    Article: Aug 14, 2018

    Wealden LibDems joined with Tunbridge Wells LibDems to campaign for a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal in Tunbridge Wells centre on Saturday.

    There was great support for the pro-EU stall with a good group of volunteers talking to passers-by and plenty of lively debate about a possible Brexit deal, or no deal, or the option to stay in! People were reminded that it's not too late to cancel Brexit altogether and get out of the current impasse and give political space to address other pressing issues on the NHS, housing and local government cuts.

    Wealden Libdem Alan Whittaker says

    Two of correspondents of the Sussex Express last week (July 27 2018), Ukippers both of them, demonstrated why this nation of ours is facing a perilous nine months.

    Ex-county councilor, Laurence Keeley, is right in saying the LibDems want to remain in the EU, but so wrong in saying Tory cuts to council services are caused by our membership of that body, the richest democratic market in the world. He seems to have forgotten ex-Chancellor Osborne's austerity policy.

    On Saturday, June 23rd 2018, there will be an anti-Brexit march calling for a vote on the final deal in London.

  • Wera Hobhouse
    Article: Jun 16, 2018

    A private member's Bill aimed at protecting an individual's dignity from intrusive photographs has been taken to the verge of becoming law by the Liberal Democrats, and would have completed its legislative passage but for an outrageous objection by a Conservative MP.

    Liberal Democrat Wera Hobhouse, who was elected to the House of Commons last year, proposed a private member's Bill that would ban the practice of 'upskirting' - taking photos with a selfie stick under a person's skirt - and other forms of photography under a person's clothes without their permission.

    "Last week a number of my parliamentary colleagues, including Jon Cruddas, Clive Lewis and Ruth Lister, wrote an open letter to the party calling for the three members to be reinstated and for progressive alliance arrangements of this sort to be allowed to stop the Tories.
