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

    Jo Swinson's Speech

    In her keynote speech Jo Swinson declared that the Liberal Democrats are the only party who will put people at the heart of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

    When society demanded better, it was liberals who delivered. The Fourth Industrial Revolution gives us the same opportunity, and Conference - we must deliver again.

    Tom Brake's Speech

    The Liberal Democrat (anti-Brexit) Spokesperson set out a vision for the UK staying in the EU with a real Brexit dividend of getting out of this madness. He also had a few words for some of the individuals responsible for this continued mess:

    On Boris Johnson:

    "If that is our PM's vision of No Deal Brexit Britain, what is the Brexit Britain vision of the man widely tipped to be the future leader of the Tory party, Boris - punishment-beatings, Road to Mandalay, prosecco - Johnson?

    The Liberal Democrats are opposing Government proposals to:

    • criminalise "reckless" speech,
    • make it a crime just to travel to certain places,
    • criminalise what you read on the internet,
    • give police more power to hold innocent people's DNA, and
    • allow officers to detain people at airports without suspicion.
  • Article: Sep 12, 2018

    The party expects these reforms to raise an additional £15 billion per year, though this is likely to grow as the rate of wealth passed down increases in the coming years.

    Liberal Democrat members will debate and vote on the proposals at the party's Autumn Conference in Brighton next week.

    Proposals include:
