Veritas Party HistoryThe following is a brief potted history of Veritas from launch in February 2005. We trust you will all enjoy reading this history of Veritas.
Veritas was launched on Wednesday the 2nd February 2005 at the Institute of Civil Engineers in Westminster close to the Houses of Parliament, the seat of power for all governments in this country for centuries.
The party was launched amid a wave of publicity and media interest primarily due to its high profile founder and first leader Robert Kilroy-Silk MEP.
A number of ordinary members of the public, the vast majority of whom had no previous political experience or history in political involvement, assisted Robert in launching Veritas and organising the actual launch.
Prior to the party launch Damian Hockney, a London Assembly member, also joined Veritas as Deputy Leader. The launch went very well and it was covered by virtually all the TV and radio stations in the UK together with the vast majority of the political editors from the main tabloids.
From Launch to the General Election
After our launch the party had a very busy period of continuing to organise and recruit members and candidates to run in any elections that occurred. It was a very busy time with much to be done and a very steep learning curve to overcome. However, the upshot was that in the General election held on 5th May 2005 (three months after Veritas was launched) we managed to field over 60 candidates.
June - September 2005
Naturally after such a whirlwind start the Party and its members needed a period of rest and reflection. There were many valuable lessons learnt during the General Election campaign and absorbing those takes time.
October 2005 - October 2006
Veritas has been working hard to establish itself on the UK political scene. In this short period great strides have been made and are continuing.
Veritas is here to stay. Forming and consolidating a political Party in the UK is a very difficult task, however Veritas and its members are happy to rise to the challenge.
