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

Rod & Karrar at Boundary Rd Park ()

Councillors Rod Jones and Karrar Khan

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.

    Cut out Single Use Plastics, 'Chinese' Lanterns and Helium Balloons

    All Rushcliffe Councillors supported a motion calling on the Council and other organisations in Rushcliffe to introduce measures to do more to protect the environment.

    It is not generally known that take away coffee cups are not easily recyclable because they contain plastic. [They can be put in the tetrapack recycling containers but most people are unlikely to take them there!] Re-useable coffee cups can be bought and save you money at most coffee shops.

    A planning application has just been made for an Aldi store plus a care home with some extra-care apartments.

    Politics and Passion - Land Value Tax
    Thursday 8th March 2018

    Members and their guests are invited to a social evening at Sir Barnes Wallis at Ripley on Thursday March 8th at 7.30pm. Our guest will be William Davison, who will be speaking on the topic of Land Value Tax.

    William Davison will talk about Land Value Tax, a topic that has been central to Liberal thinking since the time of Lloyd George. Land Value Tax would provide the community with a share of the huge financial gains that can be made by simply owning land. It is especially relevant at a time when young people struggle to afford a home, and when wealth is so unfairly shared.

    Rushcliffe Liberal Democrats spokesman, Jason Billin expressed outrage at the Foreign Secretary's claim that his vision of the UK's future in the world is one based on Liberal values.

    Boris Johnson's only brush with Liberalism is to liberalise (reduce) restrictions on the rich and powerful. This has nothing at all to do with modern Liberal democratic values of openness, tolerance and protection of the vulnerable.
