    Liberal Democrats voted on Saturday to launch an internal review that will set out roadmaps to rejoining EU agencies such as the Customs Union and Single Market, with a view to membership of the European Union in future. It comes in the wake of the devastating impact of Boris Johnson's trade deal, which has left millions of British businesses and workers worse off.

    On Friday 8pm tonight, there's a constitutional amendment to change the role of the Party's Vice-President (BAME). The motion would make the Vice-President (BAME) be elected by the entire Party membership.

    LDCRE have heard some concerns that there should be more detailed discussion on how the role is elected, to ensure it's both democratic but also representative. We back the call for democratic legitimacy.

    However we feel there should be further consultation with Party members. Detailed proposals with pro's and con's should be set out on how we can safeguard minority views while ensuring a democratic and feasible election process.

    Hi - it seems probable that if you have just arrived on the GLD website today, it is because you clicked on the website link on the conference GLD Booth!?

    In a comprehensive on-line survey, we asked residents what mattered most to them and how satisfied they were with Buckinghamshire Council and the services it provides.

    We heard from residents across the constituency including people from the Chilterns, the Chalfonts and Missenden. What we learnt is that local people, regardless of location and political opinion expect far more from Buckinghamshire Council in terms of the services they provide.

    The Testimonies are powerful:

    "Lots of women I know have taken on the majority of the home schooling and housework as well as working. In our friendship group, it's about 80 per cent women that have taken it on. It's been a huge step back for women. Most of the women I know have to get up early to work and work late in the evening" Racheal from Farnham Royal.

    The system is flawed …..but you can still make your vote matter

    As every parent knows, one of the first things children learn to say is "It's not fair". Research shows that a sense of fairness is innate in very small children. It is this essential sense of fairness that often guides us in seeking to make good decisions.

    Liberal Democrats have played a major part in the Covid response across our towns and villages.

    They have recruited volunteers to performs errands for vulnerable people during the lockdowns, supported people in care homes and obtained PCs for schools.

    Burnham Health Centre is able to vaccinate 1300 people on a Saturday from Dorney across to Iver. Volunteers have stood in the hail and snow, and occasion sun, to manage the car park, and help the flow of patients through the whole process.
