    The Party has considered carefully and has taken representations from the Campaign.

    The party's found that a technical breach had occurred in relation to the specific consents relating to these Cookies.

    What are the Liberal Democrats calling for?

    We're calling on the Government to grant indefinite leave to remain in the UK - the right to stay - to all foreign nationals currently working in the NHS and social care, and their families.

    How many people from other countries work in the NHS and social care?

    Throughout this crisis, the Government's communications have been an utter disaster.

    Yet more mistakes reveal how necessary it is for an inquiry to be launched now

    To announce a regional lockdown of millions of people not only just hours before it's enforced, but with no clarity on the new rules coming into place, is beyond comprehension.

    On behalf of the Liberal Democrats, I would like to send best wishes to all Muslims celebrating Eid al-Adha.

    Eid al-Adha commemorates the Prophet Ibrahim's test of faith. It also marks the end of Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.

    I hope that all of us will take this opportunity to reflect on those values of selflessness, charity and community which are at the heart of Islam

    Let's be honest with ourselves - we're in a tough spot. Our average polling figure currently stands at 8%, a far cry from the late teens or early 20s we previously enjoyed as recently as last year.

    I won Oxford West & Abingdon from the ground up. Nobody knows the potential of Liberal Democrat activists like I do.

    Postal Votes

    Postal votes have gone to print on the 27th July 2020. The initial run was around 5,000 voters. These will be sent to Royal Mail on the 29th July 2020.

    We expect paper ballots to land between the 30th July and the 2nd August in the UK. We expect this to take up to the 14th August for non-UK postal ballots.

    In our Democracy the Prime Minister and Government are accountable to Parliament, not the other way round, and yet Boris Johnson has been systematically unpicking the vital checks and balances which moderate his powers. Without these, it is a slippery slope towards an elective dictatorship.

    Boris Johnson's attempt to prorogue Parliament was ruled 'unlawful'.

The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.

Open means open-hearted, open-minded, forward-looking, modern, green, internationalist and pro-European. We believe Britain is at its best when it is creative, innovative and outward-looking, comfortable in the fast-changing modern world and open to the opportunities and challenges of globalisation and the digital revolution.

Tolerant means diverse, compassionate and generous. We will always fight injustice and stand up for the underdog, the outsider, the individual, the minority and the vulnerable against the powerful.

United means we will always put the interests of the whole United Kingdom first. We reject the divisions in society, whether between young and old, urban and rural, leave and remain, or between regions and nations. We believe we are stronger - as communities, as a country and as a world - when we work together in our common interest.

If this sounds like you too, join us.
