A Force For Good (AFFG) is a Scottish pro-Unionist campaign and self-described “think tank” headed by Alistair McConnachie.

McConnachie is a former UKIP organiser who was forced out of the party in 2001 for engaging in Holocaust denial. He was paid by the Orange Order for “social media services” ahead of the 2014 independence referendum, and also addressed the tiny but extreme TradSoc conference in 2019.

Under the AFFG banner, McConnachie produces a regular but little-viewed stream of video content, with guests including David Clews of Unity News Network, David Kurten of the Heritage Party and Niall Fraser of the Scottish Family Party. McConachie and AFFG have also attracted press for protesting against pro-independence marches and supporting anti-trans demonstrations.

He is also founder of Independent Green Voice, a tiny political party that has fielded former BNP activists Max Dunbar and John Robertson as candidates. In 2021, the group was accused by the Scottish Greens of having cost them seats, due to the similar name and logo possibly confusing voters.
