Greater London Assembly Elections 2020 – Help Us Fight For National & Political Self-Determination For All!

.

THE National Liberal Party – NLP – hopes to promote the idea of Self-Determination For All! by standing for election in the Greater London Assembly elections.  These are scheduled for May 2020.

.

Some information about our campaign has already been posted up – http://nationalliberal.org/self-determination-for-all-3 - and we intend to produce regular updates as our campaign progresses.  We’re initially looking for 25 London-based candidates who’d like to represent their people & nation.  Candidates must be prepared to help partly self-finance their campaigns.  If you think that you fit the bill, please contact us as soon as possible by e-mailing natliberal@aol.com

.

In the meantime, however, we thought that it would be appropriate to provide some general background material relating to self-determination and explain why we feel that it’s such an important concept.

.

A general statement – relating to the concept of self-determination – has been produced by the NLP.  We’re serialising it over the next few weeks, so that fellow self-determinists can read, digest and comment on it.

.

Our first section related to National Self-Determination and now we continue on with Political Self-Determination.

.

As debate is free with the NLP, we’d appreciate any comments, suggestions, queries or constructive criticism relating to our statement.  Please post them (in the comments section) on either the National Liberal Party Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/NationalLiberalParty/ or the National Liberals Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/52739504313/ when you see this article posted up.

.

Here’s our general statement relating to self-determination – let us know what you think:

.

SELF-DETERMINATION FOR ALL!

.

THE DISCONNECT between professional politicians and the people has never been greater. The decisions taken by the former are more often viewed as self-serving in the eyes of the latter.

.

Professional politicians, often labelled as so-called ‘elites’, are largely divorced from the everyday experiences of the great mass of people. Thus, we should not be surprised that they are often seen to take political positions and decisions at odds with most people.

.

The answer to this gulf between the present day ‘rulers’ and ‘ruled’ is found in the principle of Self-Determination; i.e. Putting decision making into the hands of the individual rather than ‘others’.

.

PRINCIPLE OF SELF-DETERMINATION

.

This principle can be applied largely in three areas; National, Political and Economic.

.

National Self-Determination seeks to ensure decisions affecting the collective future of a nation are taken by ALL the people via referendum. This may be ‘External’, for example: the creation or maintenance of a nation state, or ‘Internal’ – framing/updating a constitution to reflect how a people should rule themselves. (We favour independent nations and liberal, democratic, states).

.

Political Self-Determination seeks to ensure that the collective will of the people as well as the variety of political opinion is reflected in decision making. Thus, for example, we favour greater use of referendums to meet the former, and PR to reflect the latter (we favour a system close to the Swiss model of Direct Democracy).

.

To be continued.
