"South-east Australia is on fire. Why? Because the temperatures of the Earth are increasing. We have been putting things off year after year. We've been raising targets, saying 'oh well, if we do it in the next 20 years …' the moment of crisis has come." Sir David Attenborough. January 2020


THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS ARE LARGELY DEPENDENT UPON OUR MEMBERS FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT - Please help us to campaign for a fairer, open and equal UK.

Fighting Brexit and the three 2019 Elections have been very expensive and have stretched our resources to the limit. In 2020 we have the Police & Crime Commissioner elections and in 2021 the Suffolk County Council election campaign.

These 2019 campaigns would not have been possible without the tremendous support of our members and supporters to whom we are largely dependent. To everyone who donated in 2019, we say a big thank you. Campaigning, however doesn't stop with these elections and we continue to look to our members and supporters to help fund our party. Your donation will help fund our local campaigns.

    Article: Feb 3, 2020

    Johnson government sends EU a message before trade talks begin: stating that Brexit means sovereignty and trumps the economy.

    This will be a blow to UK businesses in the East where the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) modelling had pointed to East Anglia being one of the areas most affected by Brexit, suffering a decrease in GDP in 2030 relative to remaining in the EU," the report says. Evidence* suggests that some local businesses had already voted with their feet, relocating - either partially or fully - to the EU.

    The Brexit divorce agreement renegotiated by Johnson's government with Brussels, and approved by EU national leaders, finally passed its 3rd Reading in the Commons and now needs Royal assent and ratification by the European Parliament before it becomes law and a EU Treaty.
