Make A Donation Towards Our Liberty Bomb!
.


The Magna Carta – Latin for ‘Great Charter’ – was signed on 15th June 1215 at Runnymede (near Windsor Castle) in Surrey between the barons of England and King John.

The Magna Carta was a series of written promises between the king and his subjects that he, the king, would govern England and deal with its people according to the customs of feudal law. It was an attempt by the barons to stop a king abusing his power with the people of England suffering.

In layman’s terms it was the first official recognition that some of the King’s subjects had individual rights. Sadly, it looks like the Tories want to rip up this progressive document and restrict free speech and our civil and religious liberties!

Will you help the NLP fight Cameron’s plans? If so, make a donation towards our Liberty Bomb!
.
REGULAR READERS will be aware that every year the National Liberal Party – NLP –celebrates Magna Carta Day. Over the years we’ve produced blogs (1), Youtube videos (2) and countless articles (3 – 24).

In 2011 we ran a Liberty Literary Week:

“We shall celebrate ‘Liberty Day’ on the 15th June, the anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta which acts as a symbolic talisman for all liberty lovers.

As part of that celebration of our liberties and the renewal of our pledge to protect hard fought for freedoms we shall be hosting a number of articles on some of those issues presently facing us in Britain (and perhaps elsewhere). Running throughout the week this series of articles is designed to provoke your interest and, hopefully, encourage you to fight with us to mainatain our liberties.”

Indeed, it’s easy to see that the NLPs call for both National and Political Self-Determination – as expressed in our 2015 General Election Manifesto (25) – has its roots in the Magna Carta itself.

This year marks the 800th Anniversary of the signing of the Mgna Carta – and it also marks one of the most serious attacks on our freedom and liberty yet. Ironically, this attack doesn’t come from ‘extremists’ or ‘terrorists’ but from the Tory government itself!

As recent article – Help The NLP Campaign For Civil & Religious Liberties For All! of May 15 – noted:

“PRIME MINISTER David Cameron has wanted to scrap the Human Rights Act for a long time. He’s also wanted to exempt the UK Government from implementing unfavourable European Court of Human Rights rulings.

He – together with Home Secretary Theresa May – now wants to introduce a ‘counter-terrorism’ bill which has the potential to curb the civil and religious liberties of anyone and everyone.

Our guess is that the Tories will claim that their bill is aimed at ‘Islamic extremists’ but will then be used to silence others.

Initially they’ll target ‘unpopular’ targets like Anjem Choudary, the radical Islamic preacher. Then, for both PR and PC reasons, they’ll target ‘right wing’ anti-Islamic groups. Once the precedent is set, the State will be able to go after any group or individual.

This is a very serious development. It could mean the beginning of the end of democracy and free speech as we know it. On the 800th Anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta, Cameron is set to do away with our inalienable rights – all in the name of fighting ‘extremism’!”

A blind man on a flying horse could see where – unchallenged – this proposed legislation is going. In time, anyone deemed to be an ‘extremist’ will be subject of Prime Minister Cameron’s draconian ‘counter-terrorism’ bill.

And that’s why we want to raise around £200 to produce and distribute a special emergency issue of Liberty & Nation – the voice of the National Liberal Party.

The National Liberal Party has already started to take donations to help us in our work. Indeed, the NLPs ruling body, the National Council, is encouraging all members and supporters to make a donation, large or small. To find out how you can donate simply check out this link http://nationalliberal.org/issue-3-of-liberty-nation-calls-for-national-freedom-social-justice and scroll towards the bottom of the article.

Also helping out are our friends at http://www.15thjunemagnacarta.org/ who are organising a Liberty Bomb! Simply check out the web-site and make your donation here:

With the prospect of Cameron’s draconian ‘counter-terrorism’ bill hanging over our heads, we’ll leave the last word to Thomas Jefferson, one of America’s Founding Father’s, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776), and the third President of the United States (1801–1809).

Jefferson was a passionate believer of democracy and the rights of the individual. This is what he had to say about the relationship between the people and their government:

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

Issue 3 of Liberty & Nation Calls For National Freedom & Social Justice!

Issue 3 of Liberty & Nation is out now!

ISSUE 3 of Liberty & Nation – the voice of the National Liberal Party – is out now!

