NewS from Uttlesford Lib Dems

  • 2019 GE Manifesto cover
    Article: Nov 26, 2019

    Following the launch of the Liberal Democrats' Manifesto for the 2019 General Election, local Lib Dem candidate Mike Hibbs and the campaign team spent Saturday morning discussing election issues with shoppers of all political opinions in King Street.

    "People in Saffron Walden are telling us how worried they are about the future of this country. The Conservatives' plans for a hard or even no-deal Brexit are causing immense stress and anxiety - never mind the damaging economic consequences" said Mike. "Our 2019 General Election Manifesto outlines a clear plan to build a brighter future for people and the planet. The first step will be to stop Brexit and use a £50 billion Remain Bonus to invest in public services and tackling inequality."

    Local Lib Dems were in Saffron Walden Market on Saturday talking about the latest Lib Dem position on Brexit. Actually, it's not really news to anyone that the Lib Dems want to stop Brexit - and now Jo Swinson has made it absolutely clear. Lib Dems will campaign in the next General Election to Stop Brexit by revoking Article 50. And if Lib Dems are the outright winners and form a majority government, with Jo Swinson as Prime Minister, the nation's voters will have given us a mandate to do exactly that, Stop Brexit.
    If we win more seats in Parliament but not an outright majority, we will continue to push for a People's Vote on Brexit, with the option to Remain on the ballot paper. And we will campaign to Remain.
    The deal we have now as members of the European Union is far, far better than anything that has even been suggested - never mind agreed. Calling a halt to the Brexit process is one way to take the heat out of the debate and start the process of national reconciliation.
