Exeter Phoenix 2nd and 5th September 2018

DevonforEurope has arranged for two local showings of the film. Made by travelling the length and breadth of Britain, director David Wilkinson has interviewed remainers from different backgrounds reminding us that, far from it being a landslide victory, there remain many voices still fighting for the UK to stay part of the European Union.

Highly recommended. Book tickets through Exeter Phoenix - click here

Finger on the pulse: national party updates

    Exmouth District and Town Councillors Steve Gazzard and Tim Dumper have been speaking up at town council and expressing the concerns of residents over proposed bus changes.

  • David Chalmers & Eleanor Rylance at Pride in Plymouth 11/08/18 (Eleanor Rylance)

    By Eleanor Rylance

    Saturday 11th August was cold, windy and rainy in Plymouth but nothing could dampen the enthusiasm of the marchers of Pride in Plymouth, including a number of Liberal Democrats from Plymouth and around the South West.

    Caroline Voaden, David Chalmers and Eleanor Rylance, along with Archie the Liberal Demadogue were among LibDems prepared to get soaked to the bones for the LibDem cause. Pride is always a fantastic, upbeat event, attended by many young people, and our little stall was mobbed by young people congratulating us for fighting for the pro-EU cause, and defending liberal values of tolerance and acceptance.

    It may be mid-August but the bad news about Brexit is increasing by the day! Senior Brexiteers such as Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg continue to peddle their populist nonsense, against the facts: the pound dropping against the Euro; international organisations moving their EU HQ out of Britain; and even the Governor of the Bank of England confirming Brexit will not be good for the economy. Only Vince Cable and the Lib Dems remain totally committed to an Exit from Brexit, and giving the people a Final Say on the deal, with more regions that voted leave now changing their minds.

    The last ten days have seen major stories of racism in both of Britain's major parties.

    What is happening in the Labour party - and Boris Johnson's comments this week - are frightening to many Jewish and Muslim people living in Britain.

    This is a reflection of the way the politics of identity dominates politics today and attracts comments, sometimes critical or offensive, about particular groups.

    After the 2015 election disaster, a comprehensive post-mortem led by James Gurling analysed what had gone wrong and made a huge number of detailed recommendations of what should be done differently next time.

    However, the snap election of 2017, coming just two years later and out of left field, meant that we were still recovering from 2015 and had not had much chance to implement many of those changes.
