More United formed after the result of the 2016 UK referendum on EU membership. It was founded by a cross-party group including Paddy Ashdown, Jonathan Porritt and Caroline Criado-Perez amongst others, including both MPs and non-MPs.
The movement describes itself as a "tech-driven political startup" with principles similar to the Liberal Democrats, but a cross-party movement rather than a political party. The name "More United" is a reference to the House of Commons maiden speech of Jo Cox, the Labour member of parliament who was killed in June 2016.
The movement says it will support any candidate from any party which backs its principles:
- A fair, modern, efficient market based economy that closes the gap between rich and poor and supports strong public services.
- A modern democracy that empowers citizens, rather than politicians.
- A green economy that protects the environment and works to reverse climate change.
- An open and tolerant society where diversity is celebrated in all its forms.
- A United Kingdom that welcomes immigration, international co-operation and a close relationship with the EU.
