New Horizon – Coming Soon!
ISSUE 1 of New Horizon, the National Liberal Party’s ideological publication will be out very soon.
Paying homage to an earlier Liberal National/National Liberal journal (which was published between 1942–68) it will initially be published on an ad-hoc basis as an e-magazine. It may later be printed in conventional form.
The purpose of the e-zine will be to “allow writers to dissect the philosophy behind National Liberalism, discuss the national liberal credentials of world figures, engage in political debate and promote policy ideas.”
Thus the first issue of New Horizon – edited by Graham Williamson – will feature articles on Democracy, the Environment, the NHS, the Economy, Civil Liberties, as well as Reviews and much, much more.
The e-zine has been slightly delayed – it was originally scheduled for either late October or early November – because of Graham’s involvement with the re-launch of Fourth World Review. He told us:
“I met John Papworth, the founder, former Editor and now Editorial Board member, at a meeting of Sikh nationalists earlier this year. Over the last few years, I’ve read various different copies of 4WR and always found them very interesting and informative. I’ve always admired John’s great sense of humour, which is evident in his writing, and his determination to promote the ideal of ‘small is beautiful’.
Therefore, it was a great honour and privilege to be asked by John to help co-edit 4WR – along with Wayne John Sturgeon – and be involved in its re-launch. At the time I knew that this might impact on New Horizon, but I thought that it was vital to agree to host 4WR so that it wouldn’t be lost to history.
As you’ll know, issue 153 of 4WR was re-launched in London on Monday 14 November to coincide with the publication of John Papworth’s latest book, Why Schools of Politics and Economics Should Be Closed Down.
With 4WR published, I can now concentrate on New Horizon. I know it’s been a long time coming, but I’m sure the wait will be worth it!”
Whilst still on the subject of New Horizon, Graham confirmed that the NLP will be publicizing the e-zine using cutting-edge promotional tools.
The first of these is this extremely eye-catching and attractive ‘pre-publication’ e-poster. Other innovative ideas will follow. Watch this space!
