    Two police officers on patrol.

    The Liberal Democrats are making a new commitment to fighting knife crime.

    No parent should have to bury their child.

    It's crushing to see it happening so much in the news. Knife crime has become an epidemic on our streets. In 2017-18, over 800 teenagers were admitted to hospital with stab wounds.

    There are various causes - but the Conservatives' drastic cuts to our police have made things much worse. As have youth service closures due to the Tories' cuts to local government.

  • Scales of Justice in a courtroom.

    Our justice system is failing the vulnerable,
    and we should all be embarrassed about it.


    Lawyers are expensive, and our justice system is failing those who can't afford them.

    Legal aid spending in England and Wales has been cut by £933 million in the last eight years. And as a direct result, we've seen huge reductions in support.

    Article: Mar 3, 2019
    By Leicester Liberal Democrats

    Emily Thornberry has been quoted as saying "She'd rather die than leave the Labour Party" after defections from the Labour Party to the new Independent Group.

    Aylestone Liberal Democrat Ward Councillor, Nigel Porter questions if she is being serious and asks if she would actually die than leave the Labour Party?

  • Article: Feb 24, 2019

    We have been calling for a realignment of politics for decades. I have welcomed the courageous move by 11 Members of Parliament to sit as independents. We now must seize the moment and maximise this opportunity to reshape British politics.

    Those MPs who have defected to the newly formed "Independent Group" come from different political traditions to our own. We should respect them for being honest about the fact that their former parties no longer articulate their values. Thankfully, our party, is different and still articulates the values that we have always held. In the politics of Brexit, we agree on a lot and have a shared desire to see a People's Vote. We shall cooperate in achieving that.

  • Article: Feb 12, 2019

    Despite telling Labour conference he would pursue a People's Vote if he could not secure a General Election, Jeremy Corbyn is now offering support for Theresa May's Brexit.

    His support is coming at the cost of people's jobs, our NHS and the environment - he's just missing in action. We've had enough.
