    The Liberal Democrat leadership candidates Tim Farron and Norman Lamb have joined forces to launch the party's campaign to protect the Human Rights Act.

    Before the election, the Liberal Democrats warned that if the Conservatives won a majority they would scrap the Human Rights Act.

    Now the Conservatives have set out plans to abolish the Human Rights Act in the first 100 days of this Parliament.

  • As the Membership Development Officer and Chair of the Tring Branch of the West Herts Liberal Democrats I warmly welcome the new members who have joined our Party over the last few days.

    In 2010, we Liberal Democrats, at a time of unprecedented financial instability recognised that the UK could not withstand both the worst banking crash ever and a simultaneous political crisis. We did not hesitate to go into coalition with the Conservatives and thereby gave the UK five years of stability. This has enabled us to make significant progress in correcting the financial imbalance and tackling the deficits.
