The party defines itself by the five core policies. So that members and non-members clearly understand what the party stands for, these cannot be changed. At present they are principles the details of which will be decided according to the party constitution
All other policies will be decided according to the constitution

British Republican History
There are Five Core Values or Five Goals that we identify as together defining the society that we wish to live in:
We need Civic Virtue because we want a Good Society.
An efficient state that somehow managed to deliver material wellbeing without any sense of ethical human values would not satisfy us.
And in any case it would not work.
We need Personal Freedom because we want society to be ruled by Truth.
And, without freedom, truth goes by the wayside.
We need Personal Freedom because we want to be able to have independent economic lives, and control to an extent our own destinies and that of our families.
We want to be able to live our lives in a well-regulated, but not over-regulated, society.
We need Popular Aspiration for through it we can express with others how we wish society to be.
We all have Vision and ambitions, however modest, that we want to achieve and share with others.
Society must give vent for such feelings and be able to accommodate them.
We need a degree of Private Wealth for without it we have no Stake in the society.
We need a degree of Private Wealth for our own self respect and to allow us to have the position, status and respect we deserve.
We have a right to expect that a rich society such as ours has a responsibility to make sure every citizen achieves a degree of wealth for themselves and their families.
We will not tolerate deprivation
We need World Peace for we want our own nation to live in peace unthreatened by the terrors of war.
We want all Humanity to share this privilege.
We want to know and appreciate foreign lands.
Only with peace will we maintain the world for future generations.
These are the Five Goals we need, have and want.
The new Democratic Republican Constitution will be designed above all to deliver these goals which are our Core Values.
