Welcome to the North West Hampshire Lib Dem Website!

Thank you for visiting our website and thank you also if you are one of the many people who supported us in the elections in 2015.

For the Liberal Democrats, one of the most important things is to be accessible to local residents - all year round. We believe in letting local people know what we are doing and in actively involving people in shaping what happens in the local area. This website is a part of that - with a wide range of information about our campaigning locally and nationally.

If you have any suggestions of other information you would like to see on this website, please do e-mail us at info@nwhantslibdems.org.uk. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Commenting on the Queen's Speech, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron said:



    "Only one year in and this Conservative majority is running out of steam.



    "30 announcements, but 28 have been made before. Weekend prisoners, announced by a weakened Government.



    "The Queen's Speech is a stop-gap to give the warring factions of the Tory party a couple of day's respite from the referendum. It does nothing to address the key issues at stake.



    "This country's challenges on education, housing, investment, skills, and the environment are either ignored, or offered nothing more than empty rhetoric.



    "The Conservatives are continuing their dogmatic assault on civil liberties with the ongoing threat of the snooper's charter and an obsession to tear up the human rights act. We will fight them every step of the way.



    "There are enough re-runs on BBC without having to get the Queen to do her own."

    Paying tribute to David Rendel, former Liberal Democrat MP for Newbury who passed away last night, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:

    "I am hugely saddened by the loss of David Rendel. He was a committed, selfless individual who I will remember particularly for his unyielding campaigning over so many years. I will miss him.

    Newbury and West Berkshire Liberal Democrats are mourning the loss of David Rendel who died peacefully at home on Monday 16 May 2016 after a battle with cancer.

    David was MP for Newbury from 1993 to 2005, having been elected at the historic by-election. His majority of 22,055, the product of the unpopularity of John Major's Conservative government and the energy and determination of David's campaigning, remains the highest ever majority in the history of the Liberal Party and Liberal Democrats. The President of Newbury and West Berkshire Liberal Democrats, Christopher Marriage describes the result as "David putting the Liberal Democrats on the map".

    In the past couple of months, I have given some 30 talks and debates at schools, universities and community groups in Greater London and the South East making the case for remaining in the EU. With little over a month remaining before the referendum, an event which could profoundly change our country for the worse, now might be a good time to brainstorm with fellow campaigners on how we might best proceed.

  • EU Action Day 16May16
    Article: May 14, 2016

    Today (Saturday) Liberal Democrats across the South Central Region held street stalls and made the positive, progressive case for remaining in the European Union.

    Liberal Democrats are internationalists because we understand that by working together countries can achieve more than they can alone. We want Britain, and England, to stay in Europe because that is how we keep our country strong, prosperous, safe and green.

    So much of the debate around Europe has been about financial projections, trading complex cost benefit analyses about what will happen if we stay or leave. And fascinating though that all is, my hunch is that it might not, on its own, clinch the right result.

    Because there is much more to this Referendum than the economy, crucial though that is.

    Article: May 12, 2016

    In a report published yesterday the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics analyses the impact of migration on wages and job propects for UK nationals. It flatly contradicts Iain Duncan Smith's claim that migration drives down wages. Key findings of the report include:

    • That EU immigrants are more educated, younger, more likely to be in work and less likely to claim benefits than the UK-born.
    • That areas of the UK with large increases in EU immigration did not suffer greater falls in the jobs and pay of UK-born workers
    • That there is little effect of EU immigration on inequality through reducing the pay and jobs of less skilled UK workers.
    • EU immigrants pay more in taxes than they take out in welfare and the use of public services.
    • The refugee crisis has nothing to do with EU membership. Refugees admitted to Germany have no right to live in the UK.

    Commenting ahead of the publication of reformed EU refugee laws, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said



    "Any proposals to strengthen Dublin regulations are welcome but do not alone do enough to confront the humanitarian crisis in Europe.



    "It will take time to make Dublin more effective and efficient and this is something we simply don't have. That is why the PM must act now and offer safety to 3,000 vulnerable refugee children who are unaccompanied in Europe. Many Conservative MPs are u-turning on their vote against this last week, and it is time for the PM to join them."

    Commenting on reports that new London Mayor Sadiq Khan is expected to announce the introduction of a 'one hour bus ticket' , Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon said:



    "The Liberal Democrats have been campaigning for a One Hour Bus Ticket for the best part of a decade in London. I welcome our policy being adopted by London's new mayor and hope that he will go further and also implement our policy for half price travel for journeys on the transport network before 7.30am."
