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'm running to be Leader of the Liberal Democrats - but your choice could be about far more than simply who leads our Party.

    The tectonic plates of British Politics are shifting, and its the most volatile I have seen it in my lifetime. With the Liberal Democrats on 20% in the polls, two main Parties crumbling from the inside, and a re-alignment of political allegiances across the country, we have a golden opportunity to cement our place as the leading force of Remain.

    This month is Pride month. This year, June is also 50 years on from the pivotal Stonewall riots. We've come a long way, yet still couples in Northern Ireland are still denied the right to marry the person that they love.

    Internationally, huge progress has been made when it comes to the rights and freedoms of LGBT+ people. Just this summer, Taiwan became the first place in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage while Botswana decriminalised homosexuality in a landmark ruling. But we still have so far to go. In the UK many LGBT+ people still face a grim reality in which discrimination, both socially and in the eyes of the law, blights their everyday reality. The shocking image of a young lesbian couple covered in blood having been subjected to violence on a bus in London this month was a stark reminder that bigotry and prejudice persist.

    I went into politics to put something back into the community I am from and to take our country in a progressive direction. My progressive values lead me to strive to work for a fair and open Britain, which has a strong, mixed market economy, in which everyone can achieve their dreams regardless of their background.
