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.

    "Prince Philip dedicated his life to our country. We will always be grateful for his amazing service, not least the powerful legacy he leaves to millions of young people who have taken part in his unique Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

    "His quiet and steadfast counsel and support of The Queen, is perhaps his greatest if unquantifiable contribution to our nation's history.

    "At this sad time for millions, we should never forget Prince Philip was a much-loved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. So our thoughts must be with the whole Royal Family, but in particular with The Queen at this difficult time."

    As the Black Lives Matter protests highlighted so powerfully, too many people's lives both in the UK and across the world are blighted by discrimination, inequality and injustice. It is unacceptable.

    There is still so much to do to tackle racial injustice in our country.

    Black and Asian children are more than twice as likely to grow up in persistent poverty as White children. Gypsy, Roma and Traveller, Black Caribbean and mixed-race children are significantly more likely to be excluded from school than other pupils.

    At sundown tonight, Jewish communities in the UK and around the world will mark the beginning of Passover, the eight-day festival commemorating the liberation of the Israelites after 400 years of slavery in ancient Egypt.

    The story of the Exodus has inspired generations; it's a story of hope and triumph. It shows us what's possible when we hold tight to faith in the midst of darkness and uncertainty. This is a message that's relevant, even today.

    The killing of Sarah Everard shocked the nation. She was described by family and friends as "bright and beautiful", "kind and thoughtful" and caring and dependable". My thoughts have been with Sarah's family ever since we heard she was missing, and my heart still goes out to them.

    Sarah's death has jolted our society into finally taking violence against women seriously. At the Spring Conference, I delivered a statement reaffirming the Liberal Democrat's commitment to ending violence perpetrated by men and the misogynistic culture allowing it to manifest. While the killing of a woman by a stranger is particularly awful and relatively rare - violence against women and girls is not. On average a woman is killed in the UK every three days. Most of them are killed by their partner or their ex. Male violence has become a normal part of life in the UK. No longer.
