Join others in Bristol West to demand real change

We can only Win as One with your support. We need local people who know the area better than anyone to join together and demand a change to politics as usual. There’s too much at stake, from a climate emergency to basic fairness, to not Win as One.

Win as One seat category

Progressives in power

This seat is held by an MP from a progressive party with a majority of over 10%. We're focusing on battlegrounds, but your activism is still crucial to the national picture, especially for holding MPs to account after they're elected. Get involved today.

About the campaign to Win as One in Bristol West

There are already activists working across Bristol and the surrounding area to change our politics. We know that at the next election, we lose apart again or we Win As One to change our political system for good. 

Our voting system is the glue that holds our rotten, out-of-date politics together – we must change it. That’s why the Bristol and West group have been focused on campaigning for electoral reform and collaboration across party lines.

First Past the Post centralises power and locks in the influences of the rich and powerful. It shuts out the voices of the people – bending only to a tiny number of swing voters in just a few swing seats. It encourages short-term, tribal thinking that is far away from the big, bold, change our country needs.

Compass Bristol & West will be contacting the incumbent MP and prospective candidates in this constituency to seek an open commitment to introducing PR at Westminster before offering any support for their election campaign.

Only by changing our political system can we really change the country – whether to end poverty, build a new economy, fight for climate justice and human rights, or build greater internationalism or stronger working rights.

At the next election we need to come together, yes to change the government, but most importantly to change the system; with Proportional Representation as the first essential step of giving power back to the people.

Unless we work together we will lose again and things will get even worse – we can’t let that happen.

There is a progressive majority in our country but because we are divided we keep losing – we must stop this happening again.

Before, during and after the next election we need to:

  • Build trusted cross-party relations in target seats to reduce progressive competition, so we don’t divide the vote
  • Encourage funding to be channelled to support candidates who back real political reform, in the shape of PR
  • Create a movement of campaigners and activists on the ground in these key seats
  • Maximise the number of votes going to progressive candidates who can win and who want to change the system.

This is what #WinAsOne is about. A national movement of hundreds of thousands of Change Makers – just like you – committed and willing to use their votes, activism, time, money and energy to ensure the best placed progressive candidates who back real change win. Join the Bristol and West group today.
