Lib Dems Winning Here

Welcome to the website of the Buckingham Constituency Liberal Democrats

The Liberal Democrats remain a proudly pro-European party. We are the only main party to say this unequivocally.

Liberal Democrats believe that the British people should have their say on the final Brexit deal in a referendum. Voting for a departure is not the same as voting for a destination. British people have a right to have their say on whether the deal they are offered is the right one for them, their families, their communities and our country.

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives

    Brexit continues to dominate the political agenda as we progress into 2018. And there are signs that our campaign is bearing fruit, with, according to the latest polls, a majority now supporting our call for a second referendum.

    But there are other issues and concerns to consider. In January I (chairman Gareth Davies) wrote to the Bucks Herald (see letter below) about the county's pension fund's investment in fossil fuels. You may have your own thoughts about whether divesting from fossil fuels is better than keeping those holdings and trying to influence oil companies as shareholders, but I and other members believe the time has now come to take a firm stand on the issue of funding the continuing extraction of coal, gas and oil if there is to be any possibility of keeping the rise in temperatures below 2°C, let alone the hoped-for 1.5°C.

    By Gareth Davies, party chairman

    The government is to allow Britain's public-sector pension schemes to dump their shares in oil, gas and coal companies, as part of the fight against climate change.

    This affects us in Buckinghamshire, where the Lib Dems have been campaigning for several years to persuade the county council, which administers pensions investments on behalf of employers across the country, to get rid of its shares in fossil fuels.

    ( 6 June, 2017)

    We are sorry there is no Lib Dem candidate in the Buckingham constituency, and that once again electors here have had no proper choice of possible MP, unlike every other seat in the UK.

    We had established with our national party that we had the right to stand a candidate to oppose Mr Speaker, and had in fact appointed one in late April this year. However she was persuaded to stand down by party officials.

    People lose council seats. That's politics.

    You accept it, and you move on.

    That's what Avril Davies (left) and her team will do in the Ivinghoe division of Bucks County Council. Avril lost the seat by 214 votes to the Conservative in the elections on May 4 after 26 continuous years as a LibDem councillor.

    Fantastic fossils will be on display at College Lake on the first weekend in April. Fossils from the Jurassic beds excavated at College Lake, designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, are normally in storage at the Bucks County Museum Resource Centre at Halton. I have visited the resource centre twice recently as a member of the Select Committee for Transport, Environment and Communities which maintains an overview of the Museum Trust.
