love, care, volunteer, help and support.
Our proudest political achievements as a nation - the introduction of the NHS, the Kindertransport which rescued 10,000 Jewish children from the Nazis, the legalisation of homosexuality - were all built on compassionate principles.
What if instead of rewarding self advancement and encouraging greed we celebrated and cultivated those types of policy and the values that they represent?
Through a new kind of politics and with a new set of values at the heart of decision-making we can create a nation that cares for one another, improves everyone’s lives, and protects our natural world.
We are working to introduce a "compassion threshold" into UK policy making.
We believe all election campaigns should be contested with respect, honesty, and decency.
Debates in parliament should be conducted in a spirit of respect, inclusion, and cooperation.
