And the result is in, WE WON!

Congratulations Sarah Olney, well done Lib Dem Team.

Just last year Nick Clegg said, ‘Fear and grievance have won, Liberalism has lost but it is more precious than ever and we must keep fighting for it….our party will come back, our party will win again’…And of course he was right then and now.

This is just the start, this battle is won… yet the movement for Liberalism, for the vision we have is just commencing and we need all of you to help in this fight.

In the words of our latest MP, ‘We will not let intolerance, division and fear win’.

The Lib Dem Plan for Britain in Europe

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 remain a proudly pro-European party. Following the referendum, we are setting out clear answers to some of the big questions and what we think should happen next.
