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.

    Brexit continues to cause damage to the economy

    Every day that passes since the 2016 Referendum, the UK is hit by its consequential impact, locally, nationally and internationally. Brexiteers can continue to claim that the decision to Leave has had nil impact on the country's economy and jobs but the evidence is clear, the UK is no longer the welcoming, open nation and individuals are taking action to protect their lives, their businesses and investments and the future of their families. This reckless Brexit government are hellbent on dragging us out into the cold just as the impact of Johnson's fellow traveller Trump's trade war begins to bite and recessions loom. There is only one way to stop the damaging uncertainty and that is to STOP BREXIT and Revoke Article 50. We are still only at stage one in what will continue to be an endless war of words and bitter negotiations for years to come. For everyone's sake. Liberal Democrats are saying - end this mess now and REMAIN in the EU with the best Deal we have ever had.

    United Against Crime - the Liberal Democrats Crime and Policing Policy

    A Partnership Approach to building Communities that are Safe and Feel Safe

    By GARY KITCHING - October 4th 2019

    After 9 years of Conservative Government our public services are failing. Effective public services are critical for communities to grow and prosper. They are essential part of the community partnership that will support an environment where people are well educated, properly supported and are safe and feel safe. Within this partnership a key player is Police Service whose primary missions are the promotion of community safety and protecting the vulnerable.
