  • Conference
    Article: Aug 16, 2017

    Although there are other Brexit- and EU-related items on the Liberal Democrats' Autumn Conference agenda, some of our local members were disappointed to see a consultation on Europe rather than a full debate on our party's position. A conference addendum has now been published, which will allow members attending the conference to vote on whether to proceed with the planned consultative session, or whether (instead) to hold a debate on "Opposing Brexit". You can find the addendum, including the text of the potential policy motion, on the party's website in the section for conference papers.

  • Suffolk Coastal Lib Dems - Pub & Policy events
    Article: Aug 15, 2017

    Suffolk Coastal Liberal Democrats are more than half-way through their whistle-stop tour of the policy motions coming up for debate in September's party conference.

    So far, we have visited Saxmundham, Martlesham, Butley, Aldeburgh and Felixstowe, and further discussion events are lined up in Woodbridge, Grundisburgh and Earl Soham.

  • Brexit news coverage
    Article: Aug 10, 2017

    Trying to keep up with Brexit developments? Looking for a range of different viewpoints? Some of our key news providers offer a specific "Brexit" category to help you get straight to the nitty-gritty.

    The New European's focus is entirely on Brexit and on the battle to remain in the European Union: http://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/home.

  • Vince Cable
    Article: Aug 9, 2017

    In this video from Lib Dem HQ, new party leader Vince Cable talks about the Liberal Democrats' view on Europe and Brexit. As the "Remain party", ours is the only party campaigning to offer the public the chance to choose "an Exit from Brexit".

  • Vince Cable Packed Hall
    Article: Aug 7, 2017

    Report from fellow East of England Liberal Democrats in Tring & Berkhamsted

    At a packed hall in the University of Cambridge Faculty of Law, West Road, Cambridge, last week the new Liberal Democrat Leader, Vince Cable addressed party members as part of a nationwide speaking tour which has taken him from West Country to Scotland in two crowded and strenuous weeks.

    Vince Cable, remarking on the massive polarisation of British politics today, told members he was optimistic for the future of the Liberal Democratic Party, especially when looking at the extreme positions being adopted by both the Conservatives and the Labour Party. Theresa May was now in a loose coalition with the hard right DUP and the Labour Party was now in the tight grip of Momentum, with the moderate Labour MPs intimidated by bullying and scared of deselection.
