Upkar Says … If You Live In The London Boroughs of Redbridge, Richmond upon Thames, Southwark and Sutton … SHOP LOCAL!

THE NATIONAL LIBERAL PARTY has produced its first leaflet to support Upkar Singh Rai’s bid to become Mayor of London in 2016.

The leaflet is designed to drum up support for local shops, small businesses and the self-employed throughout London. It explains that Upkar – and the NLP – supports localism. Localism is a policy which supports the local production and consumption of goods. It puts the local economy, community and environment first.

Upkar is determined to promote, protect and preserve small shops, local businesses and the self-employed. One of his ideas is to “host special days where shoppers are encouraged to spend a fiver – or even £1 – locally. Imagine the effect if just 100 people spent a £1 in each and every local shop!”

Another example of what can be done to promote local shopping can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kUkbtKJdV8

Produced to support shopping in Ballymena (in Co. Antrim, Ulster) this YouTube video has notched up over 90,000 views. There’s no reason why this concept can’t be used in London – or anywhere else for that matter.

We need to combine the power of Social Media to build support for local independent shops and smaller shopping parades. But we also need to build Upkar’s campaign to become Mayor of London in 2016.

This is because London needs someone with the political will to tackle the threat posed by the multi-nationals, banks and out-of-town superstores. Indeed, London needs someone who’ll support a programme of preference in favour of small shops, local businesses and the self-employed.
