The actor shot to political prominence in January after appearing on an episode of BBC Question Time. He’s since become a high-profile campaigner against what he calls the “exponential march” of the “woke religion”.

Over the summer Mr Fox launched the Reclaim Party, a new political faction dedicated to fighting radical identity politics and conserving British history.

Speaking to Express.co.uk he revealed the party is looking at standing candidates in upcoming elections.

He commented: “What essentially at the moment, because we’re also going through the electoral commission, is to be a powerful movement with the fangs of standing people should we want to stand them.

“I have quite a solid plan of what I’m going to do.”

Mr Fox argued a new party is needed as the Tories are no longer representing conservatism.

He said: “The conservatives aren’t being remotely conservative.

“Boris going on about climate change and build back better and you’re just like this doesn’t sound like conservatism to me.

“What I stand for is essentially what I learned around the dining table when I was a kid.

“Which is good manners, the ability to speak freely, to be able to robustly argue your position and have that position robustly disagreed with in a balanced and enjoyable way and to leave that table as friends and for it not to be the end of your relationship.

“Those sorts of values; fairness, freedom, common sense, all of these values do need to be reclaimed because nobody has reclaimed them for us. They’re being shunted away to the side in the name of whatever Boris is.”

Earlier this year the Common Sense Group (CSG), a new faction of Conservative MPs, was formed to fight what one member termed “the woke agenda”.

About 40 MPs had signed up with the group at the time of its launch.

Asked whether he’d had contact with members of the CSG Mr Fox replied: “I have. I have spoken to a few of them.

“And I’m interested that even by my existence, maybe this is arrogant, I noticed the Tories became markedly more Tory quite quickly when we announced.

“And I think the Common Sense Group is a good thing.”

Protests about racial justice erupted across the world this summer following the killing of George Floyd by police in Minnesota.

Statues of a number of historical figures, deemed racist by demonstrators, were either attacked or removed by authorities in the US and UK.  

Mr Fox argued education is the key to the rise of radical identity politics.

Asked what he’d priorities as Prime Minister he replied: “I think I would go straight away into education.

“De-politicise education as much as possible. I would have kids learn British and European history until GCSE level.

“Only 40 percent do and the curriculum is very generalised and non-specific.

“I would be working right in education in the beginning to stop the long march of wokeism through education and institutions and try and really level the playing field of equality of opportunity for people.”
