  • Jeremy Corbyn
    Article: Feb 12, 2019
    By Tom Brake MP

    Despite telling Labour conference he would pursue a People's Vote if he could not secure a General Election, Jeremy Corbyn is now offering support for Theresa May's Brexit.



    His support is coming at the cost of people's jobs, our NHS and the environment - he's just missing in action. We've had enough.

    **Coxford By-Election Thursday 14th March 2019**


    Life is hard at the moment. Conservative politicians nationally have made deep cuts to our NHS and other public services. I work for the NHS and I have seen the impact of these cuts first hand.

    The cost of living is high and many of us are struggling just to make ends meet.

  • Demand Better - Air Quality
    Article: Dec 3, 2018
    By Southampton Liberal Democrats

    Prior to the release of Southampton City Council's 'Clean Air' consultation later today, here are the comments submitted by Southampton Liberal Democrats to the consultation:

    The Southampton City Council (SCC) Plans for a Class B Clean Air Zone are rather timid. As currently presented, they are little more than a 'minimum viable product', which seeks only to meet basic legal requirements, and little more. This despite many leading health and research organisations stating that there are no safe limits for air pollution.

  • Southampton votes to REMAIN_Channel 4/Survation poll
    Article: Nov 7, 2018
    By Southampton Liberal Democrats

    Recent polling indicates that if given the opportunity, Southampton would vote to continue Britain's membership of the European Union.

    A study conducted by Survation, the results of which were broadcast on Channel 4 this week, found that 105 council areas that voted to leave the EU in 2016 would now instead back Remain - including Southampton.

    These findings are broadly in line with previous research published in August this year by campaign groups Best for Britain and Hope Not Hate, which reported an 11% drop in the city in support for leaving the EU.

  • Cable, Barnier et al
    Article: Oct 26, 2018
    By Simone Van Beek

    The Lib Dems, SNP, Plaid Cymru and Greens are working together, alongside rebels from Labour and the Conservatives, to fight Brexit. Vince Cable pressed Barnier on the need for the EU to make contingency plans for a People's Vote and to protect EU and UK citizens rights in the event of a no deal Brexit.
