General Election Count 2019

Welcome to Stockton Liberal Democrats

This is the website for the Liberal Democrats based in Stockton-on-Tees covering the Stockton North and Stockton South constituencies. Since the referendum in 2016 we've had a lot of new members join. People who are unhappy with the outcome and the way it was won. People who want to join the Fightback to protect human rights and civil liberties, to protect the NHS, to reform our broken electoral system and to provide a coherent opposition to the Hard Brexit Conservative government.

This website gives you the opportunity to find out more about Lib Dem parliamentary candidates and councillors and our policies and news. We would also love to hear from you and get you involved in campaigning for the party.

Why You Should Join The Lib Dems

Our constitution starts with these words... "The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity." We're not here to support the privileged or to implement the policies of the trade unions.

We are internationalists who believe in the UK's membership of the European Union and who want to treat immigrants as positively as the British would hope to be treated if we moved abroad. If that sounds like the sort of party you would like to be a member of, then you can join as a member for as little as £12 a year.

    Here's what our peers got up to this week.

    Monday 22nd February

    Each day in the Lords begins with four oral questions to the Government on different topics. Dee Doocey took the Government to task for often taking many weeks, or even months, to answer Written Questions submitted by peers. They are a critical tool for parliamentarians, she said, and government departments are working in a way that is detrimental for others trying to hold ministers to account.

    25 years ago our former leader Paddy Ashdown laid out the stakes for Britain's position in the world:

    Britain's role as the bulwark against tyranny in two wars this century was not a product of isolationism. It was the natural response of a nation used to engaging in the world and certain about its role as a European power.

    Millions of people across the country have made untold sacrifices in the past year.

    Boris Johnson must not squander the months of sacrifice by millions of people and businesses across the country

    People have been isolated from their families, hundreds of thousands of businesses have been shuttered and our precious freedoms have been curtailed.

    During this pandemic, carers have stepped up in very difficult circumstances to look after elderly, disabled and vulnerable people.

    Carer's Allowance is just £67 a week. It's just not nearly enough.

    Unpaid carers in particular are doing a remarkable and important job looking after our loved ones.

    But many carers are facing extreme financial hardship.

    Just like with Black History Month (October) or Disability History Month (which runs from November into December), it's typically filled with events (check ours out here) and discussion. LGBT+ History Month reminds us of the progress we've made, but also warns us about the injustices that we have only recently escaped - and injustices that are still with us.
