THE NATIONAL LIBERAL PARTY supports freedom – that’s why we oppose both capitalism and socialism.
We feel that only a society of owners, represented by small traders, family firms and partnerships, can oppose the tyranny of the marketplace – capitalism – and the tyranny of the state – socialism. Capitalism allows the concentration of ownership in the hands of a few. Socialism tries to deny any form of private ownership. Our ideal (known as Distributism) aims to create a community of free men and women.
Therefore, National Liberals are asked to support their local entrepreneurs, small businesses and the self-employed. One way to do this effectively is to shop local wherever possible. With this in mind, we’d like to draw everyone’s attention to a forthcoming event – Small Business Saturday.
This year it will be held on Saturday 3rd December.
The idea of the campaign is to encourage the UK public to shop local on one of the busiest shopping days of the year, helping boost revenue for small businesses and celebrating the big difference you make.
According to the Small Business Saturday web-site - https://smallbusinesssaturdayuk.com –
last year’s campaign was a great success as ‘UK shoppers spent £623 million with small businesses on Small Business Saturday.’
The NLP urges everyone to support this campaign. By doing so you’re supporting your local community in terms of sustaining the local economy and jobs. It’s vital that we support the local independent sector – otherwise we’re simply bolstering the bank accounts of massive multinational giants who have only one interest – the size of their profit margin.
As the Small Business Saturday web-site notes ‘get involved and make the most of the big day for small businesses.’
