|Formation||16 January 2005|
It was unrelated to the wider British and American usage of the term New Right (the ideologies of neoconservatism and neoliberalism) and is directly inspired by the French Nouvelle Droite and the broader European New Right.
It defined itself as follows: "We are opposed to liberalism, democracy and egalitarianism and fight to restore the eternal values and principles that have become submerged beneath the corrosive tsunami of the modern world."  However other UK groups had long campaigned on these objectives, such as the Conservative Monday Club, the Western Goals Institute, the Conservative Democratic Alliance and the Traditional Britain Group.
It was launched on 16 January 2005 at a meeting in central London. This followed an initial meeting the previous month, in which it was described as a "dynamic and strictly metapolitical group [that] seeks to unite the disparate strands of the British Right and get everybody pulling in the same direction".
New Right published a journal, New Imperium.
