General Election Announcement

General Election Announcement

Dear Party Faithful,

Firstly let me thank everyone involved in the recent council election campaign. It was a bumpy ride but well worth the effort.

Special thanks to Derek Scott, Stevie McNamara (again), Peter Sidor and Abe Maymay for absolutely sterling work. Many thanks to all who stood and congratulations to Chris Collings and Daniel Fraser for a great result. The latter breaking the party record with 99 votes. Red balloons in the post.

I believe overall it was a successful campaign for us and merely the beginning …

General Election June 8th

General Election June 8th

The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has decided to disrupt our council election campaign by selfishly and inconsiderately calling a snap General Election. (Tsk!)

However, be that as it “May”, if life gives you lemons…squeeze them back in the ****s eyes is what I say.

Accordingly the leadership team will be doing our best to appoint a campaign manager and place some candidates in key positions in Scotland. Given our current financial situation we are looking at three, possibly four, candidates at the most but ideally I’d …

Scottish Council Elections 2017

Scottish Council Elections 2017

A Call to Arms.

 

Our campaign to inject Libertarian principles into the Scottish body politic continues with our plan to field candidates for May 4th.

You may be aware that our membership secretary, Stephen McNamara, recently stood in the Kilmarnock East and Hurlford by election, achieving a new council election record  of 53 first votes and 305 seconds. These numbers are not as important as the fact that almost 3000 people were presented with a ballot paper featuring our party name and logo.

Awareness is growing.

In view of this, …

5 Reasons to vote Libertarian in the Leith by-election

By Antony Sammeroff

 

Reduce government waste

Government programs are notoriously wasteful, but currently our nation is divided between left wingers who want absolutely no cuts to government spending, and conservatives who want to abruptly pull the rug out from underneath the most vulnerable people in our society rather than targeting corporate welfare, immoral wars, wasteful military spending, and big government bureaucracy. The Libertarian Party will work to oppose wasteful spending and reduce the tax burden on regular individuals …

Another Hurdle Passed For Scottish Libertarian Party

Scottish Libertarian Party Quick Update  

Last week, an agreement was reached with the United Kingdom Libertarian Party (UKLP) for use of the name “libertarian” in Scotland.  The Election Commission had refused to allow us to register our party as the Scottish Libertarian Party because of rules pertaining to similar names that might confuse voters.  The UKLP has kindly agreed to amend their registration so that they will no longer be running for elections in Scotland, thus leaving us free to register the party.

The next step …
