Protecting our planet is more important than ever, and the Liberal Democrats are leading the way

Over the past two months we have seen the Liberal Democrats go from strength to strength, gaining more than 700 councillors at the local elections (including 8 new councillors on Tewkesbury Borough Council) and 25 per cent of the vote at the EU elections.

People are voting for the Liberal Democrats, many for the first time, because of our clear messaging on the most important issues of the day. Some like what we have to say on Europe, others on issues such as health and educations, but lots of people support us because of our unwavering support for the environment.

A message of hope for 2019

These are difficult times to be involved in politics, but as liberals we know things can and must be better. Looking forward to 2019, the liberal movement must continue to let people know there is another way. We can have well funded schools and healthcare.

Paddy Ashdown will be missed

Heartbroken that the great Paddy Ashdown passed away this evening. He was a dedicated Liberal; his gravitas and leadership will be missed, and the best way that we can honour his memory is to continue campaigning for a open, tolerant, liberal Britain. My thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time.
