The Committee for a Free Britain was the short-lived political pressure-group established by David Hart (born 1944). Many of its activities are obscure. Hart was active in the miners' strike supporting strike-breakers, and the Committee for a Free Britain boasted that it paid the legal costs of groups taking on left-wing councils, and that it assisted in the visit to Britain of Adolfo Calero, the Nicaraguan Contra leader. ...more on Wikipedia about "Committee for a Free Britain"
The Conservative Democratic Alliance is a strongly right-wing United Kingdom pressure group which considers the Conservative Party to have swung overtly to the left in recent years in its attempts to modernise itself. It was formed by disaffected members of the Conservative Monday Club, another pressure group, over the way in which the Club should have responded to the Conservative Party's very public severing of 'links' with the Club in 2001, due to the Club's alleged racism. The conservative Daily Telegraph newspaper has described the CDA as "a hardline offshoot of the Monday Club" (Daily Telegraph, 24 August 2004). ...more on Wikipedia about "Conservative Democratic Alliance"
