Welcome to Liberal Democrat European Group

LDEG is a forum for Lib Dem Members to discuss and campaign on European issues.

We provide campaign support for members, and argue that Britain is stronger and better off in the EU.

LDEG membership is open to all members of the Liberal Democrat Party and of its European allies.

    In 2 weeks most of the UK has a chance to vote in an election.

    The 2017 elections are a national opportunity to push back against hard Brexit. Unlike so much else that supporters and opponents of Brexit can cite as evidence of public support for their side, the success or failure of each side is measurable, public and real.

    As Mrs. May was busy signing her Article 50 letter to Donald Tusk, which will have the effect of revoking my citizenship of the European Union, I was on a business trip to Indonesia. On returning to Frankfurt airport I went through passport control using the accustomed short queue labelled EU/EEA/CH. This made me conscious of the fact that in two years time I will have to use the longer queue together with my American, Chinese and Indonesian friends. That is unless the signs are changed. However there is not sufficient space on those signs to add a simple "/UK" sticker, so it will involve completely changing the signs at considerable expense. As a local taxpayer I can hardly approve of such expenditure, even if it does cause me personally some inconvenience. So it is probably the long queue in future.
