Welcome to the North West Hampshire Lib Dem Website!

Imagine a brighter future where our children grow up in a country where people are decent to each other, where we have good schools and hospitals, so that our children are well educated and well nourished, and our elderly are treated with dignity.

We as a country are about to face critical negotiations on our future relationship with the EU. Those negotiations will affect how we all live. Nobody yet knows what Brexit will look like. Theresa May wants to pursue Nigel Farage's costly version, starving our hospitals and schools with heartless cuts.

Jeremy Corbyn's Labour has let you down by voting with her and UKIP, not against them.

Brexit will affect your job, your weekly shop, your environment, your safety, where you can travel to and where you can live. That's why it's right that you should have a say over the final deal, why you should have a choice over your future.

The more Liberal Democrat MPs, the better the deal on Europe. The better the deal on Europe, the more money for the NHS and schools.

In North West Hampshire we have a Tory candidate who was asked to step down by the MS Society as their patron after voting for cuts to disability benefit. His party, the Tories, now plan to cut pensions and benefits and take away school meals.

As a Liberal Democrat councillor I have always worked for the future of all. I would like to fight as your Member of Parliament for you and your right to choose your future; your right to have your say on the Brexit deal. If elected as your MP I will fight the savage cuts that are crippling our country.

If you want a brighter future, please lend me your support by voting Liberal Democrat.

Alex Payton Liberal Democrat Parliamentary spokesman for NW Hampshire

    Over the last five weeks, hundreds of Liberal Democrat activists have been hard at work campaigning in Lewisham East, for our fantastic candidate, Lucy Salek.

    And last night, their hard work was rewarded - we quadrupled our share of the vote and delivered a 19% swing against Labour - the largest swing against a Labour opposition since 1983.

    Recent events have raised the profile of the Windrush Generation in the media and public consciousness, but sadly not for reasons our country can be proud of. Instead, we should be celebrating the contributions of migrant communities in the UK.

    Windrush citizens like myself have lived here for decades, working, raising families and making a positive contribution to British society. Our generation answered the call to help address the UK's post-WW2 labour shortage, yet many of our children know nothing of that Windrush legacy.

    To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Windrush, Liberal Democrats are calling for 22nd June to be recognised as 'National Windrush Day'. Let's give people from all ethnic backgrounds a reason to celebrate their unique identities, histories and rightful home in UK.

    In news from Scotland, the Liberal Democrats have been instrumental in delivering new legislation that offers greater protection and powers to Scotland's island communities.

    Year in year out, our islands are voted among the best places to live. From unique culture to breathtaking landscapes and world class heritage, we have it all. But for those of us who live and work in our islands, we know there are also unique challenges.

    The EU Withdrawal Bill came back to the House of Commons this week after 15 Government defeats in the Lords. Theresa May's strategy this week was shaped entirely by her tenuous grip over her own ranks.

    Theresa May has struggled for months to maintain Tory unity during her mishandling of Brexit negotiations. Cabinet disputes are spilling into public view, ministers are resigning, and Boris Johnson is whispering about his wish to replace Theresa with Trump.

    On May 4th, South Cambs Lib Dems stormed to victory in all up elections on new boundaries, winning 30 of the 45 seats. Previously we'd held just 14 out of 57 seats. Cllr Bridget Smith became the leader of South Cambridge District Council, and won the chance to put liberal politics into practice and make people's lives better where she lives.

    West Berkshire's Liberal Democrat Party Chairman Tony Vickers has written to Newbury MP Richard Benyon urging him to vote in favour of the people having the final say on Brexit, including the option to remain in the EU. Parliament debates the EU Withdrawal Bill this week.
    Dr Vickers said it was "crunch time" and urged Mr Benyon to "put country before party" and added: "Brexit is an immediate threat to our economy and public services. From the drop in the value of the pound to the shortage of skilled workers, the impact is already being felt in West Berkshire."
    "Regardless of how people voted, it is clear that no one is getting what they wanted.
    That is why it is so important the people, not the politicians, have the final say on the deal, including the option to remain in the EU".
    The EU Withdrawal Bill is returning to the House of Commons on Tuesday 12th June.
    The Bill returns from the House of Lords where over 100 amendments were made, including 15 Government defeats. The Liberal Democrats have lodged an amendment which, if successful, will ensure the people have the final say on the Brexit deal, including the option to remain in the EU.
    Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake MP has said: "The Lords defeated the Government on fifteen occasions. In doing so, membership of the European Economic Area was backed and attempts to hand ministers 'blank cheque' powers were squashed. This was achieved because both Tory and Labour Peers joined the Liberal Democrats and voted with their conscience, defying their parties' whips.
    "The Brexit ball is now back in the Common's court. The challenge for MPs of all political colours is to follow the example set by their colleagues and vote to defend the interests of their constituents."

    By-elections might not be able to change the Government, but shock results can change politics and change Britain.

    And now we have a chance to do just that in Lewisham East.

    Since the referendum, every time Jeremy Corbyn could have stood up to the Tories on Brexit, he's sat on his hands.

    We can only stop Brexit with the Labour party's votes. And the only way we get those votes is if they're scared of a pro-European tide sweeping them away.

    He explores some of the serious problems facing capitalism today, and how these issues have provoked reactions from the extremes of the political spectrum. Common sense reform is necessary to curb the worst excesses of capitalism.

    "Scarcely a day goes by without a scandal erupting around greedy or bullying bosses, pilfered pension funds, business tax dodging, chaotic private train operators, rewards for failure, bankers' bonuses, price gouging or exploitation of gig workers, zero hours contract employees or modern slaves.

    The government's Brexit stance is riddled with legal confusion

    Only Parliament - not the Government and indeed not a referendum - can decide IF the UK leaves the EU. At the moment, the Government only has permission to say it intends to leave. A leading lawyer argues that, if Parliament rejects the deal to leave, the UK has to stay in.
