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.

    Tim Farron and Caroline Pidgeon visited the Polish centre in London today to show solidarity with the Polish community and to make clear that xenophobic attacks it suffered recently will not be tolerated.



    The attack on the Polish Social and Cultural Association in Hammersmith was just one of numerous racist and xenophobic incidents reported in the week since the Brexit vote. The Liberal Democrat leader and London Assembly member were given a tour and met numerous people from the London Polish community, as well as staff from the Polish embassy.



    Tim Farron said: "We must send the message that racist thugs cannot get away with intimidating any of the diverse communities of the UK. One of Britain's great strengths is its mix of cultures, and despite the referendum result we must ensure that all citizens are made to feel safe.



    "Some of the racist campaign posters and disgusting claims by Nigel Farage and co in the referendum campaign have unleashed something very dangerous, as I warned at the time. This has led to some thinking that racist behaviour is acceptable. It isn't, and Nigel Farage shares the blame for making our streets less safe."



    The Polish centre has been inundated with flowers, cards and messages of goodwill since the attack.



    "The excellent people who staff this centre have taken great comfort from the support they have received from Britons up and down the country. The centre is a hugely impressive space and welcomes other communities into its heart. On my visit a local primary school was using its theatre to practice for a play. It is multi-cultural Britain at its best and must be protected."

    Liberal Democrats have welcomed the announcement that George Osborne is to abandon his fiscal rule and called on the Government to move Government spending to a 'war footing' to combat the impact of a Brexit Recession.

    The Liberal Democrat shave long said the fiscal rule would restrict growth, but it's impacts would be even more severe given the impact of a Brexit vote. They said that now is the time to dramatically increase spending on infrastructure to boost the economy.

    Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has committed to fight the next General Election on a platform taking Britain back into Europe.



    Since Britain voted for Brexit on Thursday thousands of people have joined the Liberal Democrats.



    Tim Farron has now said that in any upcoming national election he will promise to rejoin the European Union.



    The economic uncertainty will affect jobs, people's homes and livelihoods.



    The Liberal Democrats accept the result of the referendum but plan to make the case for us to rejoin the heart of Europe.



    Tim Farron said:



    "For many millions of people, this was not just a vote about Europe. It was a howl of anger at politicians and institutions who they felt they were out of touch and had let them down.



    "The British people deserve the chance not to be stuck with the appalling consequences of a Leave campaign that stoked that anger with the lies of Farage, Johnson and Gove.



    "The Liberal Democrats will fight the next election on a clear promise to restore British prosperity and role in the world, with the UK in the European Union, not out.

    Recently re-elected Reading Councillor Meri O'Connell, the Parliamentary Candidate for the Lib Dems in Reading West in 2015 gave this response to the EU Referendum on Sunday 26th as the dust began to settle.

    As we all reel from the aftermath of the referendum result it's worth noting that the majority of West Berkshire and Reading residents voted to remain, reflecting the outward looking values that make us such great places to live and work in. I know many people share the same sorrow that I feel at us voting to leave, but what has also struck me is how many people who voted to leave who are now regretting their vote.

    By Nick Hopkinson in Lib Dem Voice

    Tim Farron has rightly pledged we should campaign to take Britain back into the EU in the next general election. Should the election take place earlier than expected, we may still be an EU member, and should propose to withdraw from the Article 50 process.

    In either case, it would not be politically credible to advocate reinstating or maintaining EU membership without proposing major domestic initiatives on immigration. The overall Remain campaign failed to a considerable degree because it did not factor in concerns, whether real or imagined, about immigration. The voices of the, largely, English hinterland must be heeded. Any Lib Dem call to rejoin or remain in the EU should therefore be accompanied by proposals to alleviate the perceived and in many cases, real, impact of immigration.

    Commenting on the news that the majority of Labour MPs have said they have no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn, Liberal Democrat President Sal Brinton said:

    "At a moment when politicians must stand up and put aside tribal interests and put the nation first Labour have failed to meet that challenge.

    "Labour are imploding. Whilst Corbyn's MPs have voted for him to leave and for them to take control, he plans to limp on.

    In an article published this week the UK Constitutional Law Association discusses who can give formal notice to the EU of the UK's intention to withdraw under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. They argue that this right rests solely with parliament and not with the government as both a matter of UK and EU law. Now is the time to lobby your MP to vote against a hasty and irreversible triggering of Article 50.
