Campaigning in Witney

With Liz Luffman in Witney

On Saturday 8 October some of us went to join in the campaign to get Liz Leffman elected in the Witney by-election, caused by the resignation of David Cameron as an MP.

It was an exciting day: more than 370 LibDems were out campaigning that day alone, offering the chance to connect with LibDems from across the country.

In the end the result was a leap from 7% of the vote in 2015 to 30%, with the Tory vote share falling from 60% to 45%. That's enough to register shock over the harsh tone of the 2016 Tory party conference, and rumours of a "hard Brexit".

Liberal Democrats remain committed to seeking a future for the UK within the European Union and a good result here would help pull things back towards finding a healthy future in Europe.

East Herts District Council By-Election in Puckeridge - An encouraging result

On 16 September, Sara achieved 18% of the vote in the by-election in Puckeridge, caused by the resignation of Conservative councillor James Cartwright. This is more than double the share of the vote achieved by Liberal Democrats in Hertford and Stortford and North East Hertfordshire constituencies in the General Election, and a remarkable result in a ward where we had not put forward a candidate in recent elections.Well done to Sara and the team for all their hard work.

Recent updates from the Liberal Democrats

The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united, and committed to continue to campaign for the UK to remain a member of the EU.

Open means open-hearted, open-minded, forward-looking, mod­ern, green, internationalist and pro-European. We believe Britain is at its best when it is creative, innovative and outward-looking, comfortable in the fast-changing modern world and open to the opportunities and challenges of globalisation and the digital revolution.

Tolerant means diverse, com­passionate and generous. We will always fight injustice and stand up for the underdog, the outsider, the individual, the minority and the vulnerable against the powerful.

United means we will always put the interests of the whole United Kingdom first. We reject the divisions in society, whether between young and old, urban and rural, leave and remain, or between regions and nations. We believe we are stronger - as communities, as a country and as a world - when we work together in our common interest.

If this sounds like you too, join us.
