In September last year, Liam Fox took some flak for making the following comments:

“This country is not the free-trading nation it once was. We have become too lazy, and too fat on our successes in previous generations.”

He added:

“Companies who could be contributing to our national prosperity – but choose not to because it might be too difficult or too time-consuming or because they can’t play golf on a Friday afternoon – we’ve got to be saying to them if you want to share in the prosperity of our country you have a duty to contribute to the prosperity of our country.”

Do you agree with Liam Fox? When it comes to free trade, do you think we have become lazy? Whatever your point of view, why not have your say at this year’s Freedom Festival? This year’s Freedom Festival in Bournemouth runs from Friday 17th – Sunday 19th March, and we have a bumper programme for you.
