The Third Way was a British political party and now a political think tank which researches and debates themes relevant to nationalists. It was founded as a political party on 17 March 1990 but after The Third Way was a British political party and now a political think tank which researches and debates themes relevant to nationalists. It was founded as a political party on 17 March 1990 but it decided to revert to being a think tank and abandoned party-politics.
Third Way describes itself as representing:
- “a movement dedicated to creating a society based on Justice, Community and Individual freedom against one that is based on Greed, Globalisation and Tyranny.
- Third Way stands against all forms of social injustice, racism and religious bigotry. Third Way is for everyone.
- We act as a 'Think-Tank' for positive ideas and apart from this website also publishes a magazine 'Third Way' and occasional books and pamphlets.
- We advocate Direct Democracy along Swiss lines using referenda and citizens' initiatives. We support small business and co-operative ownership.”
This Third Way should not be confused with the Third Way ideology promoted by Tony Blair, Bill Clinton and Gerhard Schröder, which it condemns as merely a revised form of social democracy. It is in no way related to the Christian Third Way magazine.
Third Way supported the English Lobby, a pressure group and electoral coalition founded in 2004 that campaigns for the recognition of St George's Day and the creation of an English Parliament.
Third Way supporters assisted in the foundation of Solidarity – The Union for British Workers.
The Third Way has operated, or is closely associated with, various publications and websites. They include:
- Ulster Nation magazine and website
- Counter-Culture magazine and website
- Liverpool Newsletter, a distributist publication formerly edited by Anthony Cooney and now published by Third Way.
