    Article: Oct 16, 2021

    Following yesterday's shocking and senseless fatal stabbing of Southend West's longserving Conservative MP Sir David Amess, we wish to echo the sentiments in the statement released by Liberal Democrats leader Sir Ed Davey. We also send our deepest sympathy to Sir David's family, friends and colleagues.

  • Layla Moran at Conference 2020

    By Layla Moran

    As Liberal Democrats we are hare holding the Government to account for its foreign policy failure over Afghanistan.

    20 years on from the US-led invasion, the Taliban have swept into Kabul. They seized power illegitimately without the consent of the Afghan people.

    Liberal Democrats showed that we are a force to be reckoned with.

    Last night Liberal Democrats gained a 25% swing in Chesham and Amersham electing our 12th MP, Sarah Green.

    We struck at the heart of the Conservatives' blue wall and took one of their safest seats.

    Liberal Democrats showed that we are a force to be reckoned with. We have a team to match anyone.

    The local election results came in on Friday and though they were mixed overall, there was a lot to celebrate. Wealden is now less blue (and Hailsham in particular a lot more orange!) with Liberal Democrat Steve Murphy being elected by a large margin as the new East Sussex County Councillor for Hailsham Market division, while the town's popular Lib Dem mayor Paul Holbrook comfortably won the District Council by-election in Hailsham North. We were also pleased that Green Party County Council candidate Georgia Taylor was elected in Forest Row & Groomsbridge division (where the Lib Dems did not stand this time) - the first time Wealden has had a Green County Councillor.
