THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS ARE LARGELY DEPENDENT UPON OUR MEMBERS FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT - Please help us to campaign for a fairer, open and equal UK. Please donate to East Suffolk Liberal Democrats. Your donation will help fund our general election campaigns.

Donations will also help us to undertake activities such as running this website, campaigning in local and national elections, getting our message across on social media and printing Focus leaflets. A General Election may be imminent and we need every pound you can spare to fight the Brexit Government who are set to take us to the cliff edge and a No Deal exit from our partnership with the Europe Union.

The Party has successfully campaigned for the local District and European Parliament elections gaining hundreds of seats across the country. This would not have been possible without the tremendous support of our members and supporters to whom we are largely dependent upon for funds. The more funds that we have available, the more effective we can be.

  • Jo Swinson quote
    Article: Oct 18, 2019

    Boris Johnson announced yesterday that he has agreed a Brexit deal with the EU. But the fight to stop Brexit is far from over. If the Johnson deal passes the UK is heading for 'fairly hard' Brexit.

    Lib Dem Leader Jo Swinson MP said, The proposed deal will be bad for our economy, bad for our public services and bad for environmental standards. Just like every version of Brexit, this is a bad deal. Johnson's deal is nowhere near as good as the deal we have now, as a member of the EU. That is why I am more determined than ever to stop Brexit. That is why Liberal Democrats will be arguing that any deal should go back to the public in a People's Vote.

    Sizewell C

    East Suffolk Lib Dems response to Stage 4 Consultation

    The local East Suffolk party which covers the area of the East Suffolk District Council has submitted its response to EDF Energy on what is expected to be the final stage of the Sizewell C consultation process.

    East Suffolk Liberal Democrats (ESDL) has made clear its opposition to the proposal to construct a new nuclear power station at Sizewell via EDF's previous consultations.
