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

    We've had an unprecedented surge in membership over the past few months, and it has continued until the last few days. Indeed since the General Election in 2015 our membership has grown fourfold.

    We welcome those who made this commitment. Some new members, we know, have left another political party. We welcome these people, but not in a spirit of triumphalism. It isn't easy for people to leave a party, with which they may have been associated for some years. We know this is been happening nationally, with people coming to us both from Labour and the Conservatives.

    Our member Clive Parish was commended for this entry to the party's Liberal Britain vision of life in Britain in 2030.


    Liberal Democrats have a vision - a blueprint for our country in the year 2030. We call it Our Liberal Britain. We see a political landscape transformed, one founded on a more caring and equal society, a stronger and greener economy, and the greatest expansion of democracy since the suffragettes. We see a country where power and wealth is dispersed to the four nations and the regions and to the heart of our communities. We see a country where all people have a fair chance to succeed, whatever their background, and where individuals feel they have a stake in their future and a voice that's heard.

    As reported in The Bucks Herald, funding cuts by the Conservative's mean Buckinghamshire School's are facing funding cuts of £20 million across the county (based on data collated by the National Union of Teachers and The Association of Teachers and Lectures).

    This reduction is because the Conservative's are realocating budgets rather than increasing budgets inline with inflation. This is despite a Conservative manifesto pledge to protect school budgets. More Conservative fiddling with the books means Bucks children will suffer.

    All County Council candidates have received a letter from the Energy Democracy Project (EDP) asking them to support the campaign to get their local authorities to stop investing in fossil fuels.

    The EDP wants to make this an issue in the local elections in May (2017). It is asking candidates to pledge to work towards their council committing to divest its pension fund from fossil fuel companies over 5 years, and reinvest that money in a more financially and socially sustainable future.
