Our Values - We're about Freedom, Fairness, Trust and a Greener Britain.

Liberalism means a freer Britain, one in which people and communities are able to exercise real political power on their own behalf.

It means a fairer Britain, where people are not excluded by a lack of income or wealth or opportunity.

And it means a greener Britain, where the environment is valued and protected. It means a country built on trust in its citizens.

Tim Farron says this in his New Year speech

'Liberalism is fundamentally optimistic about the desire of people to take control of their own lives. Liberal Democrats believe that means having flourishing communities, with well-resourced, well-targeted and well-managed services that enable people to make choices to improve their lives.

And when those communities are threatened by government cuts that are driven by narrow Tory politics, we need to challenge those behind them and offer something very different'. In 2016 our Wiltshire LibDem Councillors will challenge!

    Ahead of the key vote on Monday on whether the UK should offer sanctuary to 3,000 child refugees, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has written to every MP calling on them to put party politics aside and 'stand up for humanity'.

    The Government last week tried to buy off MPs with a proposal to take up to 3,000 additional people including children from Syria and North Africa over four years, but this will not help one of the thousands of children in Europe today.

  • HM Treasury analysis: the long-term economic impact of EU membership and the alternatives
    Article: Apr 18, 2016

    Commenting on Treasury analysis, which shows that Brexit would cost British households up to £4,300, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron said:

    "The sheer volume of serious and sobering evidence against turning our backs on Europe is overwhelming. The Treasury assessment today, showing a £4,300 cost to families, gives another stark warning about the impact on every household in Britain.

    The Government has agreed a Liberal Democrat amendment to the Housing and Planning Bill, which protects vulnerable tenants from being wrongly evicted.

    Under the Housing & Planning Bill, landlords get faster access to a property if they believe the tenant has abandoned it.

    The successful amendment requires a landlord to get in touch with a third party such as a charity, local authority or individual who has helped to pay the tenant's deposit. If the landlord gets a response that the tenant has not abandoned the property they can't change the locks and reclaim it.

    Article: Apr 12, 2016
    By Tim Farron, Leader of the Liberal Democrats

    The politics of envy helps no-one, but trust in politics does.

    I have no desire to poke around in the Prime Minister's private wealth, and definitely have no desire to force him to relive the pain of losing his father, having to confront that time all over again through the pages of national newspapers.

    It is absolutely essential that British people have full confidence in our leaders, and that when decisions are made and Budgets are written there is not even a slightest hint of a conflict of interest or personal gain. But we are now in a position where people no longer have complete faith in this Government's decisions.
