I planned to stand in the European Election in the West Midlands in May 2014 but withdrew because of inadequate financial support. The deposit was £5000. I stood in the Newark by-election of 2014 to draw attention to the need to get the country’s money created by public authority – ie the Bank of England.

I didn’t stand in the 2015 General Election but campaigned a little in the EU referendum of 2016 for remaining in the EU without being part of the main campaign. If you are kindly considering contributing then you’d need to send a cheque in the post made out to “The Common Good party” and send it to me Rev Dr Richard Rodgers at 63 Meadow Brook Road Birmingham B31 1ND. We can’t yet accept donations electronically. If your donation is (kindly) over £500, then I need to know your full name and address and that you are on an electoral roll somewhere in the UK and preferably the local authority area that that roll applies to, since I have to verify your enrollment.

I am on 0121 476 0789 if you want to discuss it.

Thank you. Dick Rodgers
