The Liberal Democrats in Rushcliffe are a growing local party, working on behalf of all the residents of Rushcliffe.

Candidates 2019

Councillors Rod Jones, Lizzie Hewitt and Annie Major, with fellow Lib Dem candidates

We now have three elected Liberal Democrat members on the Conservative-controlled Rushcliffe Borough Council.

We keep in touch with local residents all year round through regular FOCUS leaflets and email updates, and we contest almost every seat in local and parliamentary elections.

The Liberal Democrats are proud to be the only party commited to fighting the damaging effects of Brexit, both locally and nationally.

If we can help you in any way, please get in touch.

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

    There is something that the architects of Brexit are desperately trying to distract us from.

    Our planet is in crisis, balanced on a knife-edge at the point of no return.

    Our planet is in crisis, balanced on a knife-edge at the point of no return.

    Due to man-made climate change, global temperatures are soaring, the polar ice caps are melting faster than ever before, and whole nations are already facing the existential crisis of rising sea levels and extreme weather. Whole species of animals are being wiped out month by month, and global famine is a very real threat.

    Hello Conference!

    What a brilliant time to be a Liberal Democrat!

    On the 7th May next year, London voters will make a decision of national and international importance. Who will be the next Mayor of London.

    They will decide who they believe embodies the very spirit of London. Who will stand up for global, liberal, pro-European, warm-hearted and dynamic values. Who will reflect and reinforce the optimism, diversity and entrepreneurialism of our capital.

    Conference, I don't know about you, but when you knock on doors canvassing, and people say "Oh, you're all the same", it can be quite frustrating.

    Brexit has changed all that. Everyone now knows, we are very different from Johnson's Conservatives and Corbyn's Labour.

    Was Javid's decision to strip Shamima Begum's citizenship about the safety of our country or the advancement of his career?

    Vince began by thanking everyone who had helped him during his time as leader, and saying what he'd be doing next:

    "I have fought ten national elections over half a century. I couldn't have done that on my own without the emotional and practical support of my wife Rachel and my late wife Olympia. And without my dedicated team of volunteers in Twickenham and in Parliament led by Dee Doocey."
