English Youth Says BreXit Now!
.
LAST MONTH Liberal Future – the youth wing of the National Liberal Party (NLP) – launched its BreXit Now! campaign.

LF detailed its support for the NLPs stance on the EU – that it must be opposed on the grounds of self-determination and decentralism – and that liberal youth should campaign for a Leave vote in the EU referendum.

We also noted the popularity of the referendum:

‘As everyone knows, the referendum took place on Thursday 23 June 2016. It turned out to be one of the greatest acts of popular expression ever seen – with over 33 million people from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Gibraltar having their say.

In the end, a majority of the electorate (nearly 17 ½ million people representing 51.89%) voted for Brexit – to leave the European Union.’

However, after the vote LF were left slightly puzzled at the lack of movement:

‘Liberal Future – along with many, many others – imagined that once the decision was made, the first real steps would be taken to get Britain out of the EU. However, to date, Westminster seems to be stalling. No-one seems to be interested in taking the first step. There doesn’t really seem to be any action. Why? We know that new Tory leader Theresa May campaigned to stay in the EU – does she know something we don’t?’

As we know David Davis has been appointed as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union (the ‘Brexit Secretary’) and heads up the Department for Exiting the European Union.

LF is reasonably happy with the appointment of David Davis to this position. He’s a well-known Eurosceptic, supports civil liberties and can be described as a compassionate Conservative – he was born to a single mother and was initially brought up by his grandparents. He was later raised on a council estate in South London. From a Brexit point of view, he seems a reasonable choice. Hopefully, he’ll be true to his word – but one can never be too sure in politics. Who knows what pressure he’ll come under both from within and without the Tory party?

Despite the appointment of David Davis, the British electorate is still getting mixed messages from various establishment figures.

Theresa May famously said that ‘Brexit means Brexit.’ However even after meeting her cabinet at her official country residence of Chequers, Buckinghamshire (at the end of last month) and her appearance at the G20 summit in China (at the start of this month) nobody is really any the wiser. She hasn’t seized the initiative regarding Brexit and seems happy to simply ‘tread water’ for the moment.

Meanwhile the likes of Labour leadership hopeful Owen Smith are calling for another Referendum. Various individuals and parties opposed to Brexit are also talking about posing legal challenges to the vote. Meanwhile many British youngsters who couldn’t be bothered to vote still claim that their future has been stolen!


At the end of the day, Liberal Future suspects that the large corporations and banks will call the shots.

With this in mind, it’s clear that we need to keep the pressure up on the politicians and not let them allow the Brexit vote to be quietly and conveniently put on the ‘long finger’ if not ‘forgotten’ altogether. Therefore, we’re calling for all those who support Brexit – no matter what your political position – to keep it at the top of the political agenda.

You can help do this by simply promote this article now and later on ‘liking and sharing’ it once it appears on the National Liberal Party’s Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/NationalLiberalParty/?fref=ts and National Liberals Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/groups/52739504313/ Those who have Twitter should link to the article as well.

Liberal Future Says … BreXit Now!

.


LIBERAL FUTURE is the youth wing of the National Liberal Party – NLP.  As such we’re interested in networking with those who’re under 30 who want to get their voice heard.  Our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/groups/706779429376233/ – provides a political forum for liberal young adults to discuss issues such as self-determination and liberty.

Self-determination is a key issue for us.  That’s why, way back in November of last year, we wholly supported a statement from the NLPs ruling National Council  concerning the EU Referendum.  The statement, entitled EU – Time To Regain Control, noted that:

‘As self-determinists and decentralists, we support referendums in general but we also oppose in principle centralised power structures e.g. the EU and believe in the nation-state (which the EU would dismantle and replace with its own artificial one). Thus it is not surprising that, after a debate, the ruling National Council has voted that the party will campaign, until further notice, for a Leave vote at the proposed EU referendum.’

As everyone knows, the referendum took place on Thursday 23 June 2016.  It turned out to be one of the greatest acts of popular expression ever seen – with over 33 million people from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Gibraltar having their say.

In the end, a majority of the electorate (nearly 17 ½ million people representing 51.89%) voted for Brexit – to leave the European Union.

Liberal Future – along with many, many others – imagined that once the decision was made, the first real steps would be taken to get Britain out of the EU.  However, to date, Westminster seems to be stalling.  No-one seems to be interested in taking the first step.  There doesn’t really seem to be any action.  Why?  We know that new Tory leader
Theresa May campaigned to stay in the EU – does she
know something we don’t?


With this in mind, Liberal Future has launched its BreXit Now! campaign.  It seeks to remind the Establishment that the people have spoken and that they overwhelmingly voted in favour of democracy and sovereignty and thus against the EU.  It follows that we should have already started negotiations designed to get Britain out of the EU.

Over the weeks and months ahead (and years if necessary!) Liberal Future will be actively campaigning for BreXit Now!

Building Our Local Media
THE NATIONAL LIBERAL PARTY is building the infrastructure of an alternative mass media of news, views and entertainment.

To this end we’ve produced UK-wide publications as well as national, regional and local publications. Some have been hard copies which are distributed at demonstrations, pickets, meetings or on a door-to-door basis. All are also available in pdf format which means that they can be distributed on line.

To date we’ve produced – in alphabetical order – the following titles: Caledonian Voice, Cuffley Courier (Hertfordshire), English Voice, Isle of Wight Voice, Kent Voice, Liberal Worker, Liberty & Nation, St. Andrews Voice (Havering) and New Horizon, our ideological journal.

It’s taken a huge effort to get this far. However, our alternative media is growing – albeit slowly and organically.

But now we want to move up a gear and produce even more.

We want to expand our alternative media so that we produce a Voice for every county, city and town in Britain. That’s a tall order – so how do we hope to achieve this?

First of all, we have to understand that – at this stage in the development of our media – we’re only be looking for very special people. As we’ve noted before, they’ll likely to be fairly quiet and thoughtful people. They’ll look way beyond the bluster and headlines (that passes for politics these days) and will examine cold hard facts and figures. They’ll also be free-thinkers and non-conformists.

These people will also understand that, to build our new media, they’ll need to operate as a ‘vanguard’ or ‘cadre’ does. That is to say that they’ll be dedicated to the task in hand. We don’t need ‘hobbyists’ or ‘talkers’ to produce and distribute our media. We need people who will do things.

So how do we reach – and recruit – these very special people?

We intend to produce a series of e-posters highlighting issues that relate to different areas. We will then viral out these e-posters via social media. In effect we’ll be spreading our educational and outreach seeds everywhere and from what sprouts we’ll pick our quality recruits from it.

With a sound understanding of National Liberalism they’ll be integrated with our current media team to produce publications for their area. Hopefully, their labours will produce more fruit in terms of quality recruits.

Our first new e-poster will be produced on behalf of Essex Voice and should be available within the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, anyone who fancies getting involved in the production of our alternative media should contact nationalliberal@aol.com as soon as possible. We look forward to hearing from you.
