General Election Count 2019

Welcome to Stockton-on-Tees 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, or as a student from just £1 a year. Click here to join

    As leadership voting opened this week POLITICO sent both contenders 'quick-fire' questions including " Should the UK rejoin the EU?"

    On that Ed replied: "I'll always believe our best place is in the EU, but our job now is to convince the country of that. If the opportunity ever arises for us to rejoin, and we can take the public with us, I'll be at the frontline of that fight."

    What are the Liberal Democrats calling for?

    We're calling on the Government to grant indefinite leave to remain in the UK - the right to stay - to all foreign nationals currently working in the NHS and social care, and their families.

    How many people from other countries work in the NHS and social care?

    Throughout this crisis, the Government's communications have been an utter disaster.

    Yet more mistakes reveal how necessary it is for an inquiry to be launched now

    To announce a regional lockdown of millions of people not only just hours before it's enforced, but with no clarity on the new rules coming into place, is beyond comprehension.

    On behalf of the Liberal Democrats, I would like to send best wishes to all Muslims celebrating Eid al-Adha.

    Eid al-Adha commemorates the Prophet Ibrahim's test of faith. It also marks the end of Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.

    I hope that all of us will take this opportunity to reflect on those values of selflessness, charity and community which are at the heart of Islam

    Let's be honest with ourselves - we're in a tough spot. Our average polling figure currently stands at 8%, a far cry from the late teens or early 20s we previously enjoyed as recently as last year.

    I won Oxford West & Abingdon from the ground up. Nobody knows the potential of Liberal Democrat activists like I do.
