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

    Here's the Boundary Commission review for Buckingham and Aylesbury constituencies.

    Note references to transfer of Edlesborough, Pitstone & Cheddington, Oakfield & Bierton, Watermead, and Wingrave from the Buckingham constituency to the Aylesbury constituency.

    63 The Borough of Milton Keynes is currently divided into two constituencies, both of which have electorates above the 5% limit. Additionally, the local government ward boundaries in the borough have also been modified. In order to reduce the electorates of the two Milton Keynes constituencies it is necessary to cross the boundary between the Borough of Milton Keynes and Buckinghamshire. We therefore propose to include the Wolverton and Stony Stratford wards of the Borough of Milton Keynes in our proposed Buckingham constituency. We consider these two wards the most appropriate to include in a cross-county constituency due to the communication links between the county and the borough. We did investigate whether to include wards from the Bletchley area in the Buckingham constituency, but considered this would be likely to divide the Bletchley area between constituencies

  • More room for MPs. But is it fair on consitituencies

    So, it's confirmed. Voters in the Buckingham constituency will not be able to choose from the full range of candidates from the mainstream parties in this year's General Election.

    For a few days in the run-up to close of nominations on Thursday, April 9th it seemed possible. That after all, we, the local Liberal Democrats, would be able to field a candidate, after we were given very late dispensation from our party hierarchy to break the convention that the main parties do not oppose the Speaker. Buckingham constituency is, of course, the seat held by Mr John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons.

    (Some background: over the past year a growing number of private and public bodies have announced that they are to stop investing in fossil fuels, such as oil and gas. They range from the British Medical Association and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, to Glasgow University and, most recently, the Swedish city of Örebro.)

    It's 3 days and counting to an election no one's heard of.

    On Thursday polls open in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections. And the whole thing has been a disaster from start to finish.

    Someone needs to be held to account. So can you help by sending a message to your local paper?

    Avril is county councillor for Ivinghoe division, and district councillor for Pitstone and Ivinghoe.

    This is her latest report (summer 2012).

    --------

    My faith in Bucks County Council hit another low point when, after not only introducing charges for school transport, they failed to apply the policy correctly causing unnecessary additional stress, anxiety and confusion for parents affected in my division.

    John Bercow MP invited Buckingham constituency Lib Dems chairman Julian Newman, together with other local political figures to the State Opening of Parliament on 9th May, followed by a reception in Speaker's House. I understand that you are the Chairman of the Buckingham Liberal Democrats.

    Article: Mar 21, 2012

    Over 20 million working people will be better off next year after Liberal Democrats in the Coalition Government delivered the biggest ever increase in the income tax personal allowance in the Budget.

    The massive £3.5bn tax cut for working people delivers:

    • The biggest ever single uplift in the tax threshold
    • A personal allowance of £9,205 in April 2013
    • 21 million working people getting an extra £220 tax cut
    • Brings the total tax cut for basic rate tax payers to £550
    • Brings the total number of people lifted out of tax to 2 million.
