The North Hertfordshire Liberal Democrats

We are the champions for liberal values across the North Herts district. Locally, we will use our position on the council to deliver meaningful and progressive change on behalf of residents. Nationally, we want to build a fairer society, but also keep the economy strong and secure. Internationally we want the UK to remain part of Europe, and to lead the response to global challenges like climate change. If you share our values and objectives, please give us your support.

    The economic debate in this election has been between two fantasies. Between Conservative fantasies of the days of empire or Labour fantasies of failed '70s socialism. Both Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn will only take our country backwards.

    We have always been fierce advocates for human rights. We believe in a Britain where nobody has to fear discrimination. A Liberal Democrat government will put equality at the heart of society and the workplace.

    We've announced a huge raft of policies on rights and equalities. They are our blueprint for a government that respects the rights of the individual. This will be our foundation for a society where dignity, privacy and equality are valued.

    It is also an important opportunity. We must bring attention to the continued injustices and inequalities faced by trans people today

    The week will culminate in the Trans Day of Remembrance. This is a day to honour those who have either been killed or have taken their own lives as a result of transphobia. As we pause to we remember the lives lost, we are reminded that transphobia is never funny or trivial. It can be fatal.

    The UK is in a knife crime epidemic, but successive Governments have taken the wrong approach to dealing with it.

    For 25 years, Conservative and Labour Governments have been competing to seem tough on crime, without doing enough to actually prevent it.

    "Liberal Democrats will build a brighter future for young people by investing £500 million a year in youth services and taking a public health approach to youth violence."

    Lib Dem and Remainer social media is aflutter today with discussions of the Canterbury situation.

    Some people argue with great passion that we should be standing aside for Labour's candidate Rosie Duffield. I know Rosie and she is a good person. I think she would be a much better fit in the Liberal Democrats, but she has chosen to stay in Labour. I understand people's instinctive desire to give her a clear run at her seat in the name of Remain.

    Jo Swinson would make a better Prime Minister than either Johnson or Corbyn.

    Yesterday, the Liberal Democrats filed legal proceedings against ITV.

    They have refused to include Jo Swinson in their Leaders Debate numerous times. This is despite Jo being the leader of the biggest and strongest Remain party in the country.
