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

    Article: Feb 27, 2017

    The Lib Derm peers were excellent in the Article 50 debate last week.

    This was the contribution of Buckingham party member Jonathan Marks, Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames.

    Jonathan is Shadow Lord Chancellor and Shadow Secretary of State for Justice

    He concentrated his remarks on the effect on international relations and pointed out the absurdity of the Government's position on the European Court of Justice. He described what he called the Government's two "unrealistic and obsessive illusions" on immigration and ECJ.

    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.

  • Adam Carter
    Article: Feb 4, 2017

    Well, we do!

    With a 38% swing from Labour in Brinsworth in Rotherham, on Thursday Dr. Adam Carter won a council by-election. This is an area that voted leave (by 69%). It will also the first time there will be a Lib Dem Councillor on the Rotherham Council.

    Our favourite quote of the week from a someone who voted leave: I voted for what I thought was right, not for the far right.

    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.

    The deeper we go into December, the more likely people are to have social events that drive out politics.
    And in such a year as this, it is understandable that people want to lighten up. And there was the rival attraction of the Aylesbury party's social evening in a pub just down the road.
    That said, it was very good to see new members turn up to our monthly executive meeting last night and find out about the more formal work we do behind the scenes.
  • More room for MPs. But is it fair on consitituencies
    Article: Nov 28, 2016
    By David Frearson

    Do you feel your point of view is not being heard? Or perhaps there is something important happening in your life and no-one is is taking you seriously?

    Every constituent has the right to contact their MP about issues that are important to them. Your MP must also make due considerations and respond as appropriate. In some cases they may invite you to meet with them to discuss your concerns.

    This in The Times, Monday Nov 28th. This part is freely accessible online, the rest of the article is behind the paywall.

    If true, it could speed up this chronically delayed project.

    NB. It is not "Philip Hammond's planned train route". All he is is the Chancellor who has directed funds to a long established programme. It has all-party support from the councils along the line.

  • East West Rail Map
    Article: Nov 23, 2016

    We applaud Chancellor Philip Hammond's support for the East West Rail project which he announced in today's Autumn Statement.

    His pledged £100 million to ensure the project's delivery. Last year the section between Oxford and Aylesbury and Milton Keynes was pushed back until possibly the end of 2024 following a review, having originally been scheduled for completion in 2017.