.
And thanks to the generosity of a Scottish supporter it’s available both in the traditional pdf form as well as hard copy.  As such, it makes the perfect educational and outreach tool for the NLP.
Issues 1 and 2 of Liberty & NationL&N – have looked at Federalism and homelessness respectively.  However, issue 3 is more idealistic in tone and calls for “National Freedom and Social Justice!”
.
Pointing out the difference between the NLP and the ‘old gang’ politicians, it notes that “our politics go way beyond ‘left’ and ‘right’, capitalism, socialism, unionism and republicanism.”
.
It then highlights the four ideals of National Liberalism – Liberty, Democracy, Independence and Ecology.
.
Calling for Liberty it calls for “industry, land and property” to be “as widely distributed as possible.”  L&N also notes that local shops, small businesses, family farms and the self-employed will form the cornerstone of our future economy.
.
When talking about Democracy, the paper notes that questions of public importance (like “electoral reform, membership of the EU and immigration”) should be put before the electorate.  Here the people should decide.  L&N also calls for an English Parliament.
.
For Independence, issue 3 of the paper unequivocally states that there must be “national, political, economic and cultural Self-Determination for all.” Given David Cameron’s recent call for a ban on ‘extremism’ (see below) L&N specifically opposes “any form of ‘Big Brother’ state” and believes “that ‘Small is Beautiful!”
L&N talks about Ecology in terms of living “in harmony with nature” and not destroying it.  A return to the land is called for – as are ‘human scale’ cities.  It rejects the madness of ‘unlimited’ economic growth in favour of “a sustainable economy.”
.
L&N then asks questions of its readers – and provides a stirring rallying cry:
.
“Are you fed up with the ‘old gang’ politicians?  Are you fed up with the endless cycles of boom and Bust?  Are you fed up with the lunacy of poverty amongst plenty?
.
If so, why not do something about it?  Support and join the National Liberal Party.  Join our fight for National Freedom and Social Justice!”
.
• HELP US build the infrastructure of our alternative mass media of news, views and entertainment!  Get 25 copies of issue 3 of Liberty & Nation for only £3 including post and packing.  Distribute them to family, friends, neighbours and workmates.  Don’t just moan about the politicians – take action and help us promote our message!

.
To get hold of your FREE pdf copy of issue 3 of Liberty & Nation, simply e-mail natliberal@aol.com and ask for it to be sent to you as soon as possible!
.
• THE NATIONAL LIBERAL PARTY urgently requires funds to produce issue 4 of Liberty & Nation. To read why this is so important click here: http://nationalliberal.org/help-the-nlp-campaign-for-civil-religious-liberties-for-all
.
Since his election victory earlier this month, David Cameron appears to think that he can ride roughshod over our traditional rights and freedoms.  He should remember that hundreds of thousands of people have fought – and many have paid the ultimate sacrifice – to defend the concept of free speech and civil and religious liberties for all.
.
Help us put a spanner in his works!  We need to alert as many people as possible to take action against his anti-democratic attack on free speech and freedom of assembly.

English Voice Says … National Freedom For England & Social Justice For The English!
.

.
ENGLISH VOICE – The Voice of the National Liberal Party in England – produced its first e-poster in support of the NHS early last year.  Its follow-up e-poster calls for National Freedom & Social Justice for England and the English.

In effect it’s a call for Self-Determination – so let’s take a look at what English VoiceEV – is calling for:

• National Freedom For England. England is the only nation within the UK that doesn’t have its own Parliament or Assembly.  At best, this represents a democratic deficit – at worst it’s another example of the establishment’s policy of Anglophobia.

England needs its own Parliamnet which will look after Englsih affairs – including the introduction of a formal constitution and bill of rights and the establishment of St. George’s Day as a national holiday.

EV would also like to see a saner and fairer voting system.  The ‘First Past The Post’ system has had its day – one only has to look at the results of last General Election to see that.  Instead, EV proposes popular rule involving Proportional Representation, voter recall, Referendums and Preferendums.  A ‘None of the Above’ option should appear on all election ballots.

•  Social Justice For The English! EV wants a stable, sustainable, yet properous economy.  We’d like to see our people in apprenticeships or full employment – and not schemes designed to rig the unemployment figures.  There should also be a living wage for everyone.

We’d also like to see affordable and decent housing for all.  The National Health Service should be regarded as a system of healthcare accesable to everyone – regardless of their economic circumstances.  The NHS should be a public service and not for private profit.

In addition, there should be generous provision for disability, maternity leave and retirement.  We also believe in free access to public education at all levels – from nursery school to university.  Those with special educational needs should also be well catered for.

The National Liberal Party would ask all of its members and supporters to viral this EV e-poster out via Social Media.  ‘Like and Share’ it on Facebook and retweet it via Twitter.
