  • David Chalmers LDEG Chair 2019-21
    Article: Mar 26, 2019

    David Chalmers, the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary spokesperson for Torridge and West Devon, has been elected chair of the Liberal Democrat European Group, which influences the party's European policy and campaigns.

    Chalmers said: 'Teresa May's disgraceful attack on MPs and Parliament, which was reminiscent of a dictator in the mould of Hugo Chavez, was a disgraceful attempt to stir up hatred seldom if ever seen before by a British Prime Minister. She and her Brexit have become a threat to the reputation of our institutions, the safety of MPs and our traditional liberal approach to public debate. I vow to continue the fight to keep the UK in the European Union and ensure the Group promotes and protects liberal and European values.'

    At the 21st Century Europe event, we kickstart a debate that has the ambition to be fresh, sincere, passionate, and intelligent.

    By Liberal Democrat European Group

    The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has myopically decided to support May's miserable Brexit Agreement with the European Union (EU). In so doing they have opted to sacrifice longer-term certainty for the seeming short-term certainty of a deal which at best delays a regulatory cliff-edge for just two years, and holds out the promise of trade deals inferior to what we enjoy now as a member of the EU.

    Liberal Democrat European Group (LDEG) Chair, Nick Hopkinson, wrote again to his local newspaper arguing Theresa May's deal is bad for Britain and demanding a People's Vote.

    If you haven't already done so, please write to your MP. If you are pressed for time, it takes only a minute by clicking on https://www.notbuyingit.uk It's even more powerful if you can refer your MP to a letter you have had published recently in the local media.

    In July 2016, in the aftermath of the referendum, the Liberal Democrats were a lone voice calling for a final say on whatever deal was done on Brexit.

    Last week, an estimated 700,000 people marched on the streets of London, calling for a people's vote on Brexit.

    That makes it the biggest protest since the Iraq War.
