    • Vince Cable in Brighton 2018
      Article: Dec 12, 2018

      Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said: "Having seen the Conservative backbenches will not support her deal, the prime minister must change course.

      "Her deal is doomed to defeat in the Commons, so she should show real leadership by putting this question back to the public in a People's Vote," he said.

      "The EU is clear that there is no more negotiating to do, so it's this deal or no Brexit.

      "That is the choice on which every voter should now have a final say - and Liberal Democrats will campaign vigorously for the UK to remain a full member of the EU."

    • Kay-Berry
      Article: Dec 4, 2018

      Lib Dem Councillor Kay Berry has been finding out the answers for Tewkesbury Borough.

      There has been a lot of publicity in the press recently about recycling in Gloucester city being sent to landfill so we decided to check on what is happening to the recycling from Tewkesbury Borough Council. Councillor Kay Berry said "I am pleased to report that none of it is going to landfill and I received the following information from council officers."
      ● All blue bin recycling is collected together in one large vehicle and taken to a sorting facility at Avonmouth where it is sorted into different types of materials.

    • Vince Cable in Brighton 2018
      Article: Nov 27, 2018

      The whole process of Brexit has been fraught with difficulties and problems, as we feared. The future consequences of the Brexit deal are a continuing cause of serious concern.

      That's why we think the British people need the final say on any Brexit deal - and if it's not right for you & your family, you should have the chance to reject it and stay in Europe. Please sign the petition to support our campaign for that vote. You can do that here: libdems.org.uk/exit-brexit
      Together, we will take the fight to this Conservative Brexit Government and we stand a real chance of exiting from Brexit.

      Article: Oct 13, 2018

      With only a few weeks of negotiating time left the Conservatives are continuing to argue with themselves over Brexit and have failed to agree on a workable orderly exit.

      Regardless of how you voted in the EU Referendum, it is clear to see that the Government is out of its depth and so consumed by Brexit that it is failing to provide the 'strong and stable' leadership they promised during the General Election.
