Exe Valley by-election 23 Sept

Congratulations to Sarah Green MP

A big thank you for all those across East Devon who went to help the campaign

The pundits thought it would be close, in the end Sarah and the team overturned a 16k majority with a 8k margin. The biggest shift to LibDems came from disenchanted Tories who no longer support this extreme government regime.

    Leader of the Welsh Lib Dems Jane Dodds gave her speech at conference today! We've put together some highlights below or you can read the speech in full here.

    She started with a reminder of a longstanding democratic tradition in Wales and the 1999 election to the Welsh Assembly

    "Almost 600 years after the first Welsh Parliament was established in June 1404, the people of Wales once again had its own national democratic institution"

    As Liberal Democrats we are hare holding the Government to account for its foreign policy failure over Afghanistan.

    20 years on from the US-led invasion, the Taliban have swept into Kabul. They seized power illegitimately without the consent of the Afghan people.

    The UK has a moral duty to the people of Afghanistan"

    The Government has only managed to negotiate one new trade deal - with Australia - since leaving the EU. It has simply "rolled over" 23 existing trade agreements that we were already parts of. This simply isn't good enough.

    A thriving economy needs thriving international trade. UK companies doing business in the EU need our help now. We are also at risk of losing our long-established status as a finance hub. Put simply, the government must get its act together.

    We've passed through some great changes to our Party constitution today that will update how party groups - previously known as SAOs and AOs work.

    The changes will expand the rights of party groups, simplify the process of setting one up and ensure that party groups get more support and are better integrated into the party.

    Our society is a brilliant one. Our democratic system goes back hundreds of years and we are committed to the fair rule of law. We have a fantastic tradition of education, creativity and innovation.

    We have incredibly strong institutions. This is clear in the fact our National Health Service has bent over backwards to support us through this pandemic. As much as possible we contribute to key international organisations to support a cooperative global system.

    Lib Dem leader Ed Davey gave his keynote speech to conference today! We've pulled some of the highlights for you - but if you want to read the full speech you can find it here.

    Boris Johnson's Conservative Government is steering us all into another terrible crisis.

    Ed started on the supply chain crisis

    Conference, our country needs us.

    Our country needs the Liberal Democrats, fighting harder for a better future and a fair deal.

    Because after five years of Brexit division and disruption -

    And eighteen months of this awful pandemic -

    Boris Johnson's Conservative Government is steering us all into another terrible crisis.

    We have seen the Conservative Government fail over and over again. Indifference and inaction in Westminster has caused the deaths of over 150,000 people from Covid, and counting.

    Even senior members of the Government did not follow the lockdown and social distancing rules. It is clear they see it as one rule for them, and another for the rest of us.

    It was fantastic to talk with Ed today. He gave answers to our member's concerns on Liberal Democrat policy

    The full Q and A will be posted soon but below are some of our highlights.

    Resolving the Healthcare Sector Crisis

    Ed pointed out that the most important thing we can do for our healthcare system is to resolve the vacancies issue.

    As Liberal Democrats, we believe in an equal, open, green society in which everybody has the chance to succeed. Whether giving power to local governments to lead the communities that they know best or fighting for a Britain that steps up to its international obligations, we want the UK to represent the people who live here - not just a small group of Westminster politicians and elites.

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.
