The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

Devizes Constituency covers the towns of Devizes, Marlborough, Ludgershall and Tidworth, together with the large villages of Bulford, Durrington and Pewsey.

    The Government has dragged the country towards a disaster. While the Tories push for a deal just to avoid a party split, local plans and priorities in Wiltshire are being distorted to favour a Brexit that nobody wants.

    Does anyone believe the Government's promises to end austerity? In the last year, support for local services have continued to be cut with schools and local NHS trusts suffering at every point. Despite clever words, our road budgets are being reduced, police and fire services cut while investment in social and community care is at rock bottom.

    I love living in Devizes having moved here 20 years ago. My son Henry and daughter Verity both went to Wansdyke Primary and Devizes School. Verity is still there, studying hard for her A levels. She wants to be a doctor. Henry is in his second year at Southampton University.

    I work as the Deputy Manager of Townsend Barn Nursery at Poulshot. In 2016 I graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a degree in Early Years Education and Development. It was a struggle working, studying and, as a single parent, making a home for my children but I'm very proud of this achievement.

      The news just broke: turns out that the SNP spent more on the recent Shetland by-election than in the entire EU referendum campaign.

      It seems that the SNP just see Brexit as a golden opportunity to push independence at the price of our country's well-being.

      Shocker

      The party spent £99,000 on the Shetland by-election (of a spending limit of £100,000), compared to just over £90,000 in the 2016 referendum (13% of the limit)

      With her conference speech today Nicola Sturgeon has shown that she has given up on all the people across the UK trying to stop Brexit.

      The momentum is with us. We can win this, if we stick together.

      Instead of helping to unite people across the country, the SNP this week ruled out any co-operation unless they get independence.

      Mike joins us from his current position as Chief Executive of Addaction, a mental health, drug, alcohol and young persons charity, and was previously Assistant Chief Executive at Citizens Advice and through both of which he has extensive experience of managing member-style organisations.

      I am delighted Mike will be taking on this crucial role at such an exciting time for the Liberal Democrats. Mike's experience in senior management and at leading organisations will be hugely valuable to the continuing growth of the party off the back of successive election campaigns which have put the Liberal Democrats back in a strong position in UK politics.
