  • 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.'

    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.

    By Nick Hopkinson in Worthing Herald

    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.

  • Front of libdems at March 20th October
    Article: Oct 30, 2018

    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.

  • Article: Oct 16, 2018

    Brexit is bad for Britain. Join Liberal Democrats at 1200 noon Saturday 20 October near Hyde Park Corner to march for a Peoples' Vote and an Exit from Brexit.

    Brexiteers want to take the country back - we want to take our country forward!

    By Nick Hopkinson in Worthing Herald

    In a letter published last week (11 October) in the Worthing Herald, Liberal Democrat European Group (LDEG) Chair, Nick Hopkinson, argues the chances of a People's Vote and an Exit from Brexit have grown substantially:

    People are changing their minds about Brexit as our political and economic mess worsens. Recent polls show solid leads in favour of a Peoples Vote on any Brexit deal and a slowly growing, but slim, majority for staying in the European Union (EU).
