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

We currently have two 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 a hard 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.

    Brexit isn't either all good or all bad. It's a very complicated mixture - with some good and bad consequences. During the Brexit negotiations it is important that our politicians understand those areas where there is potential for bad things to happen, so that they take care to avoid them.

    One of the most threatened areas is the 'British' motor manufacturing industry. This industry employs 169,000 people in this country, but it is not British owned, nor does it produce cars using only British components. Its owners are from Japan, France, Germany, India, America etc.. It assembles cars using many imported components - 79% of them from the EU.
