    I love this party.

    I was just 17 when I became a Liberal Democrat. Honestly, if you'd have told me that I'd one day get the chance to write this post as the party's new leader I wouldn't have believed you.

    The first thing I want to do is say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in this election. But special thanks must go to my good friend Ed Davey.

    Taxing Land, Not Investment

    The Liberal Democrats have today published a comprehensive blueprint for replacing the broken business rates system. This would cut business rates for some retaillers by 20% and has the potential to benefit businesses in Ilkeston and Long Eaton town centres as well as across the rest of the borough.

    Hey, being a Lib Dem isn't only about delivering leaflets and knocking on doors (and winning the odd seat here and there!)

    There is a social side to it all too, so it was great to have a bit of a get together tonight at Trent Lock, which was attended by both the "usual suspects" and a few other members too. A couple of hours of talk on politics, history, geography, and generally putting the world to rights!

    Article: Jun 19, 2019

    Hopefully you will have received the borough council's newsletter, EBC today. It's an "election special", with details of all the results of the elections of May 2nd.
    Well, we hope you noticed that there is now one of the portraits which is surrounded not in blue or red, but in yellow!

    Robert Mee, councillor for West Hallam & Dale Abbey, is our first councillor in the borough since 2011. He is the only Lib Dem on the Council, but will be working not only to ensure that the residents of West Hallam, Dale Abbey and Stanley Common are well represented, but also to push a liberal agenda wherever he can.

    I'm running to be Leader of the Liberal Democrats - but your choice could be about far more than simply who leads our Party.

    The tectonic plates of British Politics are shifting, and its the most volatile I have seen it in my lifetime. With the Liberal Democrats on 20% in the polls, two main Parties crumbling from the inside, and a re-alignment of political allegiances across the country, we have a golden opportunity to cement our place as the leading force of Remain.

    Over the past three years, I have been proud to help lead the calls for a People's Vote in the belief that the challenge of Brexit required not only the strong leadership provided by the Liberal Democrats but also for us to work together with people of all parties and none.

    I never imagined that I would be able to say that Michael Heseltine and Alastair Campbell voted the same way as me, but our message to stop Brexit brought together voters from all corners of our politics.

    I went into politics to put something back into the community I am from and to take our country in a progressive direction. My progressive values lead me to strive to work for a fair and open Britain, which has a strong, mixed market economy, in which everyone can achieve their dreams regardless of their background.
