    Liberal Democrats are fighting to ensure that no-one gets forgotten as this crisis continues.

    Last week, the Government set out a package of financial measures to support UK workers, highlighting just how threatening coronavirus is to our economy and our society.

    As soon as these measures were announced, Liberal Democrats stated our concerns that far too little was being provided to help the self-employed through this crisis. Days later, and no new support has been announced by the Government.

    Liberal Democrats secure win for road safety!

    Thanks to the hard work of the Gloucestershire Liberal Democrat group on the County Council, an extra £50,000 has been secured for a Traffic Regulation Order fund designed to cut through the bureaucracy preventing vital road safety schemes,

    Nigel Adcock, Liberal Democrat candidate in the Winchcombe and Woodmancote byelection, said "I'm delighted that the Lib Dem group were able to win funding for road safety schemes across the county. We hear of near misses on our roads every day - it's critical we fund local priorities and cut through the red tape holding back schemes that can save lives."

    Article: Dec 8, 2019

    As suggested by leading former Conservatives ministers like John Major, Michael Heseltine and Ken Clark moderate Tories should vote tactically in seats like Tewkesbury to prevent a majority Boris Government. And with Labour and Green supporters lending us their votes anything could happen.

    The Lib Dems are the natural challengers in Tewkesbury: see 2019 local election results chart, and in addition Labour have no district councillors in the Constituency to the Lib Dems 10. Don't forget in 2010the Lib Dems polled over 19 000 votes!

  • Tory empty chair
    Article: Dec 4, 2019

    Tory Laurence Roberston did not attend the election hustings on 3rd Dec at St Michael's Parish ChurchBishop's Cleeve. The reaction to the empty chair was one of incredulity among the 200 or so people present.

    Martin Griffiths acting Chair of Tewkesbury for Europe says 'I thought it showed extraordinary contempt that Lawrence Roberson didn't turn up to his own hustings. The other candidates debated with considerable passion while also demonstrating agreement on the importence of the fight against climate change and the dangers of brexit. It seems that Robertson or at least a Tory representative were unprepared to face scrutiny of their policies'.

  • Michael Heseltine
    Article: Dec 1, 2019

    Former Tory ministers and MPs like Michael Heseltine, Ken Clarke, Matthew Parris and David Gauke suggest moderate, traditional Conservatives should vote Lib Dem to avoid a majority Tory Government led by Boris Johnson with the spectre of a no-deal Brexit still very real in 12 months time.

    We hope they will follow this advice in Tewkesbury constituency as the Lib Dems are the clear challengers to the Boris supporting Tory candidate!
