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.

    The outrage around the country, since the EU referendum, has grown not just because Remain lost.

    If the Brexit camp had come forward with a prompt, coherent plan, if they were discussing any well constructed timetable, the situation would be different. As it is, residual anger is fuelled by the clear lack of sense coming from Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and co since the polls closed.

    I am devastated and I am angry. Today we woke to a deeply divided country.

    Nigel Farage's vision for Britain has won this vote, but it is not a vision I accept.

    An institution that we built, that delivered peace, that promoted equality, kept us safe and opened the doors of opportunity, will no longer play part of Britain's future.

    Speaking following the referendum result, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron said:

    "I'm devastated and I am angry. Today we wake to a deeply divided country.

    "Nigel Farage's vision for Britain has won this vote, but it is not a vision I share.

    "Young people voted to remain by a considerable margin, but were out voted. They were voting for their future, yet it has been taken from them.

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?


    From Andy Moore, OBE for services to MoD, Chair of Newbury Lib Dems

    The UK has been secure and has prospered because it has never been

    insular; remaining part of the EU means this will continue, to the

    benefit of everyone in the UK and reassurance of many both inside and outside

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?


    From Tony Vickers, Lt Col (Ret'd) Newbury

    The world is a wonderful but dangerous place, and European Civilisation

    has helped make it what it is. I believe that only by Europeans working together

    to influence world affairs can we British achieve a prosperous and safe future for our children and grandchildren.

    On 10 June Charlotte Crane delivered the following speech to a local audience as part of a debate on Britain's future in Europe. We reproduce it here with Charlotte's permission:

    Thank you all for coming this evening to discuss whether or not we should remain in the European Union.

    For me there are many reasons to remain in the Union, but the three most important are:

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?


    From Julian Swift Hook, Mayor, Newbury

    We are undoubtedly stronger together with our EU colleagues. The

    days of Empire are ancient history, the Commonwealth is little more than a name.

    To imagine the UK can build a trading relationship with the rest of the world equivalent

    to those we currently enjoy without complying with EU regulations is fantasy.

    Why do YOU think Britain is better off in Europe?


    From Judith Bunting, Parliamentary Spokesperson, Newbury

    Unemployment will swell to more than two million if Britain votes to

    leave the EU. Many large employers, like those in our area, will reduce

    operations or relocate- and those remaining will not be able to pick up the slack.

    In contrast, as part of Europe, young people have easy access to travel, work and study abroad.

  • Article: Jun 20, 2016
    Quite a few friends/acquaintances have queried why I am in favour of remaining since many of my generation are against the EU.

    I lived through last war as a child, worked in Germany with young Germans my own age, drank in bombed out Beer Kellers. Similar to bombed out Pubs in London. We worked on railway signalling principles towards a European wide system that was safe.
