  • Lakenham #INtogether
    Article: May 29, 2016

    Over the past week, Liberal Democrats from across Norwich have been out and about, knocking on doors and speaking with residents about the referendum

    What has been great is that many of these faces are new - people who have never been out campaigning before.

    Can you join us this week?

    Details of when we will be out campaigning can be found on our events page. Please check back often as we are constantly adding new sessions.

  • Referendum campaigning UEA
    Article: May 22, 2016

    With a month to go until one of the most significant decisions of our generation, Liberal Democrats in Norwich are campaigning for Britain to remain part of the European Union.

    Party members have been active in cross-party local groups as well as in the Lib Dem pro-European campaign. Our student society at the UEA have been registering students to vote, and reminding them to apply for a postal or proxy vote if they are likely to be out of the country or at events such as Glastonbury.

    Commenting on the Queen's Speech, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron said:

    "Only one year in and this Conservative majority is running out of steam.

    "30 announcements, but 28 have been made before. Weekend prisoners, announced by a weakened Government.

    "The Queen's Speech is a stop-gap to give the warring factions of the Tory party a couple of day's respite from the referendum. It does nothing to address the key issues at stake.

    "This country's challenges on education, housing, investment, skills, and the environment are either ignored, or offered nothing more than empty rhetoric.

    "The Conservatives are continuing their dogmatic assault on civil liberties with the ongoing threat of the snooper's charter and an obsession to tear up the human rights act. We will fight them every step of the way.

    "There are enough re-runs on BBC without having to get the Queen to do her own."

  • Cllr David Rendel
    Article: May 17, 2016

    Paying tribute to David Rendel, former Liberal Democrat MP for Newbury who passed away last night, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:

    "I am hugely saddened by the loss of David Rendel. He was a committed, selfless individual who I will remember particularly for his unyielding campaigning over so many years. I will miss him.

    By James Wright

    With the local elections now firmly behind us, we are turning the focus of our campaigning towards ensuring that the UK remains in the European Union when we vote in the Referendum on June 23rd.

    Last week Tim Farron made the positive, progressive, liberal case for Britain to remain within the European Union and I now need your help in order to put that case here in Norwich.

    So much of the debate around Europe has been about financial projections, trading complex cost benefit analyses about what will happen if we stay or leave. And fascinating though that all is, my hunch is that it might not, on its own, clinch the right result.

    Because there is much more to this Referendum than the economy, crucial though that is.

    Commenting ahead of the publication of reformed EU refugee laws, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said

    "Any proposals to strengthen Dublin regulations are welcome but do not alone do enough to confront the humanitarian crisis in Europe.

    "It will take time to make Dublin more effective and efficient and this is something we simply don't have. That is why the PM must act now and offer safety to 3,000 vulnerable refugee children who are unaccompanied in Europe. Many Conservative MPs are u-turning on their vote against this last week, and it is time for the PM to join them."
